I can remember buying movies just because it was in 3d, I have a few bad movies just because they were 3d. Now I only buy 3d if I want the movie. I haven't got tired of 3d, but I'm not going to sit through a bad movie just because it was 3d like I used to.

I much prefer the Sony Titanium 3D active glasses. smile.gif

Thanks. I would not spend that kind of money on this without trying them first. I may check out the Titanium glasses too, but I believe it is the shutter effect that is making me fatigued after 2 hours. Reminder, I can watch for 8-10 hours on my passive screen and have no problems.

I never get tired of 3D. I make my own, and that is my favorite. Sometimes, though, when walking around outside, I cross my eyes because I miss my 3D.

I won't buy a release just because it's 3D, but I do buy the 3D version of all new releases, the films that I want to buy, even if it isn't one that I'll always watch in 3D.

I'm far from being tired of 3D at the theater or viewed on my home theater. I like it so much that I bought a 3D still and camcorder to roll my own. If I have any complaint it would be with natively shot 3D that turns down the effect to the point of almost non-existence (i.e. Spiderman, Tron, Pirates of the Caribbean...) But there have been some great ones too like Hugo, Prometheus, Avatar, Tangled,Tin-Tin,and recently, Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. To me well done 3D really adds a lot to my enjoyment of the film. Having only viewed Tangled in 3D at the theater and at home I was at a friend’s place where we watched it in 2D. It just didn't seem like the same movie to me..something was really missing...oh yeah....3D. It really brought the point home how much I enjoy the added depth and how my movie experience of this film has been altered to expect it in 3D.

I also have come to appreciate a well dome 3D conversion. To me some have been almost as good as native films. I really liked Avengers, Immortals, Captain America, Titanic, among others. The process gets better all the time and works amazingly well when skilled techs do the work and take pride in the end product. I've also enjoyed a lot of the 3D programming provided by DirecTV although I'm sorry to say they seem to be souring on it due to lack of viewership. But can you really blame the viewers when the same 50 shows are in continual rotation for a year. Some of the content is inspired, like the bull riding reality show, and others are dreck, like a one camera cooking show. The n3D channel continues to provide some new excellent shows but once again the rotation is brutal.

So, in answer to the question, No, I'm not tired at all with 3D at home. I actually enjoy it at home more that at the theater as usually the image on my Samsung LED set is brighter and sharper than at the theater. I usually have no complaints of eye strain or other physical complaints. I'm just worried that the studios and audiences seem to be souring on 3D right now right at the time filmmakers are beginning to use it more creatively. I believe with the current slowly growing base of 3D TV owners and somewhat steady trickle of quality bluray movies, home 3D will slowly grow. Will anyone want to watch the Hobbit flat after Peter Jackson shows use how to do 3D right? I'm sure there will be some as there are a lot of 3D haters out there but I believe there are also a lot of guys like me who will forever feel there will be something important missing while viewing a "flat" Hobbit or Hugo or Avatar showing.

SFMike,

I agree with most of your points and that's about where I'm at when it comes to 3D. However, I thought Tron was fantastic in 3D. It's one of my favourites for an all out audio/video assault. To each their own, though.

I'm tired of 3D...I'm tired of there not being enough 3D!!! biggrin.gif

I really like that one too. cool.gif
The aspect ratio changes from 1.78:1 to 2.35:1 and back were a bit odd, though. I have no problem with the "real world" scenes being 2D.

My family loves 3D. However, there are only a limited number of movies we even care about in 3D and the rest we don't for example user our TV's auto 3D conversion.

TDK does that also, but I have a 2.35:1 setup, so when the movie switches to 1.78, the image still fills my 2.35 screen so I don't notice the change. I'm obviously missing some of the top and bottom of the image, but it still looks great to me.

Why 3D doesn't work and never will. Case closed.

My only wish is that when a movie is being released in Imax and also 3D that I have the option to see an Imax 2D version of it. I would've enjoyed that for The Avengers and Prometheus this summer. I have a mostly unprovable theory that this situation inflates 3D numbers.

No, I am not tired of 3D, especially since I took the plunge into the world of 3D Pj's!

I put up my 3D projector in July. I've probably watched a dozen or so 3D movies and I'm not tired of it.

It's kinda like a special movie night event to watch something in 3D. Wife prefers 2D but I think it's really got a lot to do with the glasses. The Epson glasses that came with my 3010 are a bit big and slide down easily.

I just picked up Uncharted 3 and have been playing it in 3D. It's been a blast! I had been playing Silent Hill Downpour prior to that and the 3D really added to the isolated feeling you get when wandering around town.

So no, definitely not tired of 3D.

I bought a 58" Panasonic VT25 series 3D plasma for a little over $2000 about 2 years ago. It came with a 3D bluray player and 3 pairs of active shutter glasses. I wish I would have saved some money and bought the S series 65" for under $1400. I didn't really need the extra blu-ray player as I already had a PS3.

