Thor: God of 3D Conversion? You Decide!

Thor was the demigod of the box office this weekend with $66 million dollars in ticket sales.  MTBS hasn't checked it out yet, but we do know that Thor is a 2D to 3D conversion, and not a true stereoscopic 3D film that is based on two unique camera views.


We'd be interested to hear from MTBS members on what they thought of this conversion and the trend of 2D-3D conversion.  Titles like Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender were publicly shamed by consumers and industry alike because of their poor 3D conversion.  In your opinion, is the technology growing more practical and visually effective with each movie release, or is this a 3D quick-fix that is causing more long term harm than good?  If you knew a 3D movie was a conversion before going to the theater, would you still pay the 3D premium, or save some money and go for the original 2D version?

Newest MTBS Member! (UPDATED)

Many people may not be aware, but in addition to the contributions made by stereoscopic 3D gamers, Meant to be Seen is very much a family business which was founded by Neil Schneider and his wife, Pam Swartz (MetalQueen).

The force is strong with this one!

The MTBS team is very proud to announce its latest member: Daniel Joseph (DJ) Schneider!  Despite warnings of watching 3D while pregnant, Daniel was born the evening of April 30th, 2011 at just over eight pounds.  He has already adopted a true gamer's sleeping and pooping schedule which is broken up into two to three hour increments, and he somehow manages to get away with avoiding all responsibilities.
