    I just saw "Taken" last night. Actually liked it. I thought it would be lame, but since it was free on HBO I put in 2 hrs and enjoyed it. Good story, even though some parts seems too perfect.

    Was that actually as good as they pushed it to be? Avatar isn't my kind of thing, but it looks so colorful so I want to see it.

    It was an incredible movie. It had all the elements you look for in a blockbuster, love interest, drama, action. Everything you want in a movie it delivers with the most beautiful imagery in the history of cinema.

    The only way I can describe the CGI is if you were an alien from another universe and you saw this movie, I would assume it was huge blue aliens acting. I never once even realized it was CGI.

    I disagree, from a view of intention and technology it is definitely the most impressive movie from the decade.

    Explain "...a view of intention..." I am not sure what you are saying there. From a technology perspective, I think it only stands out because of the meshing of live actors and the significant amount of CGI animation...but other than that and it being in 3D, it was really good.

    Sorry I'm at work and have to type quickly.

    By view of intention I meant what James Cameron set out to do. A fully 3D film which, i think, is the first ever made?

    Technology wise I think it is a masterpiece.
