Saw Avatar last night. I must say I was routing for "District 9" to get the Oscar, but after seeing Avatar, there's no doubt the movie will win for best special effects/CG/whatever the category is called now. So much for the creative little shop in Vancouver.

I believe everyone and their brother worked on Avatar. I'm surprised have this forum wasn't working on it as well. Weta, ILM, kids still in college....

What a massive undertaking. I've been trying to get the sidewalks to light up with every step I take all day with no luck. Guess that only works for MJ and on Pandora.

Yup - no uncanny valley (http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley) feelings while watching it. Great blend of CG and live action. Very long though.
