Has 3-D already failed? by Kristin Thompson
(from Observations on film art at David Bordwell's website on cinema)

This article's from last September, but -- despite Avatar -- I reckon many of its points still stand. And it's therefore excellent.

On a related note, also check out Bwana Beowulf and Coraline, cornered from the same blog. Both are further discussions of 3D, using specific films (which should be obvious) as case studies, and continue to demonstrate why this 3D malarky isn't all its cracked up to be.

Suggestion of the day...

Send this letter to this email address (adding some kind of framing bit to note the letter's not actually by you but you agree with every word of it).

It'll only take a few seconds, but it might one day turn out to be worth it.
