Re: 0848: "3D"

3d didn't work for me as a kid with the ViewMaster. I don't expect 3d movies to be worth my time.

What's sad is that we seem to be heading in the direction of "every movie will be 3d, 2d is dead". And they'll lose me as a customer. Not that I went to many movies anyway, but whatever.
