3D movies - soon to be a thing of the past

Do you have trouble concentrating when you see a film in 3D - I usually get headaches.
Believe it or not it looks like movies in 3D might not be around for that much longer -
A review and critique on these by Walter Murch posted by Robert Ebert, gives a great outline of just why.
Sum-up: Movies that succumb to the 3D appeal are lacking in film making technique and skill.
I agree with him, minus the evolution of humans over 600 million years, - I like good ol' fashion 2D.
Filmmakers are storytellers - they need to have variety, and that one-of-a-kind appeal. Or at least steal from the great ones of the past.
Why not try a couple black and white films - Hitchcock rocked it - and he's legend.
Tell me, have you even seen Strangers on a Train ?
