I asked her why she was paying to see a movie she had already seen, to which she replied: “But this is in 3D.”
In a vain attempt to make her realize that when a movie is shown in 3D it is most likely just a chance by the movie cinema to make you discharge you money towards their way. You think that most people would realize this, yet they don’t. While I hope readers know what I’m talking about, if you don’t, then, I hope that you would care to understand why I think you shouldn’t waste 8 to 12 dollars. In the case of a movies showing in Los Angeles for 15 dollars, why watch what you have probably watched multiple times for the sake of 3D?
Recently the industry has been one filled with multiple examples of this money grabbing attempt including three Disney movies (counting the upcoming release of Finding Nemo in 3D, an entire rerun of Star Wars Episode One (although in a few places there has been entire reruns of the entire saga in 3D for an extra cost), and now even Titanic has shown itself to be a part of the rerun group.
As great as some of these movies may be there is a small chance that being shown in 3D will improve them, due to the inability of these movies to have any scenes capable of being magnificent with 3D. Let’s face it, is it really better where some of these movies have characters just running around or laughing, paying unnecessary money to see it in bulky 3D glasses.
In my opinion, Star Wars is the only set of movies that is improved with 3D, but any other movie just fall short of a huge improvement due to the fact that they weren’t filmed to be in 3D.
