Discuss: 3D Movies
Karen: With the Star Wars prequels starting to hit the big screen again, this time in 3D, and most of the big summer movies coming out with 3D versions, we thought we'd throw out this opportunity for you to have your say regarding the whole 3D phenomenon. Are you a fan of 3D films? Could you not care less? Have there been some films which you thought did a great job with 3D, while others perhaps were less successful? Karen: I'll start the ball rolling by saying that I've seen films in the old anaglyph format, with the little cardboard red and blue-lensed glasses. It was fun, but pure gimmick. Today's 3D seems to vary wildly. I enjoyed Disney's Tangled in 3D, and I think animated films may fare better in 3D than live action ones. I thought the 3D in Avatar was amazing, although I thought the film itself was incredibly boring. The heavy glasses required are kind of a pain. Honestly, I'd just as soon see a film in 2D. What say you all?
