I watched Avatar the other day. It is brilliant, one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time. Problem is, apparently, it isn't meant to be a comedy, which in turn makes it rather tragic.

Boring, boring, boring, tree huggers versus nasty corporations, and they see no irony in this as the theme of a mainstream Hollywood film distributed by Fox? God save us from these hypocritical luvvies who would die before giving up their air conditioning, swimming pools and SUVs but feel compelled to tell the rest of us how we should live.

Cameron says there will be a sequel and maybe even a third film. So why not bring in the Alien or Predator franchise. I'd love to see how the lovely giant, blue, tree hugging, cat people get on against Aliens/Predators or even Apone's space marines.

If you want some sci-fi don’t bother with Avatard have a read of Live Free or Die by John Ringo.

One final thought; If I was an evil corporate type working on a far away planet populated by a bunch of primitive cat people who like to plug their hair into things I’d set up 240 volt electrical sockets all over the place. Problem solved. Then again maybe it was just me that was rooting for the corporation to win this one.
