    3D Movies...Great Or Sucky?

    I'm not sure I care about 3d at all. I though Avatar was an asspain and part of it was the 3d.

    What do you guys think?

    Wasn't all that crazy about Avatar's story but I liked the effects...but you want to talk sucky 3D??

    Alice in Wonderland and Clash of the Titans!

    ...'nuff said


    You want good 3D? Toy Story 3

    I just don't feel vested enough in 3d to buy a 3D HDTV and all the extras.

    I never cared for 3D, the idea is quite pointless

    3D Movies...Great Or Sucky?
    The answer to that is YES.

    It really depends on the movie. It seems 3D works and looks a LOT better with computer generated cartoons than live action. I loved Avatar and though it looked very good in 3D, but the strongest 3D aspects of it were computer generated.

    Cheap sucky gimmick. If Hollywood wanted to put a gimmick back in to theaters they should have bet on Smell O Vision.

    So far, 3D has been irrelevant to my experience of movies. The depth effects haven't really wowed me that much to a point where I think it's a new step forward in cinematography--in fact, I think the ingenuity of lens choice in 2D manipulates depth more expertly and subtly--nor have I seen a movie where I've thought 3D was integral to the experience. And since it's estimated that up to 10% of the population cannot even experience stereoscopic 3D, its appeal and supposed benefits are lost on a lot of people.

    I still believe that if filmmakers want to give audiences an immersive and unforgettable experience, then it will involve a compelling story, characters you care about, and a unique vision rather than the use of stereoscopic glasses.

    EDIT:
    One movie that I was glad to see balk at the trend of 3D-ification was Inception.

    Depends on the film. Avatar looked pretty good, but I heard a lot of people stating that the 3D effects in the Last Airbender (unsurprisingly. It was an M Night Shamylan movie after all.) sucked.

    I saw Avatar in 3D and in 2D (Mom can't do 3D) and I found it much more enjoyable in 3D.

    However, other movies like Clash of the Titans and Alice in Wonderland didn't improve any with the 3D.

    I think my favorite 3D movies are the ones where they use it on a more subtle level. I saw the animated movie Bolt in 3D and was blown away just by the opening shot - a very simple 'push' through the window from the street to see the puppy in the shop. It was very well done.

    In general, I don't think movies benefit that much from the process, though I heard Pirhana was a lot of gimmicky fun (so was Brendan Fraser's Journey to the Center of the Earth a few years back - bad movie but the 3D there was kinda fun in places)
