Hmm. I found the first one's 3D didn't really shine as I felt they used the cinematography of the original LOTR as a template. One of those instances where tacking on nice tech doesn't necessarily...

Like most people, I have two criteria for 3D movies: must have great 3D, and must be a thrilling movie overall. But what's great/thrilling to me may differ wildly from a lot of people reading this. I...

I like 3D but it doesn't make up for mediocre content anymore. I'll take a really freaking good 2D movie over it any day of the week.

Literally no other 3D content interests me than two upcoming movies. If someone felt the same way regarding TV in general, I wouldn't fault them for not owning a set .

Since Gravity, I've seen ~150 movies, none of them in 3D. Lack of compelling artistic use of 3D, and lack of emotionally-engaging movies getting 3D versions. 95% of action movies are riding the...

A fad is something that more or less dies after a short stint of popularity. "Is the 3D fad dying" is like asking "Is the 3D fad a fad?"

You've come in here with the answer already in your mind.
