You still think 3D is just a fad. Think again.
Everyday, more and more, it seems more filmmakers are embracing 3D, including first rate directors like Martin Scorsese. A few weeks ago I saw Sanctum, a movie I thought to be the first to use 3D in a way that actually enhanced the experience. But here is news of an experiment that just might do it once again.
Baz Luhrman, the Ausie behind Moulin Rouge has announced that he plans to make an adaptation of the Great Gatsby in 3D. Oh yeah. Luhrman has a thing for taking classics and adapting them in radical ways that teeter the line between genius and bastardization. Remember Romeo+Juliet?
I am still hesitant to fully embrace 3D. But more and more it seems this is going to be the way of the future. If it is I just hope ticket prices drop. So far the experience has not been enhanced enough to make the extra 5 bucks worth it. Plus I can't revisit the experience at home. The goofy glasses, I don't mind as much.
