This is a normal post I fucking hate this tosser, always ruins films before I've seen them
Just go to see the 2d screening ffs, or don't go at all. The 3d was very effective in UP and Coraline, because it was used creatively and not as a dumb gimmick.

The way he's talking you'd think that they are re-mastering every film ever made into 3d and banning 2d.

This is a normal post How about not listening...
between 2pm and 4pm on a Friday afternoon or reading his blog? That would solve your problem, no?

And they are talking about remastering films in 3D e.g. The Matrix and personally I would rather watch in 2D rather than suffer the 30% colour loss. It's a wanky gimmick anyway - I saw Captain Eo at Disney in 1984 and it was just ok then.

This is a normal post I think...
...The way it works is that you colour loss by watching using kermodes method...By only viewing 'one eyes worth' of the picture info using kermode's method, you lose some of the colour information which is distributed between the two halves of the picture that you get when watching in proper 3d.

When i saw 'up', i did notice that the colour was really vibrant, so I'm pretty sure that when viewed properly, the pic is just as brightly coloured.

Also, if you haven't seen any of the current 3d films in the cinemas, then you are in for a shock. The stuff that has been showed in the past is garbage....The current generation is AMAZING!!!! But i still believe it's a novelty because you have to wear the specs...

edit: oh, do u mean there's a colour loss when u convert a 2d film to 3d?

This is a normal post There will be colour loss if you use the old technique...
...of red/green lenses, which will be the only way to have 3d on current televisions. In cinemas they can use circular polarisation, so the colours stay intact.

This is a normal post If you don't mind feeling a bit sea-sick by the constant movement,
the Pulfrich effect works quite well on TV. It was even used in a special episode of Doctor Who!

Edit: Here's a much better demonstration of the effect.

This is a normal post oooh, never heard of the pulfrich effect before...
..i don't have any sunglasses here, but with a bit of practise, if you half shut your left eye, it is possible to fleetingly get an idea of the effect (you are, after all, letting less light into one eye)

This is a normal post the colour loss is down to the tinting on the glasses
you're effectively wearing shades to watch a film.
how much that interfears depends on the lighting in the film, for something like "up" its going to be not so bad as its a pretty brightly coloured film anyway (though i lifted the specs up a few times while watching and the original colouring didn't look like it was unnaurally bright to counter the glasses, it just looked a bit better) for other things that are more muted or naturalistic though its going to be a bigger problem.

This is a normal post I'd had enough of him about 10 years
so why would I actually watch his shows? I have no problem, he's a massive twat so I ignore him.

Nobody is making you watch 3d. So why whine?

This is a normal post "Nobody is making you watch 3d"
That's not a particularly well-informed comment.

You've got whole slews of films coming out in 3d at the moment and directors like Cameron saying they'll never make another 2d film again. They won't all be presented in 2d as well as 3d as there aren't going to be enough screens to show them on. As a film reviewer he's got to see them otherwise he's out of a job.

As for complaining that he's opinionated - he's a film reviewer. If he didn't have an opinion and wasn't able to justify why he held that opinion he'd be a very bad one.

This is a normal post You're right
I can't reasonably expect you to go through the rest of your life without watching another one of Cameron's films. How would you survive? What kind of life would that be?

I never called anyone opinionated. I called him a twat. And he is. A massive smug twat.

This is a normal post At least he's not the only
massive smug twat round here then.
