More 3D movies, 3D HDTV’s and the Nintendo 3DS. What does it all mean? Why is 3D being pushed so hard? Don’t get me wrong, it is nice when done right, but it doesn’t seem like it’s being used today like it was back in the 80’s. It seems like damn near every movie that’s going to be made is going to be in 3D. Now, I’ve seen Avatar in 3D. While I don’t think the movie was a tour de force like all the reviews and bandwagon riders say, I did find it entertaining none the less. The 3D effect however was lackluster at best. Nothing jumped out at you. It seems like it was used to stick stuff in your way more than anything else.
It would have been nice to see the mountains of Pandora actually floating in right above my seat. The way the N3DS will work sounds weird. Report say the picture won’t jump out at you, but that the games will have some kind of strange depth view done into the system while playing them. Naturally if you look at it at a bad angle, you won’t be able to see the 3D. So does it look like 2D when that happens or straight shit? Also, what about cyclops and people that have bad depth perception? I know that’s a small group, but they won’t be able to enjoy the 3D esque/pseudo goodness.
So SRK, what’s your opinion on this latest 3D craze?
