James Cameron Puts 3D Movies (That Aren't Made By Him) On Blast!

Silly filmmakers!

Don't you know that 3D movies only work if James Cameron is making them?!

LOLz!

The director has recently once again spoken out against the technology being used in the filmmaking process, specifically if it's being converted in post-production.

He explains:

"I maintain you can't do a good conversion of a two-hour movie with high quality in a few weeks like they tried to do with Clash Of The Titans. I don't mean to throw that movie under the bus because my buddy Sam [Worthington, from Avatar] is in it, but I think everybody realized that this was a point at which people had gone too far. You see another stumble with the most recent Harry Potter movie from the same studio making the same mistake - except really getting spanked for it now because they didn't get the film done. They announced it in 3D - threw a bunch of money trying to convert it to 3D in post-production and it simply didn't work. They just didn't get it done. Post-conversion should be used for one thing and one thing only - which is to take library titles that are favourites that are proven, and convert them into 3D - whether it's Jaws or ET or Indiana Jones, Close Encounters… or Titanic."

Titanic, huh? How convenient!

This guy can be a real piece of work, and we don't COMPLETELY agree with the reasoning behind his thought-process, but we do have to say that he makes some good points!

Especially regarding Harry Potter! The movie looks amazing as is, and doing a hack 3D job last minute could have seriously hindered the quality of the movie-going experience!

Let's hope that productions use a little more restraint when deciding what gets converted, instead of focusing on how to bump up the price of the ticket!

What do U think?? Do U agree with Cameron??

Harry Potter Coming To 3D Blu-Ray!!!

harry potter coming to 3d blu ray soon

The only thing better than seeing DanRad in crystal-clear perfect quality is to see him flying around your living room during a 3D game of quidditch!

Warner Bros is currently working on bringing the Harry Potter series to 3D blu-ray, starting with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

They've begun work on the Half-Blood Prince conversion to 3D, and we're glad to hear that they intend on doing it right, instead of rushing through the process, like they did with the infamous 3-Disaster Clash of the Titans.

No word yet on specific time frames for when these 3D conversions will be released, especially for earlier Harry Potter titles, but we're glad to hear they're on their way.

Should be inneresting to see if they decide to re-release the 3D Harry Potter films in theaters, like what Fox is doing with the Star Wars series.

Are U excited for 3D Harry Potter to make its way into your home?

Oh, Jermaine! What'd He Say Now?

Filed under: Michael Jackson

We don't think this has anything to do with his death!

Jermaine Jackson is proclaiming that if his brother Michael converted to Islam he would not have died!

He says:

"I felt that if Michael would have embraced Islam he would still be here today and I say that for many reasons. Why? Because when you are 100 per cent clear in your mind as to who you are and what you are and why you are and everybody around you, then things change in a way that's better for you. It's just having that strength.

"God is so powerful. He was studying. He was reading a lot of books, because I brought him books from Saudi Arabia. I brought him books from Bahrain. I was the one who originally put him in Bahrain because I wanted him to get out of America because it was having a cherry-picking time on my brother."

Not the greatest thing to say as his brother's death nears its one year anniversary, but the Jacksons aren't quite known for the sensitivity.

He did admit that past year has been "tough" and added:

"There aren't no words to describe the feeling. It's a feeling that one would only know once they experience it. We are just learning to live with it. We'll never get over it."

Sad, sad.

Sluttyienna Converts To Kabbalah?!

wenn2830334jb.jpg

Oh, good! Now you can add fame to your already-in-place 'whore' title!

Sluttyienna Miller, who is once again exchanging STDs with Jude Law, is also apparently the latest psuedo-hipster celebrity to jump on the Kabbalah bandwagon!

Sources claim that Miller has been spotted out and about wearing the trademark red bracelet that symbolizes one is a follower of the Jewish mysticism.

They say:

“Sienna has joined Kabbalah and started wearing the red bracelet. She certainly seems fascinated, and with so many famous devotees, joining won’t do her career any harm either.”

Oh good! Converting religions to get attention from Madonna and Goopy Gwyneth!

Way to go, Slutty! This is even a bigger life fail than getting back together with your douchey, cheating ex-boyfriend!

LOLz!

Seth Rogan In 3D!

Filed under: Film FlickersTech TalkSeth Rogen

Shocker.

Seth Rogen's Green Hornet is the latest flick to get the 3D treatment!

Unfortunately, director Michel Gondry shot the original footage with regular cameras, so the time it will take for conversion will push the release date from December 22nd to January 14th!

Not too severe a delay!

What do U think?? Is the 3D worth the wait??
