I agree some but disagree some [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope they, as you say, upped the antee on avatar and push 3D even further. I agree that Avatar immersed you in a film, and I wish Cameron had done more with the 3D (flying, roller coaster ride, pop out of the screen), but I have to totally disagree with what you saying that Avatar's story was nothing great by any means, because it was the story in that movie that made people come back again and again and again and again, not the average 3D. The 3D helped immerse people into the film, but a phenonon like that does not happen unless it has an awesome story worth come back to see over and over and over and over and over again. I thought the story and the message of Avatar was equal to anything out there, including my favorites (Star Wars, LOTR, Harry Potter)...IMO

3D brings me into any film, but really sucks me in when it gets to the roller coaster/flying joy rides and things popping out of the screen, giving it far more depth and thus I become that much more immersed into the movie. The first time I watched Avatar, I struggled slightly from staying fully immersed because I was expecting the 3D joy ride when they were flying (but it was not to be).

Having said all that, this is just how I best enjoy 3D/films in general, and if Jackson goes more the route of Avatar with the 3D, I won't be expecting it like I did the first time watching Avatar, so I will easily stay immersed, and if others like yourself enjoy the movie better because the 3D is more subtle, than that is good too. If Jackson does throw a few pop outs and joy rides my way, it will just immerse me in more and make it that much better, but we'll all just have to wait and see at this point.
