I saw that Honey I Shrunk the Kids thing in Disneyland Paris too (I can't remember if you had to wear glasses or not though). The mouse part really scared me! That was before I wore glasses though so I really enjoyed it but now I avoid 3D as I don't want to get a headache and have to wear two sets of glasses.

3D is rubbish and not worth the extra money imo...4D on the otherhand is a worthwhile experience! Went to see "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" or some variation of it 9 years ago in Disneyland Paris. They had stuff like when the dog wagged its tongue you could feel saliva/spit going on your face and there was a scene where hundreds of mice was scattering across the floor and you could feel them round your ankles. People started to yelp and put their feet on the seats, was quite hilarious and you really felt like you were in the film. 3D just makes you feel more away from the film because of those horrid uncomfortable glasses.
The problem I'm finding now is that my cinema isn't big enough to accommodate lots of 3D and 2D showings of new films so they tend to opt for more 3D showings and therefore there are less times that I can go and see 2D films. It really irritates me. I hope it's just a gimmick and that it dies soon .

3D was only implemented for a bit in Half Blood Prince. But IMO it was nice while it lasted.
I hate it when 3D is never implemented for the whole movie.

I definitely prefer 2D. Cinema is a 2 dimensional artform. It's not supposed to be the same as life (which is in 3D, or 26D if you're a physicist ).
It's clearly a gimmick from movie companies worried about piracy. They figure that because you have to go to the cinema to see a 3D movie they won't lost so much from downloading.
But artistically it's totally bogus. Aside from the light loss problem (up to 30% darker) and the loss of colour saturation, can anyone seriously argue that a great film would be better in 3D than 2D? Imagine sitting watching The Godfather, or the Shawshank Redemption and thinking to yourself "I really wish this was in 3D, it would so much better!"
This is the third time they've tried introducing 3D to the cinema (1940s, 1970s and now). Both times before it has died and we have gone back to real cinema. I predict it will die this time too. Apart from idiots like Michael Bay, most directors seem pretty lukewarm about it when interviewed.
