This is coming a little late, but I wanted to make mention that if you haven’t seen Avatar you should definitely go. I didn’t really have much interest in it, nor did I know anything about the story, but after seeing it three times I can say it’s a great, great movie. The biggest reason I saw it three times is that I’ve never seen effective 3D before. I think the last movie I saw in 3D was Jaws. This really felt like 3D. I don’t know if I can justify it as a good financial decision to see the same movie three times, but consider that I typically don’t go to the movies much, it seemed reasonable for a splurge.

Definately see Avatar more than once. I don’t go to too many movies either but I can’t wait to go see it again. My son (who works as a special effects artist for a well known gaming company) and is not easily impressed, was majorly impressed by the effects and the 3-d. Its a glimpse of the technological future of movies.
