I’ve been reading and hearing about people being depressed when they see Avatar, I can understand why they would feel that way, all their depression is mainly because this movie was in fact too real that they actually believe it, I was one of them, the movie to me was so astonishing that I could not believe that it was made digitally, every grain of dirt, every tree, every leaf, had come out of the extraordinary mind of one man… I truly admire James Cameron, to be able to create a world as lush and beautiful as Pandora.
I was a little bummed when I finished the movie, but not to the point of depression, sure I imagined being in Pandora, being able to live with a race such as the Na’vi, specially to be able to see the forest wonders at night, but this is my reality, not something that will probably happen 200 years in the future… I believe there is a planet such as Pandora, but for us to find it will be like trying to find Atlantis, I was amazed at what people on the avatar forums were saying:
“When I woke up this morning after watching Avatar for the first time yesterday, the world seemed … gray. It was like my whole life, everything I’ve done and worked for, lost its meaning…It just seems so … meaningless. I still don’t really see any reason to keep … doing things at all. I live in a dying world.”

“Ever since I went to see ‘Avatar’ I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na’vi made me want to be one of them. I can’t stop thinking about all the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I got from it.. I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the everything is the same as in ‘Avatar.’ ”
Now this sucks, Avatar is the best movie I have ever seen in my life, if I didn’t understand how trekies and Star wars fans felt like, Avatar is the first movie I’ve ever gone to the movies to see TWICE, the 3D experience was THE best I’ve ever had, in fact I will BUY the DVD when it comes out, and I NEVER buy DVD’s… the last time I bought a DVD was back in 2001, I hope the bad publicity will pass for the movie, after all, it doesn’t deserve it.
