in reply to Do you enjoy 3D movies?

I haven't seen any of the modern crop of 3D movies and only a few of the fifties-era movies. The only 3D movie I've really enjoyed was Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder; Hitchcock handled the 3D effect deftly. I fondly remember seeing this at a Detroit Institute of Arts/Detroit Film Theater presentation that was part of a season of 3D films years (decades!) ago. My, my, how time does fly!

Update: Come to think of it, I do remember seeing a couple of post-fifties 3Ders: The Bubble (crap) and Andy Warhol's Frankenstein (crapahol). Gee, why was 3D never really popular? (Update: Come to think of it a bit more, while I'm certain I've seen Andy Warhol's Frankenstein, I'm not sure I saw a 3D version. The Wikipedia article makes me question whether I would have had access to a 3D presentation. My vague memory is of seeing it in a venue that was much further down-market than the DFT, which might have offered the "premiere engagement" print referred to in the article. Be that as it may, the flick I saw was crap, and I doubt that adding one or even two more dimensions to it could have improved it significantly.)
