3D backlash: You wouldn't hit a guy with glasses?

Posted By on Wed, Jul 7, 2010 at 4:23 PM

Hollywood's 3D trend is getting an increasing amount of blowback, with Roger Ebert, the de facto dean of American film critics, leading the charge. Earlier this year, Ebert posted a much-quoted tweet that read "3D is a distracting, annoying, anti-realistic juvenile abomination to use as an excuse for higher ticket prices." Salon took up the charge last week with a piece on "How bad 3-D is ruining movies." Films like Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender have benefited from 3-D's inflated ticket prices, but the crappy effects in those films may be the format's worst enemy. My favorite 3-D take-down, however, is this pie chart:
