    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.

    One of the main incentives behind the 3D craze was combating illegal downloading of movies. 3D hardware is very expensive and has not yet penetrated home entertainment. The movie industry had high hopes for 3D to be some sort of "pirate-killer", because 3D cannot be pirated effectively. Alas, it seems that people prefer to download 2D rather than pay 15$ or more to watch a release in 3D.

    I've never really liked 3D movie's to be honest, I find it rather gimmicky and I'm sure other feel the same.

    Did anyone ever see the Hubble 3D movie? That looked interesting, and had a lot of "real-life" 3D shooting, and of course, astronomy.

    Apparently it was an april fool's joke, but due to popular demand they made it an actual product.

    Not an april fool joke. In this kind of 3D there are two images which are polarized in a different way. 3D glasses use polarization to show to each eye only one image. If you look a 3D film without glasses, both eyes are going to see both images, that's not to be comfy. This glass has the same polarization for both eyes, so you can see a 3D in 2D, both eyes see only one (the same) image of the two which are projected.

    This presupposes you have money to waste and you really like your friends. Otherwise you could just go to a conventional movie screen. Some people would feel "asocial" if they singled themselves out going to a different projection room, or a different cinema. The solution is simple but brilliant
