3-D to the Rescue?


"I feel a great disturbance in the Force. Its name is 'Jar-Jar.'"

Remember that feeling you had as you left the theater after seeing “The Phantom Menace”? Starting Friday, you can experience it again — in 3-D! But why stop there? There are plenty of disappointing films we’d like to see come right at us.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
Having Indy return in this mess of a film (Aliens? Really?) was a bummer, but it would be neat to see his whip crack above audience members’ heads.

Signs (2002)
This story of aliens who couldn’t figure out doorknobs was the first clue that M. Night Shyamalan was kind of making things up as he went along. But that water-glass-smashing scene would be cool in 3-D.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
An abysmal script made even the most hard-core of comics fans turn their backs on this. But you DID get to see Hugh Jackman with his shirt off, and 3-D could only make that better.

The Godfather: Part III (1990)
This follow-up to two of the most perfect movies ever made fell flat. Actually, we’re not sure it really needs 3-D, since Al Pacino’s overacting practically jumps off the screen anyway.

The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
The less said about these, the better. But 3-D fight scenes couldn’t hurt.
