Jim Smetchland Reviews: Avatar

Went to the theatre to see Avatar last night! Seeing this flick in the Imax theatre is really the way to go! Biggest budget in movie history, the special effects are amazing! You’ll also get a cool pair of 3D glasses; I saw movie goers marvelling with these paper toys as I entered the theatre across the hall showing Up in the Air with George Clooney. Seems everyone else had the same idea i had, Avatar was sold out. So Clooney is a consultant hired to fire people in this one, it gets a bit dark and depressing at times. This is one of those movies where everybody is bad but they’re charming so its OK. Arrested Development guy was in it, Davey whatever the funny guy from Tropic Thunder, a chick from Twilight, also J.K. Simmons and Sam Elliot who are both cool (old guys you’d recognize easily). The movie looked really good visually, and the plot worked. . . .I don’t recall the music. It wasn’t a crap romance and it had a little depth. I’m glad i went to see Avatar.

I stole a pair of glasses from some kid on the way out.

    Saw avatar and wondered if I am my Souls avatar. Interesting thought, Me being ‘me’ in that way.

    Really enjoyed the inclusion of the two mythological trees in the plot. The DNA like staircase tree being destroyed by the exploiters of the ark and the supra natural tree of life or the soul being threatened by the same but saved.

    We will see more in the future of these archaic models.

    All the best to you in the midst of snow. 2009 was a blogging year. I’ll be blogging you in 2010

    Thanks Exuvia, you’re the best. Now i really wish i’d seen avatar, it really does sound good. If I am my souls avatar. . . .than what am I?

    Its great that sometimes, only sometimes, hollywood puts out something that makes the average viewer start questioning the human situation. Only with a little inquiry are people ever going to wake up to the reality of our very precarious position in the universe.
