Dances With Wolves in space, it’s been called. Or worse. Another waste of money from the PC crowd:
“Lacking the conflict and flaws that make the Indians so fascinating and tragic, the Na’vi are utterly boring…the childlike environmentalist daydream of a ‘perfect’ society, sustainably at peace with Mother Nature, is captured in the image of the Na’vi tribe snuggled in hammock-like leaves, embraced by the vast branches of their goddess tree. No ambitions, no failures, no questions, no achievement, no future. These giant blue aliens leave absolutely no carbon footprint.”
Created by people who wouldn’t live this way if they could. Doctor Zero: the ultimate suicide fantasy.
UPDATE: It makes the Marines look bad? What, an anti-military Hollyweird flick? Now there’s a surprise.
MORE: It lost out in the Oscars to a low-budget Iraq war movie, ironically, and even more ironically, the war flick was directed by the ex-wife of the Avatar director. Heh.
Doctor Zero goes all out on Copenhagen and its calls for squeezing industrial economies:
"We’re not going to politely ignore swarms of private jets and limos ferrying you to carbon-belching ‘climate summits,’ where you draw up plans for the Western proletariat to live as primitive hunter-gatherers."
Heh. Worth a look.
"…the White House recently invited loyal citizens to report when they receive ‘an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy’ to the official e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. Loyal citizens are to report fishy comments to Linda Douglass, someone who looks suspiciously like Krupskaya [Lenin’s wife], or Nurse Ratched."
Via Power Line.
Doctor Zero also has a good post on why some of us so look forward to next year’s congressional elections. Which, of course, is why Barry and the Dems are hurrying to pass everything they want now.
