  • Great article about the 3D scam being perpetrated by the studios!!!

    Stop being duped by the 3D scam | TechRepublic

    So what do you all think? A fan of 3D? Think it's really "innovative"?

    Personally, I avoid 3D movies at all costs hoping that someday soon more people will stop paying the extra $$ for a worse movie experience.

    And this is... new? I already found out that the colours in 3D aren't as good way back in 1986 when I saw my first 3D IMAX movie at Expo 86 in Vancouver. The novelty is ok, as long as they give us the option of seeing a movie in 2D as well.

      I like 3D, personally. Yes the colors are less intense and it's overall less sharp, but you're trading that off for 3D ... The mist screens in WoC or F! aren't as clear as traditional projections on flat surfaces either, but it's an experience thing. I certainly don't think it's a scam anymore than charging more for any different experience is.

        Maybe the guy should be slamming the implementation of 3D vs 3D itself.

        I get that the studios wanted something to bring people back to the theatre instead of the couch. That's fine.

        Paying more for it? Ok as an new and unique thing - not ok as an established thing.

        I have zero interest in paying for it for home.
        I have zero interest in someone trying to do it on my 20-odd inch PC monitor.

        If people want to give it away and its here if you want it.. fine. But I really get more tired of all the 3D hating instead of just 'speaking with your pocket book'.

        I would get it if people only started showing 3D with it's negatives... but that's the beauty of the open market. If there is enough demand for non-3D someone will recognize it and capitalize on it... and balance will eventually be returned to the universe

            3D movies officially turn me off. If they aren't showing it in 2d, I won't see it.

                  Here is the thing I would AVOID every 3D movie if I could but Imax is ALWAYS in 3D so I have no choice but to see Potter in anything but 3D.....now for Cars 2, Thor, Captain America and Transformers I want them in 2D really could care less, if you want to go waste your money have at it.
                  Happy Halloween!!!

                    Transformers 3 could be 10D and it wouldn't make it any better.

                      If there was ever a movie for summer 2011 meant to give birth to a 3D experience? It's Transformers 3! For those people who were handicapped when they were kids and couldn't transform the toys back in da day, and needed to know how they transformed in Bay's eyes. What better way to show those inanimate people how... Not only how they function, transform but win a battle in a physical universe of 3D?

                      Transformers 3 was deliberately intended to be filmed in true IMAX 3D experience, just like Avatar was! Bay used not only PACE 3D Cameras but also new Arri Alexa cameras. Camera models that were used for Avatar but newer editions. No lie! As for Cars 2, boring. Who cares about cars going around a ring under a spy mission. The original film only made $461,983,149 world-wide (Cars (2006) - Box Office Mojo). It didn't even break the $300 mark in the U.S. alone! Out of all Pixar films, Cars was the most tedious film, ever! Give me Fast 5 any day! That film should had been in 3D!!!

                      As for Captain America, it's fake 3D, it was "converted." If Chris Evans was fully nude in the film, I would think twice about seeing it in fake-3D =) Same goes for Thor, I hated the comic book anyway.

                      All hats off for...

                      ...what's not to like to see in 3D here? When you see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in 3D, Bay has made an "exclusive" trailer to be attached with that film, and you will forget a film called Avatar =) Hell, James Cameron even visted Bay in post-production to see how well the new Arri Alexa cameras have become since the production of Avatar, and was impressed.

                      PS the Chicago war battle and the crashing building are not the MONEY SHOTS!

                        ^see the difference is Avatar was in a another World, Transformers in on Earth, If i want 3D I walk outside. Plus the way Bay does his action scenes there is already too much on the screen at once I don't need the 3D distracting me.

                        If you want 3D go see it, as long as I don't HAVE to see films in 3D They can stay around and help Thor and Captain America get some extra dough to make more Marvel Movies. I'm just not a fan of 3D after seeing Toy Story 3 in both 2D and then 3D....it added nothing for the price and the colors were more faded, just not my thing
                        Happy Halloween!!!

                          ^^ Do you have some kind of investment in Transformers 3? Or you just like sequels to crappy movies?

                          But seriously, the only movie to "Wow" me on 3D was Avatar ... so much so I got duped into thinking the movie was actually good.

                          When I saw it at home, I actually thought it looked BETTER on Blu-Ray because it wasn't about the spectacle, it was very colorful and vibrant. 3D takes away from this.

                            ^I don't but I'll most likely see it in my local 3 Dollar theater worth that hopefully.

                              I have a lazy eye, so while I can see 3D,my eyes have to work at it.

                              I agree with the article 100% though, and I try to avoid the 3D premium most of the time. The only time I'll submit is when I am with friends, coz I don't want to sound like a freak on the subject.
