    The only movie I ever thought would warrant a 3D conversion is the original Matrix.

    And even then, only the bits that are actually set in the Matrix.

    Jaws. The original, not the crappy Jaws 3D.

    I'd love 3D- that works. The 3D they have now is essentially the same thing from the 50-60's only improved on which is to say, not much. Only occasionally will the "effect" work for me. And even then it is not adequate for the cost of the ticket, or the forced gimmick shots used to justify the 3D-ification.

    POTC Trilogy will look very good in 3D. The second and third one have shots that are destined to be in 3D.

    I only go see 3D movies if it's a serious event thing where they give reason as to why, like Avatar and Jurassic Park most recently. The people actually gave plausible reason as to the 3D decision for those.

    I generally never go see movies in 3D. There are some movies that are worth going to see, though. I went to see Avatar in (real) IMAX 3D, and to me, it was worth every penny. The movie was made to be experienced like that. It looked amazing that way. I also enjoy it when it is done to be ridiculous. I saw Piranha 3D, and it was fun and stupid. So for me, it has to be beautiful like Avatar or ridiculous like Piranha. No in between.

    As far as older movies, I would like to see some in 3D, if the effort actually goes into making it look good. Going back to James Cameron, my wife's favorite movie is Titanic. We went to see it in 3D when it was rereleased. It looked great. I haven't seen any if the Disney 3D rereleases, but going by what their blu rays look like, I think it would be worth it.

    So yeah, I could potentially go for Aladdin and Wizard of Oz (but for that, only if they took it seriously and really committed to it because along with Avatar in IMAX 3D, Wizard of Oz in high def/blu ray is the best looking movie in the world to me).

    I'm not a fan of 3D either. I supposed I should clarify. What I would really like is to see a remastered re-release of Jaws into theaters. I just know that 3D is the only way it will happen.

    This. This is the right answer.

    Post-converted 3D is the bane of the movie industry in my opinion at the moment. Post-converted 3D is to film as Justin Bieber is to music.

    How about we just enjoy movies as they were intended to be seen by their creators?

    Not agreed. Jurassic Park had THE best 3D I had seen since Avatar.

    I agree that I hate that every movie is being release in 3D now, but I am all for special events, if the proper time and effort is put into it. I didn't get out to see Jurassic Park, although my wife and I were wanting to check it out.

    I can imagine the kinds of stunts 3D porn would pull, and it's scarred me for life. So many things wrong...:barf:

    I've gotten to the point where are no film is that much of a sacred cow to me that this would destroy it .

    In general, a movie that wasn't originally conceived in 3D is going to be at best a compromise and a gimmick. That said, something like Cliffhanger could be fun.

    I'm not even one of those weird "AARRGGG I HATE 3D!!!" people, but seriously, none. Post conversion is **** and a waste of everyone's time and money.
