The 3D Movie Revolution

Saw quite an interesting article about 3D movies, how they're made and the differing reactions to them over at the BBC website today.

Personally I think very few of the 3D movies I've seen in the last few years have really been worth it. Avatar's 3D effects impressed my wife but I didn't find them much good - though I saw it in 2D, some people have told me that Clash of the Titans actually looked worse in 3D - and the only movie I particularly remember enjoying the 3D effects on was Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

Then there's the extra cost, of course - going to the cinema is expensive enough as it is, without the added couple of quid to see exactly the same thing with unimpressive 3D effects. I've pretty much decided that I'm not going to bother with 3D movies (as long as they continue to be released as 2D simultaneously, anyway).

So what do you all think? Is 3D going to fade away like it did last time it enjoyed a brief flurry of popularity a couple of decades back, or is it here to stay - and if the latter, do you think it's a good thing?
