Just wondering what your thoughts are on 3D films and television. Personally I am not crazy about 3D, I don’t feel like it adds anything to the experience. I haven’t seen one film that is improved by 3D. I find it more of a distraction than an improvement.

With the sole exception of Avatar (which amazed me and my dad in Imax 3D), I agree with you. I saw Tron in 3D and it just wasn't the same. I have since avoided all other releases in 3D.

Avatar did look good in 3D but Do you think it holds up to multiple 3D viewings. I feel like the novelty wore off quickly and now 3D is just a way to charge more for ticket sales.

One big, big downside of 3D for me is that I am one of the 12% of the population for whom it doesn't reliably work. The old red/blue 3D never worked worth a damn for me, and the polarized glasses only work about half the time for me. This translates into a sporadic experience and a huge headache -- an actual headache -- when the movie is over. So far, I've had the best experience with my home theater using the "active" glasses system. And at the end of the day, I find it merely OK. Apart from Avatar which was truly in a class by itself, I haven't found that 3D added anything significant to the experience. We've tried Life of Pi, Avengers, Monsters vs. Aliens, Up, The Hobbit, Cabin in the Woods and Green Lantern on the home system in 3D and they were all more trouble than they were worth.
