Avatar in 3-D


Dir. James Cameron. 2009, 162 mins. Dolby Digital 3-D. With Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver. In this enthralling, provocative story that questions and embraces the place of technology in the natural world, James Cameron pushes the limits of filmmaking to create an awesome, immersive 3-D experience. A paraplegic marine is dispatched to the moon Pandora and sent in avatar form on a unique mission. Avatar is the all-time box office champion (although adjusted for inflation, Gone With the Wind is still number one).
