I went to see Avatar at the IMAX in 3d. As shitty as the story/characters/dialogue and every thing else was, it was just so visually impressive and such an immersive experience that I couldn't help but love it. The 3d effects were outstanding, I had my eyes and mouth wide open almost throughout the entire film. It probably would have been a better film if all of the characters were just mute and didn't say any thing, ever.
Exactly. As a tech demo... fantastic. ( if artistically, a bit sterile ).
As a film?... awful. Just awful.
What happened to James Cameron. From Terminator and Aliens... to Titanic and Avatar. The better the tech, the worse the movies. Go figure.
