"Avatar" Depression

I still haven't seen this movie yet. It seemed easily dismissable at first (reminded me of Fern Gully). But now that it's making all this money, is it SO great that people even want to commit suidice? Here's a news story:

http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/Movies/01/11/avatar.movie.blues/index.html

James Cameron's completely immersive spectacle "Avatar" may have been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora.

On the fan forum site "Avatar Forums," a topic thread entitled "Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible," has received more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans trying to help them cope...*rolleyes*

It is a pretty cool movie. Thought I'd hate it, it being all sci-fi and gunz and stuff, but I was rather impressed.

It was my first 3D film.

I hope to see it this weekend, but first I need to see Terry Gilliam's new movie, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus!

Yes, but less than pre-Stereolab. :)

I can't be bothered. I guess it's some kind of original way of explaining things. the kids love it because it's kind of scary. Make it a bandage.

Spoiler alert

Well, the world is pretty nice but I wouldn't go getting depressed about our world not being Utopia. Moreover, I reckon those Pandorans had a Pyrrhic victory. Many of them died and their home was destroyed. Furthermore, the prospect of the corporation with money, guns and technology coming back seems a given. Finally, they were colonised by stealth as a human with human sensibilities (despite his indoctrination into the tribe) is now their leader and they have now seen the power of guns and electricity and are bound to be tempted to use them.
