"Avatar"

Previews: Beastly, Knight and Day, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Salt, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Robin Hood

Two thoughts on "Avatar," which I was not willing to shell out for to see it in 3D:
  1. Pretty!
  2. It's "Dances With Wolves" + "Starship Troopers" and not in the good way.
I was, overall, impressed with the visuals (mostly - apparently, no one will ever animate fire that looks really good up close) and completely, totally unimpressed with the story, which was a rehash of a dozen other "outsider joins "savage" community and finds himself" narratives. I didn't go into the movie looking for anything deep and meaningful, but it was just not good.
