Default the three musketeers 3D

Great film, go see it this weekend its brilliant, its complete fastasy nonsense but sticks fairly close to the 70's version of the movie but with more bells and whistles and special effects, its funny, its action packed and the fencing in 3D was amazing.
Its just a bit of good old fashioned swash with a big dollop buckling,dont take it too seriously,its not a historical account of the era in time its just a good fun film.
i may even go back and watch it a second time i enjoyed it that much

feeling a need to go and watch all the musketeer films done over the years... they're all fantastic, even when rubbish. Might have to go and watch the new one as well if I can be bothered to drag myself over to a crowded cinema at a weekend... but that doesn't sound like something I'm likely to do will definately watch the new one when it comes on DVD though.

If you can go see it in 3D, i was sceptical about bothering to see it in 3D as everything since Avatar has been a 3D disappointment, but i have to admit it really did work on this film, the 3D sword fighting was amazing and worth the extra money

3D gives me a headache... was worth it to see Avatar in 3D, but I don't think I'll see another film in 3D unless it looks like its going to be equally as epic. Its cool, but not worth sitting there with a splitting headache for the 2nd hour of most films...

I'm trying to get my friends to go with me, to the 2D version--I also have problems watching 3D.

3D giving people headaches is a known sideeffect that they won't tell you about... Basically, because the glasses make your eyes focus on a point they wouldn't otherwise to create the 3D effect, this confuses your brain, and so starts to cause the eyestrain and headaches.

In other words, its not healthy to go watch a movie in 3D.

Indeed, and getting in a car will cause you to be in a car crash. Blanket statements ahoy.

Despite a heavy loathing for the director, I am also looking forward to this. If there are swashes buckled and manifestations of moustaches I don't think I can resist.

Glad I won't be disappointed, but after watching real steel the other day the musketeers will have to be pretty amazing to get film of the week

Apparently, a large part of the eye strain is also caused by the 24fps rate that most films are created in, because the usual blur and artifacts which is usually fine in 2d leads to disorientation and focussing issues in 3d. Thats why the next generation of 3d movies are being shot in 48 or 60fps (eg. the hobbit and avatar 2), which apparently makes for a much more pleasent viewing experience. Might not help everyone, but hopefully it'll help.
