Last year, I ended the year with the movie Twilight which was the first installment of the largely famous vampire cult movie for the last few years. This year, my movie of choice to watch on the last date of 2009 was Avatar in 2D. Considering that the movie opened in mid-December, I was hoping I will be able to see those blue creatures in 3D technology but alas, the entire population of Singapore prolly shared the same sentiment as me as well as on a weekday afternoon, even the 3D slots for the movies were snapped up even till the last time-slot at 2350 hours.
So I settled for second best in the form of 2D, bearing in mind that I will gladly queue up with the rest of the population another time if the 2D really blows me away. So here’s my take on the bigegst blockbuster movie of the year by James Cameron:
Synopsis (Thanks Cathay!):
AVATAR, a live action film with a new generation of special effects, takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery, ultimately leading a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of actual production work, AVATAR delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
The Best Movie for the Year 2009 & Beyond.
I so can’t wait to go and watch in 3D! Wish me luck!
