A 3D Re-Release of the Indiana Jones Series?

If it happened, would you really be surprised?

 Imagine if this had run continuously until today?

It’s a safe bet that whatever happens to STAR WARS will eventually happen to INDIANA JONES, and vice versa. When the prequels wrapped up, it was only a couple years before the fedora and the bull whip were picked up again for KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL... and so on, and so on. The two enjoy a symbiosis like the ying and the yang, like Batman and Superman, like… Venom and Mac Gargan?  So, even though this bit from Bleeding Cool (by way of Disney Sky News) about a 3D re-release for all four INDY movies is very much rumor, I don’t think it’s really that hard for anybody to believe since, well, Lucasfilm is already making 3D versions of all the STAR WARS movies. 

One follows the other, like two carts racing down a mineshaft....  

In lieu of any gripes about the horrors of 3D conversion (and I'm sure they'll follow below), I'm curious to hear how you maniacs feel about 3D comics. The examples are fewer and farther between in this field, but I thought the epic 3D conclusion of LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: THE BLACK DOSSIER was one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had reading a comic. You really did get that kind of "meta" feeling of this "Blazing World" erupting from the page and surrounding you with all this startling phantomasgoria. It was such a good experience, I really would've like to see it more often. I know a lot of people have problems getting headaches, but I've never had such an issue.  == TEASER ==
 
Actually, if you want to talk about some really crazy cases of 3D in comics, you ought to hunt down a copy of the TERMINATOR one-shot that Comic Vine's friend James Robinson did with Matt Wagner for Dark Horse. That one had a pop-up double-spread of this female Terminator crashing through a window on a motorcycle - - and that's something you just don't see in comics these days.

Hey they did it for Peter Jackson's King Kong! Honestly Temple of Doom seems like the only movie in the series that could lend itself to a 3-D re-release but even that is a push. If they re-release Temple of Doom the only scene that could really led itself to 3D is the boulder scene...I mean what else could they shoe-horn into 3-D? Heart ripping? Monkey brains in 3-D? The mine cart scene might work but other than that not sure what you would do...

I own said issued of Matt Wagner terminator. with the pop up.Warning dont read to closely or you risk paper cuts.That aside imho if asked "If it happened, would you really be surprised? " My answer would be no. 
The real question is would i go see it.An again i fall back on a age old answer..no. 
Sides the fact i wear glasses an a extra pair just um don't seem like fun to me.An what would i gain for this?...Monkey brains in 3d.. hmm may have to rethink this.

3D still won't make Temple of Doom any better. The first and third films are fantastic, but Temple of Doom is way too locked down in it's setting. The films' sense of adventure are their strongest point.

It just seems completely unecessary to do this. I get that they want to make more money off an established IP, but I wish studios would go about it in a less obviously cash-grabbing manner.

worthless gimmicks

I would rather they just re-release them in regular old 2D so we can watch them on the big screen. There are many of us fans too young to have watched them in theaters the first time around.

3D is only good if the movie is made for 3D. Period. Otherwise, it is horrible and a waste of time.

Can't they release a non-3D version too..? Specially since it's so overpriced here and there's like only 1 such theatre and I have to drive 1 hour to get there!

I love Indy and i have all of the movies, but the only thing  i would like about 3D versions of them are the 3D glasses.
