I'm thinking specifically of how effective the car scene was in 3-d for Fright Night. The full effect of the 360 degree turn inside the car while Vampire Jerry was onthe attack outside was quite the action set piece that definitely won't have the same impact if you don't have a kickass home theatre set-up.
I just wish they had done this with whatever those new rumble seats are branded. That would have been fun.

Also, there was another specific scene that gave me that sense of hieghts which I haven't experienced since Avatar. It was actually a rather subtler effect in Fright Night than Avatar, that I didn't quite notice at first.
If Captain America was actually shot in 3-d, they probably could have made better use of the effect when Bucky fell off the train, or the final fight scene where the audience should be feeling Vertigo as the plane spins out.

I was looking forward to Fright Night, however, none of my local theaters have either of these films playing in regular format, only in 3-D. I'm among those who do not care for 3-D at all ("shot in" or "converted") so I will have to wait for the DVD on this one.
I don't like paying the extra cost, the discomfort that comes with wearing the stupid glasses over the top of my regular glasses, and most importantly I do not like the way the colors are muted by the dark lenses (not to mention the blurred mess that becomes of fast action sequences nor the consequential headache). For me, it detracts from the overall experience instead of enhancing it.
Unless they can perfect a 3-D technique that does not require glasses, this fad will eventually die off.

My wife and I saw a screening of Fright Night. The first third or so was promising, but it went downhill from there. In the end it just felt like another horror movie where common sense doesn't apply.

I was thinking the same thing about Fright night. Why at this time if the year?
They must have something great for October.
Didn't see "Fright Night".

I think you're being kind in you review of "Conan."
