So I dropped off two of my kids today to see Avatar at a screen that was showing it in IMAX. We were there 40 minutes early, had pre-ordered the tickets, and the line for the movie was wrapped around the back concession stand. This movie's appeal is unreal. Despite the comparisons to Pocahontas and Dances With Wolves, people love this film. When will the crowds abate? The idea that Cameron's going to make 2 more of these bad boys is mind-blowing for a couple reasons, the least of which is the money it will make him. How about the technology? If this film looks this incredible now, imagine what A2 will look like? What about A3? Will Cameron go the Lucas route? That is to say, if George is to be believed, purposely making all movies in the series with similar FX so they look familial? I doubt it. This guy opened up Pandora's Box (I know, bad intended pun...so sue me) with this flick. I can't wait to see what movies look like a year from now. I liked it so much I changed my avatar, too.
