To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Monsters Inc Ticket
Whether you're looking to revisit the movie you loved as a child, or are planning to introduce to kids of your own to these kooky creatures, Monsters Inc. is certain to please. But is it worth the extra money for the 3D ticket? We break it down.
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Hobbit Ticket
Perhaps the most significant point of contrast between Peter Jacksonís old trilogy and new is the way in which in which the movies were made. Taking a few big technological steps forward, the Kiwi filmmaker decided to not only make The Hobbit movies at a faster frame rate, but also in 3D. And just as we ask the question for every other 3D movie, we now ask it for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: is it worth paying the few extra bucks to see?
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Life Of Pi Ticket
Life of Pi is being sold as this year's Avatar, the 3D movie explosion that must be seen on the big screen, that must be seen more than once, and that must be considered the holiday moviegoing event for the entire family. That's a whole lot of pressure, but with director Ang Lee behind it and a lot of critical raves
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Wreck-It Ralph Ticket
Wreck-It Ralph might boast some of the best 3D Iíve seen on screen in years. Donít be a stink-brain. Enjoy Wreck-It Ralph in 3D, as its creators obviously intended.
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Silent Hill: Revelation Ticket
Apart from animation, Iím not sure thereís a single genre of film more suited to 3D than horror video game adaptations. Even staunch 2D advocates are usually willing to admit thereís something to the partnership beyond a shameless cash grab. When executed properly, the extra dimension really can add twenty to thirty percent more terror and make the extra three dollars worth it.
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Dredd Ticket
As a gritty, grimy and very bloody dystopian sci-fi movie, Dredd is a little bit of a weird choice for 3D, which usually accompanies children's films or the kinds of adventures that are supposed to sweep you away to another world, not disturb you to your core. When a movie is very deliberately aiming to be a midnight madness kind of thing, is 3D really going to enhance it?
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Pick The Right Resident Evil: Retribution Ticket
Almost every major Hollywood release now arrives at the box office in two formats. When you show up to see Resident Evil: Retribution this weekend you can pay higher ticket prices to put on uncomfortable glasses and watch it in 3D, or view it on the cheap by opting for a 2D version of that same film.
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Finding Nemo Ticket
When Finding Nemo was first released nine years ago, it drew widespread praise, not only for its touching story but also for its vibrant and hyper-detailed visuals. The ocean offered the animators an expansive playground to go nuts, and that busyness is present in almost every scene, save a carefully chosen few that use the background stillness to represent loneliness in a way words never could.
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right ParaNorman Ticket
Now Laika is back with their second feature, ParaNorman, which is also earning rave reviews. But is the 3D as much of a slam dunk this time? Is it still the only way to truly experience the movie? To help you answer that question, here's our latest installment of To 3D or not to 3D, in which we run down the key components of any 3D movie experience
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Amazing Spider-Man Ticket
The original three Spider-Man movies directed by Sam Raimi were huge global hits, and not a one of them was released in 3D. But we live in a different time now, of course, and it would be crazy for Sony not to release The Amazing Spider-Man in glorious digital 3D
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Ticket
You probably never thought you'd have the chance to see our 16th President fight vampires in glorious 3D, but modern Hollywood truly is an amazing and unpredictable thing. This weekend's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter doesn't just reimagine the Civil War as a battle between humans and the undead
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Brave Ticket
So does Brave continue the 3D winning streak? Does our heroine Merida, with her bows and arrows and gravity-defying red hair, truly pop in the third dimension, to the point that it's worth paying for both your 3D glasses and the kid-size ones? We're back yet again to help you answer that question
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Prometheus Ticket
Prometheus is a very big, very expensive science fiction film set aboard a futuristic space craft that's packed with all sorts of fascinating technology, from a machine that can automatically perform surgery to a startlingly human-like android named David. So in a way, it only made sense for director Ridley Scott to use the newest technology in flimmaking
