Agreed! Though I did enjoy some of the fan-created versions that were posted on YouTube.

I've got used to getting stuff I want NOW!
Apart from the chart twaddle in the supermarket, there isn't a decent shop within 30 miles of me and I can't be bothered either wasting some of my precious weekend travelling just to buy a CD, or having to wait nearly a week for it to come through the post. I've got used to clicking and it's there.
A giant corporation like Sony loves a new fad like 3D because it gives them plenty of opportunities to gouge people of their cash. They can make money charging extra to see the movie. They can sell a rake of shiny new '3D enabled' TVs. They probably make something off the glasses too. A great chance to cash in if they can persuade the public it's this year's must-have gadget.
There's a reason 3D has never taken off in the past, and I won't be the least bit surprised when, after the novelty has worn off in a year or two, it sinks like a stone yet again.
I mean, The Great Gatsby in 3D? WTF?
