2 Reviews for “Avatar”

  1. I had the privilege of seeing “Avatar.” This is a film of epic proportions and although I had some problems with it cinematically, from a technological standpoint, I recommend that everyone should see it. However, do not go and see it if you are expecting a live action film or good acting. It is a combination of live action and animation and it should be viewed as such. Just expect the equivalent of a technologically advanced, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” I was disappointed because I was expecting a fully integrated live action film.
    However, there is one thing about the movie that really upsets me. It is blatantly anti-military and less blatantly Anti-American. Without giving away too much of the plot, the bad guys in the movie are the United States Marines. Apparently, in the future, the world has become one big country that seems to be controlled by the United States. The United States Marines are sent to the planet of Pandora to destroy the opposition to the New World Order’s acquisition of its substitute for oil which just happens to be located on Pandora.
    There are scientists assigned by the New World Order to Pandora to negotiate a peaceful solution, but they are overruled by the military and the business interests at every turn. Eventually, the military solution is the final solution. The military then attacks with pure hatred and determination the locals on the planet. They do not care for the sanctity of the alien life, whether it be women or children. And, they attack with sophisticated weapons against the bows and arrows of the natives.
    The glee with which the American Marines participate in this massacre is appalling and does not show the true feelings and concerns of the real United States Military. James Cameron should apologize to the American Military and should make a statement that he does not truly feel this way about them. He should also apologize to the American public for painting our young men and women that defend this country as cold blooded killers.
    However, I am sure the Mr. Cameron will not do this as the movie is obviously a political comment on Iraq and Afghanistan.
    On another issue, all of my regular readers know that I am a firm believer in Free Speech. I believe that this aspect of the Bill of Rights is absolute. Neither the left nor the right should have any say in limiting it. I agree with the United States Supreme Court on the few limitations on Free Speech they have declared as there is an obvious reason for those few and rare limitations.
    In the past few years, many department stores such as Target have decided that the use of the word Christmas should not be permitted in their stores. The new corporate policy is that it is the Holiday Season and these are Holiday sales. My brother wrote an article in this column a few weeks ago dealing with this very issue. I agree with my brother’s concerns.
    However, it has just come to my attention that Starwood’s Hotels has now adopted the same policy. I have been informed that all of their employees have been told that they are not permitted to say Merry Christmas or to type Merry Christmas in e-mails. To me this is a clear violation of both Free Speech and Freedom of Religion. If a person wants to wish another person a Merry Christmas, they should be able to do so freely.
    I have many Jewish friends. I wish them Happy Hanukah and many of them wish me a Merry Christmas. This is one of the Freedoms that are allowed in this country. If someone chooses to say “Happy Holidays,” that is also their own personal choice. But, when a company I am working for tells me that I cannot say “Merry Christmas,” this is going too far.
    Accordingly, I am asking that all people should begin a boycott of Starwood Hotels. Everyone that reads this column should pass this on through their e-mail lists, their Facebook account, their My Space account and their Twitter Accounts. The American public was able to force Target and other department stores into changing their policy back to the way it used to be. Let’s see if we can get Starwood to change its policy as well.

    I reviewed Avatar this week and this movie is so bad, all I can do is give you random thoughts about what I was thinking while I was watching it:
    In this movie, white men are evil, they kill the planet’s native peoples and take over their land, then the capitalists exploit their natural resources. Is this Avatar or the movie version of Obama’s apology tour?
    The worst thing about this movie is it’s 2 hours and 45 minutes length. The best thing about this movie is that it isn’t 2 hours and 46 minutes long. Bernie Madoff will be out of jail before this movie is over.
    The main character is in a wheelchair? Evil white men have the technology to fly to outer space but they can’t invent something better than a wheelchair? Bad news: they must still have universal health care in the future.
    I hate the Navee but I liked the Ewoks and Jar Jar Binks. Then again I have low standards.
    The Navee communicate with the trees, which they call wise. What I don’t understand is what can the trees be possibly saying, “the wind is going through my leaves. A woodpecker is pecking me. A bird just pooped on me.”
    Anyone who likes this movie is Avatarded.
    Cameron named the mineral the white man are fighting for un-obtain-ium. Could he have named it something more obvious? How about makes-white-man-rich-ium? This movie is so boring I’m in search of a valuable resource called un-insominia-um.
    Why are the white men bothering to disguise themselves as the Navee if they’re being dropped off by the really obvious military helicopters? Is it wrong that I’m voting for the bad guys? I really want them to kick some blue butt.
    I think it’s wrong that I’m reading subtitles: I don’t think anyone should be required to read subtitles for a made up language unless you’re watching Star Wars or Masaharu Myomoto on Iron Chef.
    I can see why the Palestinians are dressing themselves up as the Navee or as I like to call it, Anti-Semite Smurf. Or does Muslim Nazi Smurf have a better ring?
    Giovanni Ribisi is playing the evil Capitalist. I can tell because he’s wielding a golf club. Evil white men always wield golf clubs: look at OJ. Or Tiger Woods. Or Obama.
    The love scene is really gross.
    Watching two Navee make out is worse than watching my grandparents tongue kiss.
    Why is this movie in 3d? If I want to watch a civilization disintegrate in 3D, I’ll go to Washington DC and watch a congressional session. Or go substitute teach at a public school.
