Wow! My last post really set the cat amongst the pidgeons!! Not only through the comments, but verbally as well!! Lucky I have broad shoulders!!
Apparently 3D films are not gimmicks!! Having said that, why are the only films made in 3D aimed, quite squarely, at the children's market?
I'm not sure a deep, thoughtful film, or action / thriller would have quite the same impact if it were made in 3D. The audience would be too busy putting on and taking off the 'goggles' at the relevant sequences; and, I think miss much of the film in the process.
So, whilst I am the first to try new technology, and applaud the film-makers for doing something different; until I can sit in the cinema and watch a film, without having to (a) wear special glasses and (b) looking for the on-screen markers to tell me when to do so, then I will watch, and hopefully enjoy, the 2D version.
You're welcome to comment further.
