Anyone seen it yet?
I just got back from a showing and thought it was incredible. I was fairly speechless coming out of the theatre. I was totally sucked into what was going on in the movie. I saw it in 3d/IMAX and would HIGHLY suggest doing the same if you are going to see it. In fact i can't imagine seeing it not in the 3D/IMAX form.

I watched it opening night at Southwind 12 in Lawrence last night. Wasn't an IMAX but the 3D was still good. Really was visually stunning. I can only imagine how much better it would be in an IMAX theater. My kids got big time charge out of it. It's definitely a film worth seeing. Pretty amazing eye candy.

Does it have a good story line, or is it all special effects?

the story line was better than i thought it would be. It wasnt great but it was pretty good. The special effects are the strongest part of the movie, because they totally get you lost in this new world.

I took my 10 YO to see it last night. My first ever 3D movie. Pretty incredible stuff. Not so much a good story, nothing too original.

There were lots of liberal allegories going on. Did Al Gore produce this movie?

I was actually a little disturbed by the guy joining the "terrorists" and the when the "terrorists" are attacking hearing that Middle Eastern high pitched LALALALALAALAL. I'm sure there's a name for it just not sure what it was. You could easily substitute oil for whatever mineral that was and interject the big bad US is killing off Muslims to get to their oil. Only to have the Islamists band together to kill the great Satan.

That was a small part of the whole movie, but I didn't care for it, and I thought it was unnecessary. Other than that, really cool movie.

I love James Cameron: tired tropes about the awfulness of those who consume irresponsibly and the evil of consumer-driven technological advancement, even as he spends half-a-billion on the most visually advanced film in history.

Good chit there, boys and girls.

PG 13
I took my 10 year old. There's a couple of bad words. Segourny Weaver smokes (OMG) and there's a mating scene with no alien nudity.

We invited my daughter's friend. Her parents said no because of the pg 13. I honestly don't understand how it got that rating.
Maybe the big battle scene at the end but there's no green blood or anything.
