Re: dinosaur-inspired creatures in AVATAR

It's not your eyesight. The whole 3D thing is a gimmick to 
try to get more people into theatres. Hollywood is getting 
desperate. Unfortunately, as P.T. Barnum noted, there are 
plenty of people who are willing to do things like wearing 
plastic eyeglasses while they watch a movie. "3D" should be 
a warning *not* to go see a particular movie. I'm keeping 
my fingers crossed that JP4 will not be in 3D. 

As for Avatar, what if you download it and watch on your 
computer--is it still 3D then..? 

Oh hey, it's just about time for dessert here.....
