Yesterday I read that Alice in Wonderland made 117 million dollars its opening weekend. Unfortunately, I was eating a pretzel at the time.
After being heimliched back into coherence, I began to feel like Charlton Heston at the end of Planet of the Apes, instead of viewing the wreckage of the Statue of Liberty, just imagine that American cinema is lying down there in shambles on that beach head.
You maniacs! You blew it up! Damn you!
If you had told me five years ago that nearly every blockbuster would be filmed in 3D in the near future, I would have said, “You have a problem, sir.

This article is hilarious and sooo true. As all my fellow staff members at OBS know, and some of our fans, I really am NOT a fan of 3-D. I know some of my fellow staff members agree with me on this sentiment and I am glad someone else out there does too. One of the only times I love to wear 3-D glasses is for a Pink Floyd Laser Light Show. That type of viewing experience needs 3-D. Not ever darn movie ever made starting in 2010. I also agree with the sentiments that if you pay the extra charge for the glasses, you should be able to keep them, not pay a ‘rental fee’. If that’s the case I’ll spend less money, rent the movie, watch it on my 60″ flat screen with the lights off , with my one dollar 3-D glasses I got from Blockbuster the last time I rented a 3-D flick. Saves me tons of money. I can see it now…3-D contacts…for those who hate wearing glasses. Where will the madness end?
