When we were watching "Avatar,"
we were blown away by the special effects, the unreal digital beauty of Pandora
and how many times we had to adjust our plastic 3-D glasses -- which were constantly slipping off our noses because we already wear glasses.
Given the number of moviegoers who wear prescription glasses
, the good people of Hollywood
should really be more conscious of who their audience is. But no, we're on our own, and judging from the huge number of 3-D movies coming out this year ("Alice in Wonderland
," "Shrek Forever After
," "Toy Story 3
," etc.), you'd better be prepared.
Time to buy your own 3-D clip-ons, which will fit over any pair of glasses
. And while these bad boys aren't what we'd call fashionable, at $5 a pop (shipped!) from DealExtreme
, you can't really complain. Plus, you'll only use them while watching a movie, so nobody can actually tell what a loser you are. Until you go out to the lobby, forget to take them off and utterly humiliate yourself.
