Na'Vi Sex

I didn't love Avatar when I saw it in the theater, but I still picked it up on Blu Ray the other day because it was very entertaining. Also, as Blu Rays go, I've never seen a disc that better shows off the technology. This Blu Ray looks amazing. In fact, I think it looks better on my Blu Ray player than it did in the theater, despite the fact that it's not even in 3D.

Anyway, all I really wanted to say is this: I just don't believe Jake Sully would have sex with a Na'Vi, no matter how strongly he felt toward her emotionally. I mean, she was a freaky looking blue chick with cat eyes, mouse ears, and a tail. I guess what I'm saying is that I wouldn't have sex with her, which does not in any way make me a racist against the Na'Vi. I don't think that corporation should've killed any of them or made any attempt to forcibly remove them from their home. But come on. I understand that he was in an Avatar body, but even then he wouldn't consciously think about that fact. It's not like there are any mirrors out in the wolds of Pandora. He would still think of himself as Jake Sully, human being.

I dunno. I guess I'm just saying that the film would have been better had they gotten rid of the love subplot. Wouldn't it have been that much more profound if Sully had risked his lives to save the Na'Vi because he loved their culture and wanted it to survive, and not just because he fell in love with some weird blue chick and had nasty sex with her?

But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

i haven't seen it yet (yes, i'm about 40 years behind) but I'm gonna take a gamble here and say that James Cameron needs to hire a writer and STOP writing love stories, forever. Hasn't he been married and divorced like 5 times? I think he's doing it wrong.

I'd hit it.

We both know that you would NOT hit it. She's freaky and blue.

Justin Garrett Blum said...

Sure I would. I'm not a racist.

Let me put it this way: I'd rather have sex with Heytiri than a gross human.

as long as she didn't make a duck face, of course.
