Seen it?

Have you seen Avatar? I thinking most of you have since apparently it's the highest grossing movie of all time. Now Josh and I are one of the multitudes that have helped it reach that ranking. It took us several tries to get there. The first two attempts we were rejected with the blinking "sold out" at the ticket booth. We decided to just buy the tickets in the afternoon and see it in the evening - it worked. We saw it this Saturday at the very front of the theater with the music pounding in our ears.

Even if you haven't seen it, you might know the story already. How's that you say? Well, it's one part FernGully, one part Pocahontas,Β one part Dances with Wolves, and one part Star Wars. Okay, maybe throw in some Last of the Mohicans. Yes, my friends, it's a combination of these movies. Top it with some major themes like religion, evil corporations, and go green. Wait, wait...don't take any of this the wrong way; I did enjoy the film. The 3D special effects were awesome and the Avatar concept was very well done. I'm glad I saw it in the theater and got to see it in all it's glory. It was a great action flick for sure. And I always enjoy the movie-going experience (especially when I still have gift certificates - dang, movies and 3D is expensive!). Oh, and it was quite funny to see Phoebe's brother in Friends playing the big Corporate guy - HA!

Anyway, fun movie, fun times, and I'm glad I saw it in theaters. Not to mention, I got Thai food beforehand - Yum yum!
