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.
