Umm... IMO, Piranha 3D was pretty close. No actual porn, but lots of naked/half naked females..... oh and they were shooting a "video"

I think the last 3-D movie i watched was in Imax with school ages ago. I didnt much care for, it actually gave me a headache and I felt like i missed parts of it cause it was right up in your face and hard to keep up with everything. I was really cool to think you could reach out your hand and you can touch what you were seeing, but still. I think some movies would be awesome but more so than not I think it is over-kill but then again it is the next big thing.

well 3D movies are in some kind of craze right now- like the iphone 4 and so the cinemas probably thought that not many people would want to see it unless it was in 3D. imo i dont have anything against 3D movies but i wouldnt want to have everything popping up at me every time i watch a move

Recently most of the movie previews I have been seeing have mostly been for 3D movies. Most of the movies I don't think need to be in 3D at all. Some movies are good in 3D, but I think due to recent popularity of movies like Avatar in 3D the movie studios are pushing out way to many movies in 3D that probably shouldn't be. Some movies have even went as far to advertise as in 3D but only had about 15 mins of actual 3D in the movie such as Harry Potter.

Does anyone else think the majority of 3D movies coming out are a bit overkill and should studios continue to focus on making sub par 3D movies? Whats the last good and bad 3D movies you have seen or expecting will be good/bad in 3D?
yeah I agree this 3d thing has gotten too far. I prefer to watch movies in 2D so I dont strain my eyes while wearing those stupid glasses that smear the image

I saw Final Destination 3d with my gf... It was OK... I still would have rather eaten week old tampons, though. Used ones.

A 3D craze seems to happen once about every thirty years (see 1950s and 1980s) and then fades away. I've only seen Avatar in 3D and given my frugal nature it will probably be the only one. However, if the market will bear making the next Twilight, Fred: The Movie, and Sex and the City 3D, then more power to them.

Is 3D dying already?

It’s beginning to look like Hollywood has already squeezed the life out of 3D. As we’ve been predicting for months now, people are starting to seek out 2D options instead. That’s no easy thing these days, when all the best screens in any given movie theater are devoted entirely to showing 3D movies. But it’s happening. Audiences are revolting and The Wrap has proof.

They’ve put together the following chart which illustrates the percentage of a movie’s total revenue which came from 3D screenings. The chart starts with Avatar which earned fully 71% of its revenue from 3D showings and then that percentage declines steadily. When it was released on the 9th of this month, Despicable Me
only made 45% from 3D. Here’s the chart:

The really disturbing thing here, if you’re a Hollywood studio rushing all your future offerings into the 3D format, is that while the percentage of 3D revenue has decreased the number of theaters making it available has steadly increased. If that were put on a separate graph, you’d see a red line running in the opposite direction. So while theater owners ramp up to deliver more 3D screens, audiences are going the other direction and seeking out 2D showings even when in many areas it is now probably easier to see a Toy Story 3 in 3D than it is to find it in 2D.

Worst of all, 3D now occupies all the best screens. So if you’re one of the 40% of people who made it a point to see Toy Story 3 in 2D, you were forced to see it on a smaller screen with an inferior projector. Theater owners are basically forcing people to watch movies in a less than optimal setting, and that’s probably not a great move if you’re hoping for return customers.

So why the revolt? The reasons are obvious and we’ve outlined them in depth here. It ruins the picture by making it dimmer, it makes people sick, they’re overcharging for it… the list goes on. Hollywood’s squeezed all the money it can out of 3D. By the time 2011’s crop of 3D offerings like Green Hornet finally hit theaters, right now the trend seems to indicate that no one will be left who wants to pay to see it.

My guess it that Hollywood hopes this trend is the result of damage done to the market by inferior 3D products like Clash of the Titans. That could be why the most recent Resident Evil: Afterlife trailer makes it a point to advertise itself as “filmed in 3D”, hoping to separate itself from slapdash conversions. But even the best 3D products still suffer from numerous problems and, there’s the ticket prices, which show no sign of going lower. Audiences are tired of paying extra for something which at best really doesn’t make most movies better and at worst may literally make them want to vomit. Keep buying those 2D tickets and maybe we’ll take back the movie theaters.
