Exclamation Am I the only one having trouble considering to wacth this movie in 2D?

I'm going to be honest that I have lots of trouble even considering watching Avatar in 2D after experiencing it in 3D. Maybe I am 3D spoiled but I feel there is no way to recapture the magic of being transported there in a 2D format. Am I the only one that feels this way?

i dont know, but the 2D version has more vibrant colors. I saw it my first time in 2D and it affected me as much as the 3D.

I thought it might be a problem, but a few minutes of the blu-ray took that idea away. The moving is absolutely gorgeous in HD 2D. Looks far better than even an IMAX screen can manage.

I was worried watching Avatar at home wouldn't be the same as it was at the theater, but as soon as Jake began running from the Thanator, I knew I was wrong. The experience was the same if not better.

It's not bad compared to 3D, however, make sure it is the bluray. The DVD isn't as good. Also, make sure your sound system is good!!!!

I had the same fear. So I actually put off watching it for a couple of days. Sadly I have no working blu-ray player at home at the moment... and so I was doubley concerned. However, even the DVD (on a 23" LCD Monitor with a decent sound system) moved me, albeit somewhat less strongly.

Go blu-ray (with good sound!), if you can... if you can't, then the film is still a wonderful experience in my opinion.

I admit, I much preferred the 3D. Even in 2D, I still find it amazing though.

I've never even seen the film in 3D, unfortunately (on account of being born legally blind in one eye... 3D glasses don't really play out very well for me). However, as a video quality freak, I can safely say watching it on Blu-Ray is infinitely better than watching it in the cinema, for me.

I've watched the BD 3x and it feels just as amazing as in theaters. The thing that gets me though--why I almost like it better at home on 2D--is that I get to watch it on my terms. No loudmouths in the theater, you don't have to miss anything for a bathroom break, etc. I turn on my old speaker system (not great, but it sounds good enough for my little bitty room) and turn off the lights & the film looks just great.

I watched the DVD with my parents and sister, on their old 4:3 crappy SD TV. The worst part of their TV is that the screen size is shrinking. It's hard to explain, but if you imagine the the picture should fill up the WHOLE screen, their TV picture has shrunk to about 1.5" from the left and right sides of the screen. Anyway, even watching the movie on that old TV was fine. I actually only watched half of it with them--I left during the middle because I got a phone call.

I could probably watch this on an old half-broken VHS and it would still affect me! Just go for it!

Aye the first time I saw it it was 2D and I loved it. Fair enough, I travelled all the way up the road the following weekend to see it in 3D right enough but in the end it was still the 2D film that I initially fell in love with. You'll forget about it once you start watching it, or I hope so anyway!

I'm going to agree with what others have said. Personally I find the home experience a million times better than in the cinema due to the lack of distractions. It's even more immersive. I haven't watched the Blu-ray yet, i'm still waiting a) for the right opportunity so I can be alone in the house and b) because I still have to set up my surround sound system but the other 2D version I watched effected me even moreso than it did in 3D.
