Cameron is obviously better than Bay. Avatar was just eye candy with a vapid plot. It was easily Cameron's worst movie. Just the fact that he named the precious metal "unobtainium" shows how terrible the script was.
I think that's one of the most nonsensical arguments I ever hear when it comes to this movie. On the one hand, it's considered a rip off of Dances With Wolves, which is generally considered to have a good plot. The plot progresses sensibly and again, all the proper motivations and emotional ties are there. So if you take the fact that it's derivative out of the equation (considering everything is) is the plot still vapid? The plot was solid and it's one that has been used, and will be used many times over.
Using the fact that unobtanium was used in the movie to somehow illustrate that the whole movie was somehow stupid is equally silly.
That's like saying the entire Marvel Universe is stupid because they have a metal called vibranium, which was also the basis for a sound-based villain.
The fact that comic book fans nitpick the silliest things in this movie, while equally applauding an Avengers cartoon (which I really like) that is recycled plots from the last 40 years, it absolutely hilarious.
