I’m becoming less and less a fan of the new 3D movie flood. The first one I saw was Avatar and I really liked it. I think the next one was “Despicable Me” which was pretty cool too. After that, I don’t remember too many.
What made me start to dislike them was when I took my family to see one and got his with $3/person b/c unfortunately that showing was in 3D.
The last one was “Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” Again, an unfortunate showtime meant 3D. About halfway into the movie I remembered “Oh, yeah, this in 3D.” But then I noticed that I cdn’t tell if anything was coming out at me. I took the glasses off and the picture was practically in focus.
I felt like it was all a gimmick – let’s put in some obligatory ‘coming atcha’ things in the beginning then we’ll just phone it in and rake in $3. And get them to give us the glasses back too! In the name of ‘recycling’!!!
I feel duped.
Now if I was able to bring in my old glasses and avoid the $3, at least then I wdn’t feel cheated. Isn’t that recycling in an even better way?
So these days we avoid 3D.
