FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Avatar The Movie

If you are not planning on seeing Avatar, change your mind. I saw the 3-D version and it was one of the most visually spectacular movies I have ever seen. The plot was pretty much standard cowboys and Indians. It would still be fun to see with out the amazing visuals but frankly the special effects and cinematography are the true stars of the movie.

The 3-D wasn’t over done. I was a bit apprehensive thinking they would have a lot of cutesy effects causing the audience to drop and duck. The 3-D effects fit well with the theme. I was surprised that there was a $3.00 surcharge for seeing a 3-D movie. That translated into $36.00 of tickets for our multigenerational 3 threesome. Both my grandson and I got age related discounts and it was still $36 for three tickets. If that is going to be the norm for 3-D movies then they are never going to gain the popularity that they hope to get. The 3-D effects were nice but if I had known prior to reaching the ticket window I would not have paid the difference.

All in all, it was an entertaining movie with the oohs and ahhs being for the effects rather than the story. I would suggest that you might even enjoy it even if you don’t care for scifi.
