Need to book for DS1 (nearly 13), DS2 (nearly 11) and me, but not sure which to go for.

2D, 3D doesn't add much except in price. Dh has seen numerous times in both!

Thanks, a couple of friends have said that the 3D version made them feel queasy, so I think we'll go for 2D.

According to dh ( used to work with visual impairments so not as random as it sounds now he works in a cinema!) your eyes have to be perfectly aligned for 3D and a lot of people's aren't hence queasy/headachy.

Plus Hobbit is a long time to build up feeling ropey

3D 48 fps, it's absolutely gorgeous.

I usually hate 3d and get a headache, but this was fantastic.

Thank you all for your input. Have booked 2D as we went to see a 3D film today and DS2 got a headache.

I don't see the point of 3d and hate wearing the glasses so 2d for me.

Zachary - you are so right! I hated 3d avatar as got a serious headache so avoided all 3d. However dh persuaded me to try again and it was amazing! smile. I think I would see a 3d film again - if it wasn't full of 3d gimmick-y wooshy shit but it would have to be in 48fps <geek> smile

I saw it yesterday in 3d. I'd like to see it in 2d to compare. 3d always seems a little odd proportion wise.
