ROFL! I'm sure that's what they want. Problem is, we just convinced everyone they need an HDTV, then a "better" one with "full" HD, and now they need to shuck out a few thousand more for a 3-D one (and wear nifty glasses! You'll look sooo cool!).
And all this to watch a movie with a plot that's been rehashed a million times and one-liners that make Barney sound intelligent. No thanks. I'll take my Kurosawa black and white, with a CRT and one speaker.
