I just watched avatar a few weeks ago and I'm feeling depressed and sad. It's like I want to reach out and be in Pandora. I'd do anything to be in Pandora. I've tried so hard to dream about me being on Pandora but it hasn't worked.
I hate my life and I could go on so much more about it. Well, at least on the internet I am anonymous and no-one can touch me.
No, I don't want to seek professional help. Don't even go down that road.
I'm not trolling. I seriously think I am emotionally attached to this movie. I would do anything to live on pandora and be an avatar. Almost anything.
I dont think english can even explain how i feel
I really understand how some of the people have been feeling about this topic.
After i had seen Avatar for the first time, there was this horrid anticlimax, an emptyness inside me, i felt really upset and down. i just lost interest in everything in my life. I walked out of the theater and burst into tears. I understand what people are saying when they want to give up everything and live on pandora, as a Na'vi. I would do the same thing without a hesitation.
"Well I went into the movie yesterday thinking I was just going to see a sci-fi romp. Little did I know it would change my life forever. I sat in the theater after it was over just stunned, and then I began to cry. I was ripped apart with feelings I had never had before, hate for myself and my species, hate for my capitalistic and worthless society, and a feeling of such despair that I would never be able to know the Na’vi or their superior culture and way of life."
Monolith, I think that for most people (certainly for me anyway), Avatar blues is really not an obsession. I've had obsession before, I know what it's like, and this really isn't one. I really never thought I would have anything like this, but now, I just want Pandora. I'm not obsessed with Avatar itself.

Personally, I thought the film was boring and drawn out. Hell, I even saw it in 3D. Even then, parts were cheesy and I wanted to leave.
The relation it has to our history is so obvious, I feel pity for those who think it's a work of art and original content.
People who have suicidal thoughts over this piece of garbage are pathetic.
If you really think this film is the greatest thing to grace the screen, you played right into what they wanted to happen.

To me, this signals that the world at large, the people, (not the few up in positions of power dictating to the rest of us) WANT such a way of living, like our ancestors once lived---In peace and harmony with each other and their planet.
