Perhaps I would have had a different opinion if I did in fact see it in the theatre where I could experience it as it was meant to be, or even if I had of seen it on a good copy on DVD.
My main thing was the story itself. Just didn't really find it all that interesting. I'm sure the visuals were amazing in the theatre (3-D and all...). From what I've seen in the commercials on my HD t.v., they look darn good. But for me, I'd rather cheesy graphics with a great story/plot, instead of superb graphics with a lame story/plot.
[Perfect example: Star Wars I, II, III, as well as the re-release (edited) of the originals....should never have been made, IMHO (or at least had a better story, and lay off the overdone, high tech, out-of-this-world computer visuals and graphics). Sometimes a little simplier is a lot better.]
Never know, I may end up watching Avatar again some day, on a 3-D t.v. or something...with a clear picture!
As far as Beethoven, I'd be just fine with listening to him however and/or wherever....I would prefer tho, opposed to "Beethoven's 9th Symphony", "Romance for Violin and Orchestra no.1 in G Op. 40", or " Violin Concerto in D Op. 61, part 3: Rondo (Allergo)" or "Symphony no. 6 in F Op. 68 'Pastoral', Part 5: Allegretto: Shepherd's Song - Happy And Thankful Feelings After The Storm".
