Last weekend I went for the second time to watch Avatar 3D, the movie of the year 2010, by the movie critics… Now, why the movie of the year? My friends make me comments always oriented to the “bad argument” of it, “the story is too lineal” or “the story is too childish”… May be you’re interested in knowing why then I do agree with the critics and why do I think that Avatar means to me one of the most important movies of the last times.
It is not the story but what it lays behind, which makes Avatar a transcendental movie, a Science Fiction classic of our days. A story to be expanded and to stay in western culture for years to come. In none of this does the story take part, that love and war story, almost a copy of the movie “The mission”, metaphor of the Spanish (and English) acculturation to the natives of America goes almost unnoticed in contrast with the pseudo-scientific background that lays behind.
