Avatar...again... :D

Yesterday Nate had some friends over to play Heroscape. Knowing the little boys would be thoroughly engrossed in the game as well and that Nate didn't want to watch Avatar in the theater again, I set out to find some folks to watch it with me. Some ''silly'' people didn't want to watch it again, *grin*. I can understand though, spending money on the theater is usually not a top priority around here, especially not to see something more than once.

But, I knew of a few crazies who would go again, even though they had already watched it more times than I had. It worked out fun, a bunch of spouses were otherwise involved last night so we had four "halves" going to the movies together (Myself, Bear, Janis, and Sue). We also ran into Melissa (without Shiloh, haha--Hi Melissa!) and her brother Josh. :)

A good time was had by all. Almost all (sorry you got motion sick Melissa, next time have us try praying for you before you sneak out!)

I'm really glad I went for the third (Yes! THIRD) time. The first time we watched in 2d and it was great and all. The second time we watched in 3d, but I was really tired and my glasses were scratched so a number of scenes were blurry and I kept getting dizzy. This time I had better glasses plus when I got dizzy the first time Bear put his hand on my head and said "No!" and that was the end of it, LOL.

The line that is sticking with me most this time (besides, of course, "Everything is backwards now...Like out there is the real world and in here is the dream." oooh, I could talk about this one for a while) was this one...

"Sometimes your whole life boils down to one insane move."


Maybe later I'll post some of my thoughts about the movie, but right now I have to go help a little boy sound out some words ;)

I went to see that movie in 3D. I even sat in the front row and still nothing. On cartoon 3D I can see it somewhat if I am real close. Stupid monocular vision.

Definitely rent it, if you can enjoy it with the sci-fi element. The plot is actually a lot like Dances With Wolves in some ways.

Matt, was it fuzzy? Or just 2D? Nate had a lot of trouble when he watched it in 3D, and mentioned something about his eyes, but he does not have a lazy eye. I think it was more the scratched glasses and positioning in the theater.

It wasn't fuzzy at all, it was just 2D. Its okay :)

Just to be mischevious (sp?)
