This remake of the 1959 crack at Jules Verne’s 1864 novel certainly captures the kitschy, schlocky feel of a 1950s science-fiction extravaganza, right down to the 3-D effects available in certain theaters. Yet there is a fundamental reason why 3-D technology doesn’t work. The 3-D experience is inherently intrusive. Images invade our personal space, which is the opposite of what you want when watching a movie. The best films don’t jump out at us; they envelop us and draw us into the unique world they’ve created. Every time a 3-D image pops from the screen in Journey to the Center of the Earth, it breaks the magic bubble of the cinema. With Brendan Fraser, whose giant head makes him a particularly unwise choice for a 3-D picture.
