I hate 3-D. I have yet to see a movie that was made even a tad bit better because of 3-D, they give me a headache, 3-D sometimes makes the movie blurry and unwatchable, it rises the already high ticket costs and some movies are only being made this way, or they only play the non-3D versions once or twice late at night. Of course that means you can't get a matinee price so they get your money one way or the other.

Simply put, I refuse to any more 3-D movies even if it means missing out on a few good movies.

3-D has been around since the beginning of movie making. It keeps being brought back to fail over and over again, and the major reasons have been because it makes people's eyes hurt, makes them sick and costs too much money. It's a cool concept that has never worked very well. Disney World is one of the few places where they made it work, but I'm not sure what type of 3-D they use because there have been so many types over the years.

Every theater I've gone to charges $1 more for 3D movies. IMAX is more expensive than a regular movie anyway, so I don't think they can be considered the norm.

I hate 3D movies. I don't see in 3D because I have monocular vision, but I have to wear the glasses anyway or else the movie is blurry. And the last one we saw (Tangled) was SO dark! It was brighter without the glasses, but of course that wasn't an option since our theater only showed the 3D version.

I am not a fan of 3D and definitely won't pay a premium to see a movie that is 3D. I rarely see any movies at the theater anyway. In all of 2010 I saw exactly one.

Look at the market for home sound equipment. There is one, absolutely, but it is by no means the middle-class norm to buy a full surround-sound system. Audiophiles love them and find them essential, but most of the rest of us don't find that we really need them to enjoy the songs in our collections.

I feel the same thing will be the case with 3D. People who really care about BE-AU-TI-FUL picture quality will invest, and people who are OK as long as they can see the action will not. I would fall into the latter camp -- I care so little about "clarity" that I would be just fine watching color broadcasts as B&W for most purposes. My "big" TV is a 32", and I'm not planning to ever go up from that size.

The only movie I think that needs to be seen in 3D is Avatar. Other than that I'm not into 3D, I already wear glasses so wearing the 3D on top of them really bugs me.

James Cameron is working on a new 3D feature, a documentary set in the Amazon. It'll probably do for 3D documentaries what Avatar has done for 3D sci-fi flicks.

LOL, unless I get a bigger house, what I'm missing is putting our shoes on the screen. (And as my house is paid for, probably not going to happen.)

I'm sure it's lovely to have a theatre for a living room, but there is a reason why very few people want to sit in the front row of a movie theatre.

3 d tv

After all the different post i am now thinking of going to best buy and checking out there 3 d tv's. I called and they said you also have to buy the glasses for $159.99 each. We have 5 people in our family with tax thats close to a 1000.00 just for the glasses. I am sure it will be like the remote either missing or broken. I bet it takes a lot of batters as well. I will keep you posted.

The glasses that run $150-160 need a 3032 battery to run it, and lasts about 50 hours. The glasses that run $190-200 can be recharged via USB.

VIZIO came out with a 3DTV that uses glasses like what is used at your local movie place but the TV is pricy.

In reality buying a complete 3DTV package today isn't nearly as much as a stand alone HDTV was 3 years ago. I just bought a 40" Samsung, 3D Blu-ray player and 3D starter kit (All four Shrek movies and two pairs of glasses) and it cost over $800 less than my 40" Samsung from 3 years ago.

I hate 3D. I will never buy a 3D tv and think they are ridiculous. I do not want to wear a helmet or glasses to watch the news. I also will not go and see a movie if it is in 3D.
