This bring me on to a complaint, actually. Pixar have only started making every film in 3D to prevent piracy, yet for me and my girlfriend to watch Up it cost us over £18... that's over £9 each. Now, granted, you can also watch these films in 2D, but then you feel like you are only getting half the movie you went out of your way to watch in the first place. No way should a trip to the cinema cost £18 for 2 people. What about large families? The kids aren't going to want to sit through the 2D film whilst their friends have watched it in 3D, meaning that parents are going to have to fork out upwards of 30/40 pound for ONE film?

This is why piracy exists - people fed up of the money hungry habits of big entertainment corporations. The only reason why Pixar manages to keep us coming back is because they regularly churn out quality products. In times when money is tight it is ironic that a business built on capturing the imagination and innocence of children doesn't lower its extortionate prices.

We took our kids and their friends to the cinema. Oops, now we can't afford to eat.


**** you Disney.

But still when it'll come out on DVD, it'll be 2D. Here a movie only stays in the theater for a maximum of 1 month, and there's no theaters that show old movies. So all we do is get the DVDs pirated.

Now I don't know which was first, the over-piracy or the movies' one month only theaters. Either way, it's not working, and Disney is getting a bit too greedy.

I'm thankful my eyes are fucked so I can't watch 3D and so save myself some cash!

It's aggravating that even with all these technological advancements, the 3D glasses still end up making you look like a twat.

I can only see the 3D effect for the first 15 minutes before my eyes get fucked up, and those 15 minutes are usually spent on the trailers before the show.

I saw it in 2D and it was really good. I don't know, it might have been better in 3D, but there was nothing wrong with good ol' 2D for me

ROFL. I can only see out of my right eye so I am thankfully excluded from looking like a pleb!

Yeah I only have 25% vision in my left eye so I only see through one eye. I get regular check ups and if I had corrective surgery for it, it would do more harm than good re: headaches etc. My good eye has perfect vision though and is much stronger than most peoples.
