Mamo #232: The Girl with the Mamo Tattoo

There is no such girl. But wouldn’t it be lovely if there were? We look at David Fincher’s mega-zeitgeisty adaptation of the biggest book in the world, before turning our gaze to the biggest screens in the world and their recent, thunderous triumph with a certain impossible mission.

Cineplex Timeplay – Absolutely Lame, yet Strangely Addictive.

Also, I found it a bit funny that you talked about both Rooney Mara and The Nightmare on Elm Street remake, but not both together (since she played Nancy in the film – it was actually the first film I saw her in)

They are also looking as post-converted 3D *GAG*

Any serious GRAND SCALE blockbuster should, no question, choose the IMAX format. Preferably 2D.

With all the problems people have with RealD 3D, I’ve never had any issues with IMAX 3D. I think it’s partially due to the large screen and the fact that they actually use multiple projectors to make the stereoscopic image.

Heck, even post-converted 3D (i.e. 3D scenes in Superman Returns and Harry Potter films) looked great in IMAX.

Umm, IMAX 3D is widely regarded as the worst 3D. Its really not even close. Bad with ghosting, darker because it is a physical medium and infamous for how hard the images are on your brain (which is why people get migraines).

The AVATAR IMAX 3D was so head-ache inducing, I took almost 24 hours to recover. So no, I’m not a fan of IMAX-3D, but since I get the vertigo, and immersion very well in 2D IMAX, that’s my format of choice.

Obviously I prefer 2D, but IMAX 3D has never bothered me. Toy Story 3D and U2 Concert 3D looked and sounded great. Definitely slightly darker but I never noticed any ghosting or blur. Never gotten a headache with 3D… except Tron, but I suspect that was because the movie itself was so awful and confusing.

The first 3D film I ever saw was James Camerson’s IMAX doc Ghosts of the Abyss, so I have a bit of a soft spot for IMAX 3D. 😛
