    Ever since Avatar (2009) and its enormous box office payoff, almost every film is presented in 3D. I’m genuinely curious as to what everyone’s opinion on it is. Does it add to the movie going experience or is the industry just using it to make a few extra bucks?

    I’m not a big fan of 3D films. It’s much more expensive and, in my opinion, it does not add that much excitement to the film. Plus those glasses they give you are uncomfortable and weird….. lol

    Yes! I’m glad someone agreed with me. Maybe that’s why I ddin’t enjoy Avatar as much as everyone else did.

    Interesting thread to start Booga.

    Anyways i think when its used to really enhance the movie going experience then im all for it. I`ll give to examples. I saw Deathly Hallows Part 2 & The Amazing Spidder Man both in 3D and came out of the theatre loving both movies but instantly realizing that I could`ve seen both in 2D and had just as good a time and those damn glasses wouldnt have bothered me throughout. But on the flipside, seeing Hugo & Life of PI in 3D turned out to be an incredible experience. It was magical as corny as that might sound. It REALLY added a whole other level to those films. Good 3D makes you forget that your wearing those awful glasses. Pi & Hugo both did that. And i recently rewatched both at home with family and thought something was off. Within minutes my brother and i both realized “oh yea, no 3D, wow so 3D really is needed for certain movies”.

    I couldn’t care less about 3D. A film can look cinematic without it.

    Some movies like Avatar are perfect for 3d. Others not so much.

    Also, it depends on what kind of 3d. Personally, I find the RealD 3D glasses to be awful, lol.

    Good thread.

    At this point, I have seen enough 3D films that the films really need to have been hailed as bringing something new for me to see it in 3D.  Hugo was one such example and that was a letdown on multiple levels.  If Life of Pi had not leaked so quickly, I might have seen that in 3D.

    The Great Gatsby was probably the most excited that I have ever been about 3D because Baz Luhrmann’s whole style is excess, so if anyone would take advantage of it, it would be him.  But even there, a 2D experience would have been just as enjoyable.

    Avatar remains the only movie that I am glad that I did not see in 2D.

    Hmm I’m kind of hesitant about seeing Life of Pi which I have not seen to this day (or read the book). It’s been lingering in my do-watch/read list for quite a while. 

    I personally don’t get the 3D enhancements (other than the mool). Do you all think it’s worth paying the extra money? There’s another thread about the future of movie making going down due to big budget movies, and it seems like every potentially “bad” movie would add on the 3D just to amp up the ticket prices.