The 3D effect is cool for a few movies and some video games but overall its not worth it in my opinion. My wife doesn't use it (only watched 1 movie when we first got it), and my kids are too little. I wish I would have stuck with 2D and saved my money and got a bigger screen. (Yeah I know the S series isnt as good as the VT series but I still think it would have met my needs)

I've only watched 4 3D movies in the theater. I hated the 3D in all of them. I've tried regular 3D and IMAX 3D and hate it. Apparently, I use my peripheral vision a lot and with the current generation of 3D whatever you are seeing that is not dead center of your vision is blurry and that drives me nuts. I've gotten to the point that if a movie is only released in 3D I won't go see it. I watched Transformers 3 in IMAX 3D and while the audio was great and I liked the story line, I hated the video aspect of it (the sides of the screen all blurry). When I bought the movie and watch it at home in my old 57" 2004 Toshiba 1080i projection TV, it was I never saw the original movie. 2D was Soooo much better!!!! Soooo much more enjoyable. Everything was in focus as it should be.

The last 3D movie I saw was in the theatre in about 1980, I have yet to see a modern 3D movie in a person's home or in the theatre. Maybe one day smile.gif

I consider 3D to be a "bonus feature" of my TV. It's not something that gets used on any sort of regular basis, but I do enjoy the occasional 3D movie. The 2D to 3D conversion is also nice in some instances.

Uhm. Another 3D debate? Really?

Can't we just talk about religion and politics instead?

Totally valid to bring it up in regular intervals since people will change their opinion on it when the "omg-its-new" hype fades and makes room for an actual opinion based on experience

I have a Samsung 3D LED TV and have used the 3D 1 time. It's not a big deal to me. Sure 3D is sorta cool but it strains my eyes when I watch a movie. It's nice having the option of both but I will stick with 2D and skip the side effects of 3D.
post #54 of 217
I think 3D is here to stay, but the initial excitement has worn off and many aren't going to just buy a 3D movie for the sole reason that it's in 3D. I bought a few turds just because of the drought of 3D titles, but now the movie has to be done well in order for me to purchase it. When it is done well, I prefer 3D to 2D - it's that extra immersion that brings a movie to a higher level.

I fight for the ... 3D ... users!!! biggrin.gif First Passive 3D experience: Polar Express in IMAX 3D -- still remember that fondly!

Won't ever get enough of 3D. As i write this, I am waiting for the arrival of my Blu-ray 3D copies of Avatar, Prometheus, Madagascar 3, Underworld Awakening, and Journey 2 The Mysterious Island, having just gotten BR 3D sets of Titanic, Avengers, Alice In Wonderland, Lorax, IMAX Under The Sea, Bolt, and Joe Satriani Satchurated. Can't be excited enough! cool.gif

Looking forward to getting on BR 3D: Brave, Amazing Spider-Man, Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter, MIB 3, Arthur Christmas, Paranorman, Ice Age 4 etc etc.

Other great titles to own 3D: IMAX Deep Sea, Legend Of The Guardians: Owls Of Ga'Hoole, Christmas Carol, Wrath Of The Titans, Open Season, Drive Angry (viewer discretion advised on this last one!).

What we have at home is an LG passive set. Everybody loves it -- friends, family, grown-ups, kids! Own 16 pairs of assorted passive glasses (clip-ons included) and have used as many as 14 of these at once! No complaints, just compliments!

Am I alone? Far from it! wink.gif

Yes. I no longer see 3D movies at the theater and the 3D glasses that came with my set haven't been touched in half a year. For myself, family, and friends the 3D gimmick no longer appeals to us.

While I haven't been as shocked by a 3D film since Avatar (largely because I was born in the 80's and conditioned to think 3D was a gimmick up til that day), my appreciation of 3D as a filmmaking tool has grown and grown. Most people don't seem to realize that there are such things as good 3D and bad 3D. With there being so many converted blockbusters, Hollywood has done virtually irreparable damage by giving people the impression that all 3D is pointless. But it isn't an accurate opinion. That's why I don't care about the opinions of 3D trolls on the internet-- they're largely ill-informed. Not their fault COMPLETELY I guess, but really, there's no excuse after 3 years of conversions, for people who don't know how to tell the difference between good and bad 3D.

Case re-opened. The viewing distances are such that our eyes don't actually have to be all that conflicted when it comes to actively re-focusing. It's only an issue (and a minor one at that, definitely doesn't "break" 3D like that idiot claims) with handheld screens and to a lesser extent, PC monitors.

At first we had books, then we had radio, then we had TV (black and white), then Color TV came along, then VHS, then DVD, then the in home surround sound, then HDTV, then the Blu-Ray, then 3D this is evolution and I LOVE it! I use the 3D feature on my TV at least once a week.

I really enjoy watching movies and sports in 3D. I only wish i had passive 3d. My eyes dont strain and love the quality of picture but i cant invite friends over to watch movies or sports bc i only have two pairs since the battery glasses are freakin expensive still. They came down in price but $40 is still alot.
