Not a spoiler, just a heads up (no pun intended, read on).
At very close to 3 hours, Avatar’s a really long film with a full bladder.
Pee before you leave your home. Like the Nike ad says, “Just Do It”!
You won’t find the usual “window of opportunity” slow spot in the story that leads you to believe you can make a rapid run to the restroom.
Don’t buy a (large or otherwise) soda when you get there.
Try to pee one more time again just before you sit down.
You’ve been warned!!!
My Humble Prediction:
In less than 5 years you’ll be hard pressed to find a major release (I can’t bring myself to call them “movies” anymore, and “videos” seems harsh) at a theater that isn’t released in 3-D.
Assuming I’m not blowing dust farts in five years, you’re welcome to rub my nose in it if I’m wrong, but I wouldn’t bet all you have on it.
Know that Warners, Fox, Universal, Paramount et all sure won’t.
And by the way, go ahead and spring the extra $3.00 for the 3-D version, it’s the best investment you can make.
Plus, you can do a great Drew Carey impersonation next Halloween.

Feel free to ignore any ads that are shown below, I don’t get to choose them and (sadly) I don’t make a penny off any of them, so in the holy name of capitalism I rebuke and don’t endorse or support any of them, unless of course they’re made of funny stuff…..
