I was on vacation a little over a month ago, and I wanted to see a movie with Sara. It took us the entirety of my two-week vacation from Iraq, but we finally headed to the movies. She couldn’t help but laugh when we pulled up the theater to check movie times and I let out a long, loud moan.
All of the movies were in 3D.
I hate 3D.
If I wanted to strain my eyes or give myself vertigo, I’d try to read a book in the dark on the spinning tea-cup ride at the fair.
It’s bad enough that I had to suffer through 3D when watching Thor. To top it all off, it was bad 3D. You see, there is good 3D, with very few movies making that cut. Then there is bad 3D, which is everything else. Everything else is filmed using normal means, and then the 3D effect is added later.
From a distance, I read that 3D television screens are coming out across the country. I will never purchase one, because I want to throw up every time I watch something in three-dimensional format. I wonder how long it will take before people realize that it’s all a fad?
Probably after they’ve bought a 3D television to keep up with the Jones’, only to get a bad case of buyers remorse.
I refuse to watch another 3D movie. We live in a capitalistic society, and I will not allow my votes (dollars) to be cast on entertainment options that make me want to claw my own eyes out.
I guess that’s why I was never into acid.
