Anyone see it yet? Some people have gotten really depressed from it and have considered thoughts of suicide.

Yeah that is pretty awkward.
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.

................ Where the &(*^ are you hearing that?

I mean, I can understand it happening, if you're already Fked in the head.. but Not even I was emo aft-- wait.. [censored].. i was.. BUT FOR OTHER REASONS.

I digress. Good movie only makes really messed people up wanna kill themselves. Prolly suicidal because they saw it in 3d, and thought it was real, then saw how crappy our planet looks in compari son to theirs, and wanted to off themselves.
Wow, i can see a cult being formed about this movie now.

Maybe they wanted to kill themselves so they'd never have to hear about how great Avatar is ever again.

I'd want to kill myself if I shelled out £10 plus for a 3D version of a retelling of Pocahontus. Enjoy watching that movie NOW.

^=/fail

BTW, seeing the movie in 3d is BAD. I've now seen it in both flat and 3d, and the 3d was.. Fail in comparison. I do not think it truly did the movie enough justice.
It was fuzzier around the edges, and the bugs popped out more. That was the only difference. There was maybe ONE time that the movie actually took advantage of the 3d.

The animations before the movie where pretty awesome though. I tried to dodge a piece of glass that was flying at my face.. not completely remembering it wasn't really there..

CNN wrote:"I wasn't depressed myself. In fact the movie made me happy ," Baghdassarian said. "But I can understand why it made people depressed. The movie was so beautiful and it showed something we don't have here on Earth. I think people saw we could be living in a completely different world and that caused them to be depressed."
hey, i think i said something like this...

Well, I suppose it's one way to filter out things from the gene pool.
