It almost made me commit suicide since it sucked so badly.

Killing yourself over a mediocre blockbuster movie? That's fucking crazy. It's not like they had any good reasons to jump, or let go of the rope, or slit their throat, or whatever before, but I mean come on! Fucking pathetic, seriously, they had a thread on this? Post-Avatar depression? Bullshit.

Anyone who committed suicide because of this is just doing the world a favor.

The hate against this movie is ridiculous. As is committing suicide over it.

Yes; removing stupidity from our species is doing the world a favor. Ever heard of the Darwin Awards? They celebrate people who die of their own extremely stupid decisions, thus reducing the number of stupid people available to reproduce. Frankly, if you think a made up planet with giant blue people running all over it is more important to the real world than your own life...you've made yourself correct.


The simple fact is that some people will never be happy, no matter how good their lives are.

I found Avatar to be very offensive to my imagination. No symbolism, no metaphor, little substance. For almost 3 hours, no room to wonder, and all of your questions will be answered. It was predictable, and a lot of the characters were flat, one dimensional. It's a movie for children. Good stories for adults use story mechanisms that engage the brain. Avatar was boring.

Related.

Everyone loves the part about hot barely-clothed women running around and communing with nature. Nobody really thinks about the bit where you and your family get gored to death by hungry razor beasts.

Awesome. You're one of those guys who doesn't like, or at least care, if things are explained. (Spoilers ahead.) I do think there is symbolism, like how the Na'vi are like natives and they're being overrun by humans with technological advances. There's also probably an environmental metaphor with the danger of destroying the big trees. I don't know if there are any others, but I did notice those.

I suppose you can wonder about how life was on that planet before the humans arrived and why those two bad guys, who run the operation, are the way they are, and don't care about the Na'vi and their trees of energy. I don't know if Cameron intended those things to be ambiguous, but in a way, they are.

It was predictable, and a lot of the characters were flat, one dimensional.

I do agree with that, more or less. Still, I think the acting and script are well-done. The marine is one character to care about. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the first two Alien films, for instance, have little to no character development?

It's a movie for children. Good stories for adults use story mechanisms that engage the brain. Avatar was boring.

That probably depends on your level of intelligence. I love films that leave things open, but even straightforward films can be enjoyable. Films that have a good mixture of both are the best, like The Dark Knight. I did like Avatar, but it's no masterpiece.

Considering the entire thing was a ham-fisted metaphor for Earth-based conservationism, that statement makes little sense.

Haha. That's genius. Honestly, who can enjoy the movie that much? I saw it and enjoyed it, and the scenery looked nice (especially with the 3D glasses), but to be depressed and have suicidal thoughts after seeing that is just madness.

Did you know that the only way mountains would float is by electromagnetic repulsion, and a magnetic field strong enough to hold up all those rocks would rip the hemoglobin right out of your blood?

I wonder what that would look like?

Ouch. It would probably look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Total Recall when he smashes his visor in open space and his head explodes.
