Every major moie that comes out now is in 3D and there are far more 3D sessions than normal sessions. I have this feeling that it would just make me feel ill as I get motion sickness relatively easily.
Also, silly question but I presume you need to wear the glasses? Or is that not the case anymore? If you do wear glasses are they easy/comfortable enough to wear over normal eyeglasses if you wear them?
And finally, does anyone now if being colour blind effects your ability to watch 3D movies?
I guess I am just getting a little annoyed at trying to find a non 3D session when the 3D sessions are often at better times. Maybe I should just give in and go to the 3D sessions.
So can anyone convince me they really are that much better.

You do need to wear the glasses (Actually, I find them really uncomfortable, and pull them down as often as possible. You can see most things without them, but you don't get the 3D effect and some things are blurry - it depends on the scene) They're pretty big and I imagine that you'd be able to wear them over normal glasses.

Regardless of whether it's 2D or 3D I have found that if the scene is too fast, that's when I feel nauseous. I do sit as far back in the cinema as possible and I have found that not being so close to the screen helps.
Not sure if your local cinema does it - but we have cheap days, advance screenings and "family" movies where the ticket prices are reduced. The kids movies are a little calmer it seems, so might be good for a trial run.

I'm not convinced on 3d yet either. I once saw a 3d movie at the Imax many many years ago, and although it was ok, I also found it frustrating.
Me too. I dont wear glasses at all but I found that my eyes took some adjusting to the way they needed to respond to 3D imagery. I'm also not convinced it doesn't cause stress, and possibly damage over the longer term, so I haven't seen one since.

Not a big fan of 3D.

I find it takes a good 15 mins for my eyes to adjust at the start of the film, very fast sequences are a bit blurry for me too.
And once I adjust, I get too into the movie to notice the 3D anyway.

I wear glasses and I find the 3D glasses to be fine to wear over the top. My mum has significantly better eyesight than me, but still wears glasses, and finds that she can see fine just wearing the 3D glasses - so play around a bit.
Interestingly - DH works for a big movie production company here and last year (both in the UK and worldwide - but no idea about Australia specific) overall movie watching in cinemas was down but revenue was slightly up. And they directly credited the increased cost of going to see 3D movies over regular movies.
