OMFG It was awesome!!! I absolutely loved it! The 3D just added to the experience, it looked brilliant. The storyline was a bit predictable but I think it was one of my top 2009 movies.

I need to get it when it comes out on blu ray. You know what, I might go watch it again.

Seen it on imax 3d today. Special effects are years beyond anything else (typical Cameron movie ^^). Makes the planet earth series on blu-ray look fake . I also liked how they used the 3d just to create a more realistic depth of field and not some random crap flying 'into' the cinema.

The story is super cheesy yea (a bit like the Abyss without the water and more action) and so are the dialogues, but its a Cameron movie after all

I would rate it below Terminator 2, Terminator and Aliens, around the same level as True Lies and above the Abyss and Titanic.

Technically its a look into the future and therefor it will be seen as an important movie, but its not like the Matrix, Terminator or Die Hard for example which changed moviemaking on more levels than just the techincal part.

Saw it at midnight, it's Dances With Wolves/Last Samurai (boo colonialism!) crossed with Aliens with the best visuals in a movie to date. The N'avi seemed to be very similar the Aiel from the Wheel of Time series of books, even their salutation is the same, "I see you." The Aiel were also especially tall and had a tribal system, which is later united by your typical "chosen one" type story.

Story was predictable, visually stunning though. It's a don't miss in the theater just because of the visuals.

Very effect-ive! Titanic kiddie caca. Son and pals pronounced it: "Ho-hum. Video game without the controller."

(I left my brain at the ticket booth.)

Hmm when I saw it, it was in Dolby Digital 3D. At the cinema's my friends went to see it at, it was RealD. Is there that much difference between the three technologies?

James Cameron would never, ever attempt a heavy handed political allegory. Get ouda heer wit dat crap!

I saw it. The verdict is out people. Even a jaded movie goer like myself, was taken back by the visual splendor. The audience with me, gasped several times. It was amazing in that way.

Real 3d is the projection system, Dolby Digital is the sound system. the two are not related in any way.

Ahh .. aparrently there is a dolby 3d.. uses some weird color filter thingy.. Not used in the US as far as I know.. maybe its a licensing issue. Real 3d is purported to be the best format for 3D currently on the market.

Yes. It was most definitely Dolby Digital 3D technology. The glasses had Dolby Digital 3D written on them.

I'm planning to catch it in Imax 3D over the weekend. Dialogue and story are hugely important to me, but I really want to see the visual spectacle.

Erik, I was thinking Imax 3d till I read this.. and recalled that the 3d was far better when I sawa movie in Read D (Coraline) than the Imax 3D (Polar Express) I last saw.. The Real D gave less ghosting and greater depth (and more comfy glasses).. plus as avatar was shot digitally.. they just blew up the frames for Imax.. no better picture, just bigger.

Anyhoo.. take a read.
