    I only saw the regular version but still want to see the 3D version. Am I staring death in the face by doing so?

    How did they even find this out? Did his family go to the newspapers and scream that Avatar Killed him?

    I can sympathize. I about died laughing watching that movie and still almost do every time I watch it again. One of these days...

    To be honest there is something quite fishy about this story...
    This was run on a chinese newspaper, and there is no way to verify the source.

    Also, diint China told FOX that the 3D version of Avatar had to be pulled becuase of a Confucius film?

    And wouldnt it be in their interest to create a "health scare" with the 3D version of the film?

    I actually get seriously bad head aches from 3D films. When I was watching Coraline in 3D, I got the worst headache I've ever had, and nothing I could do would stop it. It finally went away the next day after lots of sleep, ibuprofen and alcohol.

    I wont be watching another 3D movie that's for sure.


    Anyway I can see this actually happening to someone, but, in this case I suppose without verifiable evidence... We'll never know.


    Jin, the title of this thread is effing hilarious. I laughed when I saw it and then read the article, lol.

    Not directly related, but this reminded me of a great scene in Ken Kesey's Sometimes a Great Notion where a character dies laughing.

    James Cameron, a director so mean he once killed a man who watched his movie. With his movie.

    Yup. Up was my first. Avatar will likely be my last.

    it was kinda funny, in a way...
    strange how different people react, i sat darn close to the screen, and the screen was HUGE, saw it in realD too,... but nope, sometimes i had to remind myself "erik, you ARE watching 3D"

    i wish the effect was greater. somehow.

    What funny is how most people aren't asking question about this new technology before they strap it on and ride it out for a couple hours.

    I, myself, and lots of my friends have written it off due to headaches, upset stomachs, and more...

    Doesn't matter which type of 3D it was either...

    Fact is that it wasn't fully tested before being thrown at the public, but oh well... jokes and comments about the weak abound.

    Same thing happens with new drugs until you hear about how it's got some long term affects and you've been on it. :P
