[QUOTE=vlad] Prometheus? Even the best and most convincing immersive 3D experience could not have saved this humongous wreck
I personally liked the movie, altho I think Lindelof is a 1 trick pony and I wouldn't lose any sleep if he, orci and kurtzman all left Hollywood to become used cars salesmen.
Where you see Titanic and Lion King benefiting from 3D, I only see cow milking.[QUOTE=vlad]
And where many people see tattoo's as art and freedom of expression I only see scarring and stains. Yet, when I voiced this opinion I was chastised by many of a person on this forum for being against art and expression... and ironically is these same pro-art and pro-expression people who are so opposed to this medium.
Because articles like this are strictly designed to convince others to favor a particular opinion. We start off with a premise and it gets supported by a whopping 2 filmmakers who speak for everyone.
And we see it all the time.
And in large part, it works. Someone states that 3D is nothing but a gimmick... and before long you get a bunch of people repeating it to sound smart.
And what's funny about the "gimmick" thing, is that cinema is an entire gimmick all its own. It's an illusion of movement and mood created by the persistence of vision and manipulated by editing, trick lighting and color correction. It's all artificial.
Or the notion that 3D doesn't do anything to advance the story. Well, cinema used to be in Black and White. Did color by itself make stories better? For that matter ships on a string tell the same story as today's most advanced CGI.
But a little thought and reason doesn't stop people from taking a position based on incomplete thought.
Unlike 3D's detractors who want 3D gone so that people like me cannot enjoy it I am in favor of choice. I realize that not everyone likes the same thing- and that's fine. I'm just opposed to propaganda pieces like this.
I also understand that in Europe theater owners don't give you a choice- and I think it's up to you guys to convince the theater owners to put up additional screens for your choice. We don't have that problem in the states.
But as filmmakers adapt to this new medium I believe we'll see more and more of it.
