Well I don't really mean "death," but you can tell that Hollywood is slowly creating all movies as 3D features. Now don't get me wrong, I think 3D is pretty cool, but only when used correctly. Otherwise, I think it is a waste of extra money on a movie ticket.
Prime example would be Avatar. I definitely thought it was a pretty decent flick, but in 3D . . . not really necessary. Not much "jumped" out at you like in The Final Destination, so it didn't feel different from a 2D film. Alice in Wonderland (check out its Movie Friday), however, was awesome in 3D. The magical world that Tim Burton created made the audience feel engulfed in its surroundings and the 3D enhanced the movie's realism.
So do I think Clash of the Titans will be worth seeing in 3D?
To see the rest of the post, just
Maybe not. The preview (shown above) seems to be action-packed! The plot looks straight-forward, so I don't think it needs any "tricks" to sell the movie. I really like a lot of the visual effects with lighting and cinematography. It seems very well-done. So 3D, in my opinion, just feels like another way to make a lot of money. But hey, James Cameron did it and now Avatar is the most profitable movie of all time. I'm sure all other movies will follow, even if 3D is not needed.
Clash of the Titans opens April 2 and next Friday should be an interesting opening weekend. Both Clash of the Titans and Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? hit theaters so I wonder who will rank #1 at the box office. . . Will 3D defeat the TP dynasty? I'll keep you posted!
