I’ve seen only rave reviews of James Cameron’s new movie, Avatar – all A’s, not even an A- from anyone. But still – I couldn’t help but be skeptical of the freaky blue people and the avatar premise seemed weak. Plus I was genuinely offended by the blatant promotion of the film in a recent episode of Bones, when the geeky trio of men are so excited to see the movie that they camp out in line for the best seats at a special screening.
But we had babysitters, and I wasn’t about to inflict New Moon on my husband (I love you too much for that, honey!). So I was surprised at how much I liked Avatar. Even though it was over 2 1/2 hours. The story is good, the special effects are truly tremendous, and it didn’t even seem overly long (though I did have to run out in the middle for a quick bathroom break). I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll just say that if you have three hours to spare, go see Avatar.
