Default Avatar is always a part of us

I just watched Avatar again tonight... so much feeling, I was crying most of the way through.
I haven't been able to watch it for the last month and a half or so, as there was always something I needed to do, it it was too late, or I was too tired or emotional, or the time just didn't feel right. I just got another chance to watch it again.
It was perfect.
Avatar is such a beautiful film, and it showed me how things could be, it gave me a completely new perspective on life. None of that has changes. It's as perfect as ever, as emotional as it was that first time I watched it, over a year ago. All that time ago, I was so different. I wasn't expecting any film to completely give me a perspective. I didn't have any real reason to do anything, I was just going through life without ever even realising the problem. Avatar is a single thing worth fighting for. It still is.
Every day, I think of Pandora, and I wish so much I was Na'vi... Every day I think of ToS, the one place on Earth I feel at home, around the people I care about. The place where people See, in the middle of all these skypeople. I was somehow born as the wrong person and I know that, whether or not Pandora is out there somewhere, it's where I belong, and I know that for so many people here, they are the same.
Never lose sight of that

It's so true! I experienced nearly the same, while I was watching Avatar last weekend. It was the first time I have seen Avatar in the last six months and I was really captivated. Recently I bought the Avatar Soundtrack and played it on a hifi system very loud. Especially 'You don't dream in cryo' gave me goosebumps

It's nice to wait inbetween viewings I find. For me at least cause then when I watch I really get into it and emotional.

Still, nothing will ever compare to the feeling after the first viewing.

@ HNM: What you wrote is entirely how I feel when I watch it and how it makes me feel too. AVATAR has honestly changed me forever and my way of thinking on life. Who ever thought a movie would make such a huge impact on my own personal life and well being. I usually don't like to get to involved in things as my nature is to be a bit of a skeptic, a little bit of a pessimist at times, and to always question everything. So for me to be hit so hard by a movie and everything with it was completely unexpected for me, I mean REALLY unexpected. LOL

I also like what you said about being able to "SEE" amongst the skypeople. That is usually my response when it comes to the "haters", I was so fortunate to have been able to "see" and to "get it" where most individuals never did. I am so glad I was able to get the connection, emotion and I am so blessed to have met so many others who feel the same as I do and I might add have a lot in common with besides Avatar. I love my Avatar family and I always will. Thank you for reading my thoughts.

I have to watch it all the way through soon but for the first time in a while I've dreamt of Pandora and how we can achieve the earth equivalent.
I hear you Human No More, I'm sure all of us are so grateful to be able to "see" despite all the chaos around us. I love the little family we have here, that I come back to every single day.

Hnm, that was the best way it could be told, and I completly agree. I am a late comer into the family here, but I do feel welcome, and hope to be a part of it for a long time. I wish the best to you(HNM) and all of TOS family.

I can totally relate to what you said HNM, and we definitely have a "home" here for people that feel the same way. I feel much more "in tune" with the people here, than with anyone I deal with in my daily life.


I haven't watched the movie for a month...been saving it for spring break, so in a few days I hope I have an experience like yours!

It was perfect.
That's pretty much what happened to me about a week ago.. I hadn't watched Avatar in aaages, almost 2 months, but then last week i finally had time to sit down and experience it again. It really caught me off guard - i was just so emotional throughout the whole thing, crying in almost every scene. Maybe it was just because i hadn't watched it in so long, but it was my most emotional viewing of it so far. Since watching Avatar, i had been trying to live a little more eco-friendly, and i guess i let that slip a bit. Watching Avatar last week forced me to wake up again, to see how i should be trying to make a difference.

As misstammie said, i'm just so glad to be lucky enough to have this experience

You being late to find us doesn't make it any less relevant for you

Well said... especially about the message. I've always tried hard since Avatar, but last night, when I was watching, I ended up getting so angry at those skypeople at some points... It makes me wish I could do more

I havn't watched it in months, but i need to do it again sometime! Just watching the trailer brings back memories of last year like nothing else!

Today, i had the day off, so i decided to go to the cinema, to see if there were any good movies showing early in the day, but alas, nothing interested me! It made me remember how i could ALWAYS go to the movies to see Avatar, how it was always an alternative. Really makes me miss it!

I had the same experience the other day. I hadn't seen the film in a few weeks at the least, and I was going through Avatar withdrawal. I decided to watch the CE, and I was completely blown away. It was almost a numb, captivating, and yearning feeling coming at me all at once; simply amazing.

@MissTammie: I came here in search of people who saw and felt as I did too, and I certainly found a wealth of familiarity here.

Avatar definitely is my drug of choice.

I'm glad you had a great experience HNM, reading threads like these reminds me (not that I forgot) what Avatar gave me and what brought me here. Such a life changing event Avatar has been for many of us. Every few months when I find a perfect time to watch Avatar I feel so much better, so much more alive, and so full of life.

Well said. In this life, where people forget how to live, Avatar lets us live through another reality
