a modern, science fiction version of Pocahontas...

...But it's a great movie nontheless!
Person 1: It’s a movie about strangers settling into a “new world”, looking for a rare and valuable mineral. Most settlers don’t care about the well-being of the original inhabitants of the new world and believe they’re all savages. However, one of the settlers, a man, doesn’t agree. He is amazed by the beautiful landscape stretching out in front of him when he arrives and therefore decides to explore it. He meets a beautiful female inhabitant of this world on his way. Even though she mistrusts him at first, they get to know each other better and he finds out that the female inhabitant is a princess (sort of) who’s destined to marry a serious male warrior whom she has no romantic feelings for. She then tells the stranger more about her culture and about how beautiful and important nature is and how it should be respected. They end up falling in love with each other, but the stranger settlers do not agree with their relationship as it will prevent them of accessing to the mineral they came for. The conflict quickly turns into a war between the original inhabitants and the settlers… Guess what movie this is.

Person 2: That’s easy, it’s Pocahontas.

Person 3: No, it’s Avatar!

Person 1: I was thinking about Avatar, but technically, you’re both right!

A long ass movie that was basically Pocahontas played by Halo characters.
"What did you think of Avatar?"

"It was 3 hours of predictable Pocahontas/Halo garbage."

An icon which represents a user in a virtual reality/Internet setting, currently attempted with varying success. The term is adopted from Neal Stephenson; another word used for the same concept is Rudy Rucker's term "tuxedo."
First used from an Internet perspective in 1992 in SNOW CRASH, by Neal Stephenson, in one of those self-fulfilling SF prophecies. Stephenson got the name from the Hindu concept of avatars, which are the personification of various deities or entities.

A 2009 movie by James Cameron that is basically Pocahontas dipped in blue paint and exposed to enough radiation to make them grow 10 feet tall and ride dragon-birds, space llamas, and listen to the "flying jellyfish".
"Hey have you ever seen Pocahontas?"

"oh you mean Avatar, the movie with that giant blue girl who falls in love with a human and worships trees?"

It's James (Titanic) Cameron's Iliad, a fully rendered CGI world with Star Trek geek-level attention to detail (i.e. language) and robustness layered on a halfway decent story of love and existential morality.
Avatar is a movie
