I saw Avatar in 3D yesterday.  It was pretty good.  Someone called it “Dances with Smurfs” – and I guess that’s a fair approximation, but there are plenty of differences.

I’d have to say the story was decent – not extremely awesome.  It had heroes & bad guys sure – but nothing amazing.  The visuals, on the other hand, were damn near mind blowing.  The fact that it was in 3D probably helped, but I was continually impressed with the amount of detail that I saw on the screen.  I’d have to say the animation succesfully navigated the uncanny valley, but I could still tell I was looking at animation.  That said, it’s probably the best animation I’ve ever seen.

8.5/10
