I don’t want to sound like a cry baby but I am really getting sick of being forced to watch almost every single movie in 3D. Every single one of those movies I watched barely contained any 3D scenes. Although I have to admit the 3D scenary where things were floating in Pandora in Avatar and Kraken scene from Clash of The Titans were impressive. Those barely gave me a few minutes of joy and absolutely not worth paying the premium of a few dollars.
Not to mention that I wear glasses to begin with and I constantly have to adjust my 3D pair because it keeps slipping down. Then again, that’s just a small problem compare to the amount of real 3D experience you get to enjoy in these so called 3D movies.
Then you have these 3D ready TVs, seriously I wonder how many people have actually bought them. I for one, will not buy one unless they become so main stream like HD TVs which means they will be relatively affordable. As a matter of fact, I prefer to wait until they come out with 3D ready TVs that do not require wearing 3D glasses. I’m pretty sure they will since Nintendo 3DS can do it, though not the greatest but its a start.
So what do I think of all this 3D hype? Nothing but money gouging in an attempt to force people to pay extra for something that’s not noticeable. And if they decide to go full 3D only for every movie out there, I can bet that will be a LOT more people willing to “download” the movies instead of watching them in person. In the end, its your lost movie directors not us consumers.
And I’m sure you know what I mean by “download”.
