Roger Ebert Vomits Forth More Bile - Just Doesn't Get Modern 3D AT ALL

Jim here. Well Roger Ebert has again attacked modern 3D by spewing more ignorance of the technological marvel: "3-D is a distraction and an annoyance. Younger moviegoers may think they like it because they've been told to, and picture quality is usually far from their minds. But for anyone who would just like to be left alone to see the darned thing, like me, it's a constant nudge in the ribs saying never mind the story, just see how neat I look."

What this solely tells me is he can't get over how profoundly 3D affects him. He can't shake the experience! I will submit that the first few 3D movies you see will have you thinking about the beauty of the format, but as you experience more and more of it - and if the movie is done right - you will forget that 3D is even there. THAT is the magic.

Unfortunately it seems all the magic has left Mr. Ebert. It really is too bad. One of the most respected movie critics of all time simply cannot come to grips with what is now being proven to be the future of cinema and the next step toward total immersion in the movies.

I have said it before and I will say it again if he continues to voice his ignorance of 3D: Perhaps it is time to retire. Retire before there is real embarrassment, because in my mind if he continues down this path he may very well be ruining his mammoth legacy to the entertainment industry and present himself as, well, a dinosaur who didn't really know extinction was possible.
