My Bloody Valentine 3D

Normally, Iím prepared to go along with an exercise in futility if I get something out of it. Unfortunately, this version of the movie really tested me for the most basic reason imaginable: technical failure!

The three dimensional vision that wasnít; which is a shame because I was prepared to give in to the gimmick. The only convincing experience of this I ever had was a 3D Simpsons showcase I saw years ago at IMAX. That featured horizontal and vertical polarised transparent glasses and it was very immersive and entertaining. My Bloody Valentine on DVD comes with violet and green colours and it simply doesnít work. All I saw was a blurry and monochromatic B-grade slasher flick. Oh, and it does have some pretty gruesomely tingly SFX: Iíll never view a pick-axe or shovel with the same blasť familiarity.

The sole achievement of this botched abomination was making me realise how impressive normal colour film, in its 2D glory, really is. So I persevered through this exiled-teen-comes-to-small-town-after-a-decade-and-a-murder-rampage-in-a-mine-resumes thriller until the end, glasses sometimes off, sometimes on, headache always building, partly to see how cheesy and funny the movie is. I may even pursue a watchable copy of it at some stage.

This movie was my chance to reacquaint with actor Kerr Smith since his Dawsonís Creek days. David Lynch fans also take note: one of the girls killed is Sarah Palmer.

All up: avoid! Unless of course I totally stuffed up and thereís some special trick I have to do to my TV to get the 3D working.
