  1. #1 Is 3D dying 
    Yes, 3D is back on the storage shelf again, thanks to total ignorance of stereoscopic vision rules. Why would anyone adopt something that distorts reality and is in conflict with human brain? Would you adopt continuously distorted sound or pictures which always have false color? 3D producers quickly make up an excuse saying that 3D is an art tool and every movie is or must be an artistic and unreal to catch an interest of general audience. Well now you got it. Consumers cannot be fulled when it comes to realistic 3D content. Naturally they rejected as it confuses their size and depth perception ability making the experience of 3D movie watching, annoying. Realistic 3D content on the other hand is viral and addictive. Anyone who has experience realistic 3D content is hooked up for life. Unfortunately realistic 3D content can only be seen in small circles of 3D enthusiasts who know how to produce it an have custom 3D viewing systems which allow realistic 3D viewing. What's left of the 3D boom of the 2010 is the 3D equipment which will some little custom work can be adopted to produce and display realistic 3D content. Yes, it is a small market but unlike the gimmick 3D, realistic 3D will never die. http://www.thewrap.com/movies/articl...dy-finds-60996

    It's already dead to me...

    I don't even bother going to a 3D film anymore. My kids also have had enough. Cheaper ticket, same movie without the darkness and the headache. :) WIN WIN.

    I specifically avoid 3D showings.

    I also wear glasses... SO, It was dead to me from this generations start.

    "Is" makes me think it's still alive, just not all the way dead. I think it might be totally dead. Just read yesterday that ESPN3D is going off the air soon, citing lack of consumer interest and, consequently, inability to attract advertisers.

    I hope so.

    Most films would be better of if they spent that extra money on story writers / better plots and things like it. Even the heavy VFX films I think benefit heavily from not being done in cumbersome 3D. The "3D experience" is also very much limiting the camera work, the set designs and pretty much everything if the 3d should look good. So to me there is pretty much not a single film that actually benefit from being done in 3D.

    Couldn't agree more. I'm always looking at the 2d sessions to take my kids. 3d was just a diversion to making great films. I'm also glad I never bought one of those 3d tvs.

    Totally agree - except one "fundamental" movie - Avatar. Designed for 3D, properly messured, with animations and colors suitable for 3D - and enough. Everything later - everybody know. Sometimes ridicolus, always darker, limited with rigs, like "reminder" - dont forget, it is just movie, not even story - next efect - small fly, big tyranosaurus or leaf of grass near face will remind you - this is only movie...etc
