I have absolutely no problems with people that don't want to watch 3D, until they start pestering me with "3D is teh suck!!" statements all the time. Then it starts getting on people's nerves, and flame wars break out.
Let's take a look at this statement from earlier in the thread:

He's not saying 3D sucks. He's not rambling on about the "gimmick" or how we're all stupid for buying into the format. He presented a very short, to-the-point statement about why he personally
doesn't watch 3D. And I am 100% okay with that. I know it's not for everybody, and if someone simply says "it's not for me", that is a-okay.
The exact same thing applies to Chris Nolan's statement. He took an overly negative approach to 3D in that quote, and it's turned into quite the, uh... "discussion" here. What he should probably have said is what he said back when the studios were trying to pressure him into doing a 3D conversion on The Dark Knight
. His attitude then was simply that 3D didn't serve the story, and the film had been shot in a 2D fashion, and a conversion, especially done just for the money, would only hurt the film, and do nothing to improve or help it in any way.
If he had said the same thing about TDKR, whether he's talking conversion or native 3D, I think we all would have been fine with it.
While I'm a fan of the 3D format overall, moreso recently, I know that it's not suited for everything, and it's not going to lessen my enjoyment of TDKR to "have" to see it in 2D. My only complaint is that I'm working this weekend and probably won't get to see the film until next weekend. I'm going to have to wear earplugs to the office next week to avoid spoilers.
