Don't be fooled by the marketing: James Cameron's "Avatar" is the true fairy tale here. Princess Tiana may be kissing frogs to help make dreams eventually come true- but she does it knowing hard work, faith, and integrity must match a good strong mind to get the job done. That is the real truth.
Avatar pushes a strong and disturbing political agenda behind those beautiful images on the screen. Its fantasy world is beautiful to see, but it is just that: an extreme fantasy with nary a shred of truth behind it. Additionally, the movie's animist worldview diminishes the uniqueness of man versus God's creation, making the movie a total waste of time and money.
