I just saw Avatar last night. It was WAY better than I expected.
It was sort of a "Dances With Wolves" type of deal but with much better scenery. The imagery did not disappoint, in fact it was far better than I had heard it would be. LONG movie, though. The ending was a little predictable, but not a given.

1. Somebody owes Roger Dean a check, though.
All of the action seemed like it took place inside a Yes album cover to me.

2. gorgeous visually - but the plot was kinda trite, I thought
other than the interconnectedness with nature aspect.

3. I enjoyed it too.
It was much better than I thought it would be. Loved the visual effects.

4. Saw it in the theatre
in 3D and thought it would have been just as good in 2D. Interesting to watch but for 500m he could have hired some writers.

Saw it again on Netflix a few weeks ago and wasn't impressed. Didn't have legs for me.
