Seen John Carter and Avatar?

JOHN CARTER STORYLINE:


John Carter, a Civil War veteran who in 1868 was trying to live a normal life, is “asked” by the Army to join. But he refuses so he is locked up. He escapes and is pursued. Eventually they run into some Indians and there’s a gunfight. Carter seeks refuge in a cave. While there he encounters someone who is holding some kind of medallion. When Carter touches it, he finds himself in a place where he can leap incredible heights, among other things. He later encounters beings he has never seen before. Later he meets a woman who helps him to discover that he is on Mars. And he learns there’s some kind of unrest going on.Credits to: http://www.imdb.com

AVATAR STORYLINE:


When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge’s intentions of driving off the native humanoid “Na’vi” in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na’vi people with the use of an “avatar” identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand – and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.Credits to: http://www.imdb.com

So when I finished watching these two, I noticed something about the story. They chose not to be the people of the Earth anymore. I’m just sad that these are their idea of their movie. I enjoyed watching both of them and I superlove it. I am not against those movies. But why? What’s wrong with our very own Earth? Why do they have to choose Mars and Pandora. I am just frustrated.

  1. Great post! I heard an interesting take once on Avatar: Pandora repesents humans before the great flood. Remnants of a supernova were said by scientists to have pelted the earth around 11,500 years ago. The pelting lasted around 2,000 years. Before that, humans felt deeply connected and in harmony with nature. Humans barely survived the pelting and have become a traumatized species after that. We are getting a glimpse of what we were before the flood.
