AVATAR tops box office


It’s official!  Avatar quashed Titanic’s stint as world’s top selling movie.  CNN reported “Avatar” is now the highest-grossing movie of all time. James Cameron’s 3-D epic adventure eclipsed worldwide box office sales of the previous top-selling flick, Cameron's “Titanic,” on Monday, making $1.859 billion at the box office compared to “Titanic’s” $1.843 billion.” A difference of $16 million after 6 weeks of showing and still counting.

I love how director James Cameron conveyed the message of respect for life and a hope for a peaceful planet.  It isn’t just a story about a paraplegic marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission who became torn between following his orders and protecting the world he felt is his home.  Its about how nature and the inhabitants co-exist that if it became out of balance, chaos comes in.  it tells us our role in protecting our environment, and it tells us how we are connected with mother nature and that we need each other to survive.
