I just want to point out that Avatar stole from Last Samurai....which stole from Dances with Wolves...which stole from Little Big Man...which stole from Lawrence of Arabia

Avatar also is very similar to Pocahontas
In a manner of speaking I sorta think Gran Tourino is the best/most original going native type film I ever saw. For one thing not only did Clint go native but the kid did too. Maybe you just call that friendship but the kid in particular could be seen really going native. For example, in terms of how he spoke in the interview. Very interesting stuff. But the way Clint was with the grandma is pretty funny too

This is a good point.

It's certainly one of the best and most original movies about race relations and also the passage of time and generations.  Really great movie.

4. Finding Neverland
5. Reign Over Me
6. Clue

Big Lebowski

Then the ten "favorite" movies
1. Home Alone
2. Sandlot
3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Pixar in one category; Up, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, Wall E, Toy Story 1,2,3,
Blazzing Saddles
Disney Cartoons; Lion King, 101 Dalmations, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Pinnochio
Mrs. Doubtfire
