I just got back from seeing the 3D showing of Avatar. I wore those realD glasses, but I didn’t notice any 3D effects. It just looked like a regular 2D movie to me. Nothing popped out at all. A similar thing happened when I saw the 3D Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas. I could watch the movie, but nothing appeared 3D.
I remember those blue and red glasses working for me when I was a kid. I remember being able to enjoy Captain Eo and 3D comic books. I also got those stereoscopic tests at the eye doctor a long time ago, and everything appeared normal.
Are my eyes busted? I wear prescription glasses for pretty severe nearsightedness and astigmatism, so I had to wear the realD frames over them. I tried without my glasses, but that didn’t help. I also tried changing seats and varying my perspective. My parents could see the 3D just fine. I swapped glasses with them to see if mine were defective.
Why can’t I see 3D movies?
