First it was "Avatar." Then it was "Up." Now, there is a whole slew of new movies coming out in (insert booming theatrical trailer voice here) 3D!

"Piranaha 3D"

"Clash of the Titans"

"Saw 67 in 3D"

Even the latest installment of "Harry Potter" will be in 3D.

There's no denying that 3D movies are all the rage in Hollywood these days. But is this new trend a signal of the future technology of movies or is it simply a way for theaters to charge more money for tickets?

While some people argue that watching a movie in 3D adds a whole new element to the theater experience, others say it does nothing to enhance the experience and in some cases, actually distracts from the movie itself.

But I want to know your opinion. I'm working on a pro/con story about the 3D trend and would love to hear what you have to say. Feel free to call me at 361-580-6514 or shoot me an e-mail at abrandon@vicad.com.
