We've just spent a magical time watching Avatar in 3D at the cinema.

It is an amazing achievement in technology.

Dozens of young kids under 10 were there also, so I was a bit apprehensive about potential noise, chattering, seat kicking and background noise.

I needn't have worried.

The special effects were so good - none of the kids made a single noise - they were silent and speechless with what they were seeing on screen.

It is an amazing film for special effects - some of the audience ducked and leaned to one side when things came off the screen "into" the crowd - and not just the kids.

A thoroughly good time was had by all - great entertainment all round - and a very special experience in 3D.

If you get the chance - don't miss it in 3D.

I'd be interested in how you think they compare in terms of 3D technology answersonapostcard.

I am absolutely amazed at what James Cameron has achieved with Avatar.

This is a landmark film for me in terms of technology - it is simply astounding.

I know this film had a colossal budget - and I'm wondering what the next film will be to use this technology and where they can take it in terms of special effects.

I saw this last week - 3D is fantastic - a must see film, just for the experience if nothing else

It certainly is an unforgettable experience.

I put the 3D glasses on and was totally immersed in the special effects until the credits rolled.

I read that the film has already been criticised for not having a gay "hero" or any overweight Avatars who are apparently "thin role models perpetuating the Hollywood stereotype" - in their opinion. ROFL - I need to lose some weight but still enjoyed the film.

Can't these people just go to the cinema to be entertained? Smile

I'll let you know, saw Sherlock Holmes today, having a bit of a cinema fest at the mo, good film too. At this rate I'm going to have to get a season ticket if they carry on producing good stuff like this, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland looking good on a trailer too.

Hi answersonapostcard - my wife has just informed me that she wants to book to see Avatar in 3D again - as soon as possible.

She enjoyed it that much and in 20 years we have never seen the same film twice in the same week in the same cinema before.

Now where is the blue make up........................................? Smile

We had to book - zero chance otherwise - same "sold out" signs here too.

Should you put the yellow contact lenses in before the blue make up is applied? Smile

I saw Avatar in 3D last week and although I thought it was a good 162 mins of entertainment I wasn't blown away by either the 3D or the storyline.

The 3D felt a bit gimmicky and to be honest the supporting 3D ads were more impressive. There's an article on BBC's Click magazine about 3D films that talks about where a film has to be made for both 2D and 3D viewing compromises have to be made and I think this could have happened here.

The story felt like an update on the marauding greedy white men plundering the American West from the Native Americans and to be honest despite being 3D didn't have a lot of depth or subtlety.

I found the most impressive thing was the way the whole world of Pandora had been carefully created to create a convincing alien ecosystem.

Still an enjoyable film but I'm not sure I'd pay the extra for the 3D version again.

LOL - We thought it was "Dances with Avatars" as well - great entertainment all the same - we thoroughly enjoyed it.
