    They should just do it and get their genes out of the gene pool.
    Natural selection for you.

    Feeling depressed because of a movie.. Dayumn.

    EDIT: I don't want people to commit suicide.
    However, I wouldn't feel sorry if you were suicidal over a clich

    "I think what is happening is that they are focusing on fantasy, something that they can never attain, that place that doesn't exists, instead of looking at the fantasy in real life".

    Is this the reason why psychologist-woman chosen her job? That she could look into other poeple fantasies in real life? :mpoke:

    At first glance, it sounds totally ridiculous..
    But I'm not surprised.. many people find industrialized life dissatisfying, their only means of escape is through fantasy movies and such.. and then back to the cold hard mechanical world they don't agree with and feel powerless to change....

    There is a lot more root cause for people getting depressed than simply from the movie. Even I felt that to some extent.

    It is amazing to me that this article has any credibility whatsoever. This must be what it means to "not see the big picture."

    These people would have been depressed without ever seeing the movie (I speculate at least). They saw the movie, saw a world they could picture themselves in for a couple hours, were happy for those few hours, and then went back to being depressed when it was over because they were yearning for the unobtainable.

    These same people would probably have been saying the same thing when Star Wars first came out, or Harry Potter, or anything of that nature.

    I highly doubt that the movie 'caused' these people depression.

    I don't find this funny at all. This people are going through hard times regardless if its the movie or not...we should not be making fun of this people!!, anyhow whatever the reason might be, depression sucks for anyone, heck I am struggling with it right now, so I am not fond of this.

    Star wars made me want to kick some ass!
    Although I must admit, I felt sadness when I finished the last harry potter book.
    Because it was the end and it would never continue.
    But it lasted for half an hour, and I didn't have suicidal thoughts.
    I was just thinking 'oh, maybe I shouldn't have read it this quick. Fuck.'

    I really feel for these people; however, down the road, when they are feeling better, this experience could be a good thing. If they weren't before, at least they're now aware of something missing from their lives and can go about figuring it out. In retrospect, maybe it will lead some of them to turn their living experiences up a notch and that could be a great thing.

    I'm starting to suspect that James Cameron is the Anti-Christ. I have no reason or evidence, but I like postulating that everyone who annoys me is probably an agent of Satan.

    When I was a surly teenager and saw Titanic there was a girl who was weeping so heavily that she had to be carried out, sobbing "Leo" hysterically. I rolled my eyes and said really loudly "What an idiot, some people make me ashamed to be a teenager. Her friends scowled at me. They ended up calling the paramedics because she worked herself into an asthma attack. I felt minorly bad, but seriously... it was Titanic, how did you think it was going to end?

    Topic: People are strange and the world kind of sucks. Weirdness is bound to happen. It's a bit sad really.

    This sounded a little silly to me at first, but I thought about this a little bit....

    I actually haven't seen the movie yet and chances are I may actually become depressed after watching it. I think of reality as generally depressing anyway. Matter of fact, I actually get pretty depressed at times. I feel alone, and just sick of reality in general. Sometimes I just wish that there was somewhere I could escape to where there aren't any problems.

    We all wish that we could escape to some sort of utopia or paradise, a "perfect", peaceful world where you don't ever have to worry about anything. Then you turn on the news and see all the things that are wrong with the world. Swine Flu, Wars, global warming, the economic recession, and the thought that things may actually get worse in the coming years.

    While being depressed over a movie doesn't particularly make sense to me, the thought that the only world you will ever live in could have been a much better place than it is, can be very sad. I can understand how spending a few hours seeing a beautiful utopia and then having to return to reality can make a person a little depressed.
