Avatar - Pocahontas in Space

My seventeen year old daughter said it best: "Pocahontas in space." The plot, the characters, the themes, the nature worship, the technical effects--pretty much all of it--Pocahontas in space. Like Pocahontas, it was pleasant enough to watch and, like Pocahontas, it probably won't do any permanent damage to anyone who is resistant to its ideological freight, but with all of this animistic antihuman propaganda hitting your kids from all sides, they probably don't exactly need this one.

Thanks for the tip. West thinks for himself, and his ideas are interesting.
