    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.

    The first 30 minutes of this movie is in a league of its own. R. Lee Ermey was amazing.

    It certainly looked and sounded authentic, but from what I understand he was an actual DI in the USMC.

    Yes he was,back in the Vietnam era..I have a friend who went through Parris Island in the early eighties,and I asked him if it was as rough as it shows.He paled and said "Worse",this is a guy who kids constantly about everything,happy go lucky,but he didn't find anything humorous about the Island..
