The gushing, unabashed, over-the-moon praise I've heard this weekend from more average movie-goers (as in not Intenrnet douchebags) tells me Avatar will have legs through the holidays at least. (And I really liked it too.)

AVATAR was Awesome in IMAX 3D saw it friday night and i was in awe of the ultra realistic CGI and the amazing 3D! I mean i am mostly speechless and can only say it was the most amazing and entertaining movie experience i have had prolly ever!! Great characters and great acting. Sam Worthington rocked and Sigorney Weaver did a great job! And have to say for once i wasnt annoyed by Michelle Rodriguez in a movie! lol Go Avatar! Praise James Cameron and his massive talent. And that Dbag who compared him to Michael Bay earlier on this thread...stop stealing everyone elses oxygen please!

Thanks man but if songs should be song it should be in praise of the one called Wiseguy562.

Don't worry about the snow storm.  Everybody who couldn't see it this weekend will catch it next week.

Avatar was great! Excellent visuals, beyond anything done so far, made the whole experience simply incredible! James Cameron has done it again, and I must say, I haven't seen a film like this ever. While the story was rather weak, it was the execution of the story, and the acting, especially Weaver and Worthington, that kept this from being just a mediocre Sci-Fi flick. This is a movie for the ages, and will stand the test of time as well.

It didn't quite "own" the box office as some predicted, but it did very well considering a lot of the country is under snow and a lot of people couldn't get out to see it. That'll change this coming weekend when families need to get out of the house after Christmas and Avatar will own next weekend for sure!

This was a great movie experince, and I think it will be a huge hit on the scale of TDK for sure.

I think Holmes and Avatar will be neck and neck next weekend.  It will be a close one either way.  And the dumb chipmunks sequel will take away from both since it will surely have parents taking their kids in droves to see that.

Saw it in IMAX 3D (the new multiplex kind though), and it was a wonder to behold. The technology Cameron put into it is all on the screen. You truly can't distinguish CG from live action. It's not necessary to see it in 3D but it does add to the enjoyment.

Yes, the plot can be seen as the Dances with Navi'i but there is nothing wrong with that. This type of story always needs top be re-told like many others from human experience. My only problem was in execution. The story hits all the subtley of a sledgehammer with very broad simplistic characters. I'm personally kind of tired of the Villains With No Redeeming Value idea. The story very much needed sutble strokes and much more nuance and was disappointed that Cameron didn't do that.

Still it is a fantastic experience and as someone else noted, my audience applauded. Will see it again in the theatre.

I saw it again in 3d with some friends sun,  just for kicks.  I didnt like it any more or less in 3d. 

it was a little long for the kids in the theatre. 

In response to this movie changing cinema forever,  I think they are 100% right.  But not for the reasons everyone is listing. 

A few years ago,  there was an article saying in 20 years,  actors would be obsolete.  They would all be cgi.  Voice actors would be the primary usage.  Leading characters in movies,  would be totally computer generated, which would mean perfect looks,  and un-choreographical action.

Now,  i think were a long way from there.  However,  I do think this is that first step,  towards that. 

While I can not imagine a time when we would not need actors at all,  I can see how these types of advancements could mean some sci-fi genre films,  could be easier created using cgi than actors.  Like the lord of the rings.

While one of my favore trilogies,  I can see how in 10 years,  they could make that film 100% cgi with only paying the voice actors the minimums. 

The one  thing that keeps actors relevant for a long tiem to come, is that to my knowledge, and im a software developer by day, there are no truely realistic dialog generators yet.  Ive yet to see any programs that can do decent speeach rendition.
