As pertaining to motion pictures, describes any film that exploits, in its marketing or promotion, the use of stereoscopic (3-dimensional) filmmaking techniques.

This blog is my notepad as I research a nonfiction book spotlighting 3-D genre films of the last century. While the book will focus primarily on films from the 60's, 70's and 80's this blog has no restrictions.

Out with the Old...

I hadn't planned to purchase a 3-D TV anytime soon. I had planned to wait at least until the technology becomes more commonplace.

But this Christmas, with the drop in HDTV prices, my family decided it was time to replace our 8 year old, overly large 36' CRT cabinet HDTV with something slimmer. Even then 3-D wasn't really a consideration. Along comes the Boxing Week sales and a pretty decent deal on a 3DTV package and we were there. The truth is had we waited and purchased a regular 3DTV within a few years I'd be pestering my wife to upgrade to 3-D anyway.

So it would seem that in addition to reviews on golden age and depthsploitation era 3-D film reviews, I may also be looking at newer home video releases. My first review can be found on Rue Morgue Magazine's blog here: Piranha 3D

More to come.
