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:

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*

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