To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Hugo Ticket
By Katey Rich
When we first started writing the To 3D or Not To 3D column, it was in the wake of Avatar, when it really did seem possible that the hokey old technology could be updated to not just make movies more expensive, but better. Unfortunately our first To 3D article was not about Avatar but Clash of the Titans, still the most egregious example of cheap post-conversion 3D being used to make a quick buck and actually damage the film in question. Since then 3D movies have been hit or miss, some succeeding and some making our eyes bleed, but there’s yet to be a real game-changer on the level of Avatar that makes a movie not just good in 3D, but necessary.
