Which ad said that which movie was 'built for the 3D experience'? Avatar I'd believe, since that was good 3D. From what I've seen of I, Robot on a Fox 3D demo disc (Take The 3D Journey), it's very much dissapointing, since the 3D is only apparent on a few shots. If I, Robot was advertised as being 'built for the 3D experience', then there's a chance this may turn people off 3D, since they may be expecing good levels of 3D, not a movie that sparingly uses 3D.

It isnt dying at all. Most people who havent adapted yet are ones who didnt deem it worthy to upgrade from HD to 3D which I understand. But it will keep picking up steam.

Good to see some of you took it seriously... I love reading a good, ignorant post. Just thought I'd try my hand at creating one!

I think the misunderstood beauty of 3D is that it's only an option. Not every has to like it. Some will not see the point of it. Which is, it's a feature that can be enjoyed when you need it. You never know when the next Avatar is coming out or that one 3D blockbuster that's just a joy to watch in 3D.

And with upcoming 3D titles like this to look forward to, I'm glad I have that option.

This is the crux of it. I've never understood why people get bent out of shape when 3D TVs are the "only option" at the store... they didn't complain when manufacturers started including features like zoom, sharpening, noise reduction, hue/saturation adjustment, PIP...

Amen to that. When I bought my 3D TV about a year and a half ago they had the same exact TV just without the 3D option for $80 less. For $80 more I said, "why the hell not." Now I own close to 50 3D movies

The problem with 3D is that it's still too inconsistant. You get some movies that are jaw dropping like Avatar (watched the other night) and then Transformers 3 (last night). I didn't like the 3D in T3 at all ! Too dim and fuzzy. Then I put Avatar back in the player and was wow'd once again. The crappy ones (and there are too many) is what is turning people off. I was one of these people.

Even the 3D rating system is very inconsistent....I find wildly varying perceptions even among different 3D fans! Go figure....

People have to realize that 3D is not meant to donminate and replace 2D, it's not feasable. But what it can do is becoming a fun way to watch a select genre of movies in the theater and then have a similiar experience in your own home.

It is inconsistent, just like anything else. You can go buy a slice of bread and each vendor does it different. It's not going to be the same. Not every studio has the $$$ to do something on the level of Avatar. Some have bigger budgets and some have better technicians. And I'm cool with that. Some people think Prometheus has very good 3D, while I don't really think it's all that. So personal taste plays a role to. I liked the 3D in Avengers, but not to thrilled with the 3D in Spiderman. And that's fine, I'm cool with that. Not everyone makes the A-list. As long as there are a few good exceptional 3D movies being released here and there, then I can appreciate the technology of when it's done right.

With anything else, it takes time. 3D has improved. If you watch an older 3D movie, versus a current 3D movie, sometimes you can see the advancement in the technology. We are on the crust of this IMO, it's just getting started. And I'm just glad we have that option to view at home for when there is a 3D movies that comes out, that a studio had the time, money, and experience, that we can view it at home and enjoy it like we did in the theater. There will be another movie that rivals Avatars 3D success. Avatar made to much money at the theaters for it not to. When done right, 3D is a beautiful experience. You look at the potential of 3D and I don't think we have reached the point of "what it can be". Avatar was great, but there is more to be had. Just hold tight, and get your 3D equipment ready. The ride hasn't even started yet.
