What you said makes sense. I don't think 3d is going away.

I agree, I don't think 3D will go away either.

People said the same thing years ago about HDTV, remember the arguments about how EDTV was just as good as HDTV?

99% of what Hollywood turns out these days is crap! Doesn't matter if it's 3D or not.

The original article here made my day. I hate watching movies in 3D, but I end up watching them in 3D anyway, because it can be hard finding a 2D version available when I want to watch a movie. If 3D becomes a fad with only a couple of 3D movies released each year, then that would suit me just fine.

Personal story about Cats and Dogs in 3D. I go to my local theatre to watch the movie, and find out it is in 3D. I am thinking in my head - this movie isn't going to be that great, and if it is in 3D I really don't even want to watch the movie. And pay more for it? But I really wanted to watch a movie to kill some time. So I end up driving 30 minutes to a larger theatre, find a 2D version playing, and watch it there.

This is a common matter; when something becomes very used and popular the interest of the people decreases.

Too bad that they only want to go with the trend and make 3D movies because is in step with the fashion.
Anyway, i think i'll like it because it has dogs.

Here is an article about the future of 3D and gaming:

http://www.gamespot.com/features/627...ks%3Btitle%3B5

I especially loved the intro to the article:
At a panel discussion during this year’s QuakeCon, Bethesda lead designer Emil Pagliarulo was asked his thoughts on 3D gaming. His unexpected reply brought the house down. "I f****** hate 3D," he said. "I think it's a gimmick and I hope it dies."

I don't think it matters what hollywood is doing, this 3d thing has other markets , gaming and as someone said movies made for tv. And who knows what else will come along. I laugh everytime a new technology come out , theres always the doom sayers and history proves your wrong more times then your right. The format war was the most resent thing that happen. Go back and read the threads,you'll find blu-ray didn't stand a chance, because they wern't ready with there 1.1 and 2.0 profiles,who won that war? DOESN'T matter how they won it, they won it. AS its been pointed out before the whole industy is behind 3d, chances are it will prival

What I find interesting about 3D is that some view it as a regression (myself included). For Blu-ray, some said they couldn't tell the difference, others that a competing technology (HD-DVD) was better, but I never heard anyone say they would prefer DVD regardless of price. With 3D, you hear that from some. I will be very curious to see how 3D evolves over the next 10 years. Maybe they come to dominate the market anyways, or maybe it is just a fad that peters out. I am curious to see.
