I find 3D to be a downgrade, not an upgrade lol

Wait what? Its CGI heavy?!?! Are you kidding me? Seriously? They're not using real dinosaurs? Thats ridicolous. Voting cold

Use the code to upgrade to VIP seats for a 2D showing instead.

Good but already booked long ago for Imax 3d

Why are film studios still persisting on releasing in 3D, I thought it had died a death (again)?

Case in point, less and less new TVs on sale today are supporting 3D.

All TV manufacturers have officially stopped producing 3D TV 's but film studio's are going to continue making 3D for cinema release, apparently home 3d has officially failed to take off due to things like heavy gasses/to many glasses needed and unsociable all sitting with glasses on!

It's a customer option. If it's solely released in 3d then you have a valid complaint. Cineworld for example has invested heavily recently with 3d and Imax so the demand must still be there

Same
Annoyingly TV technology has just reached a stage where it could provide a drastically improved 3D experience.
We've got the resolution, panel brightness, HDMI bandwidth and refresh rates and everybody decides to drop it!

I reckon 3D will make a comeback but they need to undo the damage they've caused.

Many films in cinema are released in 3D and 2D. It hasn't died a death and never did.

3D TV is hardly comparable to a cinema experience.
Does this work when combined with movie money ecode tickets?

of course the dinosaurs are CGI but from what Ive seen of the trailers the background details look like they are often not computer generated apart from obviously the exploding volcano

hence I said fairly heavily CGI laden but not excessively so

in my experience 3D is most effective when *most* (including background details) or all of what you see on the screen is CGI for as much of the movie as possible

BTW i suggest you try getting out of bed the right side next time as it sounds like you could pick a fight in an empty room

"heavy gasses" that's 4D smellorama isn't it?
I think 3D TV is great and I'm not upgrading my TV to 4k as I don't want to lose the 3D. If Sky drop 3D (there is less and less added now) then I might consider in the future.

4K is miles better than 3D
Went to see Guardians of the Galaxy bot in lieMax and 3D. The 3D version was immersive, full of colour, depth and detail however the 2d version was flat with depth produced by blurring the background so detail was lost and just not as immersive. The penalty for a better showing? Wearing a pair of lightweight 3D glasses. No one was looking to see if they were trendy or went with my outfit. I just forgot about them in seconds and enjoyed the experience. Ps I purchased the last 3D model tv produced by LG which upscales 3D to ultra, uses same lightweight glasses as cinema and the 3D is amazing. Movies like Mad Max fury road and others in 3D and Dolby atmos at home as sensational.

No, I just used it for a booking of 2, and it upgraded both seats.
The only movie I've found to be worth paying a 3D premium for was Jaws!

All manufacturers have stopped. No they haven't.
Heavy glasses. Plastic is insanely heavy yes.
Wearing glasses is 'unsociable' All my glass wearing friends have to stay at home when we go out. It's a shame but we can't have them mixing with us 20 20 folk and bringing us down.
No thanks. I'll stick to front row, and leave the grazing mouth breathing riff raff behind me in their sweat inducing leathery seats.

I upgraded to a 4k UHD TV which also has 3D and bought a UHD disc player which supports 3D - and it didn't cost the earth either

I have to disagree. For me 4k is marginally better than HD. Nowhere near the difference between SD and HD.

And a good 3D movie is an awesome experience and certainly VERY noticeably different as compared with 2D, so for me, 3D IS better than 4K, but they're both good.
Can this be redeemed online?

Nah you were right with your original belief. They are real. (cough cough)
Most films are converted to 3D post-production. And that's where the problem lies in my opinion. Some do a good job, some don't. That's why I check to see if a film is worth seeing in 3D. I guess filming in 3D from the start is too expensive for studios.
I'm sure I saw this film like 2yrs ago?!?! Why is it still in the cinema?

Well I actually seen it said on the news on TV (not in the Sun!) that all manufacturers have stopped supporting 3d TV so that's all I'm going by.
Google it!
No more 3d TV
+ some manufacturers 3d glasses are heavy or have you tried every type? And you know I mean every one sitting round in dark 3d glasses...

It so happens that the sequel to Jurassic World is Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, so I could see where the confusion may be especially when I don't think anyone has mentioned Fallen Kingdom in this thread.

Many films? Hardly any you mean! A single digit number so far this year according to:

3D releases in 2018

I was talking about the days of red and green 3D glasses, so my point was valid.

They're using quite a lot of puppetry in this one rather than CGI so it might not be as CGI heavy as you think. The first Jurassic Park only had about 12 minutes of CGI I think.

Sorry, I was overzealous with the word 'many'. I apologise. However, you said it died a death. Obviously, it hasn't. You even provided your own data to back that up, thanks. Not every movie in the cinema is going to be suitable or popular for 3D, so obviously not every movie will be released in 3D format.

Your original point was to suggest 3D had died a death, strangely mentioning TV and and cinema. It has not, and never did die a death in the cinemas. TV on the other hand as far as I'm aware tried 3D but it never really took off and indeed died a death, as you'd put it.

Perhaps if you are trying to make a point about red and green glasses, you should maybe mention "red and green glasses". It may help.

Take care.

No need to apologise, I was only looking for a fairer appraisal of my statement!

I would hope most people would be intelligent enough to know what I meant without me having to spell it out (something I no doubt would have been criticised for had I done so!). But thank you for the feedback, I will take it on board.

Die a death can also mean to be a failure. I wasn't implying 3D had gone from cinemas completely as obviously that's not true, but if it had been a success then surely more films would be offered in the format currently?
I personally dislike it as I feel it makes the picture darker (cinema dependant obviously) and also occasionally gives me a headache, therefore spoiling my enjoyment of the film.

Thank you for confirming my statement did apply to TVs, thus contradicting your own earlier statement that it had not died a death.

Thanks and take care yourself
