    I found the 3D in Tron Legacy to be really underwhelming actually. I hardly noticed it.

    Ill be watching this in 2D and if i go to a second screening it be 3D/IMAX

    But i personally believe 3D is really not important in movies. Why was Avatar very succesful again? because it used 3D? or used motion capture tech to make the blue aliens realistic? i forgot.

    Both, really.

    However, it was Pandora itself that really sold people. It was so engrossing and some were so immersed, that they actually became depressed and suicidal when they realized our real world isn't anything like the planet he created for Avatar.

    Granted, that problem lies more with the people watching it than those producing it, but still, it was impressive work.

    The visuals, more than anything, were what sold Avatar. The story was a thin retread of Dances With Wolves, and bored me to tears.

    This.
    Although i'm not really a fan of 3-D, the positive feedback from some people about the 3-D effects is starting to change my mind. Now if only I could find one of those robot cinemasks, then i'll be all set!

    I think I can now rest peacefully, one big giant sleep from now until the 29th, and wake up with no worries about how awesome this is really going to be :)

    I would disagree. The 3D in Avatar was impressive, but many MANY people only saw it in 2D - what hit home with the audience was the combination of fantastic visual effects creating a believable - and photo realistic - alien world, and a story they could identify with.

    Obviously the main thrust of the Avatar storyline is a mish-mash of things we've all seen before (in the west at least) but that didn't damage it's ability to resonate with a world wide audience of very mixed age groups.

    It's great to hear positive reaction to the general look of the upcoming TF film, but I'd be more excited if people were praising the screenplay or discussing how fun the characters of the Transformers were.

    If only there was a way to promote a 3D movie by saying "this shit was actually shot in 3D, not post converted". The difference is night and day, and like 90% of the 3D movies out there are post converted and people are misinterpreting this as a true representation of what 3D can look like. The best example of 3D is in video games and CG movies because adding a second camera for depth is easier than taking one into daily shoots. MB shot this in 3D. Even if you are apprehensive about watching it on 3D because Thor just looked okay, you should definitely see this at least once in 3D. There will be a huge difference.

    THIS. Convincing people that a film is "true" 3D could help sway a large percentage.

    3D can be important, and if it's to be taken seriously it should be considered important. The problem so far with nearly all 3D films is that it's considered--or at least treated as--a gimmick and not an actual artistic tool or even a medium.

    What made Avatar so great was two factors. The first was that it was filmed using 3D cameras as opposed to post-production. I can't think of a single film that was converted to 3D after being shot normally that was any good at all. I liked some of the 3D in Resident Evil: Afterlife, but it still suffered from the same issue that makes up my second point; that most films use 3D as a gimmick to make certain visual elements pop out of the screen. With Avatar, the film was planned so that there was always this sense of depth in every shot. It helped provide a sense of 3-dimensional space between characters within environments. As much as I liked the latest Pirates of the Caribbean entry, seeing a sword pop out of the screen in fuzzy, unfocussed 3D is not worth an extra $10 as it does not help make the film any more exciting, and all it did was pull me out of the movie. 3D that's integrated well should be seamless, like good CGI. You know it's there, but it's done so well that you don't actively think about it. So far, Avatar is the only film that has managed to accomplish that for me.

    I'm excited for Transformers 3 because I get the sense that the 3D is going to be treated seriously. If it had James Cameron excited about it, then I am too.

    Michael Bay's stories have never been all that fascinating. In fact his biggest issue is that his human element in films comes across as very shallow and predictable. I can't think of a single James Cameron film that has been action-oriented but didn't at least have a strong human element. Avatar wasn't the best example of this, granted, but I still cared enough about the characters involved. All I really care for in Transformers are the actual robots. (Though I do enjoy Sam, Lennox and co. I just don't have a huge attachment to them).
