Have 3-D movies improved that much over the last couple of years?
Admittedly, I haven't seen Avatar
or Toystory 3
in 3-D (only 2-D). The only 3-D stuff i've seen is Captain EO
, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
and the Bug's Life thingy; all at Disneyland. Well... and the little scene from Family Guy: Blue Harvest
. Though reallyI tend to avoid 3-D movies. It's not because of of the price of tickets.
It never seems to really work as true three dimensions. It always feels like 2-D bits stacked up on one another, and i never really notice any type of parallax. When something is supposed to "jump out" at you or seem very close, it always splits into images when I'm watching it. It all becomes rather distracting. People have told me that because I have astigmatism, 3-D won't look as good at the movies.
The best film I've seen in "3-D" was Titanic back in '97. The theater was so crowded, the only place to sit was in the front row and all the way to one side. (Spoilers
)When that ship started tilting as it sank, along with the harsh angle of the screen, I kept getting a slight feeling of vertigo. It was kind of cool really.
I digress though, the thing is- it has been a while. Did anyone ever have the same vision discrepancies with 3-D before, and now 3-D has improved over the last couple of years so that it looks better?
I will most likely go to see this version of Ep. I. My son will like it and I am curious to see how the 3-D will turn out.
