I agree completely. It's almost like sci-fi has too much science and too little fantasy. Avatar is a wondrous adventure, a remarkable display of human imagination. Something sci-fi has a chronic lack of these days.

The moment I saw that moon, it hit me that this was very inconsistent with ordinary sci-fi films. Ordinarily we would just see some barren, orange planet that bared a striking resemblance to Mars, with a couple of trees and a rather underdeveloped , one dimensional alien race. That's how it usually went. Pandora was different. When the shuttle landed in Hell's Gate, I had this preconceived notion of an unremarkable world. What followed was amazing.
