Jurassic Park Re-released... In 3D... Damn

I love Jurassic Park. I've said so many times. So news that it'll be re-released to theatres next year in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the film's initial release makes me very happy. What makes me less happy is the news that it'll be a 3D release.

I hate 3D. Hate it with a fiery passion that goes unmatched on this or any other Earth. It's hard to watch, adds another $3 to the cost of my tickets, and most importantly, provides nothing new to the medium. Unlike IMAX, which provides depth and scope to the viewing experience, 3D weakens the image, and distracts the viewer from the action on the screen. As a cinephile, it offends me. It's a gimmick, and one that I hope fades soon.

Nothing would make me happier than to see Jurassic Park on the big screen again, but as it is, not with a pair of crappy plastic glasses stuck to the front of my face.
