I watched the trailers, loved them in fact, and devoured the screenshots with hungry eyes. I was hooked on Avatar before I had seen it. The 3D thing didn’t matter to me, the storyline, settings and fresh new epicness were what I wanted to see.
With drink and popcorn in hand, prime seats grabbed, I donned my 3D specs and prepared to enjoy a movie I had been so eager to see I knew I was going to enjoy it regardless of the shit the critics were already throwing at it (more on that subject in a moment). I am happy to say I loved every last second of Avatar – the entire thing, opening credits to lights up was pure escapism, the very essence of what a night out at the movies is all about.
