The only format Im against is the use of 3d if there isnt a need for it. If the film benifits from 3d then thats totally cool, but I'd hate to see them just jump on the bandwagon and use a 3d conversion just for the sake of it.
Imax has always been my perfered option, I highlighted what the studio and the people involved will ask when it comes to the cost side, as in what will Knight Rider benifit from either format.
Either one will affect the budget of the film.
Zack Synder's style of film making appeals to me, Watchmen next to The Dark Knight, Inception and The Last Samurai are among the most beautifully shot films, be cool to have Knight Rider in that textured visual style.
Watched SALT today for the first time on Blu-ray and I have to say what an excellent film, the film itself I really enjoyed, but on a technical saide, the film was crisp, very clear, sounded great, all the visual textures were razor sharpe, would a 3d conversion make this film better?. Nope, no need for it.
If you already have a great film in the can, 3d isnt going to do much more, Imax, I 'd put more stock into so yes thats what I'd choose everytime.
For something as big an event as Avatar or say the newly released Tron Legacy then thats what 3d is for, that I can get behind, given the sheer scale of both films and the nature of the visual aspects, the 3d if done right will enhance, but an ordinary film, na I cant get behind that.
Going to see Tron tomorrow infact, been looking forward to that one for sometime.
