    I just saw The Princess and the Frog.  The New Orleans setting wasn't quite what I was expecting, but I enjoyed the movie with my three daughters.  My four year old loved it and my seven year old liked it.

    I really want to see Avatar in 3d, Brothers, Up in the Air, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Invictus, Holmes, Everybody's Fine...and I think a few more.  I'm going to need to find some serious baby sitters to get in all these movies:)

    If I can only see one movie, I think I'll go with Avatar.  Anyone seen it yet?

      I'm looking forward to seeing Avatar, we're going on Christmas night. as far as I understand, it's the first movie James Cameron has produced since Titanic?  Same music composer also who wrote for Titanic, sounds like a winning team. I've heard great reviews.

      I myself just saw Fantastic Mr. Fox, which was incredible.  The past year has been exceptional for animation fans - Up and Coraline were beautiful and Princess and the Frog looks fairly promising (though I'm not much of a fan of modern Disney, it looks to be, at the very least, excellent visually).

      I'm planning on seeing Avatar this upcoming weekend, and preparing myself for the worst.  As someone said before, expectation leads to disappointment (and some are calling this the most elaborate sci fi film since Star Wars).

      Just saw it, and it is fantastic.  Best 3D effects I've ever seen.

    Avatar's the only one that REALLY interests me, and it's from less of a "excited to see it" standpoint than a scientific experiment standpoint

    it INTRIGUES me but I wouldn't say I think I'm going to like it

    A friend of mine came back from watching Avatar in 3D yesterday raving about it, he said it's amazing, unfortunately I couldn't make it along.

    He now says that he wants to go live on a planet full of blue alien people, and got genuinely quite upset when I told him that it wasn't going to happen, guess I should have just left him to dream. big_smile

    I too am looking forward to seeing Avatar but I don't want to get my expectations up to high because that always leads to disappointment.  Also want to watch Have you heard about the Morgans.  Hope there are more funny parts than just what is in the  trailer.
