Too Much of A Good Thing

George Lucas now wants to put out Star Wars in 3D.   Please, George.  Stop.  Please.  It is bad enough that the movie business is trying to make more money by 3D-ing films that don't need 3D (Harry Potter) just so that they can make more money on each ticket.  But to re-release Star Wars in 3D is just too far.  I think you have made enough money, GL.
The negative public reaction to previous films that have been converted to 3-D, Mr. Knoll said, was probably the result of rushed work on those conversions. 
That and the fact that we know we are being gouged.  In Montreal, 3D tickets are 50% more than 2D.  For Avatar, it kind of made sense.  For most other movies, not at all.  If you want me to rent more DVDs and attend movie theaters less, this is a good way to go.
