    Don't think I've ever seen one: not that I plan to, anytime soon.

    Yet another fad. Didn't stick around long in the 60s, didn't stick around long in the 80s either.

    I don't care for it. It doesn't add to the story, not worth the prices and gives me a headache.

    I think it's appropriate for some films, but not all. I'm looking forward to seeing the Star Wars films in 3D. I think too many films are being released in 3D, if anything.

    Avoid it. I don't care much about it, and the glasses are a pain on top of my real glasses.

    Tyi, if I remember correctly, special cameras were developed to enable filming in 3D and was used in Avatar and a few other films so far.

    My thoughts on 3D is that if it is done properly and not rushed, it can work. It depends on the content, the conversion process. Quite a number seems to be rushed jobs which hurts the film's quality.

    I am interested to see how 3D films plays on the Nintendo 3DS as they use a specially designed screen that enables 3D viewing without the need for glasses.

    I dislike it, not because it gives me a headache, which it does, but because of what it's doing to the quality of film.

    I've seen a couple and the only one I really enjoyed was Avatar... I have a feeling the Star Wars movies will be converted very, very well and I'm really looking forward to them.

    Overrated. Plus, it gives me one hell of a headache.

    I'm fine with average TV and cinema, thank you very much. ;)

    I see 3d kind of like a fad. Every movie studio wants their movie filmed in 3d so it can be bright and flashy and jump out to the kids. For me, it reminds me of the 1950's again. For some kids movies, it might be ok. But for some others, it's like it "Cheapens" the experience. But I'm weird.

    Correct. Some movies are filmed using the cameras, and some don't - it generally seems that the ones that use the cameras have better-quality 3D.

    Personally, I hate it all. It gives me a headache (and wearing the 3D glasses over my own isn't exactly comfortable.

    I dislike it a lot, makes me feel nauseous and do they really need to do so many films in 3-D.

    Being visually impaiored also does'nt help as I can only see so much and 3-D does not help me enjoy the film.

    Now I just saw Megamind in 3d and it looked pretty cool.

    I honestly don't care on way or the other. None of these 3-D releases scream out to be seen in 3-D other than Avatar maybe.

    It has potential, but so far I don't like the it. This holds especially true that just about every movie now tries to use the medium. It's tedious and unnecessary.

    It was a fad in the 50's and a fad in the 10's.

    I honestly think it's designed so people have to go the theaters. It also makes it harder top bootleg the films. Price I think is the biggest thing; you have to pay an extra three bucks usually for the glasses

    I've liked a couple, but overall no, I don't like 3D.

    The only 3D films that I am looking foward to seeing are the 6 Star Wars films. Any other 3D movie, I'll skip until the DVD release.
