I haven't managed to watch it yet, though I fully intend to, but I've heard a lot about it and read a few essays on it. A lot of people are saying that it's essentially 'liberal white guilt' in movie format, so I'll be watching out for that.
One really funny essay I read was about the Unobtainium. Summarised it was:
'So, the humans are trying to get this mineral that floats when subjected to a strong magnetic field. By the way, this takes place on a world with a strong magnetic field that has floating mountains. ...Wait a minute...."
"Without heroes we are all plain people and don't know how far we can go."
