@mylifeforAiur: It has the same basic idea of a guy joining a group of persecuted people and helping them defeat whatever is trying to destroy them.I suppose so, but I still feel that comparing Avatar with District 9 is a little bit silly.
@Tartarus said:Avatar is the much more classical take on the tale but I think the comparisons are valid. Even if the ones listed here are bit more PG13 than District 9 was.@mylifeforAiur: It has the same basic idea of a guy joining a group of persecuted people and helping them defeat whatever is trying to destroy them.I suppose so, but I still feel that comparing Avatar with District 9 is a little bit silly.
Man, Atlantis is so similar. If Avatar would have shown the discovery of the planet Pandora they would be nearly the same movie! I think it would be easier to say what is different about them.
Atlantis isn't similar to Avatar, it's more similar to Stargate than any of these films.
@PenguinDust said:I apologize then. I read too many threads when the movie was popular about it being Pocahontas in space, so I assumed this was another one of those. Like the Twilight movies, Avatar seems to inspire a higher level of animosity than other disliked movies.Are we still bashin' Avatar? Aren't we over that by now? I don't like the film, but I've had my fill of thinly-veiled ridicule like this.This isn't bashing Avatar by any means. I liked the movie!
