Is still crappy in 3D. But atleast it costs more and you have to wear stupid weiner glasses.

Took the Riddlenettes to see Star Wars Ep 1. Still below average and the 3D was meh.

Say what you will... Darth Maul is still pretty cool. But, the 3D was pretty meh. Except when the battle droids walk through the Gungan shield, I thought that looked pretty awesome.

My condolences. A whole extra dimension of Jar Jar: the very thought could be marketed as an appetite suppressant. gulp

Neither has George Lucas. I guess thats why he just drops his "buisness" on the big screen now a days.

I want to see the original trilogy in theaters again... even if there is more Lucas junk spliced in. But I do not want to see them in 3D, at all.

The Phantom Menace wasn't that bad.

Then again, I'd already had all my illusions destroyed by Revenge of the Ewoks when I was 13 anyway.....

....So my expectations weren't all that high to begin with.

But yes, I don't get the idea of watching a 2d movie in 3d.

Roger Ebert just recently saw Titanic in the new 3d release, and here is what he had to say about it.

Quote:
Now for the final flaw. It is, of course, the 3D process. Cameron has justly been praised for being one of the few directors to use 3D usefully, in "Avatar." But "Titanic" was not shot for 3D, and just as you cannot gild a pig, you cannot make 2D into 3D. What you can do, and he tries to do it well, is find certain scenes that you can present as having planes of focus in foreground, middle and distance. So what? Did you miss any dimensions the first time you saw "Titanic?" No matter how long Cameron took to do it, no matter how much he spent, this is retrofitted 2D. Case closed.

But not quite. There's more to it than that. 3D causes a noticeable loss in the brightness coming from the screen. Some say as much as 20 percent. If you saw an ordinary film dimmed that much, you might complain to the management. Here you're supposed to be grateful you had the opportunity to pay a surcharge for this defacement. If you're alert to it, you'll notice that many shots and sequences in this version are not in 3D at all, but remain in 2D. If you take off your glasses, they'll pop off the screen with dramatically improved brightness. I know why the film is in 3D. It's to justify the extra charge. That's a shabby way to treat a masterpiece.

It features one of the all-time great scenes - the Darth Maul light sabre duel - so I'll give you that.

It also inspired a great [apparently] game that is beloved here on BGG.

Otherwise, it was f**king dire!
