Ok, I'm going to risk sounding stupid here, but ARE YOU HIGH?! just about every movie out there on a bluray is under 12gb. 1080p is 1080p and 24/30 fps is 24/30 fps.
The only way it can magically jump from 12 to 50 GB while keeping the same res, fps, and codex, is to make the movie roughly 8.33 HOURS long.
Pretty sure Avatar is not that long. Maybe all the extra crap that not a soul in the world actually watches make it add up to 50GB, but why not just put those on another CD if you are so scared of losing them?
