You probably didn't make it out to the theaters this past weekend to catch Dreamworks newest animated feature Monsters vs. Aliens, but apparently everyone else and their mama did, as it managed to pull in $58.2 Million. The cartoon movie co-starring Complex homie Seth Rogan opened in three formats: IMAX 3D, normal screen 3D and regular 2D. And that got Dreamworks thinking about shooting all their future flicks in 3D so they can get that top-tier ticket money ($16.50 for IMAX!).
And, of course, that got us thinking: While it'll be cool to see a lot of movies in 3D over their 2D counterparts, everything ain't supposed to be seen in three dimensions. Don't believe us? We picked five flicks that are better off in good ol' 2D...
Don't get us wrong, seeing Heather Graham and a MILF-tasic Julianne More getting it in in 3D would be, in a word, awesome. But that's not worth seeing Don Cheadle and Marky Mark's mandingos comin' at us...Pause.
TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL
It's hard enough for us to watch Tyler Perry prance around in a fat suit, wig, leggings and lipstick as it is. If we saw this in 3D we may have to boycott and picket Lionsgate.
If you never got a chance to catch this gem in theaters, consider yourself lucky. The most expensive Korean film ever made, Dragon Wars looked like a high school design students final project, or as The Hollywood Reporter's Frank Scheck said, "the CGI effects are undeniably impressive". This one shouldn't be made into a 3D flick unless they're going strictly for laughs.
