Don’t See ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ in 3-D (Trailer)

We vote with our wallets and we shouldn’t be voting “yes” to seeing classic films post-converted to 3-D. It’s a sham, it’s always been, and it was perpetuated by James Cameron himself. Yet, here comes Cameron’s eternal classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 3-D (at least they didn’t tout it as “the way it was always meant to be seen” or I may have lost it).
Cameron's iconic, perfect, and timeless masterpiece,Terminator 2: Judgment Day,was converted to 3-D specificallyto cash in on the internationalsuccess ofTerminator: Genisys. Being that this new version of the film exists, it makes sense for it to find a release here in the States.Distrib Films will do so onAugust 25th.
Don’t see it.
The entire entertainmentindustry tried to cram 3-D down our throats for the better part of the last decade. They told you that you needed special Blu-ray players, even better televisions, and forced you to buy stupid as fuck 3-D “shutter glasses” that were battery operated (and dark), even though the cheap, plastic ones looked 1,000 times better. In fact, they used 3-D to jack theater ticket prices so high that it’s become an elitist event to have a night out on the town with the family. Yet, 3-D televisions have officially failed, so they’re now pushing virtual reality as the next big thing.
It’s a big tech scam and Hollywood is in on it. Terminator 2 in 3-D is probably the last of this post-conversion nonsense, but it’s also the perfect movie to say “fuck you” to specifically because Cameron is behind it. It’s easy to look back at the release of Avatar and pinpoint it as the starting point to the 3-D revolution, which eviscerated our wallets with the garbage tech. But here’s another reasonto say “no” to this cash grab… Avatar 2.
Why has Avatar been delayed? The real reason? Virtual. Reality. Cameron is pulling of the biggest tech coup once again. We’ll all fall for it and buy into the new theatrical experience. By the time it fails and becomes the next Sega CD or Power Glove theater prices will have balloonedbeyond the $20 mark. And they wonder why people aren’t going to theaters anymore.
While 3-D is already dead, saying “no” to seeing Terminator 2 in 3-D is the perfect way to cap it off. Don’t even give them the satisfaction of going out with a bang (or thumbs up).
