The Many Dimensions of 3-D 

Wayne Melton's piece on 3-D movies is somewhat confusing (“Double Vision,” Midseason Arts Issue, Feb. 10). If he is afraid this format will cause Hollywood to remake some dogs? I say let them take the risk. After all, it is said that only one in four movies makes money. There is already word from Las Vegas of 3-D television to come. Network television (aside from sports and movies) is so dreadful that this can only help the networks and the makers of sets that have survived to date.

Melton seems to say that the 3-D flicks should be confined to action, sci-fi, fantasy and animation. “Avatar” seems to be all of the above and a big hit. How about 3-D Imax? How did Richmond miss “Toy Story 2” in this format? Methinks this genre would be very successful. George Clooney doesn't need 3-D to make a movie a hit. He is usually smart enough to pass on bad scripts and I have doubt that studios will bet big bucks on 3-D remakes of weak material. Perhaps what we will see fresh ideas for a change, including this new format. One can hope.
