Definitely going to the theater for "Book of Eli" have read great things about it. Still haven't decided if I'm going to see "Avatar" in the theater, yet.

Saw Avatar in 3D last night. I thought it was good, but the wife thought it was great. I thought the story was unoriginal and predictable. The visuals were amazing though.

Thanks for the review, I trust yours more than I trust the critics. I may just wait for DVD, I don't mind if I get to see it in 3D or not.

The 3D was an amazing part of the experience, but if you don't mind seeing it without it then it would be a good home movie as long as you see it on a HD tv on Blu Ray. The visuals really need that high def to really amaze you. It would be OK on a regular TV, but it would not blow you away like the HD will.

Since DH retired we have all the bells and whistles at home It's like sitting in the theater anyway, just don't have to fight a crowd or walk on sticky floors. I do miss audience reaction, though!

You will love it at home then. It is a long movie so being comfortable will be a huge plus!

My parents and I went to the movies last week and saw Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. It was pretty cute and funny.

Just hooked up my brand new blu ray player and borrowed the most recent batman movie from my neighbor. Gotta love all the explosions and gadgets.

That was my first Blu Ray movie Andy. It is a good one to watch!

If you are into nature type things, check out the Planet Earth series on Blu Ray. It is the most amazing thing I have ever seen on a screen. I put it on in the background a lot on mute just for the amazing images.
