The Third Dimension

I won’t try to sway anyone who is not convinced by the  current format of 3D cinema that we have these days but it really has come a long way since the days of cardboard glasses with one blue and one red lens.

Personally I am a fan of the the new 3D technology as I believe that it is the future of cinema bringing a more engaged and immersed cinematic experience. Though at the same time I believe that there should be some guidelines as to what and what shouldn’t be made as 3D movies and how they should go about doing it.

I do support converting old movies into 3D, especially not cartoon animations as after seeing the trailer for the converted Lion King I felt that it just wasn’t as smooth and convincing as computer animated movies or live-action films that are either shot in or converted to 3D.

Also it produces a much better experience if the movie is actually shot in 3D rather than simply converted after the movie is filmed.

I know this across as a bit of a 3D stan post, then again I suppose that is true in part. My collection of 3D glasses from all the movies that I’ve been to see can vouch for that, maybe if I get the time I’ll take a picture of them.

I suppose all that’s left to do now is to list all the movies that I’ve seen in 3D in the order that I watched them, here goes nothing:

  • Beowulf
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth
  • Bolt
  • Coraline
  • Monsters vs. Aliens
  • The Final Destination
  • Avatar
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Weird I thought I had seen more. Anyway I will continue to see movies in 3D, be it RealD or Digital 3D.

    Welcome back.

    For me, 3D hasn’t convinced me entirely. Sometimes it feels like a gimmick, just to ask more money.

    Oh in some cases it most definitely is, “Journey to the Center of the Earth” in my opinion was made solely to use 3D, stuff jumping at you every five minutes.
