I liked the film quite a big, back when it was made fifteen years ago, was called Dances with Wolves, and didn’t have the weird left-wing Vietnam fantasy ending.
David Brooks calls the film racist.Â The only question is if the film is racist against whites, racist against non-whites, or simply misanthropic against everyone in general. (Or biased against alien species?). Either way, the plot is a joke.
But then again, the plot of most games by iD Software have been a joke, too.
Avatar is a 2.5 hour tech demo. It is an amazing demonstration of the way that movies, television (especially sports), and video games will look in the future.
