Yesterday I went to see Superman Returns at the Imax in 3D. I love anything in 3D, you might say I’m a bit of a geek about it. The movie is about 2:35 long, and they had about 4 little sequences that were in 3D maybe totalling up to about 20 minutes of content. Don’t waste your money on the modified content go see it in a regular theater. I have a strong disliking for movies that only contain sequences in 3D, I would prefer not to have to take off and put on glasses. It is annoying. Or am I the only one it annoys?
Upside is we saw previews for some computer animated movies that will be shown in Imax 3D (most likely the whole movie). They were The Ant Bully and Open Season Both looked very well done. I also recall hearing the Monster House will be in 3D. The computer animated movies are much easier to put into 3D than standard film, so we will probably see a lot of these.
Technical Stuff: For* Superman Returns*, they used the typical opposed polarized lenses, which is ok, but if you tilt your head the slightest bit you will get bleed over from what your other eye is seeing. Last year with the release of Chicken Little they used some sort of circular polarizing that did not suffer from the head tilt problem. Why wouldn’t every movie from that point on use the new technology? It is an improvement!
