Even though 3D is popping up everywhere — from the Jonas Brothers to Monsters vs. Aliens — you have to think: is 3D really that cool? An article from Slate conjectures that it's actually not — even reducing it simply to "It hurts your eyes. Always has, always will."

Thinking about it, it's not the same kind of technological advancement on par with high definition. It's kinda fun, but I also remember how cool I thought the 3D Captain Eo was at Disneyland in the '80s. . . and it's like, we're still jazzed on the same thing?

What do you think? Should filmmakers keep integrating it into movies and "experiences," or is it a novelty that's coming to an end?
