^Yes, Avatar is just a rip-off of other (better) material (btw, nice find). The late great Poul Anderson novella Call Me Joe was also heavily ripped off by Cameron...hell, Anderson even had a novel called Avatar...though it had nothing to do with Avatars . (This isn't the first time Cameron has ripped off better storytellers either (just look at Terminator, which was stolen from a Harlan Ellison Outer Limits episode).)

Being overly formulaic and unoriginal doesn't stop the movie from being fun, though...
