adventures in geekdom

The blog of a twentysomething who is finally unleashing her inner geek after stifling it for the majority of her adolescence.

3d vs. 2d

…What’s the big deal about 3D?

No, really. Someone please explain it to me. It seems like everyone is geeking out over 3D being so awesome and amazing and revolutionary, and now every movie is either being made in 3D (without a 2D option *sob*) or re-released in 3D.

I. HATE. THREE. DEE. I’m sorry, 2D looks perfectly fine to me. I get godawful headaches when watching 3D, and I’ve yet to see a 3D movie that looked remarkably different or better than its 2D counterpart. And yet, everyone is doing it. Everyone is loving it. Everyone thinks it’s awesome and I don’t know why.

Unfortunately, I don’t see the 3D obsession stopping anytime soon. Thank goodness for people like Hank Green, who came up with and is now selling 2D Glasses. This is such a brilliant idea, it makes me want to stand in front of the Hollywood sign and say “HA-HA!” and blow a raspberry. (Yes, I’m actually four years old.)

As Gizmodo puts it, “2D Glasses are here, they’re real, and they’re ready to flatten whatever Hollywood throws at ‘em.” So if you’re like me and NOT geeking out over everything in the world being transformed into 3D, here’s how you can beat the system!

Can I get an “EPIC WIN!!”? \o/
