James has been watching Avatar with the dedication of a zealot since we picked it up last weekend.
Early in the film…
J: Mom! (very excited)
M: Yeah babe?
J: I know what a jujube is!
M: Oh Yeah?
J: Yeah! They are jungle cats, that live in the South East.
J: Yeah! They live with the black bottomed beatles.
Later when Jake introduces himself to the Na’vi…
J: What is a jarhead clam?
When Jake tames and flies the Toruk for the first time….
J: Is that big bird called a to-may-toe?
During the cataclysmic fight scene at the end…
J: Mom, Jake Sully (he’s never just Jake) is going to wind (not a typo). Jake Sully is going to kick that guy’s ass.
M: (pausing from blogging for a second) What did you just say?
J: I could punch that bad guy so hard, he’d fall down an hurt themselves. Yeah- I could! What does booyah mean?
I’ve seen the movie so many times, that I’m starting to look for all the little details to stay occupied. Did you know that Jake Sully’s avatar has five fingers, the Na’vi only three? Booyah!
