3D Movies… The Coolest Thing Since… 3D Movies

I think 3D movies are cool. I really do. But why is there such a big hoopla about them? Apparently people were smart enough in the 50’s to figure out they are a fad that soon dies out. But now we are falling for it like crazy.

What is fun at Disneyland is expensive and gives you a headache all the time. Last time I went to see a movie (Shrek 4) all but ONE of the movies advertised was in 3D. That is an extra $3 per person every time someone sees a 3D movie.

But you get a sweet pair of Buddy Holly glasses, that you can recycle or take home as a souvenir. But you can’t bring them back. At least not for a discount, even though they claim the extra charge is for the glasses.

Then they make 3D TVs. I’m sure you want to pay an extra $300+ for your TV to do what a pair of paper glasses can do for $1. Oh, and that won’t cover the 3D glasses. Yeah, you have to shell out another $150 or so dollars if you and your honey want to watch it. Got kids? $150 for every two of them that want to watch the wonderful 3D images.

Yeah, this is what people should spend money researching… not cancer, or AIDS, or world hunger. Entertainment. Recycled entertainment.

That being said, if they remake Star Wars in 3D I will be the first in line to see it. Well not really, because I hate lines. I’ll probably show up after its been out for a week or two and I can just go right in. For a matinee.

  1. I agree with everything you just said. 3D is a fun novelty kinda thing for every now and then but I'm not about to switch my entire collection over to 3D. Way too expensive and the first 15 minutes of any 3D movie I see gives me a raging headache. Oh my God, can you imagine having to watch something like Cloverfield in 3D? That would probably work faster than Epicac at making someone vomit.I will say I think the new 3DS seems pretty cool, but I have yet to see one in person to see how amazing it really is (or isn't).
