I tried to answer your questions as best I could. Let me know if you want me to go on at all.

Is it the same every time, or is it constantly evolving?

For me it isn't the same every time. Is it evolving? I don't know; "evolve" doesn't feel like the right word to me, I guess I just have this idea that to evolve means to progress, and I don't always feel like I'm progressing forward. Case in point: the initial shock of the movie way back in 2009/2010 resulted in me feeling a lot more intuitive, compassionate, and thoughtful. I felt like nothing could anger me anymore and that I saw people. But a couple years later I watched the movie again and that time I felt really bitter and angry while watching the movie. (Angry at the shortsighted humans I mean.) Fortunately that was the only time I really felt angry while watching it, and I didn't like the way I was at all! In any case, my point is that for me it's different every time. Also, certain aspects and characters of the movie might stand out more or less than before to me.

What do I do with the emotion?

Well, I always think on how the emotion reflects my life at the given moment. I guess watching Avatar is like looking into a mirror, and what I see in it are issues in my life that are strongly calling my attention. Sometimes I feel a need to do more to actively help my fellow human beings and make my slice of Earth just a little more tolerable. Sometimes I realize that it's been a long time since I've been in anything close to wilderness and that I should get out. I guess for that time when I felt really angry I had been particularly embittered by the state of the world and probably things in my own personal life. And so on...
