# 3D is shite
seen a few things with my kids and it adds little except the potential for headaches

# and a fiver on the ticket price, it adds that, too

# Exactly!
Plus that fact that you miss valuable parts of the movie, dealing with kids that say their eyes are dizzy!

# I'm hoping that it's a passing fad and studio executives will get over it soon
As has been said many times, it's drawing attention to the packaging rather than the content - a bit like reading a good book which every fourth page interrupts the story to talk about the binding method and type of paper used in its construction

It's all Kindle this and iPad that nowadays

I hate 3D too. I just walk around with one eye closed.

Did anyone watch the Hobbit 3D HFR? I just watched the normal 3d and hated it. I wish I went to see the 2D. HFR looks like blokes on a set dressed up daft. Not a magical film.
The crappy grain and motion blur makes it look like cinema. Now that the cinemas are HD that's gone.

# Cinemas have always been HD, in fact the resolution of an old cinema would still be higher than a current 1080p set.

# It's specially frustrating in subtitled films
as you have to look either at the subtitles or at the scene. And the subtitles are oddly placed in the front plan, and makes me dizzy reading it as the cam and characters keep moving around.

# Tintin was OK in 3D, other 3D films I've seen haven't been worth it
If 3D is done properly, it just looks like normal everyday stuff which isn't very exciting.
When it's done over the top it's just unrealistic.

You can't win really.
