Audiences experience ‘Avatar’ blues or “Maudlin Fucktards Pine for Fantasy Land”

(CNN) — 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.

On the fan forum site “Avatar Forums,” a topic thread entitled “Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible,” has received more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans trying to help them cope. The topic became so popular last month that forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about the movie.

My review of AVATAR here

Drivel, twattle, prattle, mental defecation. All words that describe this article and the sentiments of the people therein. I am offended by this article’s sheer uselessness and it really makes me worry that the end is near for our society.

Have we really reached a point of uselessness and depression that all of these people “need” to live their lives within this film? Already they have been living their lives increasingly on the computer and in games but now they are hooked on 3D movies? Have been contemplating suicide because they cannot live after seeing it and being separated from it?

WTF?

Nitwits.

Most galling? THIS all over a mediocre movie with a weak plot and derivative musical score.

These are the last days of Rome. We just don’t have enough lions to feed the stupid and useless masses to.
