3D or Not 3D

That is the question

On Christmas Eve we took the fam to a movie.   This year we were lucky enough to be able to catch an early afternoon showing of Hugo.  Reviews from the peanut gallery were mixed, but I loved it – feeling the sentiments of Steve’s review all over the place.

But that’s not the issue here (though you should see it if you get the chance – it’s lovely).  The issue is the previews.  Before the movie there were five of them.  In addition to feeling 12 hours long, they were just plain weird.  You see, 3 of the 5 were for movies being re-released in 3D.  3 of the 5.  Titanic, Beauty and the Beast and one of the Star Wars prequels.  Nothing new under the sun, indeed.

So here’s my question for you.  Would you pay to see a movie you’ve already seen just because it’s now in 3D?  It costs more to see 3D (yeah – $10.25 each for a matinee.  In Wisconsin) so you would have to be willing to pay a higher price than the first time you saw it and probably a higher price than it would cost you to buy it on DVD.

So let’s find out what you think about this gimmick – should we give Hollywood our hard earned money for rehashing old movies with new technology?  Take the poll and we’ll see if the studios are riding a legitimate popularity wave or if they’re just pathetic.
