The movie, to me, reinforced the idea that humans treat life like sh@#, even their own. People can disagree with that but it's absolutely true. No
one seems to care about anything but themselves and their immediate family, and/or being successful or satisfied even if it's only temporary. Humans
settle for the most simple crap when it come to happiness, like cows.
You watch as the main group of humans are the bad guys. They invade, they take over, kill, steal and ravage a peaceful world that was basically
portrayed as majestic without human contact. You see the indigenous, simple and primal way of life that supplies a long term happiness to the aliens
AND a few of the humans who learn to see through different eyes. This is the same simple underlying way of life that exist through every living
human/thing on earth. The difference is, we have distraction and live a life full of desire and disillusioned necessity and cannot connect to the
simple process that leads to true happiness.
In my opinion, a lot of the hype and depression that is being felt by people is the small glimpse at that simplicity. The movie was two and a half
hours of what most people long for vs what we really are. It's not the fact that the Na'vi are blue aliens that is so attractive to the brain, but
the connection they had in the movie, which we don't.
I don't think people want to be aliens... but the idea, the understanding and interaction the aliens had with their world makes humans and earth look
like fat, lazy, greedy, stuck up children with sticks, who don't care what they do to their home or others around them as long as they get their
which is EXACTLY what we are.
