In four and a half billion years of existence there have been no creatures more dramatic or scarier. Whether they would be as popular if they existed today and were stomping down the high street, I don't know, but they're perfect for films because they are more spectacular, more awesome than most animals today, more like monsters, and yet they are real.

The new Walking With Dinosaurs film as I think this is the most realistic portrayal of dinosaurs that's ever been done on the big screen. I spend my life studying dinosaurs, pouring over the dry remains of their multi-million-year-old bones. This film brings dinosaurs to life unlike anything I've ever seen before. It brought a tear to my eye seeing the Gorgosaurus for the first time.

Throughout my film-going life, effects have been if not quite a dirty word for certain audiences, then one met with a weary roll of the eyes. But I've also always felt the snottiness around effects arose because they reminded critics in particular of the movies' origins as a circus entertainment, a trashy diversion designed to thrill sensation-hungry crowds.

Why Doctor Who in 3D Still Isn't Enough for Me to Invest in 3D TV

Dr Keith M. Johnston | Posted 15.04.2013 | UK Entertainment
Dr Keith M. Johnston

The news that Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special would be broadcast in 3D should, given my interest in 3D media and my long-term fandom of the Doctor and his TARDIS, be the final tipping point that pushes me over the edge into investing in a new 3D TV.

No film-making tool has attracted the same level of disdain as 3D has over the last few years. Now into its third wave (fourth if you add the brief dalliance in the 20s to the more famous periods of the 50s and 80s), 3D is inspiring film fans and critics to unite in their condemnation.

There's a massive billboard in the Bank underground of that kid who played Gilbert Grape lovingly looking into the eyes of the naughty nun from The Extras. Which can only mean one thing; Celine Dion is looking good for some royalties.

Despite its drawbacks, 3D technology will continue to invade our lives, and it will only be a matter of time before we see 4D technology, which will see no doubt George Lucas sitting behind you at the cinema, poking you in the back of the head.
