Posing at the bottom of our staircase, I smile at the camera in late June of 2010 as Harrison decides that the first step of the stairs is a good place for beauty sleep. Here I was four and Harrison was five years old, and the red stuff on our faces was some ribs that we had just eaten. Well, more like smeared on our faces.

“Avatar: The Way of Water” was released on Dec. 16 2022. Directed by James Cameron, the “Avatar” sequel features an updated cast. The production and animation was fantastic, however the three and a half hour length made it a bit difficult to watch fully through in the movie theatre. Considering its unoriginal plot, unnecessary length, and fantastic production, I’d rate this film a 6 out of 10.
