Avatar ★★★★½

Damn this was as visually breathtaking as advertised. My only complaints: the acting wasn’t what I expected it to be & I thought some of the dialogue came across as corny at times. But those are nit-picks greatly overshadowed by how stunning the visuals are. It’s an incredible experience to just sit back for nearly 3 hours & be in awe of what can be accomplished on the silver screen. Especially with a movie that originally came out in 2009 (I know this underwent a 4K restoration for this but still). Maybe I’d have been more moved by this had I originally seen this back in ‘09 (this was my first watch). But that doesn’t take away from the triumph this movie is, especially considering the way this stands up against the test of time thus far. Excited for the sequel.
