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

For those who are contemplating suicide, maybe it's for the best. :facepalm:

I have a relative I can't stand whom I will encourage to see this. Perhaps, comparing this fairytale world to his very own pharmacologically depressing one, he will be driven to suicide. Then our family can retain someone like Gloria Allred to sue James Cameron and his production company and the studio for everything we can extract from their deep pockets excepting the lint.

Anyone who contemplates suicide after watching a movie, is naive at best, and moronic at worst. IT'S A MOVIE FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!:crazy::crazy::crazy:

I figured we would hear from Peta about how the blue things are being discriminated against and have been put into exile... whens the last time you saw a blue guy at a fancy restaurant? Its because they are being racially exiled!

If a blue chick walked into a bar, guys would be falling all over themselves trying to buy her a drink. You'd have the only one.

Apparently, it's getting worse. Those that aren't offing themselves because they don't live in Pandora with the happy blue people are trying to give themselves virtual makeovers to look like them.

Maybe you're one of them... maybe your blueness is a external manipulation of your epidermis so as to camouflage your wounded inner child--which is not blue and does not live in Pandora.

hmmm... sounds like baseless, spurious speculation bordering on libel to me. Is that all you got??? Wow. Just wow.

Myles you better hope it's not me making the decision who to save if you and Buster are hanging from a cliff!

I put off seeing this as long as I could, but finally got pinned to the wall with my eyelids held open a-la-Clockwork Orange and relented.

This film did not make me want to kill myself, just push James Cameron down a flight of stairs, similar to how I felt after he ruined the mystique of the tragedy of the Titanic. The "look" of Avatar, and the amazing things they have done with CGI are truly amazing.

The rest of the film was pretty much rubbish, IMO. Every scientist wore a white hat. Every member of the military wore a black hat, espoused in grand style by the portrayal of their leader--a glaringly obvious homage to roid rage riddled Vince McMahon, except for the soldiers who had the "courage" to rebel against their own. Cliched, tired, and a story you've heard a thousand times before. But then, I'm reviewing this movie so late the damage is already done--unless it becomes a trilogy.

Two and a half stars. Technical and artistic magnificence torpedoed by juvenile political cliches.

the script could've been written by a 10 year old girl. and it probably was. the plot was the equivalent of beating a dead horse. the characters were - as you said - horribly cliche. but the effects were amazing though. i saw it in imax 3-D and it was incredible. i'll never watch it again - unless it comes back to the theaters in imax 3-D - but it was well worth the cost of admission if you ask me. your critique is right on.
