you guys talk about it like youve already seen it. how can you possibly know if the plot has been done? for all we know, they only showed clips from the first half of the movie.

trailer was cool. ill prob go see it at the midnight show.

Yes, exactly, it is very much like that. You see the same theme in "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" and also "The Emerald Forest," which maybe thematically isn't that connected but it did have that clash of civilizations or of cultures. That was another reference point for me. There was some beautiful stuff in that film. I just gathered all this stuff in and then you look at it through the lens of science fiction and it comes out looking very different but is still recognizable in a universal story way. It's almost comfortable for the audience – "I know what kind of tale this is." They're not just sitting there scratching their heads, they're enjoying it and being taken along. And we still have turns and surprises in it, too, things you don't see coming. But the idea that you feel like you are in a classic story, a story that could have been shaped by Rudyard Kipling or Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Every plot has been done dozens of times. In fact Avatar's was done in the mid 90s so that negates the possibility of it ripping off anything new.

I want to address this. I'm also one of those who isn't interested in Avatar because it's a plot we've seen so many times it's just cliche. With the way Hollywood pumps out remakes nowadays, it sure does seem like every plot has been done before. However, I've recently been watching a lot of really unique movies, like Memento, Insomnia, Following (notice a pattern?), as well as Primer, 2001, Donnie Darko and The Nines, and I've developed a real appreciation for unique stories in films. I think it's fair to say that while there are certain stories that are done to death over and over - Fern Gully/Dancing with Wolves/Avatar being one of them - it is very possible to have unique stories, and those films often end up being the most interesting to watch for me. I'm sure some people like a comfortable story as Cameron claims, but I'm pretty tired of it.

With all the hype and money Cameron's putting into the movie, I expected something really unique and interesting, but now that i know its based off the blueprint for Dances with wolves.. ehh

also this.

It's Dances With Wolves with blue cat people. They're pretty much depending on the special effects to get people into the theater.

Wasn't very excited about this movie at first. Then I heard James Cameron was directing and I got a bit more excited. Then I saw a really long trailer for it, and now I'm extremely excited.

have you seen it or are you basing that off the fact that it's a movie about cultural differences?

and I'm sure this movie is totally all about the plot.
