Hello badmoviephiles. A few weeks ago, I caught James Cameron's Avatar on HBO (I like to call it Horrible Body Odor
) I was delighted that the makers of this film went the extra step to make the aliens appear less human. However, this movie has one serious reality flaw.
I was told by my brother
Shouldn't you be going by the movie rather than what your brother tells you?
that the planet these aliens were on was ten times the size of Earth. If a planet was ten times as big as Earth (making it a super earth) it would also be 5 to ten times as massive. And when a planet is 5 to ten times as massive, the gravity is 5 to ten times as strong. On a planet with ten times the gravity, a 150 pound man would weight 1500 pounds! Also, the fact these aliens were twice as tall as humans wouldn't be possible because the planet's gravity would severely restrict their growth.
Also, why did the aliens have blue skin? There is no such thing as natural blue pigment. Sure we have blue birds, but their feathers as blue, not their skin.
Although it's an uncommon coloration, there are plenty of animals with blue skin: fish, frogs, the mandrill has a blue nose, and certain species of monkey have blue scrotums (I'll spare you pictures of the last).
It's possible for people to be born with blue skin. (It's called methemoglobinemia
Can't give you a passing grade on this post.
I thought that guy was blue because he ate pieces of silver all the time.
