Well, that's because District 9 had subtlety and nuance, two words that weren't even in James Cameron's vocabulary when he made Avatar.

Missouri, actually. Or Utah. I forget.

Anyway, I was just thinking about how in every alien invasion movie, America's military is the one that comes to the rescue. Hmm.

There's a line at the beginning of District 9 I really liked: "They didn't come to Washington, or New York, or Los Angeles like everyone expected. They came to Johannesburg." Or something like that. I really liked that.

Right, but that idea is ridiculous. I still enjoy those films, its just nice to dissect it a little bit. No one is calling YOU racist...

If you use that argument, ANYTHING can be classified as racism. Jesus, who the fuck cares if he was white or brown or yellow. Christ, give it a rest.
I have not seen the movie. I may. In the previews, wasn't the guy blue?
