Avatar in 3D
First "modern" movie I've seen in 3-D, and it was pretty impressive, visually. A far cry from the 3-D flicks of yore, which gave you a headache in the first five minutes. An entertaining enough movie overall, though the story and its slam-bang heavy-handed political parallels were distastefully stereotypical, not to mention simplistic. I'm glad I saw it once — in 3-D — but much like Cameron's The Abyss, now that I have, I don't think I'll have any interest in seeing it again, particularly not on a smaller screen.
