Taking a Stand.

Dear Movie-Makers,

Can we stop with the 3-D trend? Please?

I realize that it gives you an excuse to charge more for movie tickets.
I realize that it gives you a way to take a mediocre script and make it a little more bearable to watch.

But, let's be honest. I'm not fooled by the cute little flying character that jumps out at me, (Captain EO, anyone?) or the exploding things that jump out at me. (Okay, that's a lie. I'll be entertained and fooled for the first ten minutes. But that's it!)

I don't need to see Shrek coming out of the screen. I don't need to see Step Up in 3D. (I don't need to see it, period, but that's beside the point.) I don't need to see SORORITY GIRLS IN 3D!!! GAH!

I'd say more, but I'll let my buddy Roger say it better.


P.S. If this 3D trend continues, I will no longer put those 3D glasses back in the bin. SO HELP ME! Take THAT!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one. A "friend" told me that if we were going to take the kids to see Toy Story 3 we had to see the 3D version. She said she'd seen both and it was worth it. So we went to a theatre farther away and paid more money and I was like, seriously? Do people think this is THAT cool? Granted I spent most of the movie in the lobby with Tess but still, what I did see was unimpressive to say the least. Not to mention the money wasted pissed me off. Thanks a lot, "friend."

Amen. Down with 3D movies.

Um, I think I love you. Seeing something in 3D doesn't make it any cooler. Same with HD, Blu-Ray, or whatever it is the kids watch these days. What's wrong with a simple movie?

What's even worse are the movies that weren't originally filmed in 3D but are later converted because it's become popular. They just suck!
