That's the problem studio's use it as a cash-in. The studio's and lessor filmmakers have used it horribly.

Yup. It's advertised almost entirely as a gimmick... which is a shame because it really can make a movie more interesting.

I've found most 3D shit distracts me. Even in movie such as Avatar where it's been used well.

How does it distract you? I don't mean that in some argumentative way, but honestly what about it takes away from what else is going on?

I find the added depth and movement adds to the atmosphere and aesthetics of the movie.

You read what SeaHag posted, and he says he's looking at the shot like a cinematographer would.

While that doesn't prove it'll take it to a new level, it does show he's not going for gimmick.

For one, it makes the movie dim. That's my biggest problem. You also have to get a good seat, to fully appreciate it. The lenses on the glasses are too small in most of my experiences as well.

This is all for the "Real D" crap, in normal theatres. IMAX 3D was pretty impressive when I saw it.

Overall though, it is a gimmick, and ulimately unneccessary. At least they don't force it on people though, so whatever. As long as I have a choice, I really don't care.

I'm still in the camp of people who could give a fuck about 3-D and just assume not bother with it. But I can appreciate where Scott's coming from in that he brought up the fact that we as humans see in 3-D, not 2-D. It's not about throwing things at the audience's faces for the sake of making the experience gimmicky. It's about trying to utilize the full potential of our peripheral vision to make the viewing experience as immersive as possible.

Every 3d movie I've seen in theaters looked great. Maybe it's just the way different theaters light the theaters and position the audience... I pretty much only go to one theater. But two of my friends have 3d TVs and they are even better than the theater. Comfortable seating and good lighting are key. Someday they'll perfect the technology.

Well it's always going to be a subjective matter but it's not the first thing that came to mind to me with this movie.
I don't hate 3D, but the emphasis to stick it into most new releases seems like we are being force-fed so much people will tire of it - especially if it's poorly done or unrefined.

In any case, arguing aside - I'll see this movie in any format I can see it in.

Another reason why Christopher Nolan rules. And he took it a step further by recommending people to avoid seeing TDKR in a theater using a digital projector if they could. (i need a legit imax theater to open-up close to me)
