thoughts on the new movie 3d  
I like 3d. I think it's the next step that media needs to do. I'm excited by the technologies that are starting to emerge (espeically the work done on glassesless stuff, because I think that will be required before you can have 3d TV.)

But sadly I don't think Coraline in 3d really added much. I like that they're trying to make it mainstream or at least more common, but until it really feels worth it, I'm not sure there will be enough of a market to embrace it. I almost felt that animation is the wrong place for it, because we've already been impressed by the leaps and bounds that animation has taken and modern styles almost over emphasize shadows for extra depth. I think it might have more impact in live action.

See, I disagree. I like that the effect was subtle and didn't throw things in your face every few minutes.

I agree with what you said about animation, but Coraline was stop-motion - which makes it a little different.

Until they make 3d cameras that are easier to use (they're huge and clunky) you won't be seeing much of them in live action - most 3d effects that you see nowadays are done in post production anyways.

I saw Bolt in 3D and enjoyed it. It may have been a bit difficult to see the entire detail in 3D, so it may have been a tradeoff. For Coraline, I am leaning towards seeing the non-3D version, because I want to appreciate the detail. Though maybe I'll go see both :)
