I've officially only seen two movies with the new technology so far, Beowulf and The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D. With the latter, the effects were so subtle that I really didn't see the point of rejigging it at all. Maybe it's quite a mission re-releasing movies with the 3D treatment when they were never designed that way in the first place. With Beowulf every camera movement was set up with the 3D in mind. And even then, there were only a couple of set-pieces that really stood out: Grendel's attack on the mead hall, and Jolie's cave.
I think it's in a pretty tenuous position right now: if Journey to the Centre of the Earth fails, which I can easily imagine it doing, that might put paid to the whole endeavour entirely. Studios are like agoraphobic turtles...they don't go out of their shells too often, but when they do, the first sign of danger they encounter will see them retreating back into safety again.
But it can go sooooo wrong.
Anyone remember Freddy VI: Freddy's Dead.
I saw that POS in the cinema with the special glasses which you only used at the end of the film. Well.....as soon as the film asked you to put the glasses on, everything else took a back seat.
I remember a scene where someone says, 'Look, I've found weapons' - it was knife and a pipe bomb but for some reason the direction made it look like a monkey had just found how to use a bone as a weapon at the beginning of 2001.
She was waving that shit at the camera for what seemed like forever.
How about making a point of having 3D.
