Despite what most people might think, the movie Avatar is not about marines coming to an alien world to mind for a mineral and the subjection of the indigenous population. You may remove your head from the wall now . The movie is actually about Pandora itself. Its about taking the audience on a three hour tour of an alien planet rich with flora and fauna that don't exist here on earth. It's about exploring rich landscapes, with alien geography, and alternate forms of biological interactions. As evidence I present the six elements of drama, Plot, Characters, Theme, Dialogue, Spectacle and Music. Plot, Characters, and Theme are all at the bottom. They are definitely paper thin and truly unremarkable. Dialogue and Music take slightly higher positions, but it is Spectacle that takes the cake. And the Ice Cream. And all the presents. As further evidence, towards the end, when we have finished seeing one area of Pandora, the movie takes us on a sample of several other locals. Besides, look where all the money and research went to, the state of the art motion capture and 3D cameras. So to everyone who bashes the movie for being shallow and unoriginal, you are missing the point. It's like criticizing the thanksgiving day parade because its just a rehash of last years.
