It’s been pouring down rain all day here in NYC, so I finally succumbed to peer pressure and took myself to a showing of Avatar in 3D at a local theater ($18, please). As much as it pains me to admit, Avatar was a terrific movie experience. At one point during a major battle scene, the 3D was so convincing I instinctively reached up to wipe forest debris from my face. Realistic! Aside from having a great story and special effects from another planet, I understand the film is really pissing off the Right Wing Nut Jobs out there. I am not one to become obsessed with sci-fi/fantasy movies, but that is reason enough to see it as many times as possible! Avatar!
