I went kicking and screaming to Avatar this past weekend. Not only have I been 3-D shy ever since barfing on Epcot's Star Wars ride but, I've also been scarred by Babe and his King Kong and District Nine types films in the past. I wasn't about to fall for his ole Metacritic bait again without a good fight...

But, being the good wife that I am, I caved, 3-D glasses and all and, to my non sci-fi lovin surprise it was fabulous. However, we shall keep that enthusiasm under wraps for now...

Cuz, someone needs a date to The Young Victoria and the guilt card will need to be played...

Kindness of Babe for drawing a little more on his memory of my good sportsmanship and a little less on my sneaky Varina buying ways while he's away this week...XXOO


  1. Can't say I was wild about Avatar, but I took my granddaughter to The Young Victoria, and we both loved it.

  2. I don't know about Avatar (my prejudices going in are similar to what yours were) but The Young Victoria is fab and I'm considering going to see it a second time. Also have a huge crush on Rupert Friend after seeing it, despite the fact that he probably weighs a good 20 pounds less than I do.

  3. I heard Avatar is good, but I would much prefer to see Victoria. Our visits to the cinema are few and far between, though.

  4. DH and I saw '"It's Complicated" yesterday and we loved it!
    I know I won't be able to drag him to Victoria - I'll see that with a girlfriend. I might see Avatar with him...we'll see...

  5. Glad to hear that you feel better and that you enjoyed the movie.
