Gravity is the Sci-Fi film of choice this week, but there are several other options. Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith is hitting theaters for an extremely short lived run, but this time it will be in IMAX 3D. This is not a trend that will end anytime soon; all the company owning the movie has to pay for is the 3D and/or IMAX upgrade processing, and they get a product they can stick in theaters and on 3D Blue Ray that they already know people will pay for, based on sales the first time around. I think my favorite to get this treatment so far was the original 1939 The Wizard Of Oz, which was quite amazing to see on the big screen. I am not a horror fan, so I would have forgotten Dracula 3D right away if it weren’t for Rutger Hauer being in the movie. Finally, Metallica: Through the Never is a truly surreal experience with a world-class selection of camera work. It is basically a concert interspersed with an epic journey undertaken by a roadie through a Mad Max-like environment.
