3-D or Not 3-D

Through stereoscopic invention
the cinema added dimension
But gimmicky flicks
chock-full of film tricks
were lacking artistic pretension

Read an earlier 3-D limerick here. We found the above poster at Dave's N.Y. Times article on the fascinating history and possible future of 3-D films can be found here.

Dumb Dewey, a sout' sider lout
t'ought he would love T'ree-Dee, no doubt
He watched a mat'nay
but all he could say
"I din't get no bust in the mout'!"

This one was sent around the office today as a favorite, undoubtedly because of AVATAR.

Glad to hear it. I highly recommend Kehr's concise history of 3D in films and their art vs.gimmickry, linked to in the post.
