Did anyone see Avatar yet? I heard it's truly amazing, but you have to watch the 3D version. We tried to go see it on saturday but it was sold out.

The best movie I have ever seen HANDS DOWN!!!!! I'm going to see it again. Has a great story and ground breaking special effects. You MUST see it in a theater in 3D or you will miss out.
Not being a special effects geek, I'm not chomping at the bit to see this one, but I did manage to see 3 movies over the holidays...which should be rated as rent-only:
Up In The Air
Aye saw it opening weekend and it is amazing. Good story line, lots of action, drama, suspense, romance even.
The 3D is truly amazing. I was a little skeptical since every 3d movie I've tried to see has been kinda gimmicky and not really 3d. Even from a visual person in the field the 3d blew my mind.
Even the trailers before the show are in 3d to get you warmed up. The Alice in Wonderland one especially with the cat coming out of the screen looked real.
Hope you can make it, think the only place showing it in digital 3d is Cinema Deluxe 18 in Maumee.
We're going up to see it on the IMAX in Ann Arbor later this week.
Not much into Sci-Fi, I am really looking forward to The Lovely Bones, A Single Man and The Hurt Locker.
Saw it in 3D. It was expensive, but worth the money I think. The graphics are breathtaking and though it was a very long movie, I was on the edge of my seat most of the time. The storyline/plot isn't particularly new, but is an action-packed take on being environmentally friendly. I give it the thumbs up on seeing it in theater. Wouldn't be worth it to rent at home though I don't think. Really, the visual effects are what you're going for.
Make sure you call before you make the trip. My family drove up there Saturday only to find out that the IMAX was broken. I saw it in IMAX the Tuesday prior and had to wait 30 minutes for them to fix whatever was broken
good call, thanks. Im hoping that the midweek matinee will be working and a relatively empty theater
Drove up to Ann Arbor last Friday to see it on the IMAX and the 3D projection system was broken. So do as Steve says and call beforehand. As far as the movie goes, I was totally underwhelemed. I may be one of the unwashed but I thought I was watching a $300 million dollar western. After awhile, the 3D effects kinda become the norm and fade into the background. So, all you are left with is the story. And as far as the story goes (IMHO) it's thin and predictable. I must have missed something since the movie has already made over 1 billion worldwide. Oh well, to each his own.
Im after the CG, and I'd watch a 300 million western!
...I HATE calling movie theatres!! the only phone number they publish is the one with the showtimes message!
billy: no kidding. I couldn't find a real number for Maumee 18 a while back and tried the number on their website. Ended up taking me somewhere else and tried to charge my cell phone account for some $9/month ringtone thing. Had to call verizon to block it.
Ended up driving to the theatre, guess the online ticket system is a 3rd party service. If you ask one of the people there they'll give you a card with a direct, to a real person, number it rather than the automated system.
Random $0.02 :)
Ryan - I'm looking forward to The Lovely Bones as well.
When I read the book, I had a hard time putting it down. Start to finish in 2 sittings.
The Lovely Bones looks great, can't wait to see it too. Didn't know it was a book though, thanks for the heads up mom2 will check Books-a-million tomorrow for a copy.
