I for one don't condone the use of 3d. But I don't think every shot requires it as if it's some "Cure" to get people to watch it and believe it.
But I think the intelligence level of our generation has somewhat dropped in contrast to the old school. Speaking of the audience. The masses to which most movies are geared for in Hollywood require more than the still matte shot. But I think this will change with time.
Hey Rick...whos doing the matte paintings for Superman Returns? The Orphanage? OR R&H's?
