May need to take back my earlier comment about just seeing the next avatar and no more 3d after that...

Been busy at work and also spent most of my october on my horror movie marathon biggrin.gif but i am gonna be checking out GRAVITY this weekend. everyone I've talked to that doesnt enjoy 3d as much says the 3D in this movie is absolutely fabulous. Doesnt look like any IMAX 3d showings left, so will have to go with REAL3D - hopefully it'll work out.

A wonderful surprise. the 3d was alright! I had a terrible experience with REALD before when I saw UP, but the picture for GRAVITY was alright. didnt seem overly dim or dull. I dont know if its because the movie was mostly set in black space and not really in a daylight setting.

still uncomfortable wearing 3d glasses over rx glasses. but i prefer not to wear contacts when at the theatre if I can help it. maybe that'll need to change :/

I have motion sickness with my LCD 120hz and above refresh. Gets me very dizzy. I setup the tv for 60hz, and now everything is fine! hopefully 4k won't induce dizziness and nausea.

I have watched very few 3D movie and the worst I experienced was some eyestrain.

It had been 2D movies with shaky-cam that gave me serious headaches, the worst being Cloverfield, which I watched at a theater/pub. I don't drink, but that is the only place in town to watch a movie on the big screen for $3. After the movie was over, I turned to my left and commented to a perfect stranger, "I bet alcohol would have helped with this movie; I have a headache." He replied, "The beer didn't help." "And your friend?" "He also has a headache."

And this hasn't been limited to the silver screen. After I purchased my 46-in HDTV (predates my current 50-in), I tried watching The Blair Witch Project and found it unwatchable on that screen, again because the camera was always shaking. Now that I have a VCR/DVD player connected to a much smaller screen ... well, actually, I think I'll pass.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Starter Package), DVD/VHS player.

The stuff that should be in 3D is in 3D. The only thing I suffer from is 3D sticker-shock. Getting a region-free movie from England for $40 is nuts. Paying $30 in the US is similarly nuts. C'mon guys.

Java developers, when I saw what has been placed into Java 8 I was immediately reminded of how I've spent so much of my life trying to protect engineers from themselves. Lambda expressions are a horrible idea. Gentlemen: the goal isn't to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer. The goal is to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer exhausted and hopped up on caffeine at 3 am. What a disaster Java 8 is!

For sure and certain, those with negativity bias will tell you that the poll will not be scientific.

Well, the fact that the poll is a random internet poll and not a scientific poll is a fact.

But to be clear, my comment was over a year ago and therefore I'm not sure what you're implying here. For what it's worth, I love 3D and I've never suffered 3D sickness.

Never makes me sick or dizzy.

The only thing it does do is give me a condition of looking to buy all the 3D Blus I can.

Yes. And at the current pricing of these @#$%ing things, it's pushed me closer than ever to actually for the first time in my life recommending piracy. I'm not quite there yet, but seriously industry guys----are you trying to kill this art form? This is just patently ridiculous.
