What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

    But it's converted to 3D, so why would you even want it in the first place? Even believers in 3D say that converted movies look terrible.

    I haven't seen any converted 3D movie so I didn't know there all concidered but I had a feeling that Lion King would be awful in 3D.

    It looked awful in the freaking commercials. That is not a good sign.

    films that just pull a 2D image out at you like a dollar store pop-up book.
    Actually... I think that the pop-up book idea could make an rather interesting film concept where 3D might actually bring some artistic value to a movie, rather than being a cheap gimmick. Like...if the point of the film was that it was a pop-up book or the film was intentionally done in a pop-up book style, maybe a 2D animation where the 3D is layered to give the effect of viewing a living pop-up book. I can actually view this as being something I'd want to see.

    It's worth noting that the 3D in the new Paper Mario game on 3DS looks stunning.

    I saw it. It was... interesting. It definitely wasn't layered like I assumed it would be. It felt almost as if they had converted the characters into 3D models, but they still looked exactly the same (I can't think of a better way to word that, sorry. :V ) All in all, I wouldn't be against them doing more movies like that.

    Unless you are watching Clash of the Titans remake. Seriously, Liam Neason's hair is BEHIND his face and shows no spacial connection to his temple at all.:rolleyes:
    Or The Last Airbender.

    Kung Fu Panda 2. The opening is EXACTLY that, only with Chinese Shadow puppets!

    But isn't it weird to have shadow puppets that pop out of the screen?

    No, they do the opposite, actually. The intro goes INTO the screen. There is no pop-out from what I remember. It was really impressive.
