I saw Avatar tonight. The movie was good... let's just get that out of the way. It was worth the money I paid for the ticket. The 3D was great - even from the side of the theater. BUT it was way too long and the script could be pretty cheese ball. What're you gonna do... it's sci-fi. James Cameron did produced a good movie.

I also don't know if 3D is anything more than a gimmick. Plus it makes people sick. I got to admit I started feeling nauseous during a slow scene before the climax of the movie. Once the action picked up I snapped out of it and enjoyed the rest of it.

Even without the 3D, Avatar would have been an incredible visual achievement. And I don't care what anyone thinks; a blue Zoe Saldaña with a tail and pointy ears for some reason is hot. It's like when I was a kid the weirdness of having the hots for Kirstie Alley and Robin Curtis as Saavik the Vulcan woman in Star Trek II & III. First alien chick I ever wanted to go to third base with. Am I sick for that? Anyway...

I think had the script been slightly better and the length cut down so I'm not walking out of the movie theater cross-eyed it would have been perfect. I'd go see it again though. I'd just take an unofficial intermission and go smoke a cigarette.
