Fair enough, but er, again, never made the point something has to be 100% original to be good. None of the movies I love and worship are 100% original. Rest assured none of my own films to date are 100% original nor will any in the future be. Doesn't mean they are not good nor are they bad. Just because one may like science fiction movies in general does not mean one necessarily must like all science fiction movies, either. I have been in the movie industry for some time now, especially in the 3D field and I have a very deep appreciation of the artistry of Avatar. Heck, I was even offered a job on Avatar (I turned it down because the pay was too low). I have friends who worked on it. I am proud of the job they did. But if one doesn't dig the story, doesn't matter much about how good it looks. And if someone thinks it was like The Lion King, well, actually that's something of a compliment because that's a darn good movie. At least, I think so. But there's no accounting for taste, right?
