I don't like the dimness of 3D (which is because of the glasses rather than the film itself or the projectors if set up right).
Apart from the headaches, this is my biggest gripe, though it was not nearly as problematic at the IMAX 3-D Hobbit screening as the others I've seen. Still plan to see the new Trek in 2-D.

I only see films in the cinema if they are 3D.

That's what the studios are aiming for (though they'd like it better if you also saw some 2-D films too).

And what studio wants, studio gets.

Re: Abrams talks Star Trek 3D in SFX magazine

My primary viewing of Star Trek will be in 2-D. I may go see it in 3-D after a couple of viewings for the novelty of it but it could be fun too. I plan to get a new Smart TV by year's end so I may be enjoying it more. BTW, I wouldn't be *completely* surprised if a converted 3-D Version of the 2009 film was released on Blu Ray too at some point, which may be fun.

For everyone who can't see 3D or just doesn't want to see 3D, just buy glasses where both glasses have the same polarization. Then you see only one image. A friend of mine who is stereo blind did this, it works.

If you want to be really cheap, just keep one eye closed!

Is there any benefit to buying your own better quality 3d glasses rather than the cheap plastic things in the cinema or is that a waste of money?

Last year I bought a £2 pair rather than the 75p cinema ones, far better quality but then I've heard others say it doesn't improve it much for them. I guess it depends on what make and what movie.

It's not the glasses, in my case--it's the 3-D itself. But whatever works for others, great.

Re: Abrams talks Star Trek 3D in SFX magazine

I will give into darkness 3d a shot but this is after I see it in 2d first. I must say I hate 3d most of the time,the last 3d film I watched was Avengers and it was terrible (not the film),in my second viewing I saw it in 2d and enjoyed it so much more.

For those who don't want to see 3-D, there is another option: don't go to 3-D films.

But then they wouldn't see it.

I've never had any trouble with 3D nor noticed any "dimness." I like it.
