2D provides more dimensions
Why are all the movies from my childhood getting a 3D uplift?
First, it was “The Lion King,” then “Beauty and the Beast,” “Star Wars: Episode One” (3D could only help that movie) and now “Titanic.”
I remember going to see all of these movies in their original releases, with the exception of “Beauty and the Beast,” and they all had a profound effect on me in their 2D glory.
Possibly the greatest influence of all these was “Titanic,” a movie that not only inspired a love of cinema but also caused me to become an idealist from a very young age.
When “Titanic” came out, I was fascinated by the story and watched all the “Titanic” related movies (“A Night to Remember” the 1953 “Titanic,” the 1996 made for television “Titanic” and any documentary on the ship I could find.)
I bought the “Titanic” soundtrack and got a “Titanic” poster for my birthday, which I displayed proudly over my bed for years.
