Hollywood seems to be funneling 3D into nothing more than a popcorn action flick add-on. Maybe consistently decent 3D action movies is good enough for wide acceptance of 3D, but I personally need to...

I think 3D in theaters is settling after the Avatar bubble. I don't think it'll decline much more if any in 2015 and onward.

Oh, and again, you still don't understand cinematography's role as anything more than beauty shots. Guess you'll never learn until you become a cinematographer and/or editor yourself.

If Transcendence didn't have great cinematography, you would have enjoyed the movie even less then, right?

I sense that you are very far from understanding the concept of visual storytelling- you...

Value assessment doesn't even enter the picture if you don't acknowledge that 3D is superior to 2D. You said 3D was never a better experience than 2D, 3D doesn't have any benefits, 3D doesn't make a...

Ah, I didn't see that you could expand the Blu-ray tree. When I searched, there was no standalone result for the 2D version. I wonder if that was the goal?

Seriously though, using one week of...

Well look at the facts- the only way to get the 2D Blu-ray on Amazon is the 3D combo. And the combo is priced identically or even cheaper than the 2D-only Blu-ray at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc.

Better at sharpness, sure. But despite halving the resolution on a 1080p set, I prefer the passive image because it doesn't flicker. At 4K the resolution drop will be even less noticeable because to...

What do you mean? I don't simply prefer 2D or 3D like I do chocolate vs sardines.

For instance, the left lens adds a dark brown tint on my iPhone in portrait mode, dark blue in landscape. The right lens has no effect in either orientation other than a little light loss.

3D haters are the worst, citing cartoons from 10 years ago as if they're in any way representative of 3D films being made today.

Beat it kiddo! It's clear you were never a match for our logic.
