After Avatar I thought it was just a passing fad once again. But it seems every movie is now in 3D. I still dislike 3d movies and it pains me that every movie is in 3d now. What do you think? Is it here to stay for good?

I dunno.
Our little local theater used to only ever offer a film in its 3-D form, but for the last Harry Potter, they offered it in 3-D and "regular," and we (quite happily) saw it in the regular.
I don't detest 3-D, but the quality can vary, and I appreciated having a choice about whether or not to view a film in that form.

Every movie that comes out 3D also has a non-3D movie so why do you care? You lose nothing by them having a 3D version. Why would it pain you if other people enjoy it. That's selfish.

How is selfish not to like something? I must have hit a nerve. 3D lover I assume.

I think it is here to stay this time. Seems like it won't be long before all new TVs will be 3D and the cinema quality seems to be getting better at least. 2D will still be around for a long time though.

3D is a passing fad that comes and goes all the time. 3D is okay but it's too much to try and view very often.

I've seen several movies (and other things) in 3D. To be honest, the best movie I ever saw in 3D was The Polar Express. I didn't even care for the movie that much at all, but, Oh My Nutmeg! That film was absolutely made to be seen in 3D on a huge IMAX screen.
