@ Dragi, I dissagree John Carter is the same story. Avatar has beautiful visuals but a lame story. It worked back in the pulp fiction days but stood out as hack writing today.

Sorry, but you overlooked the whole Eywa (Goddess/Mother/World) aspect. Don't forget that John Carter intervenes in conflict among indigenous species; Sully provides Na'vi with alien way to fend off *aliens* - us, by pleading with Eywa to take sides, something which is perfectly normal to us, and unthinkable to them. It is the same story only if looked at in most superficial way.

But then, perhaps Michael Plhillips was right when we wrote in Chicago Tribune that Avatar was "ideological Rorschach blot".

I liked The Day The Earth Stood Still with Michael Rennie as Klaatu. Loved his robot Gort.

I just got a copy of The Lost World (1960/1925) that includes a copy of the 1925 Black/White Silent version. Maybe not the best of all time, but it holds up.
