Hi Wildefans (I like that collective term).
I want to talk to you about 3D movies.
It seems that they are pushing this craze way too much, everything and anything is now available in 3D. How fucking exciting, it'll be like being right there in the midsts of the action.
I watched this twice at the cinema, both times in 3D. It was an okay film and it looked amazing. I'm short sighted which means I need glasses for driving, watching television and going to the cinema. 3D glasses fit fine over my geek specs. But the headache that comes with the combo is about 12,000 times less desirable than a kick in the cunt (approximately).
I soon forgot about the headache, pressure on my nose and general shittiness because it was fun and it was a novelty. Everything looked pretty, especially the flora and fauna on Pandora. But I would've probably enjoyed the film as much if I hadn't been watching it in 3D.
Mr. Wilde and I have seen every Saw film at the cinema. We weren't going to miss out on this one - the last one (?) - and break our perfect streak. I thought that 3D would be quite cool, blood flinging at us, the whole audience jumping, 3D gore and so on.
The film, as far as Saw films go, was okay. I certainly enjoyed it storyline-wise. But the 3D aspect completely ruined it for me. Firstly, there was the headache again. Either I could watch the film in 3D or it could be sharp, I couldn't have both.
Then there was the motion blur, if someone or something moved quickly then there was an obvious trail behind them. In places it also looked very stuttery.
Because of the headache I eventually had to take off my geek specs and just had the 3D glasses on. This lessened the motion blur (because everything was now a bit blurry). Headache got better but didn't leave. Eventually I took off the 3D glasses altogether and watched the film. Here I began to enjoy it a bit more, even though there was the occasional time where the background looked funny and the foreground was sharp.
3D adds absolutely nothing to that film.
I think 3D should be for animated films only, it just looks shit on film films. I bet Toy Story was great in 3D, Avatar wasn't bad but Saw was shit and ruined the whole horror experience for me as well as the rest of the evening - what can a girl do with a headache? I'm a wimp.
And now they are talking about bringing old films back in 3D and releasing every fucking piece of shit for 3D. I don't care. Improve your technology then push this stupid fucking novelty our way. 3D movies could be superfuckingcool but at the moment the technology is lacking. It's just a way of making more money.
What do you think of 3D movies? Love or hate?
