Why I Won’t Be Seeing Harry Potter In 3D.

July 15, 2011 by
I don’t even have the words to convey how excited, sad, thrilled, depressed, and anxious I am about the final Harry Potter movie coming out. Basically, if you threw almost every emotion into a blender and then pureed it, the resulting goop of emotion would be close to what I am feeling. I do have one very definite emotion though when it comes to seeing this movie in 3D, and that emotion is “Hell no!”
I’m not a fan of 3D. At all. I’ve given it a chance but every time I try seeing a movie in 3D, I have three thoughts.
1. These glasses are stupid.
2. My head is starting to hurt.
3. I don’t see anything particularly special happening. Is everyone else seeing something I’m not? Are my glasses broken?
Also, my everyday life is in 3D. Isn’t it more special to go see something not in 3D? I much prefer 2D. 2D is special. 2D is something you don’t see everyday. Unless you count watching TV or surfing the internet. OK. 3D and 2D are both equally un-special. But at least with 2D I don’t have to wear special glasses that make my head hurt. Oh yeah, and 3D movies are more expensive. You’re basically paying for a headache.
As if these reasons weren’t enough, I have an even better reason not to see Harry Potter in 3D. I’ve read all the books (like 50 times) so I know what happens, and I know I’m going to cry. A lot. There will be a LOT of tears from me. In the last movie, I started crying right at the beginning (When Hermione had to erase her parents memory of her), and continued to cry off and on until the final credits. I even had to choke back audible ugly crying when Dobby died. So, I know that I am going to be doing lots of sobbing in this film. And who wants to keep lifting up stupid 3D glasses every 5 minutes to wipe the tears out of their eyes? Not me. I don’t want to be fussing with glasses I don’t even need to be wearing when I’m trying to address my very complicated Harry Potter finale emotions. If I saw Harry Potter in 3D, my glasses would be all fogged up from my pathetic crying and I would probably miss exciting parts of the movie. Basically, seeing Harry Potter in 3D would ruin my final Harry Potter movie experience. And I won’t stand for it! I will not stand for it, I say!
What are your Harry Potter finale plans?? If they involve 3D, please disregard this post but don’t come crying to me when your head hurts and you missed large bits of the movie because you took your glasses off to wipe tears from your eyes. I warned you.
