That’s it…I’m done with 3D

Day 7

So I FINALLY saw Avatar in glorious 3D! Now…I’m sure the movie has been discussed to death so I’ll save that for another day. (Although when the lady Smurf turns out to be the chief’s daughter, I was like, “WOW this really IS ‘Blue Pocahontas in Space'”)

But here’s what I do want to say, I’m done with 3D. This is supposedly the best 3D movie ever and yet again, less than half an hour in, I stopped even noticing it was in 3D. Look Hollywood, if you’re not going to making it dramatic I’m not going to bother. I’m not paying a sir charge* just to stop noticing that I’m watching a 3D flick 20 minutes into it. If it’s not Captain EO or Muppet Vision 3D, I don’t have time for it.

In fact if you wanna see Avatar in 3D, let me save you some time, just cross your eyes and look at this:

*”sir charge” is like a surcharge, but for people who have been knighted (like myself) sorry for the confusion.

    The 3D in Avatar is not about things jumping out at the viewer, but rather, bringing the viewer into its world. In that, it is highly successful–you’re supposed to not notice it. But yeah, for most movies, I don’t like paying extra for 3D. Most of the 3D movies coming out now would be just fine as 2D.

    sigh… “sir charge”?

    @Jenn – It’s the gratuity Tim pays out so everyone will call him “Sir”.

    I agree, I stop noticing most movies are in 3-D as well. Its best saved for campy movies like Piranha 3D, it should be a gimmick that goes away..

    AMEN!!! The “3D” isn’t 3D its just another way to make you pay and arm and two legs to see a movie. Arg if it doesn’t pop-out at me it isn’t 3d.. simple!!!

    p.s. just a freindly reminder, don’t forget the chat and ur twin, just in case you run out of ideas

    3D has always sucked, and it still does. Paying an extra $3.50 for glasses you can’t even reuse is just a money making scheme. I am hoping they do away with 3D first then get rid of CGI, and then they can go back to making Indian Jones the right way. You know the next one is going to have even more CGI and be in 3D…

    3D just gives me a headache. I don’t bother with it anymore.

    Avatar kind of sucked by the way. I was totally unimpressed by it.
