Shock! Avatar is Anti-American

I hadn't planned to see this mainly because Cameron's ridiculous attempt last year to say he discovered Jesus' tomb but now it seems he's not only anti-Christian but anti-American too. Big Hollywood has the review::

Absent from the big screen for over a decade now, Oscar-winning director James Cameron returns armed with a reported half-billion dollars, a story he’s been desperate to tell for 15 years, and the very latest in cutting-edge visual technology. The result is “Avatar,” a sanctimonious thud of a movie so infested with one-dimensional characters and PC clich├ęs that not a single plot turn – small or large – surprises. I call it the “liberal tell,” where the early and obvious politics of the film gives away the entire story before the second act begins, and “Avatar” might be the sorriest example of this yet. For all the time and money and technology that went into its making, the thing that matters most – character and story – are strictly Afterschool Special.

It's absolutely American to be able to speak badly about America. If you don't understand that, you are the one that is un-American.

It IS American to be able to speak badly about America. It is ALSO American to get mad at a movie so obviously portraying your people and military as two-dimensional greedy evil people.

Libs like you always call any criticism of your viewpoint as un-American, but the first amendment goes in all directions, buddy.

It's not anti-American people. It's anti-corporate America. Something nearly every American I have talked to in the last 5 years is against. There is a healthy balance between nature and mankind, and profit motivated corporate entities are driven to rape the natural world in order to survive. In the corporate world, the best serial rapist wins. This movie is pro-human morals, even though the human's lose in the end.

I love how all of the ultra right winger Christians come out of the woodwork when a movie even hints that we, the great and mighty people made in gods image, could possibly be reliant and interconnected to our natural world. What I see are people who, in attacking the movie, are really trying to defend their wasteful and unsustainable lifestyles. But hey, god gave you this world to do with as you please right, so when you wipe your *** with it its all good cause your going to heaven!

I've got to say, I'm a pretty liberal left-leaning guy, but I found the politics of the movie nauseating. I'm all for self-reflection and constructive criticism of our society, but that movie was completely free of nuance: we, America, are evil and soul-less, and the Middle East (for example), is the personification of goodness, completely natural and blameless. Come on. To bad it was so freakin' exhilarating. I'm already excited about seeing it again... but next time, I'm sneaking in so I don't give that schmuck any more money -- he'll probably donate it to Hamas to further their benevolent cause of lobbing missiles at civilians...
