Yeah, it always ends up to have a white human doing morale lessions - but a human with morale is a paradoxon in itself. The Nav'i should have asked the Predetaors instead for help - at least they are experienced in genocide.
There might be not *enough* oxygen for humans. After all, humans have masks with filters, but no air cylinders, which suggests that there is oxygen in the atmosphere, but also some other gases or particulates that need to be filtered out.
When a thanator shows up early in the movie, several hammerhead titanotheres scatter in fear. But by the end of the movie titanotheres are able to mow down and kill troups in AMP suits, while a thanator is easily defeated by one guy, the colonel, in an AMP suit. (1) Comments
One can use their keycard to help high value prisoners escape, communicate with the escapees while their are in hiding using the company's communication system, and still not be suspected of anything. (0) Comments
If a fully trained Ph.D. who's spent her whole life studying the planet and its life starts telling you that it's scientifically verifiable that all the life is interconnected, you should just accuse her of using drugs. (1) Comments
The daughter of the leader will be the hottest girl on the planet and the leader will let ONLY her and not any Na'vi bad-ass guy to teach the stranger (who can most probably be a spy from the enemy). (0) Comments
The Activist's Survival Guide lists an attempt to mine a floating mountain, which worked well until they took out too much unobtanium. Like a balloon leaking helium, the mountain could no longer float and it crashed, killing the mining crew.
You're in the future, you know enough of Na'vi biology to not only recreate their bodies but to create workable Na'vi/human hybrids yet a bio-weapon solution to your na'vi problem that would spare you resources and manpower completely escapes you. (0) Comments
The best way to take on an advanced battle plane, twice your size, twice the armor and twice the fire power is head first, then when you run out of ammunition you stay in front of it, fly side to side hoping it misses you and wait to die.

Apparently, in the future it costs a lot of money to heal someone who's paraplegic, but there is money to go around for building a device that transfers your mind/soul into an Avatar...go figure. (0) Comments
When humans venture out to explore other solar systems, they'll find that the closest star to our sun has earthlike planets around it. And that those planets will have rich, intelligent life. And something extremely valuable to humans. And on it, you'll be able to walk around on it wearing jeans and a tank top, just so long as you bring an oxygen mask. (0) Comments
Some of them stayed at the end, you can see at least one in Navi form wearing human clothes and wielding a gun to make sure the departing humans don't get out of line. If you mean where were they during the events in the movie, well, it's a pretty big planet, and they were a research team, not a summer camp (contrary to what you'd expect given the cabin on the military base... okay, you know what? Never mind, total summer camp.)
Even though you're very wary of a stranger coming into your world, trust your daughter's words about floating seeds without question and be sure to teach that suspicious stranger absolutely everything practical and sacred about your tribe. What could it hurt? (1) Comments
Why didn't they place subcutaneous tracking devices inside each of the Avatars? Then when Jake got separated from the group when he escaped the predator, they'd be able to find him almost instantly. (0) Comments
Key aspects of a bombing operation include:
1. Deploying ground troops in a hostile and claustrophobic jungle for no reason.
2. Using an incredibly slow, clunky, and vulnerable bomber that moves at half a mile per hour and has an open hangar bay.
3. Manually pushing the explosives out, like its 1914 all over again. (0) Comments
The 20,000 Na'vi already amassed will undoubtedly overrun the perimeter, as traditional military rules of the defenders having an advantage does not apply to fortified compounds protected by an air fleet still at full strength and surrounded by a vast asphalt killing field. (0) Comments
In the year 2154 liberals will still be in charge, and George Bush's two consecutive terms will still be remembered, so every bad guy will be required to utilize the phrase "shock and awe" and will threaten to "terrorize the terrorists," when the terrorists are but a peaceful, indigenous life-form.

Ceasing fire on the indigenous population's big damn tree against direct orders will have no consequences whatsoever. Furthermore, you will also retain full access to your fully equipped gunship just in case you decide to switch sides again. (1) Comments
The fine print of the military code of conduct on alien planets states that there will be zero consequences for disobeying direct orders if said orders involve shooting a tree. Just make sure you don't accidentally break a camera while doing so, or else you will be put into a maximum security prison along with anyone who was within five yards of your unconscious physical body at the time.

Do not accept the woman who speaks your language, educates your children and understands your culture into your society. Instead, offer that honor to the lunkhead stumbling through the forest. (2) Comments
You missed the point entirely. "It is hard to fill a cup which is already full."
They accepted him because he had no idea what he was doing, and thus they could basically start from scratch. That's the whole point. And given their history, it makes sense.
A film director can reinforce the casual disdain with which military leaders view their pitiful enemies by simply having them pose in the cockpit with a cup of coffee while directing a major attack. (0) Comments
One idiot in the bush with a gun is enough for Augustine... with all the predators running around ready to take a bite outta those Avatars, you'd think she'd be a little more appreciative. (0) Comments
When the entire planet is fighting a war against the alien invaders, that cat-like predator will let you ride it like Seabiscuit into a major fight instead of just tearing out your gut and having a last supper. (0) Comments
Just cause the Computers don't work they pack explosives on a skid and push it out of a plane?? 1. Bomb it from space 2. Use an Avatar to Kamikaze a FAST ship into it (why didn't the military have ANY Avatars with them?) 4. THEY ALREADY HAD HOME TREE, WHO CARES ABOUT A COUPLE HUNDRED NATIVES MILES AND MILES AWAY.

If you're a military commander tasked with wiping out a hostile population centre located in a treacherous environment covered in dense foliage and filled with giant tigers, it might be better to do it via orbital bombardment - or even just old school WWII style carpet bombing - than by sending in low flying helicopters and ground troops through the jungle where their equipment won't work.

When you disagree with your commanding officer on an alien planet, the best choice of action is to flee with the tiny box of breathable atmosphere and spend your days babysitting an unconscious Jane Goodall. Friends, family, and foresight are entirely overrated. (0) Comments
If your the military leader and you can ask Jake everything you want for 3 months , like what weapons do they use, etc ... you will look surprised when they shoot arrows at your metal ship when you arrive , also in those weeks of time , you will not come up with a strategy to attack them , where arrows can't kill your troops .
A tank , which na'vi's could NEVER destroy EVER , will not be used here . (0) Comments
