  • 3D is starting its fade away!

    http://gizmodo.com/5592956/is-3d-alr...yline=true&s=i

    For some reason I find this article of the decline in 3d so satisfying!!! I know I won't pay more to see a 3d movie even in the theaters let alone at home.....I saw one 3d at the theater and it was cool but not worth the money nor did it in anyway add to the story!

    I saw Despicable Me in 3D this weekend, wasn't anything to write home about. They did very little in 3D except the very end of the movie which was cool. Overall, it was a waste of the extra money. I won't pay for 3D movies again, not worth it.

        I've seen a few movies in 3D and some were cool, while others it didn't really add anything. I would say my favorite 3D movie experiences were Avatar and U2 Live in 3D. Other than that, I generally haven't cared. Great picture and sound quality is so much more important to me. I'd pay a little more for that before 3D.

          I think it is still way to soon to say 3D will die out again. It is like a bad rash that keeps coming back.

            Yep, I remember seeing Friday the 13th in 3D way back in the 80's and thought it would not catch on but here we are talking about it.

                I just don't see the need for 3D.. It's got "gee whiz" factor all over it, which is fine and all.. but I'm not terribly excited about it. I purposefully seek out the 2D versions of films when I go see them because I just don't care for 3D.. Too many depth changes when the camera angle changes-- even when the current on-screen subject doesn't change or move. First they're in the foreground, then they're 10 feet back on a different camera angle, then foreground again -- makes for very annoying and constant re-focusing (to me)...

                  I actually sort of like 3D on TVs better than in the theater. However, I just don't see it staying a viable format/option. Wearing those glasses annoys me during movies, most of the time I PREFER 2D cost not a factor. Paying extra for it is just ridiculous. I also can't see movie theaters wanting to keep two versions of each movie going, too.

                    I remember going to see something in 3D at an IMAX about 10 years ago. The IMAX had these big full headed 3D goggles one wore. It actually worked very well. They probably cost $100 each and they had someone at the door making sure they were returned at the end of the movie.

                    Those small little things they give people now just give me eye strain. I think that is the biggest fault of these movies, using cheap plastic glasses. It's the modern equivalent of those cheap white cardboard glasses with the thin film red and green plastic. Those glasses probably killed 3D several times over the past half century too. If Tron in 3D bombs this December, 3D may retreat back to IMAX for a while.
