This has to be one of the best movies I have seen all year. Considering the year is almost over and all the movies shown, that's saying a lot. After putting on the stylish 3D glasses I was pulled into the futuristic world in front of me. At first the 3D was a little weird but after a while it made the movie real, like I was a spectator watching everything from a distance. For those of you who don't know what the movie is about, here is the basic plot line...The story follows a future battle between Earth and alien moon Pandora. The Army is after rich minerals, mainly located underneath the Natives home tree. Jake Sully, played by the amazingly attractive Sam Worthington, who is confined to a wheelchair, is chosen to be part of the Avatar program,where his mind will control a healthy body on a remote world and sent to Pandora, a rain forest with a mix of beautiful and terrifying creatures known as the Na'vi. After being accepted into their world, Jake finds himself needing to decide where his allegiances lie, in a battle which will decide the fate of two planets...I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It had great characters and character development, a fantastic storyline, amazing scenery and even the Avatar's grew on me, they became more and more attractive as the movie went on. Everything about this movie was awesome, I left the theater in awe, I highly recommend it to anyone. Well done James Cameron, well done.

Please Put A Penny In The Old Man's Hat...The month of December has flown by and already the Holiday Season is upon us, with only 3 days till Christmas. I've got the majority of my Christmas shopping done. Need to finish up a few extra stocking stuffers today after work, for my brothers and myself. Also the gift making hasn't gone so well, I've had very little time to find patterns and fabric and actually sit down at the sewing machine. But I will give out the gifts probably in the New Year, which will still count as Christmas present to me. We have yet to put up our Christmas tree, but I am opting that it be set up today! And if my brother doesn't do it, I shall do it myself. So I will be wrapping presents, sipping hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music, getting ready for the last few days till Christmas.
At 8:00 a.m. on December 20, 2009 Brittany Murphy had apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Firefighters attempted to resuscitate Murphy on the scene, and she was subsequently transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Ca, where she was pronounced dead on arrival at 10:04 a.m. after going into cardiac arrest. She was one of my favourite actresses and I enjoyed her movies such as Just Married and Uptown Girls. Its always so sad to see a talented and beautiful actress pass away. She will be missed.
