welcome to the next generation, folks.
i'm already loving this new decade
Same here....I was skeptical but no longer.
Even the trailers before Avatar looked great in 3D.
That being said, I firmly believe that for it to be enjoyed at home a large screen is a MUST!
Nothing below 60" and maybe even 65".
3D will obviously work below that but I don't think it will be as impressive as we know it can be hence the larger than "normal" screen sizes being announced by Vizio and Mits.
Ontop of all the new movies being made in 3D (Avatar, Spidey 4, I'm sure Captain America, Thor and Avengers will now be 3D), I'm also excited at revisiting the classics like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Die Hard and the list goes on and on and on in 3D!!!!
I have seen my favorite movies dozens if not hundreds of times but I'm thrilled to now revisit them in a whole new way!
It will be like watching Raiders of the Lost Ark all over again for the first time, just stop and think about that for a second!
I'm sure it will take awhile before all our classics are released in 3D format but eventually they will!
Avatar just cemented the fact that many new movies will now be reconsidered for the 3D format, hence the Spidey 4 delay/battle taking place now.
But i'm also being realistic as well, I know that I won't be watching everything in freaking 3D so I like the option that it can be used or not used depending what your watching.
For my quick weather broadcast or traffic report or quick news story or some silly quick cooking show......2D at 1080p will be good enough.
For my movies, HELL YEAH in 3D!!
Maybe not every love movie......but I never go to those anyways!! LOL!!
Bring it, i'm ready.
I don't care if it's from Sony, Panasonic, Vizio, Samsung or my Grandmother.....as long as it looks good, it's kept under $5,000 and it's big......just freaking bring it on!
We can argue until we're all blue (ray) in the face about HDMI 1.3 vs 1.4, about Shutter this and Polarized that and firmware upgrade this and Vizio vs Sony that....
72" and BIGGER PLEASE..YEAH BABY!!!!
