Yes I did! Was eating Easter dinner with the fam when suddenly the chandelier began to sway. I've lived in San Diego, experienced a 6.0 before, and for whatever the reason, it just didn't register. CRAZY to feel it in TUCSON! Happy Easter!

Re: “Full Avatar Review!

EllaFelix, that's cool to toot your film student horn. War and Peace cost US$100 million back in the 1960s. If inflation is taken into account, that would be US$700 million today - so you're 1/2 right, 1/2 wrong in reciting what was presented to you in class. It all depends on how you look at it. I'm pointing out the current most expensive film ever made in the 21st century. BTW, I studied art - and I learned something that brings strong emotion forward and creates a stir of controversy - whether you like the piece or hate it - has done its job. It's a success if people are talking about it.

Re: “Full Avatar Review!


You didn’t mention “Avatar’s” budget exceeded the most expensive film ever made, “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End”. With a budget estimated over $300 million, I think “Avatar” gets more bang for its buck.

I just saw “Avatar” last night and was absolutely mesmerized! A kaleidoscope of hyper-vivid imagery, this tops every visually stunning film I've ever seen. I went into the theatre a little suspicious and worried a good storyline might have been lost in the digital hoopla. This film did not disappoint. Perhaps you hit the nail on the head. It could have been written by a 5th grader (and that’s the genius of it); Cameron keeps the message clear and concise – easy enough for ANYONE to understand. It’s a message of love and peace; something everyone should and can relate to. I’m glad someone is finally addressing the rainforest/global environmental issues in epic proportions on the big screen to question and evaluate man’s neglect and abuse of the earth. Beyond a poignant message, it gives us something really astounding and beautiful to look at along the way. It’s a sensory overload, a revolutionary cinematic experience to process - it dazzles retinas!

This is a MUST SEE on the big screen – and do make sure you opt for 3-D. It’s a mind-blowing masterpiece. This is film history being made. It has changed moviemaking as we know it. For me, a step forward like this in technological movie screen magic hasn't been felt quite like this since “Jurassic Park” (remember how freaking cool that movie was at the time?). Cameron and crew have set the bar for more awe-inspiring movies to come.

This film IS worth seeing - you can bet your Na’vi thong on it.
