THE LIST: 3D Overkill

We’re introducing a new weekly feature called THE LIST.  And you do NOT want to end up on THE LIST.  It is reserved for people or things that bug us so much we just can’t keep it to ourselves.   If you disagree with anything we post  feel free to leave  a comment telling us why we don’t know what we’re talking about.  And now for our first entry….

Stop making everything in 3-D!
Last week I was excited to see Seth Rogen in ‘The Green Hornet’, which is in 3D.   As I sat in the crowded theater and put on the uncomfortable 3D glasses, I wondered what awesome 3D effects awaited me.  The answer…none.  I really can’t see why the movie needed to be in 3D.  The only thing that it accomplished was adding a few dollars to my ticket price…….oh, I get it.   They’re just trying to squeeze a few extra dollars out of me.  The worst thing is,  ‘The Green Hornet’ isn’t the only movie guilty of this.  It’s an annoying  trend that needs to stop.    Not everything needs to be in 3D! And you shouldn’t be charging people extra for 3D technology. Star Wars, with it’s huge budget didn’t charge extra for having better effects than Crazy Heart.   Give us a break.

Boom! Roasted!

      Agreed. The coolest “3D” effect in the Green Hornet was the opening and closing credits. I heard Chris Nolan was being pushed by the producers to make “The Dark Knight Rises” in 3D. He thought about it, then said “not-gonna-do-er'” (in my best impression of Dana Carvey impersonating Geroge Bush Sr.). Good choice Nolan. Don’t do it just because everyone else is, and especially don’t do it for a few extra bucks per ticket. Cause that’s lame.

      P.S. Full disclosure though, I didn’t have to pay extra for my ticket to the Green Hornet because I went in to “The Season of The Witch” with Nicholas Cage at 3:15 knowing it would royally suck (because 9 out of 10 things that Nicholas Cage does in life (not just movies) royally sucks!) and I would sneak over to the 4:00 showing of “The Green Hornet”. Anyhow, it wasn’t difficult to do, even though it was on the other side of the theater, but everyone knows that University 6 security sucks. (Miss you Bub).

      P.P.S Top 3 movies with Nick Cage that don’t suck in ascending order:
      3. “Kick Ass”
      2. “Matchstick Men”
      1. “Raising Arizona”

      P.P.P.S Ray Greer and I saw a total of 5 movies that day. It was nothing short of epic.

      What about “National Treasure”? Did you hate it?
