James Cameroon’s Avatar is one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. Just think; Usually, we see in movies that Aliens come to Earth to attack us or communicate with us, but what happens if we, human civilization, go to another planet. We become an alien for them who already live in there .
That movie shows you the human civilization, started a journey to another living planet and used another planet for living. That planet has also had a civilization, but We don’t care about them, and we also harm them like an evil alien.
We can see living civilizations of the planet are very peaceful and innocent, and they love their nature and respect their cultures and rituals. Still, we cruel human want to destroy their nature as we did with ourselves.
Alien on this planet teaches us what real humanity is. This movie teaches you a lesson on how to love nature and keep growing without harming nature. That makes this movie amazing. You can actually attach with every character and relate and compare with us. You fell in love with civilization and feel the real importance of nature.
How they interact with nature and give value and respect to everything they have got makes you emotional. This is amazing, wonderful and Mind-blowing to see. I have never seen that type of beautiful and heart-touching sci-fi movie. This has to be number one on my list because it is number 1.
