TMR Movie Review: Avatar

It's the complete opposite here - Avatar lives up to its advance billing of being a spectacular motion picture in a way that the trailer couldn't possibly exhibit - meaning, word of mouth will sell this picture and the reported 100 million dollar marketing campaign is built to set that word of mouth in motion.

Had some time to see it yesterday....I sparked up & went to the 11:00 am IMAX 3D show...;) Very cool, loved the whole look of it, probably will not but the DVD, as I cannot see myself enjoying it without the huge screen/3D.
Looking forward to more of these movies, it was my first time @ an IMAX show.:cool:
