Yup. I did it. Took Boy to see Avatar. I don't know what I watched more, the movie or my son's face in utter awe! I loved that he loved it. He was a bit teary after. Not because of the plot... Even he knew that was weak. But because it was so hyped and he was so, well - spent, afterwards. He wanted more. Like those of us that finish a great book and want more... He wanted to go back and do more.... I can so relate, little man! I took him because I knew that the others in the fam would not be as appreciative of the time it would take to watch this one. 2 hours and 40 minutes is epic in any man's eyes. It's a darned good thing that the graphics are astounding and the eye candy abounds! It is a simple movie, light on plot and very predictable. I went knowing this. I also went hoping to be amazed at the sights and I was not disappointed. It was mildly entertaining and I even got over my vow to never have to watch Sigourney Weaver stomp across another contrived role on the big screen. It was for Boy, after all. I was again rewarded with a big hug this morning and another thank you! All worth it! I'm a star!
