Seriously... 3D?!?
« on: April 23, 2010, 11:24:40 PM »
I just read online that Paramount is converting The Last Airbender to the latest what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-Hollywood-craze 3D. Anyone else think this is a very TERRIBLE idea?

Yeah. 3D is terrible! The Last Airbender in 3D would be terrifying!

Don't watch it in 3D if it bothers you.  ;)

3D is what CGI needed to even have a touch of realism.

3D is never a bad idea from a financial standpoint. There's a good chance this film will make its money back just through 3D ticket sales -- therefor increasing the chances of a sequel. You're not forced to watch a 3D movie; if it bothers you so much, don't watch it, as I said. People need to do their research before going into a 3D movie: Is it worth it? Does it enhance the experience? How much more will I spend?
If they don't do their research and end up with a Clash of the Titans pop up book as a film, then that's there fault. From what I gather, Last Airbender has the people behind Avatar behind the 3D conversion process. These people know what they're doing. Also, a 3D version was planned from the beginning -- the movie was shot in a way that would take advantage of a 3D conversion. M. Night approves it. I'm excited about the possibilities. Will I see it in 3D? Right now I'm saying yes, but like I said, I will wait to see the reviews.

I don't care about the 3D, I care about the IMAX!!! :D Our IMAX is IMAX 3D so you have to have one with the other I think...I did like "the other avatar" in 3D...it looked pretty cool.

eh, 3d or not i would rather see the non 3d-ish version   ;)
i don't have anything aginst 3d but, the last time i saw a 3d movie (Cameron's avatar) i was sitting in the second row and honestly, it didn't really do it...  :P
but that was just my luck, it was probably ok in the back of the room
(i am still not likely to forget that "3d" experience soon so i would rather see airbender regular    ;D)

OOohhh nooo. NEVER sit close to the front. I kill my friends when they take us to a movie late and we get stuck in the front. The Two Towers made me sick to my stomach. lol

yeah, i agree with you but the theater was stuffed full!!!
(AND, it was already a good number of weeks since it started showing but nevertheless, we were lucky to get seats together - or any seats at all)

Your theatres must do really good business. Ours clear out after the first two/three weeks.

Avatar was in the theaters 'round us for a good 2-3 months (with a fair amount of ppl quite often too)
...i'm actually not sure how long Avatar was playing but it was longer than i was used to - that's for sure

i doubt airbender will have such success (with or w/o 3D) but lets wait and see  ;)

Avatar was filmed to be seen in 3D. I think thats what makes that movie different than most 3D movies. I don't think Airbender was specificly shot to be seen in 3D? They will probably make it look 3D is post-production. Might be cool. Some movies look cool in 3D and some don't look that much different.

I will probably see Airbender in a normal showing (not 3D).
Well do have him come forward.

I think it'll be successful enough here. I've gotten a lot of people at theatres curious, with my kowtowing to the posters and all. lol People ask questions when I do that, and that gives me ample time to get them interested.
