The MPAA can firmly stick this up their ass.

No Shit. Maybe it has something to do that a 3D movie's ticket price is 3x that of a regular old movie.

Sorry, Hollywood. In this age, I can recreate the theater experience in my very own home without someone kicking my seat or talking non-stop. I can even recreate the 3D experience if I was so inclined, but I don't want to don accessories just to watch a movie. It's a fad - has been for decades (despite the 3D effect being much more impressive, it's still a fad.)

Don't forget that only Avatar was truly intended to be 3D. The other movies were already made and then converted to 3D post production after the success of Avatar.

 So to those who say the 3D quality wasn't great (AIW), remember to differentiate if the movie was originally intended to be 3D or not.

I think it's a fad that'll die out soon. I tried Avatar in 3D, and it was okay, but I don't think I'll ever see another 3D movie again. People are just experimenting with seeing a film in 3D, but I think it's going to fade in popularity, especially with the prices rising.

I am not a huge fan either.  It is alright, but I prefer 2D movies

Avatar was well worth the price bump to see in 3D although I am sorry to say Alice was not. I defanitly could have dealt with seeing Alice in a normal theater. I will probably try another 3D movie sometime soon and if I am not impressed with it as much as Avatar it will be a while before I put down the extra cash to watch a 3D movie.
