    I felt pretty sick myself by the end of it. I actually have an odd neuro-illogical problem and 3 hours of Imax 3D was not helping.

    yep... there's a non-negligible percentage of the population for whom stereo cinema is not gonna be any kind of fun.

    Yes. I really didnt notice the 3D after about 10 minutes into Avatar, but I did notice the uncomfortable way the glasses were pinching my skull the entire time, along with lens splotches causing shifting focus. The 3D seemed more effective when I saw an all CG movie like Monster vs Aliens, and the image did not seem to suffer from the dimming factor so much.

    did you see avatar in dolby3D?

    those things SUCK.... absorbs light like crazy and it even catches reflections... FROM THE SCREEN!

    realD have a MUUUUUCH better process and lighter, cheap glasses that they frequently give to you to take home if you want. they look like horn rimmed sunglasses.

    my guess is you saw it either in dolby or active shutter. do you remember?

    if you didn't see it in realD, you should. just to compare.

    When I watched Avatar it messed with my head in some parts, and I don't suffer from headaches or issues with flashing imagery etc.

    This was at a RealD cinema too.

    Makes you wonder though, what the legals are on this, I never saw any warnings for those that might go nuts from watching 3D.

    But then, where do you stop? Do you put warnings on films that are too scary? Actually, has there been a case of someone literally being scared to death watching a movie?

    I'm sure there has. But usually these people have pre-existing conditions, and could have just as easily been killed by a balloon popping or a door slamming near them

    I found this gem on wikipedia:
    1989: Ole Bentzen, a Danish audiologist, died of laughter while watching the movie A Fish Called Wanda. His heart rate went between 250-500 beats per minute and eventually succumbed to cardiac arrest.

    I was going to suggest it might not have been laughter, but then I remembered, Jamie Lee Curtis never got her jugs out in that film.

    My concern is that this opens up a can of worms regarding potential lawsuits. But clearly, if there was a pre-existing condition before hand, then it could have happened any time and anywhere. Cameron's not at fault.

    I agree, the key point here is that he had a pre-condition. It's not like the film made a completely healthy man die.

    Maybe it's a gene. Perhaps dyslexia arose as a defence against written material that was too funny, but a visual equivalent hasn't evolved yet.

    I know I get an ill feeling after something totally excites my emotions, but I didn't get that feeling while watching Avatar. Poor guy.
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.
