Will 2012 and its major 3D re-releases, such as Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Titanic spell the end of the 3D revolution? Is it all a step to far into crass repackaging a kin to the colourisation buzz of the 1980’s, a process with was ultimately seen off by Hollywood’s elite such as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg the 3D advocate George Lucas (Star Wars)?
I understand the need to re-present films of such importance as Titanic, which held the record as the highest grossing movie of all time, until it was unjustifiably overtaken by James Cameron’s own Avatar, but is adding 3D to older films just step towards cheapening the movie? Granted, King Kong’s colourisation didn’t do the original any harm but still, it’s a shame that Kong and It’s A Wonderful Life have become so synonymous with this issue.
Personally, I’m just going to wait and see but there’s no doubt that we can do without this, and that there is absolutely NO NEED for this version but hopefully nit will live up to its potemtial and hype. I’ll be there regardless next April.
