Movie Review: Avatar

avatarMost of my recent movie reviews have been… critical at best. Today we watched the match tooted movie “Avatar” by James Cameron. I was very curious about the “new 3D” technology (having been less than impressed by Hollywood’s earlier attempts) and really hoped for a great movie.

wreckLast year during our USA trip we also visited the wonderful town of Lone Pine and the even more wonderful Alabama Hills (if you haven’t been there and like movies – go there!

Stardust / Der Sternwanderer

We just watched “Der Sternwanderer” (Stardust, by Neil Gaiman). I absolutely love this movie – what a wonderful fairy tale with great characters, nice twists and turns. I fail to see the issues some critics had about the movie and being able to follow the story. My recommendation: Watch it, enjoy it and take it as what it is – a simple yet moving fairy tale about all the strong motives of classic fairy tales: great evil meeting bravery in the face of at first unsurmountable adversity, true love and the strength of innocence.┬á

BTW, I recommend everything from Neil Gaiman, his Sandman comics probably being one of the most powerful pieces of fantastic literature┬áI ever read┬á(yeah, literature in a comic series – can you believe that? The critics had some problems with that [initially]).
