I don’t have much to say about the biggest non-inflation adjusted movie of all-time (Gone With the Wind, 1939, is the top adjusted) as the brilliant special effects v corny plot argument has been well rehearsed. However ploddingly presented, it’s good to see an anti-colonialist/capitalist message emerge in a blockbuster film but what was most striking, I think, was the portrayal of Pandora as Gaia – James Lovelock’s idea that Earth is a living being. When I was pulling up potatoes, the following day, Pandora was with me: weird!
