3D Film Viewing: a Progressive or Detracting Experience?

Films are now commonly viewable in theatres in 3D. Does this development offer an addition to cinema which enhances or betters the viewing experience? Or, do 3D films provide meaningless spectacle and detract from the film viewing experience?
Note: consider also that this contemporary 3D popularity is not the first wave or usage of 3D film effects in film history.

  • A good point is that you have to pay more to see a film in 3D, so is it worth it? – LaRose 5 years ago

  • 3D personally gives me headaches and can cause sickness so the element of physical health plays a role in this debate too. Good topic! – rowenachandler 5 years ago

  • This is a good topic- more often than not I hear viewers saying that 3D effects do not add anything special to a movie or possibly even dampen the experience. Viewers are likely to be especially dissatisfied if this is true AND they have to pay extra to see the movie in 3D. It is worthwhile to see if there have been any studies/surveys done to see whether 3D effects improve a movie-watching experience. In my opinion, some films benefit from 3D and some just don't need it. – Suman 5 years ago

  • Awesome topic! Make sure you consider how people view 3D movies differently as well- people with glasses and eye problems like stigmitisms tend to have more trouble viewing 3D than other people. – LilyaRider 5 years ago

  • I think this could also provide the possibility of a discussion about how 3D can take the message away from a film because you're so distracted by all the CGI flying at your face. – Sara Clements 5 years ago

  • As a human who received an injury to my eye and this have absolutely no stereo, or binocular cues, in my eyes and pay more money to wear silly glasses and see a 2D movie. In the interest of the "visually impaired", as mentioned by LilyaRider above, should be taken into consideration with this question especially with the pressure for cinemas and home theatres to update to the "new and improved" technology – Cory MacRae 5 years ago
