What Is Your View On 3D Films

Being a horror buff, I took my best friend along to see Final Destination 4 last night in London, it was 3D and don't laugh but I have never seen a film in 3D before, mind you have there been many? Jaws is the only film that I can readily recall. Well I have to say it was an experience, having objects coming out at the screen at you, blood spurting out as though it's being catapulted right at you! Took a bit of getting used to I have to say You could almost touch some of the body parts that were being sliced, diced, hacked and blown apart, sorry if you are eating ;0) As to the film itself, did 3D make much of a difference? Well I would have gone to see the film anyhow it was just a shame that it was over so damn quickly! So what is your view on 3D films, I'd be interested to hear if there are any more 3D films out there, I still got the glasses, will they work when the film comes out on DVD? How many 3D films have you seen, and have you seen Final Destination 4? What did you think? Lots of new ingenious ways of dying, but I am sorry Final Destination 2 is the all time best out of all of them! And probably the most goriest! Shame they didn't do 3D on that film!

Sounds too scary for me. One advantage could be that I may be able to stay awake through an entire film. Or I could take my glasses off and just see blurry shapes, but that might be even more scary because I have a very vivid imagination. Don't think I'll try it.

Definitely NOT a film for the faint hearted. Nothing was left to the imagination!

I enjoy 3D films, yet mostly for the novelty factor. I must admit, having a film being shown in a 3D perspective can certainly add that extra level of entertainment. However, I fear that too many films are attempting to include 3D because of how popular it has grown in recent times. For example, several weeks ago, I took my younger Sister to the new Harry Potter film. Now, wanting to give her the best experience possible, I opted for the 3D version of the film. Now, me being in a rush, and forgetting to read the small print, I was horrified to discover that all of the first 15 minutes were shot in 3D, meaning I had paid double the price for a lousy 3D opening. I felt conned, and pray that other films won't repeat this in the future.

I didn't even realize that Harry Potter was shown in 3D but just as well, that definitely sounds like a rip off, mind you I have to admit that although I am a Harry Potter fanatic, I didn't enjoy the current film and it's certainly not as good as its predecessors. Could you imagine seeing all those spiders in 3D in the 3rd film I think if I remember rightly with Aragog that huge spider. Or seeing Nagini Voldemort's snake in 3D. Hmmm maybe not!

I'm not exactly the world's biggest Harry Potter fan, yet it's become a strange tradition for me to view every film the moment they are released in the cinema. And yes, I must agree with you, I too thought this film was lacking the "magic"(excuse the pun) of the previous installments. It just felt bland and pointless (except the end, which in my opinion, was a tad rushed). The prospect of admiring all the whimsical creatures of the Harry Potter series is certainly an exciting one indeed.

Hi ya wolfie34 I can't say I have seen much in 3D, just at amusement parks and stuff that are like 5-10 mins long. I find them a bit annnoying to be honest, thinking something is coming at me, I spend most of the time blinking for the fear of being poked in the eye!! I think horror films would be exellent in 3D for horror film fanatics, not me though, I don't enjoy films like that but think it would give much pleasure to an audience that appreciates that sort of thing. I think there was a 3D version of Ice Age 3 if that floats your boat!!

Hello my friend! Yeah and I bet you pay through the nose for those 5-10 mins! I have to admit I still haven't seen Ice Age 2! I know I am slow, I am sure it must be due on tv soon, sometime, but I won't rush out to see the 3D one. I like to watch them in sequence although I dare say for Ice Age it wouldn't really matter. I bet they still charge me for 3D glasses even though I kept my pair from Final Destination. That is a right rip off I am sure you agree as well. I think the next time I'll be going to the cinema is to see Harry Potter (2010), now that would be superb in 3D!

You know. that is one thing that I've never done. I've never seen a 3D film in my life and I'm dying to see one. The movie, 'The Final Destination' is in 3D. I would love to see that one. I loved the other Final Destination movies. I hope I get to see one VERY soon! Do you have to wear those goggles? Purrs, Catwoman==^..^= & Mija

Yes my friend you have to wear the goggles, I hope you get to see it! I am real hoping that that is not the end of the FD films. There are still more ideas out there, so fingers crossed for FD5 x

I am a huge horror buff too wolfie! I even watch the corney ones..lol... I have been wanting to go see that Final Destination 4! It has been forever since I saw a movie in 3-D. I think the last one I saw was a Friday the 13th. It may have even been a Nightmare on Elm Street that I saw last in 3-D. There are a million of those movies made and I can't remember which it was. I like the Final Destinations and I can't wait to see this one.

Actually I haven't watched 3D movies for quite a long time. I haven't watched the 3D movie you mentioned. In my childhood, TV ever played a 3D cartoon series and I also had the glasses. But I didn't think it worked very well. Last time I planned to watch it with my son, but the movie tickets were sold out. I was so surprised to it and this is very disappointing. As to 3D movies, you remind me of "4D" movie two years ago when my husband and I had a good time in the amusement park. We watched a "4D" movie there. At first I didn't know what "4D" is. I understood it until there was something touched me from my seat. And sometimes there would be real bubbles when you watched this 4D movie. It's an adventure movie about dinosaurs. So besides the vision effect, something real would appear nearby you now and then. Such as the shaking seats, real bubbles, real water etc. It's very interesting. I love China

I've seen a few, but they are all kids movies. It's kind of cool but I can take it or leave it. Then again, I could see how a good space thriller might be really exciting with 3D...

I have seen three so far. It was fun but I am not making plans to see another one as of yet. I do have many regular movies that I would love to see. I would like to see the new Sandra Bullock movie.!

In my country, it's very luxuriously to see 3D films. Because this is a kind rarely for watching. I have had one time to see this kind. And it's the last time I watched that. Because it's too expensive in my life.
