Some people may regard "Avatar" the movie as a futuristic fairytale in a lava lamp-lit world called "Pandora."

Just look at your history books or watch the current events in international news (or maybe you need only look in your own country).
Personally, I am reminded of the Disney animated movie "Pocahontas," only here, Capt. John Smith is a blue-skinned ex-marine and Pocahontas is a Na'vi princess. But hey, they both carry bows and arrows! In 150 years into the future, though, people are more concerned about survival than auto insurance quotes. Besides, I don't think cars would exist then.
