    3D Movies

    Enough is enough...when is this fad going to pass for crying out loud?

    Re: 3D Movies

    Pretty soon I'd imagine. I'll bet this fad dies out around the same time of these so-called "mp3's" and "HDTV".

    Re: 3D Movies

    I heard some movies like the 3D idea because its impossible to illegally pirate the movies.

    But yeah, still extremely annoying. I'm in the same boat as the OP.

    But they always release them on dvd without it anyway. I dont mind 3d but i hate paying extra for something we didnt ask for or need.

    Yeah but Kramer and Jerry will not be in the audience filming it with a camcorder.

    What I hate about 3d is it is $11 for adults or kids to get in. I am not spending $55 plus the cost of popcorn and pop to see a movie I can buy on blu ray in 4 months for $20.

    Re: 3D Movies

    I don't think the 3d fad is going anywhere anytime soon. They just started selling 3D TV's but the stupid part is the glasses can only be used on one TV.

    Another downfall to the 3D fad is that most of the movies releasing in 3D weren't originally shot with 3D cameras, they were just converted so the effects aren't that good.

    Re: 3D Movies

    I saw Avatar in 3d and I'll probably never watch another 3D movie again. It's just not that cool for the money and I don't like wearing the glasses.

    Re: 3D Movies

    Get used to it, the "fad" won't go away. It'll linger, improve, grow, then eventually becoming the new standard in a much improved and less expensive form w/o the glasses--possibly holographic 3-D TV.

    Re: 3D Movies

    Its not going away. Actually filming movies with 3D cameras (Avatar) will replace the current version of converting 2D to 3D. Plus, 3D TV's are just beginning to take off.

    I'd don't mind it if it's done like Avatar, but it is extremely hard on my eyes. I have no problem with watching a 3D movie every once in a while, but if every movie starts doing it, that will probably be the end of going to theaters for me.

    Re: 3D Movies

    Yeah - 3D isn't going away anytime soon. Sony, Panasonic and Samsung are leading the way in 3D television production - which in order to watch 3D it will cost a single consumer around $4000 (cost of 3D tv, updated HDMI cables, updated AV receivers, 3D compatible blu-ray players, and extra glasses that range from $100-$300 a set). Then there was the E3 videogame show last month where Playstation opened their show with games supporting 3D and Nintendo just unveiled the 3DS - 3D without glasses. Had it just been the film industry behind the 3D craze, it would die out in the next 2-3 years, but now that TV, Satellite (DirecTV), and videogame companies are all behind it this will be the future of how we view our media.

    Just remember what drives any big media push. Porn. If they get on board fully, we are doomed.

    Re: 3D Movies

    At some point I hope they let people just bring in their own glasses and charge the same amount as a regular movie. That's really my only complaint with them.

    3D is here to stay, ESPN is launching a 3d channel on DTV shortly (or it may have already started).
