Please. Enough with the 3D. most of these pathetic movies don't warrant it. The movies are darker and the effects really suck. I wish someone would come out with a study and declare that they are making people go blind, causing cancer, or creating tumors. I think it's the extra 3 bucks the theaters charge to see it and then have buckets outside for you to return the glasses. No deposit system.

But it isn't about the money. I think the movies would be much better without 3D. I'm officially done.

Thank god Star Wars wasn't 3D.

Just another way for the movie industry to try and pull in extra bucks. But if the 3D sucks......

I just saw the remake of Fright Night. Saw one review that really liked it, and they said the 3D was done quite well. If it's ben perfected, you wouldn't know it with this movie. Poor at best.

But, the movie itself was good.Two thumbs up. Maybe a toe to.

3d sucks. The darkness is really irritating.

All the 3D movies I've seen were in a Digital IMAX theater at a museum so the prices are the exact same as non-3D movies they show... and also bright, not dark like what I've heard regarding AMC/Regal. I personally have no problem with the effects for movies that were actually shot in 3D, but find that movies where they turn 2D into 3D is usually really bad.

First movie I saw in 3D was Avatar (on an IMAX screen). It kinda ruined the movie for me because the quality, clarity, and beauty of what I saw cannot be matched by my home theater system.

Star Wars WILL be 3-D. Luca$ is a major promoter of the technology and had that in mind from the beginning.

I believe that 2D will be replaced with 3D in the years to come. The industry is probably making a 3D screen which will not require glasses; thus, eliminating 2D and increasing the price of a ticket. In NYC, a ticket is about $13.00

I am extremely familiar with the technologies available and problems with them. No such screen is available or in the works for a theatre sized audience, unless there is a skunk works out there that I am unaware of. I sincerely doubt there ever will be one because of the technical issues involved. It is possible and practical to have no glasses 3-D for a single viewer, and theoretically possible to have it for two or three viewers.

Ultimately, 3-D and the super-high def stuff is more aimed at the home market and as a way of limiting piracy. 3-D in theatres is more by way of introduction of the concepts.
