What's your take on 3D movies? Is it simply a fad that will eventually fade away in a year or so, or is it here to stay?
My issue with 3D movies is that out of all the movies coming out, only a fraction can really justify being shown in such a manner. Animated videos, or movies with an animated feel (Polar Express comes to mind) can kinda get away with it, simply because the nature of those videos is already somewhat surreal. But other movies (Avatar, Resident Evil, etc) seem to be simply jumping on the bandwagon and doing it as a gimmick. The technology for 3D just isn't quite there yet and apart from the random sword tip or sunglasses being thrown toward the camera, there's very little in the way of actual three dimensional feed. The other issue is that the majority of these videos are converted into 3D in post production, meaning it was never filmed with the Fusion 3D system. What I've seen of these "after thought" films is just really poorly executed 3D that you're being conned into paying an extra handful of dollars to view. In my opinion, it's simply not worth it.
Personally, I'd like to see the 3D fad fade back into a niche market until technology can actually catch up to what the film industry is trying to create with the effects. I'll admit it's a neat trick, but with today's technology, it's nothing more than that: A cheap, gimmicky trick.
The entertainment industry is pushing it because they want to curb piracy and get people back into the theatres
the home entertainment companies are pushing it because they want people to keep buying new electronics
so when you have both spectrum's pushing it heavily it's here to stay unless the public just doesn't buy it at all (and i dont see that happening since everything new and "top of the line" has it incorporated)
personally, i've tried out some of the 3D displays for home television... it looks nice but i can't see myself buying like 10 pairs of glasses to use for movie nights (that'd be like what, a few thousand dollars?) nor can i see myself actually watching a lot of movies in that format
PS (are you trying to lure Skinnypupp in here so the newbs can flame him?)
I dunno... After avatar 3D I watched Alice in wonderland. That was my last 3D movie until another avatar level movie comes out. For me 3D is more for the experience, and doesn't make the movie any better. Infact it probably makes it worst, having to wear those stupid goggles and all.
I know I'm saying it now, but I never plan on buying a 3D television either. I know the price will drop eventually, but the whole goggle thing is a pain in the ass. Posted via RS Mobile
Yeah, I forgot that another thread had already been made. I'm not sure if it survived or if it was deep-sixed when it turned into a bit of a flame fest, though.
But yeah, I was watching the RE5 trailer and saw the exclamations throughout the entire thing that it's being filmed in 3D... that's what annoyed me. I'm not against 3D per se, but at this point I'd rather just watch the regular 2D version.
Gotta say, every movie is a gimmick like. Avatar was insane over the top impressive. It was absolutely immersive. That's how 3-D should be like. Not just this cheap eye-popping crap.
Exactly the way I feel about 3D.
Avatar was amazing mostly because of the 3D experience. The story itself, like many others have pointed out, was so simple. My parents don't go to the theatre very often, and I urged them to watch Avatar repeatedly. They actually made it to the theatre once, but my mom forgot her glasses, so they returned home.
Once I found out it wasn't being shown in 3D anymore, I told them not to bother anymore.

3D will fail because of the absolutely horriblely designed glasses
when 20% of my vision is out the side of the glasses still, wtf is the point? it ruins the whole experiance for me, why the hell would they not make the glasses have a lense that completely envelops the eye, not some stupid designer frames that sit 2 inches off your face
i've tried the 3D sets like 6 diff times on numerous sets, i've always come to the same conclusion
why would i pay 3600 for a 42" Panasonic 3D TV when i could get the 42" XBR10 for 2300 or cheaper..
