Lucas Magic

GPop and I went to see Star Wars Ep 1 in THREE DIMENSIONS today.  I know that there are a lot of people who swear that there was no episode 1, but I find the movie to be entertaining and mostly consistent with the rest of the saga, midichlorians aside.

The observation that really floored me, though, was the 3D-ness of the film looked like it had been baked in from the beginning.  I was fearing one of those 3D effects you see in the Magic Eye creations where it looks like several flat layers in a box.  Instead, it looked like it had been natively filmed that way.  Wow.  Next we'll see some old Shirley Temple movie colorized and expanded into three dimensions.
