Watch Avatar only in Theatres
I don’t want to write a review on the “Avatar – 3D”. I don’t think the movie deserves to be reviewed or critiqued. It’s an experience that ought to be cherished. It a cut above all special effects movies released so far. In-fact, calling it a Movie doesn’t do any justice to James Cameroon’s efforts.
I’ll jot down my experience of watching the Avatar. When there were articles on newspapers and internet sites that theaters have opted to enhance their infrastructure to screen Avatar in 3D, I imagined some new technology has been adopted. But in-fact it’s just wearing the 3D glasses for the audience. I expected to watch 3D movies with no special glasses, and yet experience 3D.
Theaters with no proper 3D surround digital sound infrastructure would fall back in offering the real Avatar experience. Avatar 3D is not just the visual 3D but it also involves the acoustics in 3D.
With the special 3D view glass and the 3D digital surround system in place, the movie is a treat to watch and experience. The creators have put in a lot of efforts for the visual effects. They have paid attention to minute details and nothing is taken for granted when it comes to rendering the details. You can’t even afford to blink your eyes. You will have to stare into the details to enjoy it.
I would say, watch the movie at-least twice. Once just to get familiar with the story and once to experience the visual detailing of the 3D movie. But be sure to watch it in [B I G] screen. The bigger the screen, the better the viewing experience (IMAX…? anyone?).
Well, I have watched it once and definitely will plan to watch it in IMAX, even though it might call for a 600 KM travel.
