I first heard about "Avatar" about two years ago - it took that long (and more) to make. It's the new "breakthrough 3D" film from James Cameron, maker of Titanic and Terminator 2. I went to see it this afternoon and, for me, it really lived up to the hype. The plot may be fairly formulaic, but the spectacle is awesome. After a while you simply forget that you are watching mostly computer generated images and all in 3D. You just get immersed in the story and the strange alien world. Well worth a visit to your multiplex, but do make sure it's the 3D version!
