But which of this summer's "movie movies" at the cineplex may be potentially ruined by 3-D?
Here are the films to be released in three dimensions (in order of release): Thor, Priest, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Kung Fu Panda 2, Green Lantern, Cars 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Smurfs, Final Destination 5, Conan the Barbarian, Fright Night, Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World.
Films that will not be in 3-D, but sound like they could easily have been, are: X-Men: First Class, Super 8, Cowboys & Aliens, Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Now I haven't seen any of these, but offer this rule of thumb: with notable exceptions like Avatar, films that have lots of busy, quickly-edited action scenes and special effects suffer in 3-D. And films with many night-time, outer space or otherwise dark sequences look even more dim through the 3-D glasses, although the effect isn't so pronounced on an IMAX screen. Sight unseen, I'd be a little leery of seeing Thor, Pirates of the Caribbean, Green Lantern and Transformers in 3-D (although director Michael Bay claims that the 3-D cameras will restrict the third Transformers movie from being as busy and head-achey as the last one.) So you may want to save your money for the regular 2-D exhibition, unless you hear otherwise.
Computer animated family films like Cars 2 and Kung Fu Panda 2 should like fine either way.
By the way, you may recall that Deathly Hallows Part 1 was not in 3-D. Apparently director David Yates and Warner Brothers determined that they didn't have time to do a good 3-D "post-conversion" last year, but are releasing the new one in all three dimensions. Uh-oh.
This is why we can't have nice things.
Stop being so racist and sexist, no-hyphens.
