    I was rather shocked that the studio will now make all films in 3D. Has the recession not touched the film industry like it has devestated so many others. It's expensive right, to do 3D? I mean with the new trek movie out and extremely expensive productions coming out, why is it that this industry has come out ok?

    And perhaps on the effect of the recession on culture and arts as a whole. I am a bit disappointed at the lack of productions or perhaps films, or even artists who have not protrayed what has happened over the last 18 months. It has changed the way we do finance, the way economic DNA but not the way we do film or art.

    Just saw my first film in 3D last night it was spectacular! Its a shame you have to pay a premium for it £8.50 a ticket isn't cheap.

    So what happens when these films are released on DVD? Do you have to have glasses then too? Seems like the impact would be severely diminished on the small screen. BTW, the screen you show is not a real IMAX screen and is a rip-off IMO.
