George Lucas suggests 3D films are 'simply better'

As Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace hits cinemas in its new 3D guise, director George Lucas has suggest 3D films are "simply better"

 

As Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D hits cinemas across the UK, George Lucas has unashamedly suggested the best way to watch modern movies is with the aid of extra-dimensional technologies.

Whilst Lucas’ remarks might be seen as a shameless plug for the latest offering of the hugely successful Star Wars franchise, the first to be released with 3D imaging, his comments echo a current trend in modern cinema, with a large number of modern movies making the trip to the big screen in 3D forms.

"We're going through a new technological revolution that is set to change everything," the famed Star Wars mastermind said in a letter to Shortlist magazine. "Watching a movie in 3D is simply a better way to watch a movie. It's like black and white versus colour. Watching a movie in black and white is fine, however, colour makes it look more real.

"With 3D the depth brings reality to the digital characters and you notice things in the background that actually impact on the story. It becomes a truly immersive and overpowering experience."

Are you a fan of 3D films or do you see the extra dimensional flicks as nothing more than an expensive passing trend? Let us know via the comments box below.
