Revenge of the Blue Space Indians Against the Wicked White People – 3D!

Just got back from watching “Revenge of the Blue Space Indians Against the Wicked White People – 3D.” You’ve probably heard it called “Avatar 3D.”

Entertaining action and graphics; however, I’m not into the whole “human = unenlightened, nature-raping brute” craze. If you are, then you’d probably love the story line. And, there’s this added bonus: apparently, being a Marine just isn’t honorable anymore.

Another delightful feature is that most of the human characters could have used an Ivory-soap sandwich. You know, I always appreciate gratuitous foul language. If there is one thing that ruins a good ol’ picture show, it’s the absence of a healthy dose of colorful cuss words and inappropriate invocations for a deity to smite someone or something with eternal condemnation.

If you decide to watch “Avatar,” be sure to see it in 3D so you, too, can enjoy the optical benefits of trying to watch a movie through excessive auto glass tint. At least, that’s what it was like for me. Maybe it had something to do with my contact lenses and the polarization of the glasses; I’m not sure. But, 3D hardly seems worth the extra $2 on the ticket price. It was like looking through a dark View Master; and, frankly, the 3D in a View Master is a lot better.

All that being said, I did enjoy the movie in a general sense, but not enough to try to get a group of friends together to go see it. Rather, I’m looking forward to M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming take on Nickelodeon’s “Avatar: the Last Air Bender.” Hopefully, little Aang the Air Bender won’t be blowing hot air.
