The contrast is very similar to the war in the middle east and Africa. Though the story captures our hearts and trails us into a happy ending, the reality has been printed in news papers right before our eyes for decades. Brute force will conquer any indigenous dwelling if there happens to be a mineral deposit of great value under their village. The devastation of Africa, particularly Nigeria and Congo, have been infiltrated with the same means as Pandora. We are all to blame because our computers, cell phones, Ipods and TVs are full of blood metals and minerals. District 9 had an eerie resemblance to how real refugees are handled in Africa as well. We can change them to alien life forms that look like over sized prawns or blue thunder cats, but the hidden message is we are the alien. Our thirst for wealth has crippled not only our personal lives with debt and despair, it has crippled the lives of other nations. We live on the soil of well over 50 million natives who were wiped out so imperialism could form North America. Yes folks this movie is well crafted and you'll surely get your moneys worth. Though when entertainment intertwines so closely with current events, I would hope the immense profit from such a film would help the real casualties. I recently read an article about a child star from Slumdog Millionaire who is still living as the movie depicted, and as of last month was evicted with a bulldozer. Our entertainment is someone else's conflict, how ironic.
