Imagine my surprise at discovering that The Lion King, probably my favorite Disney movie, was playing at my local theater. My wife and I would love to one day take our daughter to see the Disney movies we grew up watching. They are certainly better than some of the other garbage being marketed to children these days. But we'd want her to see the movies we saw. This wasn't The Lion King, it was The Lion King 3D.
|Disney as I knew it|
|Disney's 3D Extravaganza!|
I have gone to great lengths in the past to explain that just because a movie is 3D doesn't mean it is somehow superior. So far only one movie has used 3D correctly, and it was
|Avatar... oh, wait...|
|Wow, Smurfette! Have you been working out?|
His entire film was planned to be a 3D experience from the get-go. Nowadays, thanks to the success of Avatar, just about everything imaginable is adding 3D effects during post production.
Hollywood, this does not work!
Wearing the 3D glasses reduces the amount of light that reaches your eye, so your precious film is now darker than it is supposed to be. There were entire moments in the tragedy that was Tron 2 and the respectable superhero movie, Thor, that I flat out could not see. It was just too dark.
I realize that it has been proven by a gigantic douchebag that there is money to be made by the torture, rape and murder of classic movies held in the highest regard by a die-hard fan base
|The aforementioned giant douchebag|
Disney intends to re-release Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and a few others in 3D by 2013.
You should boycott 3D movies that aren't The Hobbit or Avatar sequels.
You should punch George in his neck-fat.
You should admit that the prequels are terrible movies.
You should not badmouth the three Indiana Jones movies... (That's right, three. Go on... say something)
