HP in 3-D...WHY?

I have just learned that the last 2 Harry Potter movies will be in 3-freakin-D.I only have 1 question....WHY???
And yet, I KNOW why....
First off lemme just clear this up...I have not read any HP books aside from the first 2. I am a HP movie fan.
Next, lets address the fact that this will be split into two movies. Its only for one reason and that money. As far as I know there is no like middle part in the book thats easy to cut off from, right? I mean if JK Rowling wanted to make the last book into like a last 2 books, she would have right? So then why the 3-Dness?Same reason it will be in 2 movies. Money.
Its just drives me up the wall! Warner Bros is going to make like a gagillions of dollars on this movie, and I can almost see into the conference room of the execs.....

Big Movie Exec: "So how are we gonna milk all we can out of this las Harry Potter book?"
Other Big Movie Exec: "How bout we make it 3-D!Its just a fad, thats mostly for kids movies and slasher films, but just think of it! Including tickets prices, we can charge more for glasses!"
BME: "I like it! But how can we double it?"
OBME: "Hmmmm....I know! Do like a Lord of the Rings thing, lets make 2 movies!"
BME: "Brilliant!"

Sorry its just redonkulas.....I had a shred of hope with this movie, like I know books versus movies(heck, I wrote a eariler blog about it!)and there are lots of things left out, changed, etc.But still, HP couldve kpet its dignity intact with this last book. But no they had to go 3-D it up.Ugh.I know for fact that I will NOT see this in 3-D.But I will still see it. Thats the ironic thing. But seeing it in a non 3-D format, is all I can do to stick it to the man.Well thats my rant. If anyone is reading this and thinks I am outta line because I am a HP movie fan and not a HP book fan lemme know. I really want to get the perspective of the book fans. Ok, rant over....for now :)

  1. Completely agree with respect to 3-D, however, to do the last book justice, they need to split it up. Cutting up the last couple books hasn't been amazing. The way to split up the last book? However they decide to do it will be better than leaving out any of the last book pieces. It is complex enough that they'll need as much space as they can get to do it justice, and even remotely make sense of it all. The last portion at Hogwarts could be a film in itself... :)
