Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D trailer

JourneytotheCenter3D.jpgOh dear lord, the trailer for the new Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D just shows me every single reason why I hate these 3D films.

While you're watching it you just see every possible excuse for something flying at the camera, it's horrendous.

It is as though they've just setup as many scenes to throw something right at you, and while that's fine and it's how the 3D works, it's also why I hate it.

I feel I'm being ripped out of the story to witness something coming towards me, the whole story stops while they fire off the latest gag to throw something at you and it all feels so false. It almost feels as though the characters are going to start talking to the camera and addressing me directly, and not in a clever way like Funny Games (Filmstalker review) did either.

It just seems all so false and contrived to me. If they are going to have a film in 3D then let the story play out as normal and don't try and manoeuvre things to fly at the screen like this. Do something clever, not something they were doing when 3D first came out years and years ago.

I mean just watch that scene with the 3D audience watching the film and seeing the dinasour come out - what is that all about? Is that meant to be a clever parody of the film itself but within the film? It looks terrible.

Anyway, here is the trailer for the incredibly contrived looking Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D. Oh Brendan Fraser, has it really come to this?

Here's the trailer from YouTube [Flash]:

From Movie-List Forums come some links for the trailer in high definition - wooo! See it in 480p, 720p and 1080p if you must.
