Ah, the laryngitis spell I picked up last week (on Christmas Day, nonetheless!) is still lingering. In fact, I’m still a bit down for the count with a bit of a cold and the requisite fatigue that comes with it. I’m sure that our 4.5 hour jaunt to watch Avatar (commute + almost 3 hour length 3D movie) may have hindered my speedy recovery but the show was well worth catching. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi or going to the theater as I prefer watching movies in the comfort of my home. Nevertheless, Avatar is one flick I’d wholeheartedly recommend, especially if you can drive yourself to an IMAX theater that’s showing it.
While some people are happy to wax poetic about the blatant political and social messages this movie is aiming to inflict upon the public, I instead, choose to focus on the awesome special effects that probably took a decade or so to implement. I do think that all the hype you’ve heard about it is well substantiated and deserved. Just watch out for the bit of cheese that comes with some of the dialogue. 🙂
The James Cameron film: Avatar
For fun, I thought to take a look at Wikipedia’s list of top grossing films worldwide. I wonder where this latest James Cameron creation will end up? His other movie, Titanic, is currently the biggest grosser in history, having pulled in an astounding $1,842,879,955. That’s almost 2 billion dollars.
