And it is about damn time it went away again. 3D movies are a gimmick to charge more money for rapidly spit out drivel. I’m one of those before mentioned people who has eye problems (VMPD to be exact) which causes 3D to both not work well for me and makes me sick. Not to mention that after watching several of the films in 2D, they suck pretty badly.
It's sad because when it's done properly, it's absolutely brilliant. Avatar aside, I saw Coraline both in 2D and 3D. In 2D is was a great film, but in 3D, it was as if the puppets were literally there in front of me, and made the movie so much better by adding to the atmosphere. If Hollywood continued to deliver high quality 3D like that, it would stay afloat, but as Cameron said, the shoddy 2.5D movies, or those that simply stick effects in your face for shock factor are ruining it for the studios and directors that really put in some effort.
LOL i loved the movie "Incredible Me"!!!... :D
Would the so so called new Avatar bring the status up again? 🙂 Can't believe they add a few new scenes and release it again. But many people like me don't see the point in paying more to see it in 3D, i don't see much of a difference as its still a movie and as long as you enjoy, it would still be a great movie!
i've never really seen the point of 3D. yes it looks cool, and can add realism to a movie, but i am one of those people who goes to a movie for the story. realism, and even picture quality are a far second place to storytelling for me. maybe its because i'm one of the shrinking number of people who have the attention span to read a book...
Inspector? Are you talking about the new female fragrance from Escada?
If that trailer was in 3D, it would really look like she was going up and grabbing a pair of...
I liked Despicable Me as well. The short format of most animated movies fits perfectly for 3D, it is just short enough to not give you a headache. I am just wondering how long it will take them to put some kinda screen in front of the screen to negate those glasses.
Hollywood knows its a gimmick, and most understand to use it when it helps to progress the story. Robert Zemeckis understands this, that is why he puts subtle hints in his movies. In BTTF, remember that one in three of Biffs gang wore his 3D glasses to show the craze from the fiddys:P
This is why I have argued the point before that this is something that we as the consumers should not be paying for! If they feel they need this to illustrate the story then include it! I just cant wait to see how they are going to rape people with the roll out of Avatar on Blu-Ray? I am sure they are going to make people go buy a new format TV, New format BR player& glasses, plus the 100dollar disc itself:P
Zemeckis had a good way of pointing out the irony in life! Much "like stupid is as stupid does", The one that really rings true is "Life is like a box of chocholates....you never know what one will be made of puppy poop:P
I usually take the opportunity to see a movie in 3d when available. From my experience, its hit or miss. I also saw Coraline in 3d and it was awesome. Avatar was pretty good, but I didn't really like the storyline. I could not tell that Toy Story was 3d at all, however I did not see it in 2d. Most of the movies that come out 3d are ones that I would not go see anyway, like Piranha. I see more of a continuing market in 3d gaming, but I will continue to spend the extra $4 to take advantage of the extra camera/efforts used in producing a 3d film.
@animatortom: Yes i am talking about the new fragrance O.o lol... I liked the way they say Escada 😃.
