We went and saw Avatar in the theater. I was hesitant about the 3D but did okay. There were times my acrophobia kicked in but otherwise tolerated it fine. The plot had a lot of holes and the characters were so over-the-top stereotyped. Outside of the special effects, I was a bit disappointed.

I totally agree, jabhur, that most books are far better than the movie versions...if there is any movie that in my personal opinion far exceeded the book it's probably Emma Thompson's "Sense and Sensibility" .......

That is one of my favorites! Whenever I want to sing my lungs out and get happy, I put that one on! I got to see two different local productions of it when I lived in California, and they were great too.

Very Funny!

Was in bed most of the Sunday, 2012, it was good to watch it, of course today I barely remember what it was about due to it's stupidity.

Also Saturdasy night we saw Changling.
What a sad, scary story. It was really good movie.

Eagle Eye...enjoyed it, fast paced, edge of your seat action. Want to see "Old Dogs" and "The Blind Side".
