Like I said...

If there is always option, it's not that big of a deal. I think everybody should be able to enjoy films the way they want to. But, as I said in my post above, the option is becoming very limited (see my first post), the theaters in my area are no longer showing Avatar in 2D and haven't been for well over a month, in fact the only 2D showings in my area that I ever knew of were 4 showings on one screen at one theater for a very limited time (like I said in my first post). If that trend continues...will there be any option in two years by the time The Hobbit is released?

If you read my first post, you'll see the concerns I have with 3D, it's all about choice and preferences and comfort levels with what is my favorite hobbie becoming something that is not an enjoyable experience for me. But what I didn't really get across was that I think making a film 3D for any other reason that an artistic choice (that being specifically the vision GdT has) is a huge mistake and insulting to fans of film and of the source material. GdT himself has stated that there are no plans for the film to be in 3D, and that is something that needs to be consider during the things they have done and are doing in order for that to be a smart, succesful and artistic choice. Like I said, I believe in GdT and PJ and am beihnd their vision and for these films to be successful thry need to have control over the look of theire vision. If that for some reason becomes 3D, so be it. But to make THESE movies in 3D because it is trendy, or because it is "neat", or because they can charge more for tickets, is something I can't get behind. These arne't just any old movies.

This is all once again my personal feelings, opinion and point of view
