As you may have noticed and remember from previous blogs I have written I am not the biggest fan of the 3D film, the only one which has really blown me away has been Avatar because they did not play on the 3D effects. The release of Shrek 4 aka Shrek Forever After last week, also saw the release of some special Shrek style glasses!
I plan on going to see the film on Saturday morning, which will probably be total madness with the number of children in the screen but I must admit that I do plan on buying the Shrek style glasses just because they really do look amusing!
But my main thoughts on this subject are how long before each film decides to cash in twice by having 3D glasses with something from the film on them? My guess is not long even if it just has the film name along the side. The whole 3D experience seems to be getting more expensive by the minute.
If you buy the glasses at a Cineworld cinema (I have no idea about the other chains) you receive a voucher for 1 pound off popcorn and one pound off a drink, but is that really worth it? With food and drink being so expensive at the cinema.
All this is just thinking about loud really, but I can see more and more different styles of 3D glasses sneaking into films over the next year or so!
