I can't be arsed to see it again, I enjoyed it the once but I personally think that's all it's worth really. I might watch it in the future when we've all got 3D TVs and enough time has passed to make another viewing worthwhile.

I have an Unlimited cinema card, so I dont really pay to see it again (well £1.30 acctually for 3D), if I had to shell out £10 then no way I would have seen it more than once even haha

Thanks for your usual useless patronising reply. Was it shown in anyone's area on this forum? Clearer?

Re-released for 2 minutes it seems, none of my local cinemas showed it. I guess it was only for a week or so nationally. It always seemed like it was way to early for a re-release to me.

I was planning to see it too :(. Oh well. It's not one I'd rush to see in 2D now. It's obviously the store that comes first but as the story never appealed (and still doesn't), it was all about the 3D but I just couldn't bring myself to spend a tenner when it was out.

Any news on another film to break 3D ground? Something with a better story this time please.

Thanks Romero.

The ONLY film to do 3D as good as, or better than Avatar is Resident Evil 4, but hey you wont be getting "Story" the Oscars will be troubled with. Most are shite and not worth seeing in 3D still, as its done wrong, cheap, hardly used or just doesn't work.

Cheers. I'd imagine Resident Evil 4 just happens to be the best of a bad bunch, instead of pushing the boundaries ala Avatar.

If you have an IMAX nearby it'll probably still be showing there.

Hey one of the best films of the year Toy Story 3 is 3D :D hey they had the budget and time to make that 3D blow our minds, but for some reason just kind of left it calm and quiet, most of the time you never knew it was even 3D. I would be angry if I had paid £10 to see it in 3D like most people have to - loved the film, but if you don't bother putting massive in the effort into 3D it seems a little wasted.

Still nothing beats Piranha 3D :rage: I am still angry over that joke 3D weeks later. If you saw that 3D as your first experience, you would never want to see another.

I liked the fact Pixar didn't make Toy Story 3 into some gimmicky in-your-face 3D thing, they just used it to immerse you a bit more.

That is kind of what Avatar did, but Avatar did it 100 times better.

Sadly not. The nearest one is Cardiff for me, there used to be one in Bristol but it closed down.

Kermode thought the exact same thing.

I know what you mean, it wasnt in your face which was good in a way but it made me think I'd rather have saved money and seen it in 2D.

My cinema's the same price for 2D & 3D so that kind of thing doesn't come into it for me luckily.

It's like £6.50 I think, and about a quid to buy the glasses.

Not really. I've not listened to his podcast for a couple of months now. I am a fan though. I just remember him agreeing.
gasteropod wrote:It's like £6.50 I think, and about a quid to buy the glasses.
So it's not the same price then? Do yo have to buy the glasses again each time?

For me it's £8.50 and about £1.50 for the glasses but the bitch bit is, you're welcome to re-use them but have to pay the extra £1.50 regardless on whether you want the glasses or not. This seems to be the norm. Kermode's moaned about it loads. Why should we pay for glasses, even if we don't want them?

The film's the same price for me but you end up paying extra for a 3D film, due to the glasses.
