Avatar: Black Hawk Down meets Pocahontas


"We'll blow a hole in their racial memory so big they won't come back for a hundred years", says Colonel Miles Quaritch (left) in Avatar, James Cameron's sprawling adventure movie.

The gung-ho Quaritch has the entire military-industrial complex at his fingertips but is ultimately vanquished by a computer-generated Pocahontas with an attitude problem. If only he'd offered them partage.

Had he survived, Quaritch would have made an excellent director of an encyclopedic museum.
