I read that 3D is just a fade from an article on askmen...Opinions!?
I think it will continue predominately in computer animated movies, which overall have seemed to be the ones that have made the best use of it.
Plus, did he think people were NOT
going to see Dark Knight Rises just because it wasn't in 3D? Avengers was released in 3D, and was a huge success. Does that totally refute his argument, since he seems to be basing it on the success of one movie that didn't have a 3D release?
IMO, 3D should add to the experience of a movie, not make up for a crappy plot and acting with a few pop out effects. People definitely won't continue to pay the premium to see a 3D version of a movie, if the 3D is executed poorly, or if it adds nothing to the experience of watching the movie. Avatar was a better experience because of 3D. That's how it should be.
3D has never been truly mainstream, and I don't see it becoming so in the foreseeable future. But today's 3D potential quality is far and away the best it's ever been for movies and TV. I'd hate to see it go away again.
