I hope the 'message' gets more nuanced.  Until I hear otherwise, I don't plan to see the sequels.

*nods*  Yeah.  I love that you linked to TV Tropes; I was going to do that too, specifically for "Mighty Whitey" -- a toxic combo of "indigenous people are just so spiiiiiiiiiritual and iiiiiiiiiiinnocent," with "White Guy does all their Noble Savage Cultural Stuff BETTER than the Noble Savages, because he's a White Guy."  Creepy, colonialist bullshit wrapped up in a pretty bow of "respect" -- but it ain't respect if it always stays firmly within that nice little white privilege box.

Saw it the other day.  Quite pretty.  Rolled my eyes at all the 'noble savage' stuff.  Wondered how the spinning glowing lizards survived in that ecology.

By end of the film, was decidedly hoping that the humans would wipe out the blue people.

Finally saw it or about 50% of it (the plot didn't hold my attention) a few days ago and would agree.

I'll try to watch for the effects later but the cringes at the neon signs pointing out how dumb the human guy is because humans are stupid wastes of space who fight too much kills the horse early.

I'm gonna tell my son to join a circus so that death is cheap
And games are just another way of life
And I'm gonna tell my son to be a prophet of mistakes
Because for every truth there are half a million lies
And I'm gonna lock my son up in a tower
Till he learns to let his hair down far enough to climb outside.
