James Cameron Hates America
In lieu of another “War on Christmas” panic, it seems that the conservative culture war of December 2009 will be over James Cameron’s much-hyped, almost-as-much-anticipated blockbuster “Avatar.” John Nolte, the editor of Andrew Breitbart’s influential “Big Hollywood” site, was first out of the gate with a review that accuses Cameron of making an anti-war screed, a sci-fi version of Operation Iraqi Freedom with evil earthlings killing aliens for their energy resources.
Think of “Avatar” as “Death Wish 5” for leftists. A simplistic, revisionist revenge fantasy where if you freakin’ hate the bad guys (America), you’re able to forgive the by-the-numbers predictability of it all and still get off watching them get what they got coming.
Nolte’s review is getting around on the right; the odds of this sinking an action film with glowing reviews from the critics still seem slim.
