As for what I thought of Avatar...
...I can't remember the last movie that left me feeling so many shades of conflicted.
I'm going to see it again tomorrow night with friend and fellow blogger Steven Glaspie. Between now and then I'm thinking enough of it will "sink in" and maybe I can absorb the story as much as I've already beheld the astonishing visual effects (easily the best I have ever seen in a film). I'll attempt a real review afterward.
But for now: yeah, it's good. It's very good. But not without some issues.
