My First 3D Movie

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

A few weeks ago I saw my first 3D movie — Resident Evil: Afterlife. I wasn't totally sold on the idea of 3D movies, in fact I really didn't care if it was 3D or not, I was just wanted to see the new Resident Evil movie. My buddy Jason, who lives in Albany, drove up for a mini-visit and to see the movie. His wife flat out refused to see it and I knew Rachelle wasn't going anywhere near that one, so the only way we could see it is if we got together.

The glasses were very stylish (not), but at least they were comfortable. The 3D-ness was cool, but a little distracting to me. It just didn't feel right because everything was in focus. When you look at something in the foreground everything behind that should be out of focus, at least according to my brain. Obviously it has to all be in focus because everyone doesn't look at the same thing at the same time. When Alice points a gun at the camera, some people will look at the gun, some at her face and some at the wall paper behind her.

I thought it was best used for shots without a huge depth of field. There were some scenes in the movie where they made things stick out so far it actually hurt my eyes and after a while gave me a slight headache.

I liked the movie. It wasn't as good as the first one but better than the third one, definitely worth a second look on dvd. The coolest part was the Axeman, but he was only in it for like 10 minutes. He totally reminded me of Pyramid Head from the Silent Hill franchise. I was disappointed that they didn't offer any kind of background on him.

Final verdict on the 3D: meh, I would have enjoyed the movie just as much in 2D. They actually expected you to give the glasses back at the end! They had "recycle" bins in the theaters for you to "dispose" of your glasses. I'm pretty sure I paid for those glasses (I think the tickets were more expensive because of the 3D) so I wasn't going to give them back and allow the theater to resell them to some else.
