The Amazing Spiderman 3d experience .

I love 3d . I love 3d a lot. I realise there are many if not a lot of people in this world who hate it but I love it.
Ok here is thing I dont love it all the time or in your face all the time. So fast forward to the other day. I go and see spiderman. I had a lot of fun with it. But what really stuck out for me was the creative use of 3d. For a lot of the film the eventuated depth was minimal which suited the story and the feel of the film.
But then when we see Peter Parker finally swinging through the New York Skyline then the 3d kicked in. It was amazingly immersive . For some reason or probably because it was used sparingly I suffered zero eyestrain. I have seen a lot of very badly done 3d that has given me headaches. In my opinion 3d should be used like surround sound on when it enhances the story.
Just imagine a film with distracting noises in the surround speakers all the way through. No they wouldn’t do it. So applying the same methodology to 3d is the way forward.
Also reflecting on the film, Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker was fantastic his performance was very nuanced. The guy has a big future ahead. The film Directed by Marc Webb who did 500 days of summer does the whole teenage angst love thing bloody well in my opinion. The early scenes reminded me stylishly of 500 days. All round a fun film which I highly recommend.
