Avatar - IMAX 3-D

Laurie drove us all down to West Palm Beach to the Muvico Parisian to see Avatar in 3-D at the IMAX theater. It was quite an experience.

I really enjoyed the movie very much - I thought that it was better than Star Wars. The fantastical plot was totally understandable and the science was easy to follow. The Na'vis were likable and interesting - very flexible and mobile for nine feet tall! The characters were well developed and the message of the film was positive. It was a not too subtle message about how corporations can lose their humanity in the quest for the almighty dollar. Dylan liked it, but not as much as I did. Dick actually liked the movie - the last time that happened was 101 Dalmatians! Jana found it to be immmersive and engaging, and she liked it because the good guys won.

Afterwards did a little shopping at the Palm Beach Gardens Mall, and then we wanted to have dinner at P.F. Chang's, but there would have been a 45 minute wait, so we went next door to Brio's, an excellent Italian restaurant.
