Avatar The Movie Goes Beyond What You Have Ever Seen Before

If I had two hands full of thumbs, Avatar the Movie,  would be a “TEN THUMBS UP” movie.

I saw it Saturday morning 12/19/09 at 9:45 am with my husband at the El Dorado Regal Cinema Theatres. We’re going back next weekend to watch it in IMAX — and since I haven’t ever seen a film in IMAX it will more than likely be a visual orgasm. Because that is exactly what this film is on a regular screen.

Avatar, the movie,  is so rich visually, that I don’t think our brains and our visual cortex actually “can handle” it’s visual depth without many seeings.  If ever there was a desire to get a HD tv and Blu-Ray player, when this movie makes it to disc, that will fuel my manifestation of these two items.

When writer and director James Cameron said “the movie Avatar will change the face of movie making forever” I thought he was having one of his “I’m-King-of-The-World-Moments” like he did after winning the academy awards.  But alas, he speaks the truth.

Avatar, the movie will forever change the ways that movies CAN BE MADE and it’s stunning graphics come to us from none other than THE WETA WORKSHOP, well known for their work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but that’s not when they first got started in film making.

The Weta Workshop has been around since 1987 and the first film in their filmology is Meet the Feebles 1989. Other well-known movies they have worked on include Jackson’s The Frighteners, 1996, Hellboy, 2003, Master and Commander, 2003, The Last Samurai, 2003, Kingdom of Heaven, 2004, Van Helsing, 2004, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, 2005, and Prince Caspian, 2008, The Lovely Bones, (Peter Jackson) just released and in production for the The Hobbit produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Guillermo del Toro, of Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth

I’ve already read somewhere that someone is calling this a “Christian” film.  This movie, spiritually, is so far beyond any religion that would like to claim it for its own — and frankly it speaks to the interconnectedness of all things — but those with Native American roots (or any aboriginal or shamanic culture) will greatly appreciate its major themes.

I don’t think this movie is recommended for the younger children, but those already into gaming of any sort, would most definitely appreciate this film.  I’d take a guess and say mature 8-9 year olds might find it fascinating, but the younger ones tend to get twitchy in their seats.

Whatever your plans this holiday season, you’ve got to see Avatar – the Movie — and I highly recommend seeing it in 3-D or IMAX.

Buy your tickets in advance (anywhere) and assure yourself of the seats
