‘Avatar’ sports both stunning graphics and environmentalist Gnosticism

.- CNA’s review of James Cameron’s new film “Avatar” 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 “big, bad American soldiers vs. simple, innocent natives” in a simplistic manner comparable to a Warner Brother’s cartoon.

“Avatar” is the realization of a long-term dream on the part of James Cameron, director of “Titanic” and “Terminator 2.” He wrote the film’s 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 “the ‘villain’ of the film, (is) a colonel who commands the slaughter of the Na’vi tribe from an airplane while nonchalantly sipping a cup of coffee.” It also explains that “the Na’vi funeral rites are scenes modeled after the hippie festivals of the 1970s.”

The review predicts that the film will undoubtedly win awards for its spectacular cinematography. However, the reason it will receive much acclaim “is because the film represents Hollywood's official dogma of religion without God or personal moral commitments” despite the relative success of other deeper, more positive films this season, such as “The Blind Side.”
