Dr Arthur Lewin is analyzing the films Avatar, the Matrix,and IRobot Didn’t you like the movie, "The Matrix?" It seems everyone did. But why? Was it because of the theme that for all we know, life could be a lot different than it seems? Or was it because it had so many Black and Latino actors? Nonetheless, were there hidden, subliminal messages in the picture specifically aimed at us? Also, Pandora refers to Pandora’s box, the box in Greek mythology, that was opened by a woman named Pandora, that forever changed the world. The film Avatar is intended to forever change the way in which we watch movies, and TV, that is, the way we experience the world through the mass media. Who exactly are the Na’vi, the natives? Let's see. They are tall and they have color in their skin. They are tall people of color who are great basketball players. Yes, basketball players. Recall when Jake first enters his new body and steps out into the world, what is the first thing he sees? Two Na’vi playing basketball, a man and a woman. And the woman actually says to the man, “You ain’t got no stuff.” Could the director make it any clearer? The Na’vi are Black people. This information will enlighten you.
