With all respect, are you kidding?

I try to allow room for different opinions and discussion but this is beyond that now and its just simply bad information.

I heard Peter Jackson say twice in two days with my own ears that 'The Hobbit' would not be in 3D. One was in a room with 40 people discussing 3D cameras and the new digital red cameras that he had tried out and the merits of film and digital movie making. The group was discussing true film-nerd minutia and it was a definitive "no 3D" statement.

The next time was with James Cameron who was praising 3D while sitting with Jackson in front of 6,500 people and Jackson said plainly, again, that "The Hobbit" wasn't going to be in 3D.

That was good enough for me but since then, the internet ran with your unnamed sources and so, finally, I went to the guy who is directing the movie.

Guillermo responded to my question also saying it wasn't being discussed. You can twist his words to keep you hope or the credibility of your sources alive but in the context of the question, I am 100% satisfied that they are planning on a traditional film shoot, not 3D. They have no motive to deny or hide it.

Do you think these two guys are intentionally lying about this or do you think they don't know the truth? I can't figure that out.

I am done, completely, with any 3D discussion of this movie until GDT or PJ or Weta or Warners says otherwise.

I have no choice but to believe in free will.
