13 years have passed Avatar The film, directed by James Cameron, was released and became one of the most successful films of all time, grossing over $2 billion. Over the years, fans have not forgotten the lovely story of Jake Sully, Neytiri and the Na’vi, the indigenous tribe of Pandora. Needless to say, they can’t wait until the second installment in the final series hits theaters on December 15, 2022.
Despite being a fantasy action movie, Avatar Touch on very realistic themes about nature, colonization, capitalism and indigenous tribes. While this is no joke and the movie can be dramatic, there are fans who have discovered the humorous side of the film and created memes that summarize it perfectly.
not that avatar
Can’t try to summarize James Cameron’s movies Doesn’t solve the general hatred between fans The Last Airbender and Avatar share the same title. Although both works tell the story of a specific group of people who are terrorizing other tribes and cities, they are not the same.
Yes, Quaritch and Parker could well be part of the Fire Nation, but they won’t be joining the ambitious crossover between the two stories anytime soon. However, fans have always liked to compare the two and scoff at how hard it is to talk about them without confusing them, as the meme points out.
Humans and Na’vi
People often call the Na’vi the Avatar and humans… the humans. However, as the meme correctly shows, different terms are used for each species throughout the film and only AvatarThe bravest characters and the most die-hard fans know the term in Na’vi.
Audiences who remember the words invented for James Cameron’s movies can proudly compare themselves to a fancy Winnie the Pooh bear wearing hoods. Although, besides memorizing the terminology, the most important thing to know is that Aesotuts and Na’vi were enemies of each other.
Avatar As swole cheems pointed out, it’s a “great immersive experience and a good story” but even the creator of this meme describes people who think the movie can match the movie. Pocahontas, Dancing with the Wolves, And fern ditch As the weaker team, they have a valid point.
After all, Neytiri can be compared to Pocahontas, Jake can be compared to John Smith, Tsu’tey can be compared to Kocoum, and Quaritch or Selfridge can be compared to Governor Ratcliff. The plot is also very similar. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad movie. There’s a reason it’s one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, mainly because it does a great job of owning and leveraging the same plot.
no cultural influence
The Na’vi are inspired by various indigenous and tribal cultures; therefore, although they are fictitious, they represent many real problems on Earth. From questioning man’s relationship with nature to criticizing genocide, Avatar Covers all the important topics.
However, as the meme pointed out, most critics agree that the film lacks social impact, which is fair. Although, the quality of a movie is not based primarily on how well it helps people change their lifestyles, but on how wonderfully its story is told.
quaritch is evil
Quaritch is your quintessential soldier who just loves killing, invading and stealing other people’s resources. He is greedy, violent and evil. So it’s only fair to compare him to a Kaboom-speaking Madagascar penguin.
Quaritch’s stubbornness and indifference to others makes him never question whether it’s fair to destroy a tribe’s home on another planet for human purposes. Avatar The special effects are so groundbreaking that the scene where Quaritch shoots and bombs Pandora seems too realistic, making him the biggest bad guy.
capitalism wants to change the universe
Avatar This is one of James Cameron’s best movies for several reasons. While the film’s special effects are what earned the film the most recognition and acclaim, it also made the audience question how far capitalism and war have come in its promise of change. change the world in the name of progress.
Jack, like many others, believes in Quaritch’s promise that he will use Pandora’s resources to make the world a better place. Sully believes the purpose of soldiers is good because Star Wars’ Padmé Amidala believes in Anakin Skywalker, but in the end, the concept of them “changing the world” is associated with genocide and tyranny.
Pandara is dangerous!
Like Earth, Pandora’s wildlife is both amazing and dangerous, and when Jack comes to Pandora as his avatar, he falls prey to the ferocious and fearsome Tanato. Soon, his weapon proved useless against the creature, and Sally had no choice but to run away.
The moment is comparable to the one depicted in the meme, when a little girl frantically runs away from an orangutan on a bicycle. Orangutans are more dangerous than orangutans, but Jack can’t defend himself like a child.
Not suitable for everyone
most of Avatar Suitable for (most) all ages, but there is an intimate scene that may not be suitable for viewing with some family members. The sex scenes were awkward enough, but seeing the sex scene between two blue aliens was… at least weird.
So it’s understandable that any younger audience would be embarrassed to be caught by their parents watching Neytiri and Jake’s intimate moments. Admittedly most young people are unlucky, under all normal circumstances Avatar Of course, at that particular awkward moment, parents step in.
It is not without reason that Tsu’tey is hostile to Jake and Grace for most of the film’s length. He distrusts humans, and his death proves him right, though he ultimately relies on Sully to lead the tribe. It took him a while to trust Jack, and before that, he was pretty mean to him.
A perfect example is the scene where the meme refers hilariously, although there are plenty of other moments where it’s clear Tsu’tey would rather see Sully die before endangering his tribe and Pandora’s resources. . That is fair.
Jack was born a toruk knight
What Na’vi took years of practice to master, Jake learned in just a few days, and not only that, he became the best human being. He does better Na’vi than Na’vi, and while that’s a bit cliché and easily criticized, it’s fun to watch.
In one of his greatest feats, Jack proved his worth and skill by excelling in Toruk Riding. As the meme depicts, he ends his flight with a sense of heroism and superiority over Christopher Lee’s vanity.
