Made it to Avatar tonight. Went with two friends who had not yet seen it. I think I enjoyed the movie even more the second time. I could just enjoy the gorgeous setting and not worry about what would happen to all the characters.
As for its nomination for Best Picture, I wouldn’t vote for it. It’s a great movie to watch, but not the best picture. But I tell you, it better darn well win for special effects. It’s amazing to look at.
