Ebert: Don't Watch the New Harry Potter Flick in 3D

Roger Ebert dropped his review on the final Harry Potter movie, and guess what? He likes it! But there is one thing he doesn't really like: the 3D.

An original detractor of the technology, Ebert doesn't say that it ruins the film, he just found it completely unnecessary.

Note: This entire movie is dark, gloomy and filled with shadows. So it should be. That makes it particularly inappropriate for the additional dimness of 3-D. There are a few shots that benefit from 3-D (I like the unfolding of the little magical globe) but none that require it. Avoid the surcharge and see the film in proper 2-D with brighter color.

As a devout follower of the Cult of Ebert, I'll heed the man's word. [Chicago Sun Times]
