I Have No Interest in Seeing Avatar

Monday I’m taking the day off. You see, my job requires me to travel and work on the weekends some times and then I get a floating day to take to replace those lost weekend hours of family bliss.

So, my darling wife suggested that on my day off I go see Avatar as a treat. The last movie I saw in a theater was Iron Man so now you know two things about me, I don’t get out much and I like sci-fi movies. But what dad blogger doesn’t.

It was so funny that my wife thought of Avatar because of all the buzz, but from what I’ve seen and what people tell me about the movie I have no interest in seeing the CGI-fest myself.

I don’t know if it’s the Dances With Wolves plot, aliens that look like blue, feline versions of Jar Jar Binks, or the supposedly eye-soreness inducing visual effects that turn me off most. I should want to see it. I just don’t.

Instead I think I’ll go see Daybreakers. Anyone else seen that yet? Is it worth my coveted day off? What about Book of Eli?
