^^^ AMEN to that my friends! Totally agree!
I totally understand that 3D is not for everyone, and that's okay.
However, I for one LOVE 3D - both at home and
at the theater.
I always choose to watch movies at the theater in 3D (when available).
I purchase many of my Blu-ray movies in 3D format (it usually comes with a 2D version as well so this way I can choose to watch it in 3D or 2D - and that's just it: I have a choice). 3D was very much a "must have" feature when I was shopping for a new TV. It really saddens me that new Samsung TVs will no longer support it.
Do I think that every
movie should be seen in 3D? No, of course not. As many have already stated, there are some great
3D movies, some average
3D movies, and some terrible
ones that should never have been made/released in 3D. Not all are created equal.
That said, I believe a "great" (or "very good") 3D movie looks fantastic
on my TV. The TV gets really bright so, by simply turning up the brightness (Backlight), the 3D movie looks every bit as bright as the 2D version. And with a few other minor adjustments to the picture, it looks every bit as good as the 2D version.
I also LOVE viewing HDR content as well. It looks great on this TV. However, if I had to pick only one, I would probably still pick a "great" 3D movie in SDR over the same movie in HDR (as long as the 3D was done really well of course). Of course I will probably end up "double-dipping" on many of my favorites.
It really bothers and saddens me that 3D TVs are being "phased-out"
. I really hope that my current Samsung TV doesn't break down anytime soon. Heck, if I could afford it, I would go out and buy another 3D TV right now - just in case.
