I loved this movie. For many reasons. And I don’t even like blue!
As a quick response to a friend, I said “This is what life can be like, once you get the white guys (and other guys) with guns out of the way.”
Anybody with a gun seems to think they have a solution to a problem. All they have is a way to change the problem into something else entirely. Usually much worse.
I loved the fact that men and women were not sexual with each other in ordinary encounters, even though no one of the NaVi had many clothes on. I loved their easy and casual power and grace, even though much of it was computer generated. I loved the powerful woman shaman. I loved those dragons! I loved the way the NaVi felt and thought, and loved their beautiful tree. I loved the helicopter pilot at the very end, with her tribal markings.
I don’t understand folk who do not like this movie, or who don’t think it has much plot. Its plot is the entire paradigm shift, presented in its entirety. Without philosophical discussion. Maybe they should just go see it again – take a Rescue Remedy pastille first to release any tension, quit thinking, and just allow the movie to happen.
There’s a thing or two I could nitpick, but I’d rather not. I rather just be there in that space with those people.
