I’m guessing that Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, having seen it in 3-D on IMAX, probably would not have done as well without the food falling down in your face because there was less of a story to be found there. On the other hand, I think Toy Story 3, having seen it in 2-D, held up on its own without the need of 3-D
technology. What happened to the days when seeing a movie on a 50
foot screen was enough? These days, it seems to take so much more to entertain us. Not only that, but with a 2-D movie costing $11.50, where I’m from, you can imagine my surprise when I got to the window and paid $15.50 to see Step Up 3-D. $15.50!?! Is it worth it? Or, is this the movie industry's way of continuously trying to rob us of what little money we have, knowing we will continue to pay? In this economy, one industry that continues to thrive is the movie industry. Don’t get me wrong; it is a fun experience, depending on the type of film, (see above concerning Step Up 3D). I think it’s getting a little out of hand (there is news buzzing about upcoming 3D movies). I guess it's to each his own.
