Shut The Fuck Up About 3D Already
It seems the 3D movie and everything else 3D craze that swept the 50′s has made a re-emergence. And this time thanks to technology and one movie director obsessed with beating Star Wars in terms of success, 3D is everywhere.
I love 3D movies and the technology behind them as much as anyone else does, but would you all please shut the fuck up about 3D? The novelty has kind of worn off a lot and I don’t need to hear about 3D every time I step outside my front door. You can’t even catch a taxi without the Indian driver who speaks little English but knows how to say 3D telling you about the pictures that jump out of the screen.
Avatar can be blamed for the the “great 3D revival”, but when you go back a couple of years, 3D was already beginning to spread like a virus across the globe and Avatar merely helped fuel this ten-fold.
Sure, 3D movies sometimes look awesome and I’m sure having your own 3D home cinema would be cool until the novelty wore off 2 months later when you realise it’s not really that great. And the look on your the face after spending $15,000 on new technology that will be outdated in 6 months time by an even better 3D technology will be priceless and I’ll laugh uncontrollably at your stupid purchase (partially because I could never afford a $15,000 3D home system and I am a jealous person sometimes).
Bottom line: 3D is cool, but it’s not anywhere near cool enough to warrant a buzz behind it. Let me know when 3D technology allows the objects that fly out of the screen to stab people in the eye-balls and render them unconscious.
