    I don't understand why people love it so much. What's your thoughts on 3d?

    Interesting, Avatar was a terrible 'Launch Title' for the Real 3D.

    Well, for me it is because the social "thing" that we live, always wanting some new technologies, new stuff, new new new, and some company create something everyone goes for it, just saying i need that thing, and probably they dont need it.

    I don't hate it, but I don't like it.

    Maybe it wasn't a terribly awesome movie in terms of plot and characters but it was gorgeous as fuck and is probably still the best 3D movie I've seen (other ones I've seen in 3D include Tron, The Last Airbender, Clash of the Titans, probably some others I can't think of). It's Space Pocahontas, but it's fucking good looking Space Pocahontas.

    I mean when it's good, it's worth paying the extra cash for (like it was in Avatar and Tron). When it's average or bad, or just didn't feel that great, it's not really worth the extra cash (The Last Airbender which had terrible 3D, and Clash of the Titans was just meh).

    It's definitely gonna be the new direction in film, kinda like how color film was popularized in the late 1930's (with The Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind in particular). Given 10-20 years it'll be a norm and probably a lot better than it is today.

    I hate it.
    Personally it's a waste of money to me and is unnecessary. If I can see a movie in 2d instead of 3d I will every time. It saves me the money and the inevitable headache I manage to get every time I have to wear the glasses.
    I saw Avatar in 3d, although I didn't like it, the 3d did nothing for it. While I thought it was a horrible movie I wasn't even entertained by the 3d.

    I think 3D is either hated or loved.

    Right now, it's really over hyped and companies are trying to sell it as a gimmick when it really shouldn't be made a big deal.

    I find the overhype about it annoying.
    Specially since it's more an enhancement than a different experience like it's claimed to be.

    If you want 3D, watch Spy Kids 3. That shit actually popped out of the screen.

    It's actually pretty cool nowadays with the Real3D technology, and it's a good first step before video games become true virtual reality.

    In terms of the movie, yeah the plot was predictable. But in terms of 3D, it was probably the most beautiful movie I've ever seen, and probably the one with the best 3D effects at that.
