We took the squints and families to see Avatar in 3D this afternoon. The 3D was actually very good and I left the movie headache free, which is a big deal for me. It has awesomely rich effects and a dreamlike feel. It reminded me of the worlds of Myst and Riven, and I was as impressed with Avatar visually as I was with those games when they came out. The story reminded me of a combination the kid's animated movie called Ferngully, my kids used to watch years ago when VHS was still available, Disney's Pocahontas and Orson Scott Card's Speaker for the Dead. Still it was very entertaining and we all had a good time. Blacksono would have really enjoyed the "color correction" if he would been able to come with us.

Go see it. In 3D.
