have you seen any movies in 3D?
do you think it's worth it to pay extra to see a movie in 3D?

I haven't.. sometimes I think I'm the only person in the world lol.. over here it is quite a lot more to go and see a 3D movie - and I can barely justify the expense of seeing a normal 2[??]D movie........

I've seen Tron and Pirates of the Caribean in 3d, I much prefer a 2d movie, 3d gives me a headache after a while.

Thank you jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Never seen one, but honestly, I think it's like the 80's and 90's craze, although probably better done. I think it will pass soon.

I sell TV's and video games for a living. I get to watch this stuff every day. I absolutely would NOT pay the extra in a movie theater. I won't buy a 3D TV.
I think 3D programming will remain as a niche market for a long while. Sony recently developed a gaming TV that takes advantage of the dual-screen effect of active-shutter 3D technology to create a 'fullscreen splitscreen' effect, where two people sitting side-by-side wearing 3D glasses are synced to different cycles in the TV's screen and seeing completely different graphics. Of all the different things created with 3D technology so far, this is my favorite. This is something I'd sit down and play with for a while. (This is something we'd BETTER get a display of in my store, or I will be very upset. Haha)
I don't think it will ever become 'the' thing to have, though. There are too many studies already about how damaging active-shutter 3D is to eye development. AS3D creates a much more realistic 3D experience than the passive-shutter programming that theaters and LG TV's use, but it's WAY more taxing on the eyes (and expensive!).

I have not and don't care if I ever do. Honestly if I croak right this very second my last thought won't be, "My God, I never got to see a 3D movie"

I have but I don't think it's anything special. It's fun for the kids though
