Who doesn't like the movie Avatar, with its amazing CGI and semi-awesome story about a planet called Pandora?
Well, the entire plot was copied from a TV show- Dinotopia.
As I was watching the sci-fi channel, I realized that ALMOST EVERY SINGLE PLOT ELEMENT of Avatar came from this show. It has the flying creatures, the "evil dudes taking over an area to build something", the guy from the dark side learning from the natives, the native woman falling in love, the hostile native acting harshly toward this guy... Avatar is just a copy of this on a different planet...
I was... nonplussed.
