As it was a holiday, I took Nong Grace to watch the new Disney movie Brave at the weekend. She had enjoyed the last 3D movie we had gone to see and wanted to see another. I thought it was just a passing fad but it seems that 3D movies are here to stay. We don’t have any 3D TV channels in Thailand yet though they do sell the 3D televisions. At the cinema, it seems most films these days are released in 3D. Personally I cannot see the point and would rather watch a movie without having to wear glasses. But, Nong Grace still enjoys the novelty so we will probably see the next movie in 3D as well.
In my opinion, the studios are rushing to release both new and old movies in 3D as a way to collect more money from us at the box office. The tickets for this show were 140 Baht for kids and 240 Baht for adults. The normal show without 3D is 190 Baht for adults. What do you think? Is 3D just a gimmick or is it here to stay?
