Unusual since they normally like Pixar in 3D and Pixar is usually good at it.


The worst part was the brightness score. In my time following the 3D blog, I've never seen a movie score a donut in brightness. Along with Brave's middling reviews (and Cars 2 from last year), Pixar may have gotten a bit too fat, happy, and satisfied with itself (somewhere, Spielberg, Katzenberg, and Geffen are laughing their a$$es off while planning which idiotic pop culture reference or garbage pop song to shoehorn into Shrek 9).

It sounds like their theater's projector was too dim, and CinemaBlend, while acknowledging the role of projector brightness, is incorrectly blaming it on the film. Their reviews have been very "hit or miss" for me, and some of their rating categories are completely worthless.


I am surprised to see a 5/5 on the "before the window" score though. Pixar is usually very conservative with their 3D.

Yep, they can be too conservative to the point of the story has to be superior to make up for the cautious use of 3D. Look out if the story is weak also.

I saw the trailer in front of Prometheus and it looked great. I didn't take my glasses off because I wanted to see the 3D. It wasn't dark because my theater didn't suck. And I wasn't paying attention to any windows because I get a headache if I focus on the edge of the screen, which is the only way I can tell where the window is in a dark theater.

"Does It Fit?". Completely absurd. 3D works for any genre.


"Planning & Effort" has become a rating of how enthusiastic the director's comments about 3D are in pre-release interviews rather than a commentary about how 3D is actually used to enhance the scenes in the movie.


Then there's "Audience Health," which is way overdramatic and could easily be eliminated. They could just detract points from "Planning & Effort" on the rare occasion that something is seriously uncomfortable about the way 3D is used.
