Oakley 3D Glasses – Transformers Edition

Oakley3DTransformers

I have been to a few 3D movies this past year and I keep getting annoyed with the glasses they provide, some are better then others. It seems that someone else realized this and so Oakley made their own 3D glasses and this time around they have come out with a Transformers special edition glasses. I have always been thinking about getting my own 3D glasses but I was never sure if any 3D glasses can work with any movie theater. At this point I have been nudged just enough to get it because they made a Transformers addition, and in addition to that my hatred for the crappy lenses keep increasing. So for $150 you can have these cool 3D glasses and no need to use the germ infested ones from the theater.

3D in 2 Minutes

This is how annoying 3D is, wrapped up in 2 minutes of ridiculous 3D. I prefer my movies in 2D, and movie studios learned that 3D doesn’t guarantee sales and box office hits. 3D is only good when done right, certain ways of producing a 3D movie is annoying to view and some aren’t recorded in the right way. Luckily they have learned their lesson in 2010 and some producers and directors don’t want their movies in 3D.

3D TV/Movies Are Overrated

All this hype about Avatar 3D and all the manufacturers talking about 3D TVs coming out very soon, outfitting movie theaters with 3D projectors. There is one factor they keep omitting to talk about, its those tacky glasses which are in red and blue. The first 3D movie I remember watching was a Michael Jackson movie back in the early 90s/late 80s in Disney Land with my family, and those little things were flying around and I walked out with a headache.

I tried watching a few 3D movies after that but all I remember is walking out with a severe headache, and throwing those glasses in the trash. Its an added overhead for movie theaters, and to have those glasses at home just to watch TV. With TV manufacturers they need a new gimmick to convince people to buy these expensive TVs but you don’t really need it since it won’t be nicer that what you already have. TVs which 120Mhz @1080p is fantastic, the newer ones are causing a certain amount of blur but going 3D is not an improvement just a huge headache and tacky glasses for people, manufacturers need to sell more TVs fast and this is the best way they could think off.
