Death to 3D!

Here's a post from OnSugar blogger Cosmic Rage:

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!

I think Avatar pushed the movie viewing experience to a new level and, like others have said, the use of 3D for a visual story can really enhance the film. Would I want to see a Jane Austen period piece or Schindler's list in 3D? No way. I have a sneaking suspicion even fewer quality dramas and documentaries are going to be made by big studios because they've seen how much money they can make with so-so stories, as long as they're eye catching. It's kind of sad.

I saw Avatar and Alice in Wonderland in 3D. I really didn't like it. Both movies have so much going on visually and to add 3D on top of that can give one a headache.

Avatar was enhanced in 3D because it was largely a visual film. Alice in Wonderland was not enhanced in 3D. The movie was not filmed for it originally and it looked that way too...like it was an afterthought (the 3D element was added due to the success of Avatar).

Thank God there is another sensible person out there! I completely agree; I absolutely detest the gimmick that is 3D. Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't get all googly when things pop out at me (I honestly think 3D appeals only to a child-like emotion of giddiness at things popping out), but I honestly think it is just a con to get people to pay 3 to 5 extra dollars for an already overpriced movie ticket. I have never seen a movie that was actually enhanced by 3D, but maybe that's because I go for a good story rather than cheap tricks...

I haven't seen Avatar, but for the opposite reason: the 3D was tempting, but the story just didn't seem interesting enough. I did see Alice in Wonderland, and while I loved it, I didn't think the 3D added anything special to the movie. But I do agree that Hollywood is abusing 3D. Like you said, it's cool when used correctly, otherwise it just detracts from the plot.

I actually saw Avatar in both 3D and non-3D and I thought the 3D really added to it. I guess I'm lucky that the theater nearest me generally offers the "regular" and 3D versions of movies (when a 3D version exists, of course), so if I feel the 3D isn't worth it, I can still see the movie without forking over the extra cash. As for which movie will be on the top this weekend, I wouldn't be surprised if "How to Train Your Dragon" holds on to the top spot. It's getting amazing reviews and a lot of people haven't seen it yet. (Plus, there's the obvious fact that it's a family film that parents will bring kids along to see, so ticket sales will be higher due to that.)
