Movie Review – Avatar (PG-13)

I have to be completely honest about this review.  I seem to be one of only a handful of people worldwide to have not seen this movie yet.  I will admit I was wrong when I thought that this movie looked like any other Hollywood “pet” project, like “Battlefield Earth”, “Ishtar”, “Gigli”, or “Glitter”.  This looked like the kind of movie where the person driving the film is the only one that thinks the movie can be watchable.

Never the less, “Avatar” has gone on to break box office record after record.  Even “Titanic” can not match up to the power of “Avatar”.  Checking the most recent reports from http://www.boxofficemojo, a movie fanatic’s dream site, even accounting for inflation, “Avatar” ranks up with films like “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, and “The Sting”.

I get it.  It is a great film.  Take a chance (and a Dramamine) and watch the movie.  I think I will.  This week in fact.  At an IMAX Theater in Los Angeles while on vacation.  I hope it is worth the money…
