There are too many 3D movies these days. They gained mass popularity in 2009, most notably with “Avatar” which went on to become to #1 movie of all time. There were moments last year where there would not be any 3D movies in release. Right now it is hard to imagine a period of time where there are no fewer than two 3D movies playing at your local movie theater. After “Avatar” movie studios decided to “cash in” on the new technology and convert many of the 2D movies they already had completed shooting and make them into 3D. The result has been less than stellar. If you take a look at movies as “Clash of the Titans” and most recently, “The Last Airbender” you would see the underwhelming results (it is not recommended that you do). These movies are not worth paying the extra money you are charged to see a 3D movies (and often not worth seeing at all!).
On the flip side of all this, there are some movies that are not only worth seeing, they absolutely must be experienced in 3D! The newest movie to fall into this category is “Despicable Me”. Not only is the movie a great time in the theater for people of all ages; but, it is definitely worth the extra money to see it in 3D.
