I saw Avatar in 3-D a few weeks ago.  My boyfriend dragged me to it.  I had seen commercials that didn’t look appealing , and I’m not a big fan of sci-fi.  Needless to say, I had little to no hope that I would actually enjoy any of it.

I was pleasantly surprised.  I have to admit, the movie is epic.  Within the first few minutes of the film, I was drawn into the beauty of Pandora.  I fell in love with likeable characters and hated the villains.  And I couldn’t help but pull out infinite spiritual connotations/undertones.

During one of my favorite parts, Jake (one of the main characters) prays to Eywa (his god), “You chose me to do something, so I will fight.  But I need your help.”

I know I’ve prayed a similar prayer. Have you?
