    The 3-D gimmick comes and goes. It won't last anymore than Treasure Trolls will.

    This. Hollywood likes to go through fads sometimes. They'll grow out of it. They've already grown out of their Tim Burton remake phase. Hell, I can already see that the vampire phase is starting to die a bit.

    Thank goodness for that. I was very suprised to see Shrek 4 made more than Eclipse, with all of the rabid, loonatic Team Edward and Jacob fans.

    As I've said, 2010 is their test year for 3-D, and it probably won't last. Most of the 3-D films have recieved mixed to negativereception - Airbender, Cats and Dogs, Clash of the Titans (of course there was Step Up 3-D, Despicable Me, Toy Story 3, How To Train your Dragon). And one of the highest acclaimed films of the year was in 2-D - Inception.

    It's a fad. It won't last. There'll probably be another fad when the second Avatar comes out, but it won't last either. Those who say by 2020 or so all films will be in 3-D, they're jumping to conclusions.

    I think people are being quick to judge the newer implementation of 3D as a fad. The technology and implementation has actually been making advancements recently and a lot of money is being spent to move this forward.

    Obviously 3D never really caught on when it was put to use decades ago but that is because the technology wasn't where it needed to be. This is a recurring theme throughout history. When tablet PCs were first introduced a decade ago there was an initial rush of interest and then it faded away. That's because the technology wasn't where it needed to be for the medium to be successful. Now, this year we have the iPad. Technology is finally caught up with the vision of the tablet. This fall there will be at least 25 new tablet designs on the market with the form factor of the iPad.

    I've only seen one film in 3d, toy story 3, I saw it in 2D and 3D and it makes no difference tot he story or experience so it's a pointless step. Also the only trailer in the 3d i thought was good was the sky one, all the others game me a headache apart from step up 3d which made me want to tear the screen with it being bad 3d and a crap film concept.

    3D isn't a fad.
    There are long term plans for the process.

    Television manufacturers are making 3D sets. Nintendo has made a 3D portable console that you don't need 3D glasses for.

    Somewhere down the line the two technologies will combine and we'll have TV's that are 3D all the time, like the big shark that attacked Marty in BTTF2.

    Yeah, you might try a 3D movie that actually used 3D in it's 3D presentation. It was a total waste on that movie as they did very VERY little with it. Same thing with Up.

    I can't speak for TS3, but UP definitely wasted its 3D.

    This is why I'm not particularly in favour of 3d becoming ubiquitous. You get directors who seem to have no real interest in using it to dramatic effect.

    I don't recall the 3d contributing a single 'wow' moment in the entire running time of UP. I don't recall audiences reaching out in front of them. At one stage I took off the glasses, and the depth in the scene was so shallow, that the two ghost images almost perfectly overlapped. I'm not going to argue on the faults and merits of the film, but if you're going to go 3D, really go for it.

    When people get together and start discussing that something is a fad is a good indicator that subject in question is not a fad.

    We had Tommy Gunn at our booth at AVN in 2009 promoting that video.
    He's a pretty cool guy, actually.
