I went and was not blown away by Avatar 3D at all.. Lots of hype and it does not live up to it at all in my opinion. I'm still calling FAD, the industry just may lose it shorts on this direction. My views on this are disturbing because I am one that is seriously considering moving to 3D in my theater. More so than anybody else I know.
I don't know how anyone could not be blown away by this film.
I have waited over 40 years to see this kind of spectacular 3D done with real actors & could not be more excited about the future of the new 3D.
Nothing ever done before comes close to the what we have seen in Avatar!
I have a great projector now, but have been ruined forever on 2D since seeing this great film.
But, reality is that it will be at least 5-10 years before the general public will have enough sources to be usable. Just look at HDTV to see how many years that has taken!
So for now, get the projector, since you have a number of years to go before the new 3D will be worth spending any money on.
