addicted to the third dimension

I've just seen my third 3-D film. I love it. I'm in love with a new way of seeing. They're like the old technicolour films, back when it was all just LOOK! COLOUR! WE HAVE COLOUR! and no-one was really thinking about plots or acting or anything like that. I do like that stuff, but I also like the purity of visual carnival and and look-at-me grandstanding. My third film was Alice in Wonderland. I suspect that my first 3-D eyeball plucking will linger in the memory. The last twenty minutes were rubbish but that's true of so many films I've stopped holding it against them, expectations permanently lowered. Oh, and I want a cheshire cat. Once again, I'm drawn to considering whether or not Harlequin would take dye, at least on the white bits. I suspect though that, while not expressly forbidden in my owner's agreement, it would be against the spirit of it. She'd never be able to make that and-a-bit-more grin anyway. In other news, I woke up last night just as I was falling asleep. I'd been dreaming that my eyes were full of buzzing bees. At the weekend she was stalking bees. I averted near-disaster when I came back in from doing the front garden to find she'd cornered a white-tailed bumble bee queen almost bigger than she was in the verandah. Some shooing was needed to resolve the situation without disaster on either side...

I also watched Clash of the Titans 3D. Mighty thews! Massive scorpions! Inexplicable religious mash-ups! Medusaaaaaaaaaaaa! Yes, I am eleven again. Look at the pretty lights!

I'm not so sure on 3D
Sometimes everything seems out of focus and sometimes I'd like to be able to look at the areas the camera hasn't tight-focused on and its all annoyingly blurry. When a film is more fully conceived in 3D its good (ship waking scene early in Avatar is great), but too often I find myself stumbling over treated films.

I wasn't so keen on 3D Alice because of the scenes where I wanted to examine the rich background tapestry filling the world for a few seconds or so and it was all in blurrovision.

Anyone with problems with one eye must find them dreadful.

Re: I'm not so sure on 3D
hmmm, I do find myself wondering if my particular visual set-up suits me especially well for 3D as it does seem to work really quite well on me
