How much money do you actually waste on it if you don't mind me asking?

I find nothing creative or enjoyable about 3D.
It exists as a pitiful attempt to head off piracy and force audiences to watch films in overpriced multiplexes or on overpriced TV's IMO.

I think if you generally enjoy it then more power to ya but I personally can't stand it.

Cheap??? I wouldn't pay that I'm afraid. I generally shop in the €8-15 region for BluRays online unless it's something I really want and I certainly wouldn't pay any extra for 3D as I can't stand it! Anyway, enjoy the new TV.

I don't want to take this off topic but I take exception to that comment.

I think If 3D is to have a (creative) future, it's more than likely to be in the medium of computer games.
The interactivity of it seems perfect in the world of virtual reality.

But movies??
3D isn't and has never been the future of cinema.
It is, was, and always will be the past!

IMAX photography FTW

No disrespect to the OP, but 3D is just a gimmick imo. Although I admit, 3d video games sounds great!

3d movies are just an anti piracy move. When dust floating in the foreground of the frame becomes the focal point of the image, then its nothing more than gimmick, and distracting too.

Ive never seen anything on a 3D tv, so can I ask OP (and i bet you wont be biaised! ), how does it 'feel' when watching it? Obviously you have glasses on but unlike the cinema, the screen doesnt take up your whole field of vision. Does your peripheral vision not become a distraction??

Avatar in 3D was stunning, & Cameron always had 3D plans for that film. However many other films have 3D bolted in at the end, in a very poor & gimmicky way.

Moral of the story? The technology works very, very well when it's done correctly. Bolting it on at the end makes it look cheap & tacky. I'm speaking of passive 3D in the cinema only, I don't really see a use for it in the home cinema world (active glasses are expensive & fragile, viewing angle has to be right, etc etc). Games being the exception, Crysis 2 is apparently incredible on a proper 3d system.

So people who hate 3d just because it's 3d, are missing the whole point. It can add to films (Avatar, A Christmas Carol was also very well done) when done correctly, but yes, it can certainly detract too when the studio houses add 3d in to sell tickets instead.

I think its a lot better then gonging to the moves to look at 3D because the smaller TV will help a lot more on your eyes and things pooping out on you is really cool

Also you dont really fell the glasses on after a bit because you will get used to them very easy

The only thing i am finding hard is seeing if i turned of the glasses

But if you wont to see a 3D tv for real its very hard to test in a shop because you cant enjoy it as much as in your own siting room

I think 3d can take away from a film. I saw Toy Story 3 in 3d and in 2d and the colours are so much sharper in 2d.

I really don't like 3d because I have no interest in being 'in' the film. A story should be strong enough to draw you in without relying on cheap graphics. I don't really understand what the appeal of it is. Although I loved the visuals in Tron, I see that more like a video game than a film.

Having gone to see Avatar in both 3D and none 3D I felt it didn't add enough to the film to warrent the extra cost of the ticket. Sure it made the end battle scenes feel grander but over all it added little. The none 3D I found just if not more interesting as unlike most other 3D films that are filmed normally and the 3D effect added after, Avatar was shot in 3D so the colours in the none 3D edition were super intense as they are muted down by the 3D effect when you saw it in 3D.

My issue with the home 3D set up is that in the cinema I'm there to watch the film and do only that, when I watch films at home I'm usually doing at least 3 others things as well - I draw with the tv on, I clean, I'm online etc etc I would find it very annoying having to wear the glasses as I already wear glasses that I'm taking on and off when I'm drawing and it would just drive me nuts.

To date I've seen one scene in one film that made me go WOW with 3D and that was in Tangled, I've yet to be really impressed. I don't hate it I'm just not overly bothered. A tv/film screen is creating a sense of a 3D world on a flat surface already having it jump out from the screen...really? That adds to the film?

Whether you meant pooping or popping, it's still not cool!

I sincerely hope the 3D bubble bursts soon, but the prices on TVs are dropping and more and more people are taking the plunge and investing in them.

3D IMO adds NOTHING to film, causes more of a distraction and the effects can be headache inducingly bad at times. Most of the 3D Films out recently are not even proper stereoscopic 3D, but piss poor converts that make the films look like pop up books.

If it is done well, a la Avatar, it is impressive but the effect wore off after about 20 mins and it got annoying, went back to see it in 2D a day later and enjoyed it so much more. Also, it is impressive in cinema/theatre but I just dont understand the need for it at home.

Dear 3D films, please feck off and dont come back. Thanks.

If anyone can convince me 3D isn't entirely redundant, Herzog can. I shall reserve judgment (so far, negative although impressed by my brief go on a 3DS) until then.

The only things I've found that 3D added to films are a headache and a slight feeling of nausea.
