Since I saw Avatar in the Solana Theatre for the first time this afternoon, it’s pretty much consumed my thoughts, stimulated my curiosity, and exhilarated my imagination to a whole new level. I walked in without any expectations, not knowing anything about the story line or what to expect. And as soon as the movie was over, I could not stop repeating the phrase “Best movie EVER!” It probably didn’t help that the people I came with had already seen Avatar three times.
I’m probably one of a very small minority of people who have waited this long to see Avatar. And never have I agreed more to the saying, ‘All Good Things Are Worth Waiting For.’
I think the last time I was so excited about a movie was when ’300′ came out 3 years ago. And as much as I loved that movie, I don’t think I was already setting another date to go re-watch it within the week. Today is Friday and I’m booking a date to go again on Sunday to watch it in an IMAX theatre. It’s no wonder Avatar has surpassed Titanic as the highest grossing film in history, taking more than $2 Billion worldwide. Avatar has become a cultural phenomenon.
