Avatar Movie


Over the weekend I went to see the movie Avatar.  It was amazing in all regards.  While I was watching it all I could think of is that it looked like a Roger Dean painting had come to life (think of all the YES covers in ’70’s).  It was lush and the detail was insanely good, right down the most minute movements.  James Cameron is like George Lucas on steroids.  While there we several side stories going on in the movie and a few underlying messages in the film, the main theme of the movie can be summed up in one sentence – “You can’t take by force from one group of people and give it to another simply because they need it“.  While I don’t think that was the main message James Cameron wanted to deliver, it’s clearly in there.  The best line in the movie came from the main character (Sully) just before he had to face a daunting task – “Sometimes your whole life comes down to one insane move“.  I love that line.  I think a lot of people can relate to that.

  1. “You can’t take by force from one group of people and give it to another simply because they need it” —- hmmmmm…..you can apply that to money.
    Lets rephrase that…..”You can’t take money by taxes from one group of people and give it to another simply because they need it”

  2. Exactly. I’m sure the director wanted to make the point that war is bad and is an empire etc… but the other side of that coin is that one groups need does not automatically constitute a claim on another group.
