Crass of the Titans

Clash of the Titans Remake

So yeah, if you listened to yesterday's show we tried our best to clarify the difference between movies shot in 3D and those converted into 3D. Our worry is that natively shot (and amazing looking) 3D movies like Avatar and the upcoming Tron: Legacy and Resident Evil: Afterlife could be hurt by people seeing badly converted 3D films like Alice in Wonderland and Clash of the Titans and they will get sick of 3D before the ones that are shot natively are released.  We were worried that Clash was going to look bad because they only had a few weeks to make the conversion. Apparently...we were right

From Yahoo

The LA Times notes: "It's doubtful that records are kept about this sort of thing, but consider the possibility that 'Clash of the Titans' is the first film to actually be made worse by being in 3D."

The Chicago Sun-Times' Roger Ebert, who gave the film a positive three out of four stars, has a piece of advice for moviegoers this weekend. "Explain to kids that the movie was not filmed in 3D and is only being shown in 3D in order to charge you an extra $5 a ticket. I saw it in 2D, and let me tell you, it looked terrific."

Ouch!!!!! We'll sometimes Mr. Gekko, Greed is not Good!

That being said the movie will still probably do well, even if it's "2-D in select theaters"
