I don't think anyone in this thread is naysaying 3D, just realistically observing its rise and fall, and trying to figure out why the mass market is responding the way it is.

I wouldn't say 3D's dead, but it is going through a very long lull. It's apparent to me that 3DTV with glasses has a finite lifespan. Laser theater projectors and autostereoscopic TV sets need to get...

Looking at it in the context of the opening post and thread title, an import doesn't count as anything more than a drop in the bucket, because as someone else said, the number of imports is likely...

You could also have bought a plane ticket to China to see Noah 3D in theaters. Only then are you a TRUE AVSFORUM 3D FAN.

I never predicted the 3D quality. I simply analyzed the justification of a 3D version by pointing out the cinematography, which is a base for 3D fit.

1. There weren't plenty of wide shots in MY...

I have no objections regarding the decision to keep the 3D version away from the US. The vast majority of the movie is dim, closeup long-lens shoulder rig dialog shots with out of focus backgrounds....

Sure 3D was riding the wave of Avatar's success, but that's still accounted for in the "3D as a whole" category. It's still a problem if these revenues aren't coming in for these lower-quality...

It's nice that Hollywood still finds 3D to be the de facto format for big budget movies, and yes, 3D does help boost overall sales by around 15%, but the main reason there are so many top-10-grossing...

I don't see the logic path you took to make the claim that theaters pocket the 3D surcharge themselves. If that were true, studios would have no incentive to make 3D movies. Also, you made it sound...

That's what he's saying, but he doesn't provide any kind of evidence how the theater in question shares its revenues with studios.

All that aside, the article doesn't say what you said it says. It actually says 2015 will be the biggest year ever for 3D, which sounds like apples to apples.

Also, you don't need to win over 100%...
