The 3-D was the only thing that was cool about this movie.  Without 3-D it's just dreck.

Yea, because Blue-Ray has been around that long.

I can't believe people watch this crap, let alone make it the top movie of all time.

Ugh. I need to move up into the mountains or something.

With the message of the movie being about nature and living in harmony, etc. I find it hypocritical that there will be multiple releases of this movie. Barebones, Special Edition, 3D and more than likely another one after that.

Great stuff, more product, more plastic, more packaging, more trash... more environmental impact.

I bought a Blu Ray drive just for Avatar.  (Well okay I also wanted a lightscribe drive and my DVD drive is incapable of that.)

I just wish I didn't have to wait until November for the version with all the bonus features.  I am NOT buying it more than once, which means I guess I'll just have to rent it whenever I want to see it until November. I think I'll pass on the 3D version, because I don't want to have to buy a new monitor for that.

Bought my copy yesterday. Seemed like a great deal, DVD/Blu-ray combo for the normal Blu-ray price.

They need to start doing things like that more often to help more people transition into Blu-ray in my opinion, but I do think this move is a bit overrated.

I'll pass, I think this is over hyped. Sure the special effects are good, but the story has been re-told so many times. Besides you will never beat the bat in Fern Gully.

Please fix the spam filter it does not work right.

I will wait for the extended version. I am no longer going to buy two copies of movies I like. In the case of Lord of the RIngs they tried to sell us four copies. No way was I going to buy the theatrical version again, even in BR. I will now always wait for the extended version.

This is what disgusts me. They milk it and nobody cares. Same with LoTR Blu-Ray. I'm going to wait.

Only 5 bucks more than the standard DVD, and it included the DVD copy as well.

Exactly.  The sales numbers are good because the Blu version has the added DVD.
