Monsters vs. Aliens


We’re monitoring the development of theatrical 3-D, which is supposed to revolutionize the cinematic experience as we know it. It’s currently being tested out in animated films like Monsters vs. Aliens and Coraline, and is soon to be unleashed in CGI/live-action feature form with James Cameron’s Avatar. Heavy bets are being placed by studio brass on this updated technology. Blustery PR bromides are circulating about how this will be the biggest tectonic plate shift since the Talkies. Special screens and digital projectors are being installed in cinemas internationally, though slower than planned because of the worldwide economic tailspin. Hey, it’s sorta like trying to launch sound cinema during the early days of the first Great Depression!

We really ought to time our cinematic revolutions better.
