So I have a pretty active and sometimes paranoid mind sometimes, but something odd happened tonight.

My wife had won a prescreeing to see the new movie iron man three in 3d.

A few minutes into the film i noticed that nothing was actually in 3d. I took of my glasses, and it was a regular film. Then I looked around and everyone is still wereing their glasses. Thinking there might be something wrong with me, I alert my wife that the movie is not actually in 3d. She takes her glasses of checks a few times, and realizes that I'm right and continues to watch the movies without her glasses. I check occasionally during the action sequences to see if Mabey it turned on or something but... Nop... It was a non 3d movie all the way through.

At least no one that I could see never removed their 3d glasses. Very strange. I felt like the group was being tested.

It's scary how suggestable and unaware people are. All we needed to be told was that the movie was 3d and here are the glasses and everyone ( except my wife and I as far as I could tell) wore them for the whole movie.

What do you think, was this some experiment on the sugestability of the populace, or did the kid in the projector room just put in the wrong one and hardly anyone noticed?

Even if it were an accident, what does it say about how easy it is to control people?

That said, the 3D itself is very good, with nothing popping out or dipping into the screen more than it should. This is particularly impressive because Iron Man 3 wasn't shot in 3D, but post-converted, a process that often results in ropey visuals and jarring depth mistakes.


Unlike the simply gorgeous Life of Pi, 3D doesn't bring anything extra to Iron Man 3, and there's no sense that it was written, directed or imagined with added visual depth in mind. Having donned my daft 3D spectacles at the start of the film, I stopped noticing the effect entirely after only a few minutes.

That speaks to the subtlety of the film's 3D efforts, but also means there's no added value in a 3D viewing, especially as tickets for these triple-dimensional screenings are more expensive.

The only control of people or experiment that appears to be happening is the studio wanting extra cash without having to do the extra work of actual 3D but seeing if others will still pay for it.

Lol, no you probably were scammed.by the theatre.  Do 3D movies cost more to view than normal movies?

These were tickets that were won for a pre-screening, so it makes more sense that it was an error.  If it wasn't an experiment then I think a few people would have gotten a good idea for an experiment out of it including Seeker lol.

You do realise those 3d glassed only work for 80% of the population?

Almost certainly just an accident, and says a lot for the quality of 3D films that no-one noticed.

Yeah, they don't work for me either, or if they do, it is so slight that it makes no difference.  Don't need them anyway, we actually do see in 3D if we let our imagination go.  It is like watching the wizard of oz, when the color comes on, so bright, it is always a surprise, the reason I believe is that we were imposing colors all along, but perhaps did not know it.  I would never pay extra for 3D which is obvious.

I think only some movies look good in 3D.  I've seen a lot of action superhero movies (a family member always insists on seeing them in 3D) and none of them were impressive. However, I thought Avatar and The Great and Powerful Oz were both pretty neat in 3D.

If that were the case (his vision not allowing him to see in 3D) wouldn't the op notice the picture being distorted after he took the glasses off? With every 3D movie I've been to, the picture looked really weird and not clear at all without my glasses.

3DTVs that require glasses arent actually showing 3D images. What happens is you have two images for each frame. The glasses allow the first image through the left lense and then the second image through the right. Its the brain that assembles both images into a 3d picture.

The frequency at which the glasses operate means that they dont work on 20% of people. They dont see distortion they only see the same 2D image they would do without the glasses on.

I did not know they only work for 20%. But I'm am certainly in the 80% I have seen them there before. So has my wife, we usually avoid them because my wife gets motion sickness quit easily, but she won the tickets.

The whole incident was just strange. Like twilight zone strange. I don't know. It's just odd that no one else noticed.

I never had a problem with 3-D glasses.

If I took them off, the viewing was OK but somehow not fully right, and definitely not 3-D. So, I would put them back on and munch on some more popcorn and enjoy a full 3-D experience.

I must say that I was unaware that some people(20% ?) are not able to experience the 3-D through those glasses.

I would remain skeptical of the 80-20% claim without any sources to verify that.

Iron Man 3 simply was not shot in 3D but had a few scenes added in post-production (through the process of post-conversion). That explains it all.

The Glasses Off Test


If you suspect that your 3D movie really isn't giving you all that you paid for, try removing your glasses at a key moment that seems like it ought to go deep on 3D. The more blur you see, the more 3D effect you're likely to see when you put them back on. Given how little depth the 3D is adding overall, you're probably not surprised to learn that there's not a whole lot of blur to be found in most of Iron Man 3's scenes. But unless you're totally ill, keep them on for the action scenes-- the blur around all that particulate matter is proof of the one part of the 3D that works really well.

That cnn story says the experts they consulted believe its 4% - 10% not the 20% I quoted. The glasses just dont work on some people!

The eyes just don't work on some people! The eyes.

According to that it is not that the glasses are not working but instead it is the eyes which are not working.

Same difference in the end I suppose...

From the optometrist's perspective, the inability to process stereoscopic imagery is, for many people, a treatable condition. Dr. Brad Habermehl, president of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, told me, "You don't have to be a 3D refugee if you get to the root of the problem. The majority of stereo-blind people really can be helped."

...this could be the start of discrimination between those who are h+ and those who are not.

Just wait for the google glasses © to come out and see who will be left out due to bad eyes or bad credit, lololol.

Its about the frequency your vision works at not matching the frequency the glasses work at.
