BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE
I'd describe my feelings towards 3D in feature film as a big on the negative side of neutral. While I don't think I will ever want to see a 3D movie where I'd actually like to invest myself in the characters and plot for the first time, I'm all in favor of 3D rereleases. There's something magical about seeing a movie on a big screen in a dark theater full of other folks who love it, and I feel like 3D is a small price to pay, even it means I have to wear two sets of glasses. Case in point: I haven't seen the original Star Wars
on a big screen since I was eleven. And there are even some cases, like Tron: Legacy
, where I feel that 3D enhanced (even if slightly) my experience of an otherwise (okay, perhaps "even still") forgettable movie.
But my sympathy for 3D ends at it being applied to movies against the wishes of the director, and particularly with 3D post conversion, the laziest way of making 3D movies.
