I’m not sure I need to explain again how I think 3D is an absolute abomination. And post-production 3D is even worse. In case you don’t know what that is, it’s basically when filmmakers are too lazy or inexperienced to use the heavy-duty 3D cameras, so they instead film everything the way they know how, and then once the film is complete, they convert it to 3D. Translation? — It looks even worse (if that’s possible). And just to drive the knife deeper into my heart, Titanic will now be re-released in 3D to commemorate its 100 year anniversary. I’m sure James Cameron is crying in the fetal position upon hearing the news. Though Cameron started this 3D debacle, he took years to develop the proper cameras to shoot Avatar. Since Avatar, oodles of studio executives are feebly attempting to duplicate his success, because studio executives are greedy monsters with no artistic integrity. I’d like to close this post with one last inquiry/complaint. Will the size of that board that Leonardo DiCaprio failed to utilize at the end of Titanic look even larger in 3D? It still infuriates me that he couldn’t share it with Kate. Seriously — that board was super big. Couldn’t they spoon on it or something?
When the news of John Edwards affair first broke, I joked with my father about Edwards’ unattractive mistress. “If you’re going to cheat,” I said, “then she better be way hotter than your wife.” My father quickly corrected me and explained that married men cheat with unattractive women because their options are limited. Though I understand his point, I draw the line at Arnold’s new mistress. It just doesn’t make any sense. Plus, I’m sure there are oodles of hot, trashy women that want to have sex with The Terminator — married or not. So why screw the woman that lives in his house with his children? All I know is — Elliot Spitzer is looking mighty good right now.
