Which do you prefer - Avatar or The Little Prince?

I know a lot of people on this forum don't care for the movie Avatar, but really like the book The Little Prince. I'm the opposite, so I wonder if there is a correlation. How do you feel about these works of art?

   I liked the movie Avatar, but I would have difficulty trying to compare the movie with an entirely unrelated book.

 

    I tried to use the book  "The Little Prince"   as reading material for some students,

but there was so much unusual vocabulary.

 

 I have always been searching for written material that can  by  some sort of system that integrates  graduated instruction,  specific vocabulary  by degrees, combined with repetition of vocabulary already learned.

 

   I was able to use  "The Story of Jumping Mouse"   as a lesson  because there is not so much

strange vocabulary in it.

 

   The movies and books will teach in a different   way. The one Movie that I have used for a long time

as a teaching material  is Lionel Bart's   "OLIVER!"    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063385/

I think Avatar more commercial product. Avatar's story looks as Disney's Pocahontas' story. I've watched Avatar only because 3D picture.

And after all, an Avatar is a movie... My father used to (half-jokingly) say about our TV with semi-dead tube: "But it leaves a lot of place for imagination". When they bought new HD LED one, my mother cmplaned seriously next week: 'it leaves too little place for imagination:(". I laughed a lot.

I haven't watched Avatar. I still plan it.

- We were staging The Little Prince with my class when i was at 6 grade of school,
- it had really nice translation of a great translator (the mere fact that it's known in Russia and some proverbs coming form there are sole responsibility of translator: we printed small number of titles in huge number of copies, so she had to take a stand and won a fight to getit printed),
- I read it really early in my childhood, so it is just the part of invetory with which I think
- and yes, it's great wrk of art.

No chanses, it is an uneven fight. If you ask to compare Bible with Quran, you shoold find an atheist frist.
