Although they get a lot of hype, movies shot in 3-D have historically been a bit of a headache. You'd put on a pair of flimsy cardboard glasses with red-and-blue gel lenses that looked like they might rip during a strong sneeze, and then watch murky visuals just for the thrill of having some blurrily realistic-looking thing jump off the screen at you. Lately, though, things have changed. If you go to see "Journey to the Center of the Earth" in 3D, you'll receive a plastic pair of dark...
