Re: Avatar (2009)
I also enjoyed Avatar immensely, and yes, shoddy plot taped together by rule of cool spit and gum, but so what? Sure the Earthlings could have just done an orbital bombing without going all 'Nam on the Naavi. Sure it's a mishmash of apparently dozens of ripped off concepts from the gold age of sci-fi and beyond. But watching it gave such a rush. And I bet that just like Star Wars it gave a temporary boost to everyone pitching 'sci-fi' projects to the bigwigs.
