3D looks better on my 3D TV-Screen (with active 3D glasses) than on most movie theaters from my town's area anyway.
I LOVE 3D but even when it's well used in movies the theaters experience is more than often a letdown.
That's why, more and more, I'll go watch movies in 2D then, if I really like it, I can buy the 3D bluray.
I'm in the minority but I think 3D at home is the way to go. There you can adjust the depth and the lightness for a good experience.
I just watched Scott's Exodus in 3D bluray (cheap buy) and I think it added a lot to an overall okayish movie. If I saw it in theater I'm sure either the picture would have been too dark, or the 2 pictures not perfectly aligned the proper way, etc...

I think the proliferation of IMAX, or what passes for IMAX, cinemas is why the regular multiplexes have dropped 3D. It was a fad, date night doesn't want glasses, so why bother.

But for those that do want to see the film in all it's glory, they will seek out IMAX. I know I do, and when I have I've enjoyed the 3D immensely. My wife, she couldn't care less, so she's happy on date night with good old 2D, ten minutes from the house.

Please, no jokes about the D and my wife  Cool
It'll never happen but... I'd be happy to pay the increased 3D prices for 35mm showings, rather than digital. When people can easily have 4K at home, the cinemas need to be offering something more. People will have 8k, 12K, even IMAX TVs one day but 35mm is something that will never be available for widespread home viewing. On the entertainment battlefield, it's something that TV could never compete with but sadly cinemas decommissioned their 35mm weaponry long ago Big Grin .
Just watched Alfred Hitchcock's "Spellbound". Man is that guy edgey. I cringed twice near the end

when Peck's character remembers accidently killing his brother and the first-person perspective suicide...yikes!

I spoke too soon(ish)... At the same multiplex, all the screenings of the new Apes film are in 3D for the first 3-days to try and force people into seeing it in 3D. After that it's a third 3D for 3 days, then only one daily 3D screening for 3 days, then no 3D screenings after that.

(By the way, out of 55 screenings of the Spider-Man film, only one is in 3D)
With justice league coming out next year a thought just occured to me .if it does well at the box office the planned sequel they rumored was flashpoint ,so my point was flashpoint as you know is about flash creating a alternate timeline with thomas wayne being batman.so with jefferey dean morgan playing thomas wayne in batman vs superman ,do you think he will reprise his role as thomas wayne and become batman? if not who do you think would be perfect for role?

I regret to inform everyone that, according to former AV Club writer Nathan Rabin, the PG-13 Michael Shannon-starring Furry-themed Christmas/Bigfoot sex farce Pottersville, a movie that actually exists, is, remarkably, not only bad, but boring as heck, to boot.
