Avatar Review

I hope each of y'all had a blessed and wonderful Christmas! I'll do a post with Christmas Eve pictures and a gift recap later, but I wanted to recommend a movie I saw on December 23 with my Daddy.

We went to see Avatar and it was absolutely amazing! I was so skeptical going to it, didn't really want to see it, just wanted to spend time with Daddy, but it was AMAZING! the story line, the acting, the special effects, the score - the whole movie was very well done and I'll be very surprised if it does not win Best Special Effects and Best Direction at the Academy Awards and I feel it will be a high contender for Best Picture.

Another fun tidbit, my Daddy grew up down the street in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania from Joe Letteri who was the visual effects supervisor for the movie & the man who won Academy Awards for creating Gollum in Lord of the Rings. They're in their high school hall of fame together - how cool! Anyways, besides the fact that we have a personal connection to the special effects supervisor, we really enjoyed the film and didn't know his involvement until we watched the credits at the end of the film.

If you're looking for a fun movie to see and a great way to spend the afternoon or evening, please go see this film and then let me know what y'all think!
