Since I started this thread, let me jump on the end - this film is a masterful creation for the ages. Eye candy? Yes. A compelling story, as sci-fi goes? Absolutely. Mainstream entertainment? Possibly. My theater in blue-collar Waterbury, CT was filled with kids, families, baby boomers and even a few crying babies (perhaps it is hard to get a sitter this time of year) - I would call that mainstream.

Even without the last act, this movie stands as a monumental achievement. Heck, even without the 3D I think this would be a great ride. But the subtle use of 3D is not what I was expecting (although having read the 3D issue of the Creative COW magazine, it is what I thought I could expect). Gone are the days when 3D was used as a gimmick to get people to the theater. 3D is now a filmmaking tool just as CGI and steadycams are. Use it to enhance the story, but only as needed.

Bravo Jim Cameron.
