...amazing to see how much less the last Harry Potter did in 3-D as opposed to regular.

Gee, ya think "the line" that people are always trying to figure out where to draw.....

...might fall somewhere between $10 for a regular film and $14 or so for the same thing in 3D?

or that it's much nicer to see a film without 3-D. at least that's how it goes for me.

Who was it that first pointed out "My life is in 3-D; I go to the movies to get away from all that..." ?

Mr Frog is blind in one eye and can't see the 3D effect. Drives him crazy when he wants to see a movie and the only version showing is the 3D version.

I've seen two movies in 3D and I had free tickets for both of them. I refuse to pay extra just to wear silly glasses while I watch a film.

The only movie that I really enjoyed in 3D was Avatar. But I enjoyed it just as much in 2D.
I am keen on seeing The Lion King in 3D though. But I'll probably still love it more in 2D.

Some movies are awful in 3D. The best 3D movie I saw as Coraline because 3D was properly used.

indeed it has always been purely a gimmick and hopefully filmmakers will realise this AGAIN and get back to making good films rather than relying on wonky effects to get audiences in

Yeah but there have been movies in which 3D was properly used.

3D is one of two things that stalled to progress of OLED televisions.

The thing about watching 3D, according to a radio discussion I listened to on NPR, is that the human brain generally processes focal points in 3D and leaves the rest of our world in 2D until we need to see depth. When watching a 3D movie, our brain is pushed into processing multiple points of three dimensionality all the time, and it exhausts the brain. That explanation actually jives with the feeling I have after watching one.
