Brilliant article, thanks for posting it. It reminds me of a review I read in the Los Angeles Times a few days before the movie came out, saying that many Hollywood films of the present day have lost their ability to give a sense of wonder and awe to the audience. Avatar restores that sense of awe for so many of us. I hope other filmmakers are aware of what you wrote about and plan on making their own movies that involve exploring the unknown. That stuff can be truly exciting.

And perhaps the real genius of having a viewer explore Pandora on the screen is that (s)he becomes interested in exploring Earth off the screen.
