Watching James Cameron’s 3-D colossus “Avatar” at home causes three major questions to rush to mind.
- Does the film still captivate in one less dimension?
- Are those clunky lectures still obnoxious on a second viewing?
- Did James Cameron get robbed of a Best Director Oscar?
Yes (especially on Blu-ray). Yes. And … most definitely.
“Avatar” doesn’t need silly glasses to keep us engaged. It’s a breeze to enjoy the film on a purely cinematic level – the tightly conceived storyline and whiz-bang action accented by colors we’ve never seen on screen before.
