I was fortunate to score a free ticket to an advance screening of Avatar tonight. It was shown in 3D and they also gave away a large popcorn and drink . Anyway, it is the best movie I've seen in a long time. What can I compare it to with what I've seen this year.... District 9. I wasn't all that impressed with District 9 and is rubbish compared to Avatar. The Day The Earth Stood Still. I thought it was ok but again nothing compared to Avatar. Go and see it if you can. It's a very good one. It goes for about 2.5 hours but it doesn't seem like it. When it finished, I was expecting to see 7:45 on my watch (it started just after 6:00) instead of 8:40. Oh, I saw Zombieland last week and if you like zombie movies then this one is for you. Once I quickly got used to the brutal killings and blood and guts (just what I was expecting from it) then I laughed my head off a number of times. It has some quite funny parts. This is diverting the attention from Avatar. Check it out!
