It is 26th December 09 here in Malaysia, the day after Christmas, also known as Boxing Day. Typically, this is the day when people go to the stores to get the proper size for clothes they received as Christmas gifts -- if it didn't fit.
My family however, went to Signature GSC at the Gardens to watch James Cameron's Avatar! Better still, we watched it in 3D! Before entering the theater, we were given those square 3D glasses. It was cool. Even the advertisements about the upcoming movies were in 3D. It was awesome!
With the 3D glasses, everything seemed to come at you. When they were walking through the jungle, I felt like touching the leaves of the ferns as they 'passed by'. Some scenes make you recoil because it feels like the gun is really pointed at you and that the people are actually shooting at you. It was definitely a rush.
The movie was very good. Very deep. There is no, absolutely no, clear-cut good guy/bad guy. Everyone is caught up in trying to uphold their respective principles -- which by the way, change as time progresses due to multiple factors. The almost-3-hour movie went by so quickly. The movie itself was very pact and dense. But don't get excited. It is not so much of an action movie. It has a lot of conversations -- which I enjoy.
I was a bit sad when the movie ended. It was so good.
Rating; A solid 10/10. 5 stars out of 5 stars. The seamless special effects, breathtaking animation, the complex plot, character development and spectacular acting, all make for a simply stunning movie. Love it.
Aside from watching Avatar, my family found 16 baby koi in our pond! We're very excited. About 2-4 months ago, we found some fish fry but then they dissapeared. Now, apparently, they're bigger and there's 16 of them. We're very excited. Hehe.
By the way, this marks my 200th post! Woohoo! Blogger milestone, baby!
That's all for now. Au revoir.
Watch Avatar. You won't regret it. And, if you can, go for 3D. An experience not to be missed.
