However, that comment came across as quite pithy and almost rude to me. Particularly having just seen Avatar in IMAX 3D and being frankly amazed at how ungimmicky the 3D was. Of course your mileage may vary, but to me the discussion is more interesting and valuable when people's points of view are taken seriously rather than dismissed with pithy one-liners. You can take that for what it is worth.
I'm sure you don't mean to be rude
I certainly don't think that 3D will determine whether The Hobbit films are artistically successful; that will depend on the script, and the acting, and the cinematography, and the directing (and the score, and the costumes, and the sets, and the bigatures, and a bunch of other stuff, and most of all, assuming the adaptation is done well, on the source material). If The Hobbit remains in 2D it won't make me any less excited to see the films. But I am convinced now that the 3D technology could make the films even better than they otherwise would be.
Again, your mileage may vary.
