Among other things. And people are quick to forget that Star Wars pretty much rips this film off directly:



Lesson is: if you're going to lift from another work for your own, make sure most Americans haven't seen it.

At this point, the pocahontas references are about as fresh and the hamlet/lion king references. that is to say, not at all


The irony being that posting a pocahontas poster, what, 2 months after the film has been released and the point has been made thousands of times on the internet, on tv, in magazines, shows even less originality than the story in Avatar

No, I did not shit all over the Lion King. If James Cameron does a Lion King remake, then I probably will.

Apparently I'm getting a little too worked up. I just dont understand why someone would want to print off that script thing and show it to people who genuinely liked the movie. Why shit all over their parade? They know the story is similar to a couple other movies. they've heard it a thousand times before you brought it up. but guess what? They just dont care. What is it that makes you want to try to ruin it for other people?

my point is i never read this thread, i don't go scowering the interwebs for fucking avatar reviews, i saw the movie last night knowing absolutely nothing about any sort of pocahontis connection, immediately thought that i had seen the movie before, thought the script was disney like but at first couldn't think of anything other than the little mermaid, then had my eureka moment today during a morning constitutional where i finally realized that it was, in fact, pocahontis, and decided to share my glee and figuring it out.

my bad if i'm late to the avatar is technologicly amazing but the story is a load of crap party.

I laughed at the script thing at the time that IYS posted it, but yeah, that was like a month or so ago? Avatar is a pretty good movie (as in, it's exactly what it sets out to be) and the comparisons with Pocahontas and other similar stories from the American frontier are so obvious, to the point that it seems hard to believe that someone who likes the film wouldn't notice.

Anyway, I'd still rather watch The Lion King than a performance of Hamlet.
