I posted recently about the movie Gravity and asked which format you preferred seeing it in - 2D or 3D? Here I pick out some of the many responses to my question.

    Why can I never think of anything witty to say when I get here first!

    Last week I went to see it at Screen on the Green in 2D and again this week at the Imax in 3D and I must say, I preferred it in 2D. Maybe its because the first viewing had greater impact? The large glasses were a little annoying and I found myself looking around and at the reflections within the glasses! I did not feel immersed within the film like I did at Screen on the Green? I'm still very surprised by the good doctor and his views on seeing this in 3D?

    I have not seen it yet but when I do it will be in 2D. 3D makes me seasick, not a joke.

    I would like to see a blog entry here in 3D. I'm sure the BBC will lend you a 3D camera.

    I am not a massive 3D fan, I don't think it normally adds to the impact a film has- it can even make a film less impressive as you are expecting more once wearing the glasses. But when it comes to Gravity (and space in general, having scene the NASA imax movie) 3D makes so much difference for the better. I have told friends they must see Gravity in 3D to experience the effect the film maker wants it to have. I loved every minute of this movie and was constantly in awe of the visuals, partly due to the 3D. Only see this movie in 3D!
