Post Splice Vs. Avatar (Spoiler Alert)
Has anyone else noticed an unsettling similarity between these two movies?

I haven't seen Splice. Was it any good? Also, oddly enough, I got a Pocahontas vibe from Avatar...

Splice wasn't like anything I have ever seen before. I don't know if I can say if it is good, but I do recommend it & can promise you will not be bored.

Post Re: Splice Vs. Avatar
Avatar because Splice was just disgusting. First half was good, but the rest was awkward. I didn't like either of them that much though.

Also, Dren can fly and breathe underwater and has no hair, qualities the Na'vi don't share. Just saying. xD

Post Re: Splice Vs. Avatar
The obvious awkwardness of Splice is also apparent in Avatar. Avatar sugar coats it & tells you to feel "happy" in the end. Splice throws it in your face & lets you decide. However, they both bring up the same issue.

I don't recall any (spoiler in small text) rape in Avatar. Plus, the main character wasn't the surrogate father of the na'vi woman.


Can't remember any of their names, sorry. :lol:


I mean, the whole movie seemed like it would have made a good short story, but it just didn't translate to film.
