STOP MAKING 3-D movies!
I do not like the 3-D movie craze. It is a neat effect for about five minutes and then it just gets annoying. This is not a new thing, why do they keep trying to bring it back. It gives me a headache.
This is probably the third time around for 3-D. Hopefully three strikes and 3-D is out. There was 3-D in the fifties with really annoying cardboard glasses.
I saw “The Creature From the Black Lagoon” in 3-D. The creature was extra scary when he reached out right in your face…otherwise…eh.
I saw “The House of Wax” in 3-D. There was one scene with a carney dude whacking on of those paddle ball on a rubber band things right out at the audience. That was really cool…but…
That is the thing with 3-D, instead of concentrating on making a good movie; they have to work-in cool 3-D effects, usually to the detriment of the story. The 3-D thing becomes distracting. It is strangely unrealistic. Mrs. Cranky has a thing about glasses. They bother the bridge of her nose. She holds the glasses up to her eyes by hand for the entire movie. Why do we have to watch a movie with special goofy glasses?
Three-D movies failed in the 50’s and 60’s. Three-D comics were a flop. There have been 3-D cameras…yawn. Three-D TV is not catching on, why do they keep making movies in 3-D?
I just heard they are going to put out a 3-D version of “The Wizard of Oz” to commemorate the 75th anniversary of that film. This is Mrs. Cranky’s favorite movie so I will have to see it…damn. Now my flying monkey nightmares will be in 3-D. How much better will “The Wizard of Oz” be with this special effect? Will the dude that hung himself be swinging in 3-D?
Please Hollywood…stop the 3-D. It is annoying, it is not realistic, and it is more of a distraction than it is an attraction.
