En wat vindt de paus van Avatar?

James Camerons sciencefictionspektakel Avatar is hard op weg om de populairste film aller tijden te worden. De meeste recensenten – zelfs de zuurpruimen van de NRC – loven de film, maar er zijn ook tegenstanders. Kritiek komt van een enkele verdwaalde recalcitrante recensent en… de paus. Stephen Colbert brengt in kaart waarom Avatar thuishoort in het rijtje Movies That Are Destroying America.
