"1 is its a measure to stop the massive bootlegging problem. make the films in 3-d so they're blurry, and ivan in russia cant sit down and video tape it with his iphone."
But most movies that come in 3D also have the option of the 2D film (minus some, like Jackasss 3D) so that still doesnt stop bootlegging unless the movie strictly comes in 3D format.
"and 2 is to get people to actually go to a theater to see a movie. theaters haven't been getting much business the last 3-4 years, so they think all this 3-d faggotry is gonna draw in the mindless masses"
The 3D pull is more about the money, sure getting everyone to just come sit n watch a movie is a pull, but consider the new prices for 3D movies nowadays (goddamn near $17) and see why they hope this 3D shit rides out on the big $$ before fading into obscurity again...
