If it's gonna cost an extra 3-4 bucks to see it in 3D, I will gladly go with 2D thank you! Most of the 3D movies I've seen have been very disappointing; Kung Fu Panda 2 was the only recent one that looked incredible.

Another vote for 2D, primarily because 3D glasses make my eyes hurt.

It actually is the glasses, not the movies themselves. Even if I put the glasses on before the movie starts, I get the same pain in my eyes. It's a bearable pain, but irritating all the same. The odd part, I have perfect eyesight. I don't ear glasses and have never needed any medical attention for my eyes, yet 3D glasses cause me pain in my eyes. Worse part, my local theatre makes it more convenient to see 3D showings, so I pretty much have to suck it up.

If you could make 3D movies that don't require me to wear glasses and don't give me a pounding headache, I might prefer those. As it is, I avoid 3D movies whenever I can.

I prefer 2D. But I wouldn't deny anyone the 3D experience just because it's not my cup of tea.

I'll always take 2D if I have a choice. I've been to a few 3D movies at a few different theatres around town and the picture is always impossibly murky. It's a neat little gimmick for awhile, but it just washes out the colours and makes everything so dark. Until they figure out a way around that, I'll stick to the same ol' same ol', thank you very much.

I watched two movies in 2D this weekend (X-men: First Class and Pirates 4), and it was difficult to find an open seat. Certainly not a scientific study, but I think 2D is thankfully still very popular.

I just can't watch 3D; it gives me a headache.

Assuming it was filmed in 3D, I'd be happy to see it that way.

The higher price point means that I'll almost always go for the 2D version though.

I don't have a real preferrence, if it was filmed in 3D then sure. But then again I've only seen 1 3D movie recently. But saying that I've only been to the cinema once recently

Re: Poll: Would you prefer to see a movie in 3D or 2D?

I wear glasses, and adding the 3D glasses over them doesn't bother me at all.

As for the movies, I want to see a movie the way the director intended me to see it. If it's post-converted, I'm not interested, I'd rather see it in 2D.

But if it's a creative decision by the creative team involved, and it serves a creative and/or thematic purpose, then I'm all for 3D and think it's fun.

The only two 3D movies that I've seen so far and have loved it are Avatar and Tron: Legacy. Filmed in 3D movies for creative/thematic purposes. Thor I saw in 3D and hated it (the 3D, I mean...the film was great.)

Re: Poll: Would you prefer to see a movie in 3D or 2D?

I've tried to watch 3D and it doesn't really work or do anything for me. The technology's benefits/advantages haven't been proven to me in the least and I refuse to pay a premium for it.

Presently I'm quite happy with the image quality we have with 2D. I'm more interested in seeing good films rather than a gimmick that adds nothing to the experience.

Re: Poll: Would you prefer to see a movie in 3D or 2D?

If it were the same price, and the choice were-
Walk into this theater and see it in 2D
Walk into that theater and see it it 3D

I might as well go for the 3D one. That is of course if it's properly filmed and planned out in 3D, ala Avatar and Resident Evil 4, rather than badly converted later, ala Clash of the Titans.


Fairly simple to me

I hate 3D movies, have seen some in 3D (latest was the Pirates of the Caribbean), but have decided that from now on I'll rather not watch the movie than see it in 3D.

I hate spending the extra bucks to see 3D, so I usually go for 2D, which is fine to me. I've seen "Rio" and the upconverted "Clash of the Titans" both in 3D--what a difference between them. I felt cheated out of my money for "Clash" but wowed with "Rio".

And "X-Men: First Class" was fantastic in 2D--and a very full theater too!
