I hate it too! Ebert has pretty much summed things up correctly. One thing he missed though is that, at least for me, after the first 30 minutes or so, my brain just adapts and accepts the "3Dness" as just regular old imagery. By the end, I canĂ?'t say that I even notice the "3D" and can't wait to get those frigging classes off my head. Think about it, when have you ever thought back about a movie and said, "Oh do you remember how 3D it was and when that rock came flying at the screen?" All I ever remember is the story, acting, music, and visuals. The 3D doesn't seem to stick in my memory or influence how much I like the movie at all. In fact, I would say that if you remember the 3D effect, it must have been used in a gimmicky fashion, and that is just distracting.

I was looking at going to How to Train a Dragon or whatever it's called, and the morning showing in an IMAX 3D theater was $13 per person (same for kids!)!!! That's $52 for a family of 4 for a 1.5 hour kids' movie. That's insane!! The 3D version wasn't much better at $11. And I bet prices are higher in other cities. What the heck? This isn't making more people go to the movies. Most people buy that overly priced food there as well, so you're at close to $100 to see a cartoon??? WTH??? This is madness I say!
