Too many 3D movies coming out?
Posted 2/7/11 , edited 2/7/11
they dont have the extra $4 OH NO.......................................


right.

If you don't like 3D then dont watch it.
Regardless hollywood has ramped up production of 3d movies because
simply IT IS the next wave of technology.
It's not going away anytime soon.

And don't say " omg it's a gimmick, they used to do this in the 50s-60s"

Technology has changed since then and we finally are taking the FIRST
steps... and remember, if a movie is shit to begin with, 3D isn't going to fix it.

Making a movie into 3D isnt helping much if not alot of 3D projections are shown. Otherwise it'll just give you an eyesore.

I think 3d movies will eventually become the norm, just as black and white tv was replaced by color.

when DVD came, everything was gonna be all DVD and VHS was being looked at as shit (i never stopped loving VHS, still love it). and then blueray came, now we have 3D that is gonna make DVD and blueray suck. soon everyone needs a big flat screen with surround audio and 3D glasses... it's a pain in the ass

So, 3D began as a gimmick but so did anamorphic widescreen and now it's industry standard. 3D may ascertain this recognition one day but right now it's still ambiguously regarded as "the next wave of technology". I'm not sure if it's acceptance will be likened in the same way we transitioned from black and white to color. The application of 3D, at least in it's current technological expression, is still fairly site specific. There are plenty of movies that probably wouldn't benefit from a 3D treatment considering the cost and continuing skepticism in regards to the results. Eventually, if 3D really catches on, then you'll find it in the home which will, once again, challenge theaters to get people out of their houses.

3D is not a format like dvd or bluray

Good point, still hollywood release of 3d movies have exponentially grown from 2007 to 2011, meaning these hollywood companies see
a growing market in this and have heavily invested into it so I'm pretty confident in saying this so called "gimmick" isn't going away anytime soon. Now as for people getting out of their houses, well ya they're going to if they want to
see the latest hollywood blockbusters, there's simply not enough media right now in my opinion to own a 3Dtv.
3D in no way compares to that of black and white going into color but from a technological stand poin they do rather carry a similar tone.

Now the REAL question beckons

Native 3d vs Converted 3d?

a GOOD conversion = Alice in Wonderland
a BAD conversion = Clash of the Titans

3D movies are a waste. I go to the movies for a plot, not to watch things jump out at me. Everything has to be in 3D now. This has even given George Lucas another excuse to re-re-remake his Star Wars movies. *sigh*

Don't really see the point in having them.

3D movies aren't even that great, sometimes there isn't anything "3D" about them other then some guy reaching out to the auidence which sucks. Ever since "Avatar" came out all the movie industry wants to do is copy them and make money off of crappy flims hoping "3D" will get you.

3D is just a gimmick to suck more money out of bad movies. lion king being an exception. i always try to see the 2d versions.

I like 3D effects, but in order for me to actually like a movie, it's gotta have more than just nice visuals. I hated Avatar, for example.
