George has already been quoted saying that 3D has matured enough to gain his attention and that he'd be interested in working on a Star Wars project.

LOL I read that about three times before realizing you meant George LUCAS, not George of SEGAbits.

But yeah, I think 3D Star Wars would be awesome in theaters. As for home viewing, I'd prefer Blu-Ray Star Wars. The intro to Episode III would be awesome in HD.

LOL I did not though of that beforehand!

Also, bluray Star Wars is most certainly in it's way. The intro is wonderful in upscaled DVD quality, I can't wait for HD!
But what's the gripe with 3D at home? I think it's pretty neat. It's also useful! For example, in football matches. We are used to see them in these isometric angles, so sometimes you can't figure out if a ball is headed to the goal or way far off the post. With 3D you have a much better perception.. I think it's awesome.

My gripe with 3D at home is the price, and the fact that they are pushing "buy a 3D HDTV" when a majority of HDTV owners already purchased a standard HDTV in the last year. I'm not sure of the lifespan of an HDTV, but I love the one we have and do see it being replaced for another 5 years... unless it gets damaged in a move (or a Natal accident). Were I (and I'm assuming many others) to adapt to 3D HDTV, it wouldn't be for quite some time. At least, not until the price drops considerably and the cost of glasses goes down.

edit: and Episode III does look awesome upscaled! I downloaded the Spike TV Star Wars HD broadcast of Ep III and played them on our TV. It looked awesome (though not up to snuff with what a Blu-Ray would probably offer).

It's all communicability. They want the products to sell. It's a normal thing, it's not they are forcing anyone to do anything..
And I don't think 3DTVs are expensive. LCDs are cheap. I remember a few years back, CRT TVs were much more expensive than 3DTVs of same size are today.

That pic is gorgeous.

I'll get back to 3D TV in a moment!

Anyway, talking Star Wars, the political drama was excellent whenever Palpatine was involved. That's one of the things I like about the new Clone Wars series, they always sprinkle in a few political thriller episodes.

As for 3DTV, the New Yorker had a good article on it in their recent issue. The writer speculated that in the future, flat 2D movies will be seen as a novelty just as black & white is seen as now. "Wanna go catch an ol' flatty?"

I KNEW I had seen that face somewhere!

Big Jim was thinking to himself,
Maybe down in Mexico,
Or a picture upon somebody's shelf?
But then the crowd began to stamp their feet an' the house lights did dim
An' in the darkness of the room there was only Jim an' him
Starin' at the butterfly who just drew the jack of hearts

If only Data relived classic episodes of The Nanny rather than messing about with Sherlock Holmes.
