.- CNAâs review of James Cameronâs new film âAvatarâ highlights the stunning visuals as well as the disturbing and blatant New Age agenda the movie embodies. It shows the film to be a 21st century version of âbig, bad American soldiers vs. simple, innocent nativesâ in a simplistic manner comparable to a Warner Brotherâs cartoon.
âAvatarâ is the realization of a long-term dream on the part of James Cameron, director of âTitanicâ and âTerminator 2.â He wrote the filmâs script 14 years ago, long before the technology to make the movie possible became available in 2005. While that technology creates absolutely breathtaking visual cinematography, the plot itself is a thinly-masked push for a very secular environmental agenda.
The film employs a variety of shallow stereotypes. In fact, the review notes that âthe âvillainâ of the film, (is) a colonel who commands the slaughter of the Naâvi tribe from an airplane while nonchalantly sipping a cup of coffee.â It also explains that âthe Naâvi funeral rites are scenes modeled after the hippie festivals of the 1970s.â
The review predicts that the film will undoubtedly win awards for its spectacular cinematography. However, the reason it will receive much acclaim âis because the film represents Hollywood's official dogma of religion without God or personal moral commitmentsâ despite the relative success of other deeper, more positive films this season, such as âThe Blind Side.â
