After the announcement that Virgin Media was presenting a host of blockbuster films for one of their big events has now expanded the choice of films to be viewed asides from the mentioned films in 3D. While it seems that we’ll indeed be getting some of the films, it’s likely that Virgin Media has allowed for more film choices that audiences can pick from probably to take advantage of the way films in 3D will now be handled.
So far, few can really argue with the quality provided by 3D technology. It was very popular during the 70s but it then quickly lost popularity for one reason or another. Reasons vary over the topic but some go on to blame the fact that there was some sort lack of creativity among filmmakers and that they had come to rely too much on the flair and visual effects provided by 3D instead of providing viewers with an intriguing plot while some simply deemed it too impractical. However 3D experienced a resurgence sometime in 2003 when it could present the viewers with even more epic views of their favorite films but also began losing popularity when the equipment involved in as well as the budget to afford them was beginning to become less and less practical. Also of note was that when a lot of film companies and producers, like Virgin Media mentioned above, decided against producing any more of them on TV despite its current decision to put out more film choices for its audiences.
It just seems all too bad that Virgin Media has decided to pull the plug on some of the films it was planning to present in 3D. Some of its presentations that will come through would of course include Silent Hill: Revelations, the long awaited sequel to the first Silent Hill film but also conflicted with its predecessor when the creators wanted to be more loyal to the game’s storyline. We also have Wreck-It-Ralph which is a film about video game characters and their activities during the downtime of their respective games. Then we have The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first installment of The Hobbit film trilogy and it has even been announced that the film will be receiving some extended scenes to boot to link it to its upcoming sequels. It has been confirmed however that BBC will be shelving its 3D film section once it finishes up with its Doctor Who presentation.
