Avatar

We missed the 1st 10 minutes, no thanks to the December traffic. But the next 152 minutes of Avatar is the most jaw-dropping, astoundingly awesome cinematic experience I have had in years.

James Cameron transports us to the Pandora world he created for over a decade and you see every inch of it on screen. It is breathtaking. For 18 minutes shy of 3 hours, it feels like you really ARE in Pandora.

Forget about the Pocahontas-like plot. Go see this for the visual feast, the CGI, and the 40-minute battle sequence.

And watch this on an IMAX screen (SM MoA and SM North EDSA) which will continue screenings even during the MMFF. Believe me, the 400 pesos you pay is worth every centavo.

Go watch!

I don't know why I'm not so inclined to watch this movie. I may still see this though after the holidays.

I am very particular about watching movies. I want to be there early so I could see the previews.

How much is movies there? It's 10 to 10.50 here. We watch during matinee showing, 7.50.

Fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving gifts are all the buzzwords in a Christmas setting. Make your Christmas a one to cherish for years!

I'm in a bind right now. There's quite a number of movies I want to see such as Invictus, Sherlock Holmes (with Robert Downey, Jr.) and this movie.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year, Pards! Take care.
