No, Thanks.  

I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

What's way more annoying than a bad movie being incredibly popular? Smart people complaining about how bad that obviously terrible movie is and how it shouldn't be as popular as it is.

Here was my Avatar experience ~

Step 1 : Saw the poster and knew I would hate it if I were to watch it.
Step 2 : Read a description of the plot and had my suspicions confirmed.
Step 3 : Did not buy a ticket to see the movie, and patted myself on the back for my wise judgment.
Step 4 : Got to hear any number of seemingly intelligent people complain about how bad it was.

Now I'm more annoyed at the complainers than the movie because those people should be smart enough to suss out what's lame from that which is worth watching. Just as nature has provided us with certain visual indicators to help us easily identify people with down's syndrome, so has it provided us with indicators to help us figure which films are retarded without having to actually sit through them.

Plus, when somebody shits on a movie by extension they're shitting on all the people who liked it, which is impolite at least. If I don't see the movie, I can get away with shitting on it because I can say simply that I didn't think I'd like it so I didn't go see it. Which is nicer than crapping on everyone and everything. And if I never actually see the movie, if someone comes up and tells me they liked Avatar I can't judge them because I haven't seen the movie myself, and therefore I'll never know if the person is an idiot because as far as I know the movie might actually be great. BUT I'LL NEVER KNOW.
