Every year there are around five 3-dimensional films released to remind the world that this technology exists. These films are usually animated films, but also action films that we wished were in good old 2-D. It’s only May and 3-D has blasted its way onto a ridiculous amount of films.

Lets take quick look at some 3-D madness:

-A Christmas Carol (2009)
-Alice in Wonderland (2010)
-Avatar (2009)
-Clash of the Titans (2010)
Friday the 13th Part 2 in 3D (2010)
-Final Destination 4 (2009)
Halloween 3D (2010)
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2 (2010-2011)
-How to Train your Dragon (2010)
-Hubble 3D (2010)
-Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)
Jackass 3D (2010)
-Megamind (2010)
-Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)
Saw VII (2010)
-Shrek Forever After (2010)
Step Up: 3D (2010)
-Toy Story 3 (2010)
-Tron Legacy (2010)

There are also talks of re-releasing Star Wars, Jaws, and Hamlet in 3D!

Some of these I understand. Animation movies are easily connected with 3D and can bring the graphics that much more to life. So I’m in full support of Toy Story and Ice Age in 3D. I’ve also been told that Avatar is amazing in 3D (I’m one of millions that refuses to watch it), and Star Wars 3D just makes tons of sense.

Then..well then there are films like Hamlet, Halloween, Saw and Jackass that just make me wish 3D never became the big craze again. Halloween and half of that list (there were about 10-15 more for 2010, but I got tired of listing), are just abusing this old technology. It’s getting annoying.

Please movie world, only use 3D if it makes sense and adds to your story. If you’re just using it because you think its cool…its probably not.

Trust me if you have a good plot, 2D is enough. Then again, after watching the remake of the first Halloween, which was horrible horrible shit compared to the classic original, they really might need 3D to create an ounce of hype.



  1. If they release Hamlet in 3-D you will know where I’m at. And I don’t care if I catch pink eye.

    • Yeah I figured you would. That’s okay…if they put X-Files in 3-D I wouldn’t be complaining one bit I’m sure.
