Quoted from John_I:
That sux. I wish 3D would just die.
Quoted from benheck:
Operating a 3D camera requires extra work for the expensive union crews on a movie. It's cheaper to hire a sweat farm in India to rotoscope after the fact.
Interesting to see how there was a peak of "real 3D" a few years after Avatar, but now it's almost all entirely fake.
Fake 3D can still be good. Especially with sci-fi and super hero movies. These types of movies have so much CGI post production effects content they could almost be classified as animated films. Converting these types of effects heavy films to 3D in post can produce spectacular results since all the individual source elements are usually available. Good recent rxamples are Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and Dr Strange, all "fake" 3D but look amazing on 3D bluray.
Even though I love 3D I will rarely see it at the theater because most theaters have the brightness cranked down (extends the bulb life and save theaters money) so its not usually worth the extra money.
My home theater projector setup with active glasses looks way better than the 3D than my local cineplex. IMAX 3D looks better than regular theaters but itsexpensive. I'll just wait and buy the 3D bluray for just a little more than the price of a single IMAX ticket.
I find 2K 3D blurays are more immersive than 4K for home viewing. Unfortunately the home video business has dumped home 3D and is pushing people to buy new 4K TV's, new 4K bluray players and re-buy movies in 4K to keep the money coming in.
And I liked Solo. Can't wait for the 3D bluray.
