Hollywood wants to ruin Jurassic Park with 3D makeover in 2013

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. That's how we feel about the new onslaught of 3D remakes of old movies. From Star Wars Episode I to Titanic 3D, Hollywood just won't let 3D die. Steven Spielberg is joining the likes of George Lucas and James Cameron in reviving a movie with "eye-popping 3D." Ugh.

In what is likely a 20th anniversary re-release, Universal Pictures is moving forward to re-release of Jurassic Park in 3D in July 2013.

Why? Because movie theaters can charge more for tickets and give you crappy plastic glasses. That's why. There's also all of those new kids that haven't seen the 1993 original.

Jurassic Park is one of those movies you don't mess around with. You don't add special scenes in there because the technology didn't allow for it 20 years ago and you don't degrade the picture with cheesy 3D effects that only make your eyes hurt.

We don't need to see a T-Rex eat Mr. Gennaro on a toilet bowl in the rain in 3D. And as CinemaBlend notes, the recent Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace 3D re-release was kind of a miss.

The moral of upteenth time: 3D conversions suck and will continue to suck.
