First time I've been to a movie theater in years(watch the DVD's mostly).
Was quite impressed by it - good story too, somewhat Tolkienesque.
if you're going I'd recommend watching it in 3D/Imax, the special effects are quite spectacular.
Prolly wait for the DVD to watch it.
There is nothing new under the Sun - (even when it's the Sun of a different planet) - by which I mean the plot is predictable in places - but not so much so that you don't enjoy it.
I would definitely recommend it, on the big screen and in 3-D if you can.
Rather, it's a story you've heard before in a different guise.
pocahontas all over
I plan to buy the DVD but experience has taught me that if you wait a year after the release you can buy it for less than 1/2 price.
1 British pound = 1.49 U.S. dollars,
1 British pound = 2.10 N.Z. dollars.
That probably accounts for the change in price, though it still does seem to be a bit cheaper in the UK.
I have seen this movie . excellent movie to watch.
I admit I enjoyed this film a lot. It's absolutely spectacular.
It's a pity the script was so... typical.
I mean, the film offers a lot of visual and audio effects, but the story don't show us more that what we could have seen in "Mononoke princess" or "Dances with wolves" (and not treated at that level), with a lot of elements from other sourcers like "Dune".
Besides, for me, the main character is, with the script, the worst thing in the movie. It's very bad built up and his evolution comes very suddenly. In the first half of the movie he is a dreamer cripple guy who enjoys entering in Avatar, running, flying, seeing beautiful aliens... and then tells everything to the General. But, after the half of the movie, he becomes suddenly high conscious and he starts kicking asses.
The last battle seems also very long for me.
