Cakefoo- I think you are more discriminating and less tolerant of the approaches to 3D production than I am. Simply put, if I am entertained by the movie and story, it is good. If the movie bores me or causes difficulty in viewing ( eye strain, too dark, or ghosting ) then I don't like it. I don't care if the movie was shot with twin stereo cameras, or 3D generated in post. I just want to be entertained.
The view I have of those whom I consider "village idiots" are those who simply don't want anyone else to enjoy a movie
if it isn't made according to their standards. This includes aspect ratio, sound, flat vs stereographic, etc. I appreciate those who don't like 3D because they have to wear glasses, but most people really don't care about that. Still, these people are entitled to their opinion. Their refusal to be entertained by 3D is of no concern to me. I can't recall anytime I was at Disney getting ready to enter a 3D theater along with thousands in the crowds and someone called out I won't see this exhibit because I have to wear 3D glasses. I do find it ironic that a group here of home theater enthusiasts collect such a significant number of haters of new media to include 3D as we do.
