I don’t really like to go to movie theatres since it always seems to be too much of a hassle. Getting to the show on time, buying food, scheduling bathroom breaks, and finding a seat in a dark theatre packed with people is not fun for me. I prefer Netflix because everything is on your schedule, and my parents pay for it. My latest grief with movie theatres is the recent over-popularization of 3D movies. Has everyone forgotten that 3D sucks? The oversized, unattractive glasses that are often times reused (which has to be some form of health code violation), and not to mention that only a couple scenes actually utilize 3D to its full potential. People talking are not something that I need to see in 3D in a movie, I see three-dimensional people talk everywhere. The only times when something pops off the screen and looks semi-cool is when the character does something cheesy like sneeze or reaches their arm forward. Yeah, totally worth the extra money. This style of movie watching was popular in the 1970’s and then later in museums. What part of that history sounded remotely attractive? I’ll be impressed when new technology projects a film into my brain via satellite, not when an old trick is redistributed to make an extra buck.
