Naw naw Avatar was a rehash of Star Trek INS. Only Piller wrote white people in the role of the Nav'i. Had INS had pretty blue cat people who lived in a tree. People might have been more empathetic to their plight.

Story still the same as the others named above. Evil rich white man comes to take advantage of the ethnics of a foreign land and rape their land for resources. Avatar's spectacle outweighs it's substance. Which is why it made nearly 3 billion in theatres. You forget it's a rehash story about exploitation. Since it's more adventure fantasy. The weakest films ( INS, Pocahontas, Fern Gulley) are all preachy about their plot and expect the exploitation plot to drive people for repeated viewings.
