Yeah.

The Cleveland Show thing was painfully unfunny.

The Bum Review thing was less funny than that.

Damn, just as I thought I had changed it quick enough.

But what the hell would a song about going "Balls Deep" have to do with Avatar?

I couldn't stand this movie. I am not going to go on a rant right now but it is the most overated film in the history of cinema.

Everyone that one that doesn't see this is making a great choice

The White Messiah Fable, which this film uses, is a very common Hollywood/Disney plot device. Pocahontas, Dances with Wolves, Last Samurai, for example. Is it racist? No, not necessarily, but it plays heavily upon the racial sensitivies of the crowd. A white hero makes the film more relateable, and it is as if a member of the audiences is actively involved in saving these poor 'Natives.' And in some films, like Blind Side and Glory, based on reality, they acheive the same effect by maximizing the few white peoples' roles, and downplaying the black people (the focus of the movie.)

In general, even if they had used a nonwhite person (seriously, they could have chosen any race and they happened to go with a white guy? C'mon, nothing in Hollywood is 'accidental.'), the idea of a human having to come to the rescue of the poor weak aliens is pretty lame too. They used that in District 9, which I actually liked, but a trite concept nonetheless.

District 9 doesn't really use that concept at all, though. He becomes an alien against his will, and wants no part of it. He makes no attempt to "fit in" with the aliens, and only helps one alien so he can get something in return (a cure). It's pretty clear that he has no interest in helping the aliens as a group or in learning more about them. He isn't a savior of anyone, save the lone alien who he helps, like I said, for selfish reasons.

Thats true. I didn't think of that. I take back what I said.

And somehow, this made him into a better and more interesting character.
