IMAX to back away from 3D movies

I'm not a 3D movie hater. I think in the right hands 3D can make an incredibly movie. In fact I know it can. The sad thing is that directors don't usually film for 3D. They just shoot a 2D movie with 3D cameras. There's no use of depth to e...

Terminator: Genisys to release in IMAX 3D

Terminator: Genisys is slowly turning things around. After being easily mocked for both its ridiculous name and its ridiculous first look images the film landed with a solid trailer. I'm not actually excited for it yet, but the announc...

Divergent sequel Insurgent to be in 3D

It's hard to think about anything else than how much Marvel is rocking our faces right now, but remember Lionsgate does enjoy monopolizing the YA movie scene. Hunger Games may be dominant, but Divergent did well too and now the fi...

Review: Argento's Dracula 3D

There was a time when "directed by Dario Argento" meant something wonderful. There'd be wild visual play, inventive deaths, remarkable set pieces, and a memorable score by Goblin (or at least Goblin frontman Claudio Simonetti). Classic Arge...

Wizard of Oz getting 3D re-release

It's hard to imagine how stunning The Wizard of Oz must have been to someone seeing it on the big scree 75 years ago. The incredible color and spectacle weren't really matched back then, but for a modern audience seeing the classic on the b...

Review: Jurassic Park 3D

It's in 3D! It's like the Jurassic Park you have at home on DVD or Blu-ray, but with more depth. You also have to wear glasses or else it's just blurry Jurassic Park. Also, the dinosaurs win. At the end there's just a bloody pile of hu...

Iron Man 3 gets collectible 3D glasses because reasons

Trailer: Jack the Giant Slayer

This new trailer for Jack the Giant Killer Slayer doesn't look fun at all. It takes the intrinsic whimsy of the original Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale and turns it into something gritty, and action-y. Sure it's got Obi Wan Kenobi, that...

Review: Texas Chainsaw 3D

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has certainly had its ups and downs. The original film shocked a nation with its brutality when it exploded onto the scene in 1974, but the three that followed were a lot more goofy than scary, wha...

Dreamworks to lose $50M for Rise of the Guardians failure

Guilermo Del Toro explains Pacific Rim's 3D conversion
