How long until 2-D movies are obsolete?

Almost every new major studio movie coming out is in 3-D. How long until 2-D flicks are a niche like vinyl records?

2D media will become obsolete just before the second coming of Jesus Christ. So, never.

3D is the niche, buddy, and all these shitty post-conversion jobs are doing a good job of turning people off to it already.

That latest PS3 firmware update added support for 3-D playback. So, that pretty much seals the deal, 2-D is now obsolete.

Re: How long until 2-D movies are obsolete?

Are you fucking kidding me? NEVER.

Let me tell you about it.

3D is an effect that attempts to immerse you in a world. Do you think people want to see a romantic comedy in 3D? No..why? There's no real reason why such a thing would need to be. Dramas don't need you to be immersed in the world. It's emotions developed thru the story that immerse you. NEVER the effect. IF it dies..it'll happen so far in the future that you'll be dead and worthless to care.

2D will never die. Film MIGHT die w/ the massive growth in develop for HD cams. But 2D will never die.

I can't believe that people are still watching movies WITHOUT Smell-O-Vision.

Time travel doesn't work that way!!!!


2D will go obsolete when movies go obsolete. Or when glasses-less 3D becomes amazing.
