Avatar early reviews are up!!


The first reviews are trickling in and both the Hollywood Reporter and Variety are praising the movie. HR comments "movie magic is back" and thinks repeat business is high http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/film-reviews/avatar-film-review-1004052868.story while Variety says James Cameron has delivered a film with "universal appeal" http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117941773.html?categoryid=31&cs=1. We'll have to wait and see but it sounds like Cameron has delivered.
An update-Another 4 star review-this time from Roger Ebert who compares viewing it to seeing Star Wars for the first time http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20091211/REVIEWS/912119998 (and Ebert may not be far off as Cameron himself has revealed plans for two sequels. The Star Wars of 2010s?)
