    It isn’t just the (mostly) blind who would prefer non-3D showings. Most 3D is crap and adds little to the viewing experience except a lighter wallet.

      No argument there. Also, there’s a rather large chunk of the population for whom 3D causes nasty motion sickness.

    3D gives me a terrible migraine, so I feel you! I guess our age of having to have the most technologically advanced things possible is finally catching up with real life.

    There are 2D glasses available at ThinkGeek for those of us who get migraines/motion sickness, but I don’t know if it would help you. Here’s a link. (Forgive me for being too lazy to format; I’m having a rough day.)

      It won’t help me out because I only see out of one eye and the 2D glasses are still reliant upon vision out of two eyes – but for those with binocular vision it would probably be useful.
      I do hope your day improves – no need to apologize!

        I’m new to the blog, so I was unaware that you are partially blind! I apologize again. Probably doing so too much, and I realize that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Thanks! It seems to have done.

        No worries! I should have made it clear for new readers within the text. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re interacting in the comments and reading, so no apologies are necessary!

    I absolutely loathe 3D! I always take the 2D option if it’s available, and I resent it when only the 3D version is released.
    This crap isn’t even 3D, it’s 3D-like effects added by computer after filming is completed using the same filming as is done for 2D. At least the (equally objectionable) 3D of the pre 21st century filming was really 3D. Junk like Clash of the Titans is not.
    3D will NOT become the norm, either for films or for TV, no matter how much producers want it to, as it’s an excuse to jack up prices. Too many people hate it , and those who actually like it are too often disappointed by non 3D films pretending to be 3D via [post production added computer effects. This fad will burn itself out, just like it has several times over the last few decades of film making
