Worth it in 3-D - 19/5/2013 12:12:00 PM

The purpose of this topic is to allow us to discuss whether it is worthwhile going to see a film in 3-D or not. At the moment I'm looking at The Great Gatsby and I have no idea whether it is worth stumping up the extra cash to see the film in 3-D. So, I'm suggesting we need to add this to the review section.

Having seen and thoroughly enjoyed Judge Dredd, Avatar and Avengers in 3-D and been found The Hobbit a bit meh, and others terribly retroscoped rendering the film totally unenjoyable.

So, has anyone seen a film in 3-D and thought "great" or I wish I had seen it in 2-D instead.

This will get moved / locked because we have existing threads in other sections. My answer to your question however, is no.

I used to hate 3D, but I've warmed to it a bit lately for one simple reason: I bought some decent 3D glasses! Obviously that's no help to people with eyesight issues, or who resent paying extra for 3D films (I buy the monthly Cineworld pass so that doesn't affect me), but I really do recommend, if you go to the cinema a lot and you're kind of now resigned to 3D, go on eBay and buy some good glasses. Mine were 20. The glasses they give you for a quid in the cinema are next to useless, and that's a vast part of the problem, I've found. Instead of just that thin film where you have to concentrate on a single spot on the screen and everything else is out of focus (that was my experience) proper glasses have proper hard lenses, and the ones I bought were a wraparound style so your whole frame of vision is 3Dified! I probably look a tool in them but it's dark! Honestly, I'm not spamming because I work for a 3D glasses company. I won't even say the make of the ones I bought (they're by a famous camera manufacturer). But it turns out decent glasses make a massive difference. For me, anyway. I wish I'd had them for Dredd.

This section is only for reviews.

I can't move it as there is already an extensive discussion regarding 3D in Movie Musings, and we don't duplicate threads. Alternatively, you could ask a specific question in Knowledge base, or tag the question onto the existing review thread
