Subject: RE: BS: 2-D Movies are good enough for me.
I love those old Victorian stereopticons. I made transferred 15 LPs to CDs in trade for one (with a box of cards of ancient Egypt sites). I have even been able to print out, from computer sites, and with moderate success, stereo scenes for use with the viewer.

As to 3D movies, I loved them as a kid of 13 or so. The main draw back was the polarized lenses (being the shade of sun glasses) tended to make the picture rather dark. They tried to compensate for this with a more highly reflective screen, but it wasn't that much better. I never saw a film in the red/green(blue) process until a revival of the 50s films was shown in the late 70s...that process totally sucked.

I have not seen any of the current crop of 3D, and probably won't.
