1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    Yes! I stayed home from our church's almost 3-hour Easter vigil mass that night (but my husband went), so I felt obligated to watch. But I love it!

    There. These are movies i return too and have seen more than twice. And by the way, I actually liked Avatar, West side story and Titanic. Saw in an other thread that they seem to be on the list of movies disliked the most. maybe i'm contrary.

    To me, the only way to see Avatar is in an Imax theatre in 3D with surround sound and a screen that is about six stories high


    Unfortunately they recently closed the one downtown here in Winnipeg (by the way I did like Avatar too - I saw it twice)

    I'm not sure. I remember the 3D effects when they where flying the dragon and so on. They did that way too long, just to play with the 3D toys. It was if the makers had told the audience, OK we take a break here so we can play with our new technical toy, the movie will start soon again. They were impressive effects but they slowed the story down. But is always the same when discover new effects. they use them way too much and the story suffers. Sometimes they even make movies without storys and just cram in a lot of effects. Plain borinng. Avatar had a story, even if it breaks now and then.

    Jaws (the greatest film ever made in my opinion)
    The Lord of the Rings Series
    Now the Hobbit Series
    King Kong by Peter Jackson
    Any Stephen King adaptation
    Almost anything with Clint involved (exclude such wastes of time as the Bridges of Madison County)
    Star Wars (yes, even the prequels)
    Star Trek (All of them)
    Pretty much action and effects for me. It must also be fiction. If I want some reality, I'll go to work.
