It seems to me that there is a drive to make more movies in the 3D format or even restore old movies in 3D. I saw "The Lion King" in 3D and I recently saw previews for "Titanic" in 3D. Personally, I hope it's a passing fad, like it was in the 1950s.
While I think 3D is fine if one is at an IMAX theater at a science museum or at Disneyworld where the intent is to make dinosaurs or Donald Duck pop out of the screen, I don't think as that sort of thing as the stuff of "real" drama or cinema.
I can't imagine why anyone would want to see "Citizen Cane" or "Casablanca" in 3D. Indeed, when I go to see a 3D movie, I usually think it's "cool" for about the first ten minutes, then I'm more interested in the story and by that time it seems as though the novelty of 3D has become a distraction.
What say you?
