Really, how hard is it to try and see a film in two dimensions these days?
I don’t have a problem with 3D, in fact I quite like it for the two minutes were it actually feels like it’s making a difference in the cinema before it feels like just another movie you didn’t pay five pounds extra for. However, cinemas understand student budgets, that’s why they have student tickets (however overpriced they are as well), so they must understand the benefits of not turning every screen into some kind of cinematic beer google….s… on the wallet, and really, things aren’t that much better in 3D unless you’re trying to hunt something. Stereoscopic vision was not made for having enjoyable experiences, not that that’s any sort of excuse not to use 3D technology in movies, I just want to keep blathering on until there are more showings of movies I want to see in the two dimensions I don’t need funky funky glasses to observe.
You go to the cinema to see a movie, and I don’t see how you’re going to capture any less of the story line if there isn’t shit flying in your face all the time. In fact, I would go as far to say that you’re probably going to catch more of the story if there isn’t shit flying in your face, unless the film itself is called something like Faeces Flinger 3D or something equally absurd.
