I Don’t Know How You Charmed Your Way Into My Heart

[Pandora – Madina Lake]

Yes okay maybe I chose that one specifically.

I watched Avatar today, with Angie. In 3D. It. Was. Fucking. Awesome.

I can’t even begin to describe the sheer cinematographic beauty. The flora and fauna of Pandora left another friend saying, “THE TREES ON EARTH ARE SO BORING!”

The creatures were astoundingly exotic, and the Na’vi (the natives of Pandora) are stunning creatures themselves, with amazing ability to interface with the world around them.

I read up on some scientific background of the movie. Call me a geek, but the level of scientific accuracy that James Cameron went into made me believe even more (or rather, want to believe) that Pandora is real, and we could go there.

Copernicus Grades Cameron On The Science of AVATAR!!

This guy mostly went through some flaws of the movie, as well as grading the goods. After reading it, I saw the standpoint from scientific intellectuals, but to the untrained and impressionable eye like mine, the slight flaws didn’t bother me at all.

Pandorapedia

This was mostly just a dossier on all the creatures and new creations of Pandora. I haven’t read it all yet but it was pretty interesting.

An Activist Survival Guide

I haven’t finished reading this either, but it looked interesting from the few lines I scanned, plus it has a crash course on the language of Na’vi.

I highly recommend you watch the movie, in 3D. The experience is not something you should pass up.
