On the first page of The Catcher in the Rye Holden Caulfield announces: If there’s one thing I hate, it’s the movies. Don’t even mention them to me.

I’ve received a lot of emails on my post about Why 3D Does Not Work. Many agree, but some others seem to have problems with it. For those left scratching their heads, here are five simple points: The 3D object exists on a 2D plane. There is no weight to this 3D object. It’s paper-thin. […](image)
