    A mate just linked me the attached, it reads as a long list of pathetic and sad.

    Don't get me wrong I thought the film was great, and will probably go and see it again just for the 3D, but for these fuckers it seems to have supplanted their fragile little reality’s.

    Focus: We have done these in the past, but when have you or someone you know been “over immersed” in a media.

    Alt focus: Poke fun at these sad little fuckers, extra points if you join the forum and tear it up from the inside.

    Twilight it goes almost without saying. The obsession with this movie series and books makes me go a cold limp one. For Fucks Sake man.

    I just think the whole "Our world will never be as wonderful as Pandora" (Oh noes! Movies aren't real!) sentiment is hilarious. Of course it won't, you fucking retard. I wish my world was like the one in Cherry Poppins: an erotic tale of the most caring nanny ever. But it's not gonna happen. How could you ever expect a scantily clad nanny to take the whole chimney sweep rod--with brush? It's depressingly impossible. But, my cure for that depression is blasting one off and going about my day.

    These fools need to get a grip before they earn a one-way ticket into a straight jacket in a padded room.

    This wasn't even a good movie. Don't get me wrong, the technical directing was brilliant, but the plot was fucking inane. If I wanted to make the most typical, unoriginal overused plot format I would use this movie as a template. Let's see, we've got your standard conflicted hero who switches sides. 'Complicated' relationship, doesn't know who to fight for. One man in the tribe hates him for being an outsider, then they become friends.

    At the end, the natives come riding in on animals in a battle that they would haze ZERO chance of winning in real life. Then of course, we have the super duper show down where the bad guy keeps fighting even though his army has lost (just to be evil). Hero kills him up close and personal, marries the bitch and everybody's happy. It's been done 5,000,000 goddamn times.

    What these people who are getting depressed over the movie don't realize is that it would be incredibly boring to live like the Na'vi. What is there to do all day? Dance? Hunt with spears? I'd rather have video games and machine guns. Oh as for the 'symbolism' of how our government is attacking natives to steal their resources on our own planet, Cameron can shove it up his ass.

    Edit: I have to give Cameron props though. He's now directed the two highest grossing movies of all time (not counting for inflation). I don't care much for either of them, but that is impressive.

    I was chatting about this last night while I was reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. JK Rowling does such a good job of bringing this fictional world to life that it makes me wish it was real. But it's not, oh well!

    It's one thing to take an occasional break from reality. It's another to break from reality completely.

    I have known people who have ruined their lives over drugs. I also have a friend who lost his life to a much more dangerous vice, The World of Warcraft. I have never seen someone go from outgoing party animal who gets laid like its his job, to fat unkempt piece of shit hermit so quickly. Even the people I know who are hooked on meth at least had somewhat of a transition period. In short, don't play WOW.

    Why would people want to live on Pandora?

    It is full of huge scary fuck monsters that would love to eat your fat pasty body for a snack.

    If they ever make an online game for this movie, like WoW, I really feel for these people.

    I believe Somethingawful.com once linked to a forum where the users discussed what Anime character they were resurrected from. Yes. Some 15 year old out there thinks he was in Dragon Ball Z in a former life.

    I have a hard time believing that this is happening for the first time. People probably had similar reactions to some books back in the day; the only difference between then and now is that news outlets are willing to report that kind of trite.

    The ironic part is that the dysfunctional assholes who fall in love with the world Avatar world will probably have never even been camping, let alone immersed in the wilderness proper. They would have limited hand eye coordination, no training or practice in weapon use, be overly squeamish and generally be a total loss to any hunter and gatherer society. In short, these fucking idiots are wasting their lives dreaming of a world that never was, never will be and if it were would take pleasure in killing and eating their useless asses.

    I bet if I were to take a dozen of the little shits on a 4 day camping trip more than half would be suffering emotional breakdowns before the Tiger Snakes, Drop Bears and raping even started up.

    I can't be the only one that was I chapped when the humans started losing. All I could think was that they should have surrounded themselves with nerve gas, or even improvised some chlorine. It's not like they weren't already wearing respirators.

    Anyone who finds the real world depressing when compared to Pandora clearly spends too much time here
    [​IMG]

    and too little here

    [​IMG]

    Serious kill-me style depression is one thing, then there's the other kind that people get when they don't do enough things to make their teeth show.

    I was under the impression that the Japanese have been killing themselves left and right over books for many years now.

    Guess that answers your question. We're going to Japan.

    On that note...

    I find that fat guy eating pizza in the second row hilarious. The fat guy who is never without food is something straight out of a cartoon. Everyone else is frowning (and that Asian girl in the front row is raising a sceptical eyebrow), but he's chomping right along. Such courage.

    Guess what? There are sad, lonely individuals* who think that the aliens are sexy.

    I foresee avatar alien porn in the not too distant future. In a world where tentacle rape porn exists, this will be with us soon enough.

    Fucking pathetic.

    *I know about this because a girl I am friends with on facebook joined the group. Finds them sexy. Twenty-five year old virgin she is, too

    This just creates another fucking legion of 35 year old virgins that are no doubt taking turns manning their spot in line for the next sequel. Fandom can be such a pathetic thing sometimes. I'm talking about the dorks that shucked drinking before high scool dances because they had a ninth level Mage and the were damn sure gonna use it.

    This was a MOVIE, assholes. James Cameron designed it just like the futurstic world with roads made of children's skulls like in The Terminator. Have you ever seen the Grand Canyon? Angel Falls? El Capitan? Notre Dame? Your own fucking front lawn? Maybe you wouldn't find "our world" so depressing if the only machine you were raging against didn't have "Maytag" written on the front of it. Go masturbate while crying to dirty Manga cartoons.

    This is nothing new. It's the same guy who camps out for 500 days for the 25th Star Trek film or masturbates with tinfoil so he can pretend he's raping R2D2. They'll pop up for air from one fad just to get sucked into another one.

    Especially if that bitch is in 3D. In any event, you have to think that military advisors in China are reading these forums and recommending an immediate US invasion.

    EDIT: Sorry. I forgot that China doesn't have internet, so please disregard the statement above.

    I know the cure to their depression: The Road. They will either be happy to live in the world they know, or kill themselves after the depression deepens. A win-win really.

    The game was actually released before the movie and tied in with it in such a way that there wasn't much of the actual movie given away.

    Apparently it hasn't done anywhere near as well as the movie did.

    Hey hey hey, cut the shit. You wanna bash on 35 year old virgins and fanboys, fine. But leave D&D out of this. Us dorks were the reason pricks like you got laid in high school. There was nothing better to choose from.

    FOCUS: One knew a kid who got sucked into World of Warcraft. Had a free university education ahead of him, and was a brilliant (or so I thought) guy. Would've made a fortune I reckon. Fast forward two years and he's been kicked out of school, his free ride is shot to shit and he's unemployed, couch-surfing with his laptop and his welfare cheques.
