    On the 3D version.... it isn't worth the extra.

    The movie itself is AMAZING, and in my opinion (and many others), is the best of all 3 of them.

    There is plenty of enjoyment for the kids, but this movie has a lot of "deep" stuff to it, to keep the adults into it.

    BUT!!!! The 3D aspect of it... nah.
    Maybe it is me, but I just didn't see a need for a 3D version of this movie.

    Honestly, for me... it took a lot AWAY from the movie.
    I will probably go back to see it again, but in 2D.

    Amazing Story, And seeing the animation today... just makes what they did 10 years ago... even more impressive.

    And the Pixar Short to start the movie was also very good.

    Boy, you almost broke my heart with that thread title, Earl. I'm glad it was just the 3D that disappointed you. Not being a big fan of 3D myself, it's no great loss. But I sure am looking forward to seeing this movie.

    Littleton,...
    I saw it in IMAX 3D. My wife and daughter raved about it. For me it was just OK. Since my daughter works at the theater I have not paid for a movie in over 6 years. Apparently Sony is making a lot of 3D digital projectors and AMC theaters should be converted from 35 mm film to all digital in about a year. They get the digital movies now on locked hard drives.

    Your thread title lit my flames, but you tease, eh? Ok, agree totally how incredibly wonderful the movie is, but I saw it in 3D Imax! I thought 3D enhanced my experience, but the premium cost for Imax was a waste of my money.

    Earl, be honest, did ya cry?

    Totally agree. Fantastic movie but absolutely no need for 3D. Actually having to wear the glasses took away from my enjoyment. It amazes me that Pixar can evoke such deep emotions from animated toys....great to see that Disney has not done anything to inhibit Pixar's creative process.

    I liked the movie on 3D, but you are correct that there is nothing spectacular. I thought it was a good 3D balance "just like you were there kinda feeling". The story was also great. I read an article that said Pixar did not want a heavy 3D feeling.

    I most certainly.... did.

    Even though they are "animated", for me... the characters tugged at my heart pretty good there at the end.

    The movie was outstanding (I saw the 2D version). I got pretty choked up at the end. My wife and kids were sobbing. :icon_cry:

    I also liked the short at the beginning. Very imaginative.

    My mom took my kids to see it. Even the kids said it wasn't 3D and didn't enjoy the storyline. They wore the glasses because it was "blurry" if they took them off. They surprised me with their review.

    If it wasn't the fact that I have a grandson visiting in a month who wants to see it, and I also have a free ticket...I'd likely wait for the Blu Ray as well.

    Earl's done a good sell job that the 3D version isn't worth, even though my free ticket could be for either version.

    It's on the Netflix queue. I'm not so sure it's worthy of all of the sacrifices that going to the theatre requires.

    I don't think any movie is Stuart.

    There is certainly a case that could be made to support that statement. :D

    Yeah, me too. Isn't is amazing how Pixar has that power. Even more amazing, name a Part 3 of any movie that was as good and even better than Parts 1 and 2. Name another studio whose first 9 movies were as big hits, too!

    Dreamworks - they've had 10 flicks with over $100 Million in boxoffice each.

    ...you asked. :D

    We saw the 2D version because my wife thinks 3D will give her a headache, probably because she was prone to seizures a few years ago. We really loved the movie.

    I think Back To The Future Part 3, was on par with the first one.
    I don't think it exceeded it, but it certainly was still a good one that I can sit and watch.

    Do the Harry Potter Movie's count? Since there are 6, soon to be 8?

    Close... First 9 movies though. Dreamworks has put more flicks out there and on avg their success (critics and box office revenue) doesn't match. But still fun to compare them, I found this

    I like both companies though, but Pixar seems to have a certain magic while Dreamworks pushes pop-culture buttons. Still, I like both. Try to watch Shrek 1, its just not as funny anymore because they relied on pop culture references.

    Agree -- 3D was not worth paying more money ($12) than it costs to see a MLB game! Great movie, tho.
