I don’t like 3D movies, I don’t like the hype, I don’t like effect, I don’t like the way I have to wear glasses and the way it hurts my eyes.
I can often be right against popculture, sometimes it would seem just on principal. I’ve never been a fan of the iPod, I feel there are “better” products out there, but I have come to accept that it is a good product. I just don’t see the same happening with 3D, not for a while
I’ve only watched two movies in 3D, Avatar (which I’ve also watched in normal mode) and then tonight the joy of Jackass 3D. Perhaps not the best set of movies to base my opinions on, but none the less. I do still intend to give 3D one more chance in the form of an entirely animated movie, but for now these are what I base my opinion on.
It’s been tried before, and I won’t deny that every now and then the effect is pretty cool, but I don’t think it warrants the increased ticket price, or the hype. Sure when somethign comes flying towards you out the screen, and you hear someoen shriek, it’s pretty funny, entertaining (which is why we’re there) but I like being able to see a movie. Not just the main character, or what someone wanted me to see in 3D, I want to be able to see the entire picture.
It’s a huge screen they’ve given us, and to force us to focus on one small piece of the screen isn’t ideal. After having watched a 3D movie, my eyes genuinely hurt, and I’m not the only one I’ve heard complain about this.
In any case, I think it’s time that peopel stop trying to make their money by claiming 3D, shaft the concept for another 10 years until someone else has developed a new, hopefully better, system.
