I'll tell you what's dumb: calling the Na'vi in Avatar "Smurfs". Not only do they look nothing like Smurfs except for being blue, it's such a transparent, lazy way to diss the movie. It's like saying "MicroSloth" or "NutScrape"; it makes you look like you're saying "I hate this thing for some reason so I'm going to
make up a witty insultparrot a supposedly witty insult for it that I heard somewhere!"
And really, they do indeed look nothing like Smurfs. It's like calling a tree a mushroom because they both have trunks and canopies, or calling a flamingo a naked mole rat because they're both pink!
