Heartbreaking and an insult to Peter Jackson if this isn't released in its original 3D format
17 November 2018
After all the trouble Peter Jackson and his team took to painstakingly restore this footage, I am mortified to not see the 3D version of this film listed for purchase.
Frame rate and colour are only half the story, this really comes to life in 3D - and before all the 3D haters come out of the woodwork, that's the director's preferred version, not this compromised 2D edition.
I won't buy this film in 2D. It was made in 3D for viewing in 3D.
