Mini Stats and I have just got back from seeing Avatar. Girls are away for the night so we had a boys night out!

It's a superb film, I was very impressed on a number of fronts. I'd heard a bit about it, seen snatches of a trailer, but didn't really have a grip on the story before I saw it, which is nice.

It's a bit of everything really - good (Na'vi) v evil (humans - well most of them), technology v simplicity, greed (humans again) v sanctity of life, money (humans....) v get the picture (sic).

The CGI is (generally) hellishly impressive although the "tree of rope lights" was a bit naff (IMHO), and whilst most of the time the 3D (yes we all wear sunglasses all the way through) isn't at cartoon "in your face" level, it's subtle enough to make a big difference to the viewing experience.

It's a long film too at 162 minutes, but whilst it feels long, it doesn't feel overly lengthy.

Anyhow, we both thoroughly enjoyed it, and if you haven't seen it yet I recommend you do. Just make sure you don't drink too much, and have a wee before you go in.
