Pointless 3-D film of the week
It's a truth universally acknowledged that no-one looks good in 3-D glasses. They always chafe too.
If you going to put yourself through that, you at least want the film to be hurling stuff at you left, right and centre. Few seem to anymore. Disney/Pixar announced last year that all their products will be available in 3-D from now on - but I can't really remember anyone benefiting from 'Bolt' in triple dimensions (apart from Disney/Pixar, since the tickets cost more).
This week, 'Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs' (pictured) is another one. Not one reason for it to be in 3-D and yet there I sat, these clunky lumps of heavy plastic slowly sliding down my nose every five minutes, resting on the end of my hooter like David Dickinson's jaunty reading glasses off of daytime telly. Rubbish.
Concert movies have a bit more reason to be in 3-D (you're getting the stadium atmos) but who really goes to see them? And NO-ONE, not even your worst enemy, should have to witness that bit in 'Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience' were Jo, Nick and Kevin Jnr whip out their huge hoses and spray their teenage girl audience with white foam. IN 3-D. So, so wrong.
So for 99% of the time it's a huge waste of time and money. Thank god for the 1% like this (WARNING - gratuitous green knickers shot 58 secs in):
