The Return of 3-D
03.29.07 by REELZ
For years, the letters "3-D" in a movie's title were considered a signal of mediocrity. More of a studio marketing gimmick than a legitimate storytelling device, it was typically reserved for schlock like Jaws 3-D and Amityville 3-D.
But technology has come a long way since then, as evidenced by Meet the Robinsons (opening nationwide this week). Disney's latest animated flick represents the next step in the 3-D viewing experience, and it's pretty astounding -- a million times better than Robert Rodriguez's infinitely lame Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.
Expect the number of 3-D offerings to multiply in the future, as studios look for more ways to get people into theaters.
