3D isn't even being done right in the best of cinemas. I went to westfield vue the other day to see Tron, and it was the blurriest, darkest, drab mess of a film I've ever seen in 3D. Other films I've seen being Toy Story 3 and Avatar.





2D parts of the film looked a lot better with the glasses off. It's scary how crisp and detailed avatar looks compared to other films where 3D is an afterthought. 3D films are also incredibly hard to focus on if the camera is moving, leading to lots of blurring.





It conclusion it's a gimmick that will be here for a time, but I believe many like me will vote with their wallets after seeing one awful 3d after another. 2D is fine, and i'll only touch 3D again when Avatar 2 comes out.

I'll wait for passive 3d, even if it takes 10 years, and in an oled screen.

It shouldn't have come as a surprise, there are more than a few of us that, having paid for our kit and for our licence, don't want to pay any more for content, even quality content. It's why we jumped for Freeview and why we love HD, iPlayer, Picasa, You Tube and other free applications on our TV's and ignore Sky, LoveFilm and other pay-as-you-go.





The trick for providers to master is to identify the next must-have content and then find a way to provide it to us for free. I look forward to 2011 with interest!





As to 3D I am sure the content and the technology will improve by leaps and bounds. However, if any content moves to 3D only, beware the first lawsuit from someone with a squint (about 7% of the population) under the disability discrimination act. Happy New Year!
