Except it was, actually, because in the three hours I had to wait, I went to see Avatar.
I was not psyched about it.
I went solely because it was the only movie that happened to be showing in the window of time I had available.
But here's the thing: Avatar is amazing. Astounding, really. Not because the script is so good, or the acting will bowl anybody over (although CCH Pounder ROCKS the blue folks' language), but because the effects are beyond anything I could ever imagine.
Hello, 3-D! Turns out I'm a fan. Two dimensions are so old school, so last century, so passe.
And can we talk about how GORGEOUS Avatar is? Seriously, I'm running out of superlatives. This is starting to get embarrassing. Someone MAKE ME STOP.
Honestly. I've never seen anything like it. I can't even tell you.
You really must see for yourself.
