I'm a bit late to join the discussion, but I always wait til somebody buys the DVD and invites me to watch it. I watched it on a blue ray flat screen.
So that was nearly 2 weeks ago, and it was the first film I wanted to watch again, right away. I hope I will get it for my upcoming birthday.
And now I must say it is my favorite movie!
I should add I love indigenous people since I was a little girl when I asked for a black doll.
My big brother gave me a doll from Hawaii, coining me forever, probably.
But back to the movie.
The attitude of the Na'vi was a mirror of my own inner world, my own connection to animals and plants. (Of course I don't ride dragons.
During the destruction I could not stop crying. When I watch a movie I pretty much forget the world around me.
I was taken aback by all the violence, thinking about the non-violent Buddhist path, but I will have to admit I found myself shaking my fist to heaven, when the tables turned and the Na'vi pulled aircrafts down.
Another very emotional moment came for me when the paralyzed guy fell out of his machine and his Na'vi wife found him lifeless and bedded his head on her lap.
She was so large and strong, and he so weak, and yet she looked at him with such love and compassion, wow, it totally blew my mind.
I found the green aspects in the movie wonderful.
This planet is getting ruined by the white race, while the indigenous people were able to blend in and live in harmony and respect with their surroundings.
This is the way in which my garden has become a biotop, a sanctuary for all that wants to live there.
Thus inspired and being a practical nature, I FINALLY did what I always wanted to do in this life :
I am now engaged in a rain forest project.
You know I am making jewelry.
I have created a rain forest edition and have already sold a part of it.
I will donate a part of my gain to a rainforest organisation. 1 m² costs only 1 cent.
With only 1 Euro I can buy 100 m² rainforest!
With 10 Euros 1000 m²!
It feels so right.
Take a look, and if you like, participate.http://schmuckzauberei.blogspot.com/
Forgive my passion, but I've had it with watching and talking, now is the time to do something.
When, if not now.
