3D in Cinemas I have a feeling all of you have heard of this phenomena before. You cannot call yourself a film fanatic if you have not. Imagine you are watching a film at the cinema and then all of a sudden there flies out a big sharp-teethed something that appears to be just a few feet away from your face. It has to be ideal to reach the horror-effect I just described, but really – how good is it? To be honest, I am slight against 3D films – for now. I often get headaches when watching films in 3D. Although less so in cinemas compared to the 3D-TV idea from Samsung, with those active 3D glasses. To start off – we need to get an understanding of how it works. What gives us the view of depth in real life is the fact that we have two eyes. The brain registers or headache, if I choose not to exaggerate.
