where im working were at the moment configuring the new 3d/reald digital cinema systems for one of the big companies, reald is wow omg fantastic it blows 3d out of the water and another interesting fact lol is that anything screened from these projectors is watermarked so if copies are made they know where when and who was working the projector, damn theres loads of other interesting stuff about this but im not allowed to say lol probably said to much already
I've watched a few 3D films, but I do end up with tired eyes afterwards.
I didn't realise that in Avatar, several of the "inside" human scenes are actually 2D, so you can have a break then.
I thought Alice really benefitted from 3D though (The Cheshire Cat worked brilliantly in it)

As someone who has to sit at the very back of the cinema in order not to get a headache when watching movies (half the time I want to be further back) I did not have any problems with Avatar (the only 3D movie I have seen recently) I went to Shark boy and Lava girl in 3D but that was the apppaling red/blue with red/blue lenses that just plain hurt.
I don't think evey film deserves nor needs to be shot in 3D but I loved Avatar the imagery etc.
I did buy the aviator specs on sale as I found the plastic frames of the freebes was in my vision the whole movie.
Oh and in the interest of scientific research (does that sound reasonable?) I conducted the experiment of watching the movie more then once. (okay about 4 times what can I say I want to be a Navii)
