That man should have known that new technologies and innovation often cause overstimulation and should have skipped the movie for medical reasons.
the idiot shouldn't have been watching the movie than if he has that condition
I don't think it was the fact that he watched the movie, more than it was the fact he was watching it in 3-D.
That is fcuked up. Maybe he got a bit too happy with that movie.
Wow, you think that's funny.
Then you add insult to death by calling him an idiot.
This story has a certain ring to it. A person sees a movie and sev--sorry, eleven days later dies? If only I could remember. Oh well (alright, that one was a stretch ).
I see what you did there.
this is why 3-d is bad idea these days and their trying to bring it on tv too imagine the casualties!
Creepy things are happening nowadays.
But he's not the only one there are aroun 10,000 more peoplewanting to suicide because they want to live in Pandora.Google it if you don't believe me.
The 3-D wasn't even that eye-popping. It was a great movie, but paying USD $15.25 to watch it in IMAX 3-D wasn't worth it to me. Even Michael Jackson's Captain EO had better 3-D, and that one came out 25 years ago.
Now those people, I can call idiots.
Why is this news? People die all the time. I'd be surprised if this guy is the only person that's died while watching this movie or as a result of something that happened while watching it. How many tickets has this movie sold worldwide? 250,000,000? Multiply that by the two hours or so that the movie takes up, and you have half a billion man hours spent watching this movie. How could humans spend that much time watching this movie without at least a few of them coincidentally dying?
EDIT: And yes, i made those figures up. I have no idea how many tickets the movie sold or how long it is, and I don't care.
It's grossed USD over $1,483,000,000 worldwide, so if you take the average price of a movie ticket to be somewhere around USD $10 (in my area it's $6.75 matinee, $10.25 regular showing and $15.25 for IMAX), that's over 148,300,000 viewings. At 162 minutes per viewing, it's over 64,866,420,000 man-minutes, or over 400,410,000 man-hours spent watching it. Your estimation is actually not bad!
Not that you care like you said, but just saying.
I won't blame the guy for dying while seeing the movie, but yet, it makes just as little sense to blame the movie FOR his death... Why is this news? A guy sees a movie, gets too excited, happens to be extremely hypertensive, and suffers a stroke. What's hard to figure out? This could happen with ANY action packed or eye popping movie. Honestly, i'd be surprised if this was a rare case.
The dumb and retarded thing is the article of course. The person who is responsible for it clearly doesn't like the movie. What kind of immature jackass blames a movie for making someone so excited that they die from a condition they ALREADY have?! Foolish.
How about a list of things that could potentially cause dead from hypertension-
- exciting theme park rides
- watching ANY movie
- doing nothing
ok...when i heard it all....this is the most craziest situation i ever heard in my life
I thought there was some rumor that The Ring killed a man due to a sudden scare scene and him, being some old fart, died from a heart attack. Any type of stimulus can trigger a heart attack, especially to a man in his condition. You could have just as easily had The Dark Knight kill him, or Star Trek, or even fucking Armored (which was pretty bad).
And people suiciding so they can live in Pandora? How the hell does that work?
well the movie is a killer anyways!
Hehe, me too
I'm afraid I still lol'd at this story though Reminds me of the story about someone who died due to laughing for half an hour because of watching The Goodies...
wow I never thought this could happen, after all I saw avatar and didn't think the 3D was all that. If you'd never watched a 3D film before then I could understand your shock but to me it wasn't much more impressive than watching it in 2D
