Well i saw the movie in 3d on friday and i for one really enjoyed it. Yes the plot was a little predictable, but the plot was kind of revealed from the trailers. I really enjoyed the pace of the film, how it took the time to show the protagonist learning the culture. Rather than a rushed montage that i am used to seeing of late. I really enjoyed how the 3d ib the movie was subtle and helped to add to depth of certain scenes. As opposed to having things just randomly pop out at you. I will admit that it doesn't have the greatest story in world, but it is one of the better movies i have seen this year. Especially when compared to movies like transformers 2 which wowed me while i was in the cinema, but is honestly a horrible movie. I am going to see avatar again tomorrow with my gf and i honestly cant wait to see it again. It is the one "major" movie this year that exceeded my expectations

To qualify my statements i am 21 and probably the exact target audience of this movie and i am sucker for the fantasy genre, so i agree this movie is sci-fantasy more than sci-fi. I saw blade runner a long time ago but i think i might have to watch it again based on the good reviews i am seeing here. And sorry to sound like an idiot what book is blade runner based on?

Oh sure, if you wish to play, "the definition of is is." It's wrong to label Avatar as a legitimate science fiction film and an example of how you haven't seen the movie yet wish to speak about it.

Just saw it last night. Great movie, and the best blockbuster in quite a while. Predictable plot and cringe-worthy dialogue, but very entertaining and quite a spectacle. This movie also made me a 100% believer that 3-d can be more than a gimmick. I really thought that the 3d added to the film and to my enjoyment, but I wasn't constantly thinking "whoa! 3-D!". It just made me more immersed. Too bad other films havent taken it to this level yet.

Just looking at the trailers and the comments here I'm so not seeing this movie.

I found 3D to be a gimmick at best.

Man honestly I don't know what got into James Cameron's head. After Titanic I guess he went into the far side.

Oh well, your loss... This Real 3D is the best 3D I've ever seen. From the glasses to near images to outdoor panoramas, it is the best implementation yet. Normally, 3D has a tendency to make my head hurt and even nauseate me. I acclimated to this quickly, the glasses are actual glasses, and soon I didn't even think about it. It just was...

There is one scene where they are riding their flying animals (like the Pern dragons, but without flame... think big raptors with wings and a neural connection) and are flying down a sheer cliff that is absolutely worth the price of admission.

I just hope that the Real 3D "non-gimmick" is part of the DVD package.

3D for your DVD or Bluray? I doubt it.

The Avatar soundtrack 'the Score' is also very very very good! Im listening to it right now and its also a masterpiece!

I got it 'free' but going to search for a copy tomorrow.. The official thing doesn't send to the Netherlands

I saw it and it was good, where I live it was severely hyped.

I sat in the front row which kind of ruined the experience, cinema was too damn full.

Yes the standard is cut out. Hope it doesn´t mean I have to buy new expensive true 120 hertz lcd tvs to enjoy it. Most LCD TVs with 120hz are not really 120hz they are just doubling images and the real once costs like nothing else

As for player the PS 3 is promised to be updated for 3D support so home free on that front anyway.

As for 3D a gimmick. Yes everything that actually enhance immersion can be seen as a gimmick. Sound is not needed to tell a story you can use subtitles. Visuals black and white is just fine. You can tell a story in 2D in stop motion as well .

It all depends on the execution but surely the technique is good enough to add more then it ev takes away.
