Movie Review: Avatar

January 10, 2010 at 8:53 pm 2 comments

Took the family to see Avatar (2D version).  The 2:40 run time went by fairly quickly though our youngest family member had to excuse herself twice to visit the facilities.  This film has been called “Dances with Smurfs” and “Pocahontas 2009” and perhaps other deragatory names that I haven’t run across.  The technical aspect of the film does live up to the hype.  Is it a game-changer on the same level as “The Jazz Singer”?  No.  But the influence of Avatar will be at least as great as “The Matrix” and the plethora of bullet-time shots used in films and commercials which followed.

However, I do prefer the original classic tale of the search for that scarce mineral “unobtainium”, or rather “upsidaisium” as it was originally known back in the day of The Bullwinkle and Rocky show.

    I have not seen it. A couple friends dubbed iit “Dances with Smurfs” (a reference to the blue perhaps).

    Last movie I got to see was Zombieland. Where’d the time go?

      Zombieland is a great movie … and will be out on DVD on Feb 2. Can’t wait.
