Early Word

Avatar Not a Disaster

What’s the early word on Avatar, James Cameron’s first feature film since Titanic? The Guardian has seen the movie and while it is obligated to not review the film before Monday, it goes ahead and says “Avatar was really much, much better than expected, that it looked amazing and that the story was gripping—if cheesy in many places.” The film’s 3-D effects worked, “though, a certain amount of suspension of disbelief is needed when watching Avatar” due to its out-there plot. The other journalists in attendance, The Guardian writes, agreed that it was good. Avatar hits theaters next Friday.
