I have very weird depth-perception, and I'm growing to hate 3-D. I just feel that it's pointless and doesn't add anything to a film. I understand other people enjoy it more than I do, and I'm willing to tolerate it for their sakes, but personally, other than a couple of films that I felt it worked for (Hugo being one of them), I just think it's a little pointless.
My problem with The Hobbit is that because of the deep tradition in mythic legends and illustrations, I just feel that it should be in a "sober" 2D. Also, I don't like the fact that it seems so drastically different visually from the original trilogy. I realize this is a "different" Middle Earth even in the books, but I just love the visual representation of LOTR, and I'm not happy about having something drastically different than that.
I want to go to the midnight showing, so I'm prepared to watch it in 3D, but if they offer it in 2D, I'm going to be on the fence. I realize PJ prefers 3D, and I want to trust his artistic vision, but I'm having a hard time reconciling my visuals of the book to something that seems so trendy. I don't want Middle Earth to be like a video game. I want it to be like a fairy-myth steeped in the English tradition.
