3D is nothing more then a marketing gimmick. Its a waste of money and 3/4 of the movie still doesn't have any 3D worthy parts.

Dude, if you are going to resurrect an old thread, be aware that 3-D in the form of stereoviews pre-dated color film by years, and was used in early analog cinema as well, especially in France and Russia.

Indeed.......... Just look outside to see in color!!!

It was interesting seeing the Star Wars episode in 3-D. The understanding of it as a motion picture medium is getting better. There are scenes where the depth is compressed to just a few levels, and others where it is expanded briefly for the "pop" effect. Overall, it is much better than it was a few years ago.

As an aside, there are only about 30 3-D "planes" in an image that can be discerned by the average viewer. People can mentally fill in from as few as 3 or 4 planes to THINK they are seeing full 3-D for brief periods, giving the eyes a chance to rest.

3D makes some movies much better. They also charge too damned much for 3D.

This poll is terrible. Two options?
