A bunch of cinebugs has been screaming Na’vi at the utter predictability of Avatar’s plot, one that is very similar to Pocahontas.
Is the movie that just sank Titanic at the box office as pathbreaking as it has been touted to be? No, according to a section of cinebugs on the Web, who have been screaming Na’vi at the utter predictability of Avatar’s plot. The story, they point out, was a rather good vehicle for James Cameron to show off all his toys. A man comes over with invading forces into a peaceful, nature-loving society. Man learns native culture and falls in love with native woman. Take a look at this and decide for yourself.
