    Those things are like clown glasses. How big is your head?

    The glasses were like these. The lenses themselves are actually kinda small.



    When I went to another theater I saw the glasses in the return bin that looked like this which seem to have a wider view.

    The latter seemed more comfortable for 3D viewing. I'd hate to receive the former~

    I always thought it was more of a Fern Gully rip off but that is dead on. I think it's a mix of both x100^5 CG

    Plenty of laughs there, thanks! What a read to start a Wednesday.. But.. but.. but Pocahontas never had that croaking insects that twirls its bioluminescent wing/glider round and round, and John Smith wasn't a paraplegic.

    (I was writing a big essay about the hipocresy of people complaining or criticizing Avatar's plot, but then realized nobody would read it anyway)

    Loved this movie. i hyped it up alot around here and i think it followed through on the promises.

    Also storyline wise, i think it was less dances with wolves and more the last samurai.

    I never realized how prolific this plot line was. When was the last original plot created?

    this is opening a whole new can of worms, but creating a truely new storyline is really close to impossible. We as a society have been so influenced by so much entertainment and media through the years that anytime we see a new movie, or listen to a new song its easy to see comparisons to something else. This is not a big issue for me, i can go to see avatar and completely ignore everything else thats like it, However its the people that need to be sour grapes and think less of a movie because it has similar plot points to something else, or a guitar rift sounds the same as something metallica did 13 years ago or some dumb ****.

    The best example of the storyline thing is is the Heroes journey: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heroes_journey

    Basically you can compare a movie like starwars to a movie like harry potter, despite the fact they are very different.

    I want to see it in 2D imax really bad. No one plays it like that though.

    I'm definitely seeing it in theater again.

    Yeah I want to see it without having to wear glasses.

    another plot comparison- just proves that everyone gets stuff from everyone.
