    So far, I haven't seen any 3D projection that didn't give me a headache and turn my stomach.

    Mustafa,

    It looks like Hollywood technology is moving to India:

    China was one of the first countries to adopt digital

    cinema projection and the number of purely digital cinemas in China is rising (http://www.filmjournal.com/filmjourn...8959c9c5246252 and http://www.variety.com/article/VR111...rfriendly=true)
    India isn't immune to the digital Virus either and has more than 5000 Digital Cinemas (http://www.filmbiz.asia/news/indian-...in-its-own-way)
    The Iran believe it or not is one of the strongholds of classic Moviemaking using Film. I wonder if they use Fuji or Kodak Film

    From what I gather from this article, it is the special-effect-post-processing-animation industry which is gaining ground in Bollywood, the Hollywood-style production side of the industry. No mention of the projection side, the cinema theatres, converting to digital India - and I hope they remain analogue forever.

    I think 3D for movies is the equivalent of quadrophonic sound for hi-fi.

    What he said!
    The films I've enjoyed the most I have done so because of the story, not effects, 3D, surround sound or even colour!

    i feel the worst for the projectionists than anything else ..
    it used to be you went to a movie and there was someone
    who knew what they were doing to get the movie on the screen
    so you could see it ... now like everything else ... it is high-tech
    and less human intervention.
    the coffee industry is the same way ... it used to be when you ordered
    a drink at a specialty coffee shop a person would make it
    now they just push a button and deliver it.

    i've seen some of the 3D movies in the past year ..
    it didn't give me a headache or nausea ... it was just subtle DOF
    which really didn't make the film ( IMHO ) worth the extra $
    to produce or view.

    I would be interested to see a movie in 3D that isn't explosions and car chases and the like.

    Something that is interesting in itself - plot, characters, imagery.

    Something like "The King's Speech", which I found interesting and interesting to look at.

    Just to see whether I would notice the 3D, and whether it might add some subtle benefits that wouldn't obviously occur to me ahead of time.

    Just because technology exists to do something new, doesn't always mean it's necessarily "better". I think we APUG people know this already.

    It would be nice to hear from someone who has just been to see a 3D movie describing the story rather than commenting on how good (or bad) the special effects are. It's a bit like HDR images. If you can tell it's HDR, it has been overdone.

    Mi niece, who is 19 yrs old, has seen Harry Potter in 3D. I asked her what was the film like. She told me very little about the story. On the contrary spent a lot of time describing how poor was image quality and how "unconfortable" is 3D in general.
