Sure, being CG makes things a little more possible, like epic camera work, but the live action movies are actually more hampered in large part due to filmmakers being stuck thinking in 2D and not knowing how to envision a 3D movie from the preproduction stage, whereas CG movie makers take the time to get their stereography just right, even after the animations have been done.
Transformers 3D gave me headaches.
So your particular screening gave you a headache... clearly it didn't do that with everyone.
Avatar really remains the sole justifiable reason to opt for 3D - a completely CGai world whose depth came to life in 3D.
Here you go again, arguing with someone who merely had an opinion. No intelligent person is going to play that game.
I did end up some movies like watching Thor and Avengers in 3D, but only because 2D was sold out.
I was unimpressed by the 3D in Avengers and the Thor trailer.They were conversions done not for art, but for money, and more time was spent making sure the heroes' muscles were well oiled rather than how the 3D was going to compare to the best. So what if they weren't good in 3D? When people try 3D is good, that's what counts.
Sometimes we have to take the 3D glasses off just to 'take a break' - is that really your idea of "stunning"?
Whatever dark recess you pulled that comment from, it wasn't constructive or well thought out.
