Avatar 3D - WOW!

Just got back from seeing Avatar in 3D at our local Vue


OK, the story is nothing special but, OMG, the impact of the 3D tech is incredible. I don't know what I expected but it was nothing compared to what we got! If anyone is thinking "yeah, yeah, yeah, I've seen that 3D stuff before and it's pretty average", they've got a shock coming. Sure there were the standard 'money' shots but forget those and you just sink into the entire environment.

I read somewhere that the number of cinemas which are geared to show 3D films has jumped from a fairly constant 20 or so to over 300 in the last 12-18 months and I think this film shows why. Assuming it makes a decent return (and I'm pretty sure it will), I suspect we're going to see a lot more 3D films in the coming years.

BTW, cinemas that can't handle 3D are showing this in 2D format, as well. My advice is to gives those a miss and look for 3D showings. Without the 3D it's just a pretty piece of sci-fi, with a weak script. With the 3D, it's still a weak script but forget that and enjoy 3 hours as a bystander in a strange new world that exists all around you.
