Thank you for the kind comments all.

I'm probably going to get hatemail from the first poor individual with dialup or slow DSL who attempts to load all those screencaps.

Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review


Saw this movie last night with the family on BluRay and although I thought the video quality was fantastic and the animation was top notch (I found myself forgetting that it was animated) the storyline got tiresome halfway through and at times kind of stupid. Personally I dont think that this movie deserved all the hype it got. Great review but Wow, that first page of this tread takes a long time to load

Watched Avatar on Sunday with a couple friends. Everyone was thrilled with the movie. I would have liked to have a 7.1 sound track and maybe a wide screen picture but what was there was very entertaining.

I'm suspicious of this 2d port. Avatar was the greatest 3d experience ever. I just don't know about 2ding it.

Well, I have DSL here, and I thought the screen shots were excessive. My browser did not behave well, constantly jumping back and forth as I tried to just find the next message in this thread. I appreciate that you meant well, but for me, screen shots don't tell me what I want to find out. And, if a picture is worth a thousand words, you gave us Wikipedia.
