    Movies meant to be seen in 3D

    So I got Resident Evil: Afterlife for Christmas, and I just finished watching it on DVD.

    Last Summer I saw it in 3D--it is in fact the only movie I have seen in 3D. While it was hard seeing my people die (zombies, not janitors), the effects were mind blowing (again, it's the only 3D move I've seen) so I let it slide.

    Watching it this time was pretty weird. There were constant slow-motion scenes, usually where blood, bullets, or brain matter were flying at the screen. The thing was, it wasn't very cool. In fact, it got pretty annoying after a while. I realized that RE:Afterlife was made to be seen in 3D, and no other way.

    I began to wonder if many movies are like this now. I don't want to buy a DVD and not be able to enjoy it. Are any other movies made this way, or is Resident Evil the only one?

    Maybe try not to see the 3d version first. I just saw RE:A for the first time (sans 3D) a little bit ago and assumed it was their typical over the top slo-mo effects. But then again I'm no janitor, nor dead, so what do I know...

    My son just got a 50" 3d television that can play everything in 3d mode. Him and my wife wear those glasses and play all kinds of video games and watch tv that way. I am blind in my left eye so it just looks like it has a little more depth to me, but that's about it. They and a few other ppl that have used it swear they see stuff jumping out of the screen and stuff. Kinda jealous I can't see it, but hey they are enjoying it.

    When I read this, I was like WTF? You bought your son a 50" 3D TV for Christmas!

    The next sentence cleared things up.

    It's like that with any movie I have seen recently that was released in 3D in the theaters. The 3D gags just don't look right on a standard television. But the same kind of applies to the old school red/blue glasses 3D IMO. I think he standard version of Piranha 3D has been the worst I've seen thus far in terms of cheesy 3D gags falling flat on their face. I have always though 3D films are stupid and gimmicky anyways...Except for Captain EO of course.

    LMAO!! You work all day trying to get a 3D TV and you wake up in the morning to watch your morning show when suddenly you can see nothing because of some cheap glasses that came up with a $3,000+ tv, lol
