"Avatar" Delivers, and That May Change Everything

"Avatar" Delivers, and That May Change Everything
by Sheryl Waxman

I just saw “Avatar.” And for the first time in a very long time, a movie that made a great, big promise delivered.

It’s been more than a year since I’ve been hearing that James Cameron would reinvent moviemaking with “Avatar.” That he was marking a milestone with this film that was the equivalent of silent films to talkies, or black and white to color.

Right. And once I heard that he was the king of the world.

Going to the movies for a grown-up is too often a series of ongoing disappointments and adjusted expectations. So I was braced for anything.

But I had learned by now to be careful in announcing Cameron’s demise just because his own overblown, self-aggrandizing pronouncements tempted one to do so. I wrote some of those epitaphs 12 years ago before “Titanic" came out, and learned my lesson then.

If that film went on to become the highest-grossing film of all time, “Avatar” may well bust through “Titanic’s” record.

Stop, we have to wait until 16th for the fun to begin in the UK.

Was it IMAX 3D or the other standard ratio digi 3D you viewed it on? Has anyone had the time to compare the two formats?
