    I couldn't stand the love story and the goodie-feeling I got from it. Half of the movie made me feel gay inside. I can't remember most of it anyway. I did like the Goliath looking things that they were using. I think it was my only compliment about the movie when I was asked if I liked it.

    I am a conservative American. I chose not to ever see the Avatar movie because of the underlying message woven in the script of anti-military and anti-American.

    Here's a CNN short video:
    http://am.blogs.cnn.com/2010/01/26/critics-avatar-is-anti-military-anti-religion/

    With that being said, on the other hand my family and I are the biggest Science Fiction fans. Can't get enough Star Trek (any generation lol), Star Wars, V Series and the like, virtually anything Sci/Fi with all the special effects!

    Because I support our US military and frankly military men and women across the pond and other military groups that protect their country, I couldn't in good conscientious see Avatar. I felt that I would be betraying the very men and women that keep my family, friends and country safe.

    I am not any different when it comes to other entertainment media. When I found out about ABC's new show GCB's, I've boycotted ABC and all the sponsors of that show, which includes; JcPenney and Target to name two sponsors.

    Don't you think that's a tad extreme? It's just a movie.

    Wow - I don't know how I managed to miss your post GalPal. But I must say that it is the most absurd thing I think I've ever seen posted in a discussion forum LOL - So here's your award:

    The concept behind the Avatar surpasses any mundane rumifications regarding the American military. The underlying message I saw woven throughout the script is all about learning to merge unlike worlds and unlike minds into a conceptual peace, even when the forces that be (or rather the asshats with more capital) are dead set against such a peace. I think of my favorite Sojourner Truth quote when I consider the Avatar concept:

    "These together" referring Jake Sully & Neytiri ... "Right side up again" obviously occurred when the negative forces where marched off Pandora.

    Then considering the actual meaning of "Pandora" (according to Greek mythology) is the very first woman (formed out of clay by the gods) who's referred to as the giver of all things or endowed with everything...

    I'm rambling. But yeah... Avatar is much deeper than anti-American Military, you only need to look deeper to gain such appreciation for it I suppose.

    Actually - I'm about an hour and a half into Avatar now - I paused immediately so that I can express this thought. Saying Avatar is conceptually an anti-American military propoganda film is valid.

    I say such a labeling is more juvenile than valid though, especially when we take into consideration that we're talking about HUGE blue people. :noid: lol - okay - I will most certainly enjoy the rest of my film whilst knowing deep in the pit of my heart that I am a patriot ;)

    I haven't read the entire thread... 7 pages about avatar is a bit much for me :D But I enjoyed the film. It was amusing, the cgi wasn't awful. I wasn't interested in the anti-military or any other type of propoganda that might or might not have been in there. I watched it for what it was - a couple of hours entertainment.. and it did the job :p

    I started to watch it, but I was bored by it very fast. It is "Pocahontas reloaded" and the look was more nauseating than exciting to me and I assume I have stopped watching just before the cool characters came, because after 20 minutes I haven't seen any.
    Furthermore I believe Cameron is one of the most overrated people in the movie business.
