    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

Also, the effect at it's greatest wasn't anything that wowed me, it just didn't add anything worthwhile to the movie. The 3D tv sets seem the same, however it looks like the latest tech does not require glasses so it will be interesting to see how that looks.

    I hate 3D with the burning passion of a thousand suns, so when my wife and I watched Despicable Me, we watched it in 2D. Even though it was 2D, I kept having strange gut feelings about the direction until I realized that those strange moments were obviously intended as 3D gimmicks. Very annoying. I anticipate that 3D will die again, leaving a batch of movies with bizarre cinematography in its wake.
    f/22 and be there.

    What an amazingly prescient observation that was seven months ago...

    "There has been an alarming dip in 3D grosses at the domestic box office this summer. The trouble started with Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." For the first time, a majority of the audience opted to see a studio 3D picture in 2D. It happened again a week later with DreamWorks Animation's 'Kung Fu Panda 2.'"

    [...]

    "It's [3D technology] not nearly as big a win as it should be, and it's certainly not the win it was headed toward being, and that's really heartbreaking to me because we have managed to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory as only Hollywood can do."

    Yes, folks! It's a porno movie in 3-D! IMAX 3-D, no less!
    Bouncing boobs and male members, 20 feet tall and floating just inches in front of your face!

    It's a must see!




    If I'm not mistaken, IMAX 3D is a film process.

    I reported recently that one of the production machines at EK has shut down. This machine was used primarily in the production of Motion Picture products. So, whatever is said, the effect lingers in production.

    No disagreement with that.

    I was just commenting on BetterSense's prodigious powers of prognostication. And I loved his phrase, "I hate 3D with the burning passion of a thousand suns," remembering it when I read the article last night on the recent market demise of 3D motion pictures. Several others had also expressed a similar sentiment - albeit not quite so poetically.

    That's all...

    And my point was that even with the rapid decline in 3D, the traditional MP market has not rebounded significantly. The economy has a lot to do with it though.
