Roger Ebert, Not Exactly a Fan of 3-D

We're not really surprised that Roger Ebert loved Up, which is set to make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow night, but we were a little surprised to discover that he staunchly opposes 3-D films. Although he saw the film in a traditional 2-D setting, he writes of being "afraid [that] the brightness and delicate shadings of the color palate [sic] will become slightly dingy, slightly flattened out, like looking through a window that needs Windex." He also adds that "The effect of 3D adds nothing to the viewing experience." We expect you'll be getting a call from Jeffrey Katzenberg any moment, Roger. [Sun-Times]
