I WANT A BIG TALL BLUE BODY!
Okay, I'm going to try not to write a movie review. Given that Karen and I probably go to a maximum of three movies a year in movie theaters and usually just rent old movies when we do get the itch to see a movie, I'm not sure I'm qualified as a movie critic.
I also don't like it much when people tell me that I really need to see this movie or that movie because it is the funniest or best movie they have ever seen. Because then, if I do happen to see the movie, expecting it to be the best movie ever, I am sure to be disappointed because even if it is a really good movie...it may not be the best.
But Karen and I went to see the new super-hyped Avatar yesterday. Of course, we paid the extra money to see it in 3-D IMAX. Brian and Melody loved it the weekend end before but Karen and I figured it was kind of a guy-flick super graphic shoot-em-up which is not the kind of movie Karen likes.
And she admited after we left the theater that she had only gone to it because she knew I wanted to see it and she wanted to go with me. She had expected to hate it. But it turned out the loved it! I loved it!
I can also understand why there is a growing political undercurrent that says it has a political agenda. Mostly this undercurrent is being put forth by people who don't believe in global warming and are convinced that our God is the God of football games and the U.S. marines and all other Gods are false Gods.
Dang it, I was going to try and not write political commentary either.
And this seems to be turning into both. But...
1. Avatar has now become my favorite movie of all-time.
2. I wish everyone would make love not war. (Gee, that sounds like the 1960's)
3. I really really really want to have a big, tall, blue body with filaments in my tail that can intertwine with other filaments and tap me into other lifeforms.
