So hopefully everyone can tell their experiences here. For me, I got their and was told that the Real D 3D Darth MAUL themed glasses were not going to be given out at the midnight show. Did anyone else have this problem. It seems to me that the midnighters would be the fans that would appreciate it the most. Apparently this was the instructions left by the distributors not the theaters policy. Can someone find out more info on this? I am pissed. That is half the reason I went to the midnight- to assure those glasses. Next there were no 501st in Peoria IL (not surprised since a single Boba Fett was the only one who showed up for the EIII original release. There were some teenagers with some hasbro sabers and one kid with a modified mando helmet and pretty poor armor. and a few low end jedi robed kids. Nothing film accurate but good for them. As for the movie, I noticed right away that they barely used the 3D. The opening scroll started at the bottom at a +0 depth (meaning that if you took your glasses off it would look the same. Then it went to negative depth as it went up the screen. I think the bottom of the screen should have started off at a positive depth, hit the +0 depth half way up and then moved into the negative. This accentuates the 3D effect. I felt the whole movie was lacking in the 3D conversion. I have seen plenty of films that have been retro-converted to 3D that did a much better job than star wars (Nightmare before xmas comes to mind although I realize that is a whole different animal). All in all, the 3D was barely present in most scenes and barely added any enjoyment to the pod race, which I was looking forward too. You could feel the entire audience get antsy when jar jar first came on the screen and again about half way through (a collective, "the anticipation has warn off and we now realize we have to sit through the rest of the worst star wars movie" feeling came over everyone. All in all it felt like the first time I watch TPM, disappointing with a few cool moments. How bout everyone else?
