FIRST : 3-D Movie
So I finally got around to seeing Avatar. I was waiting for the crowds to die down a bit, but surprisingly, even on a Wednesday evening the theater was packed. At least the top half anyway, who really sits in the bottom rows unless they really have to right?
This was my first time watching a movie in 3-D, and I'm glad I waited until this movie to do so. It took a little while for my brain to adjust to the fact that when I looked at something in the foreground that no matter how hard my eyes tried they weren't going to focus. I'm glad that it wasn't filled with gimmicky effects either. You know, blatantly throwing things out towards the audience. There was none of that "it's in 3-D, so we'd better be using it constantly". Everything was fairly passive so as to let the audience really sink into this beautiful environment.
I remember there were a few instances where I was like "whoah, ha, that was just the movie". For example when a character would walk into frame from the foreground or around the end there was some chanting and their hands and arms were raised into the air. I almost told the people in front of me to "sit down" or "put your hands down". It was a great movie, and a lot of fun to watch. The price tag's a bit steep, but if you're ever going to see a 3-D movie, go check out Avatar.
Oh, and for 12 bucks, I sure as fuck kept my glasses
Even if the sun will shoot a spear into my eye if I wear them outdoors.
