Atomium Escalator: Travelling through hyperspace in the Belgian tourist attraction
I recently finished reading Special Effects: The History and Technique (Richard Rickett, 2006) and in addition to illuminating me as to how a vast range of special effects are achieved it's introduced me to a couple of awesome coinages that never really seem to have taken off – depthies and flatties. In other words 3D and 2D movies.
The terms were apparently coined in the '50s 3D boom when there were probably still a few people calling movies that weren't silent talkies. As much as I like them, and despite the fact that with the recent boom in 3D it would be a good time to bring them back, flatties does sound a little derogatory towards 2D movies.
Suggesting 2D movies don't have depth is unfair especially as there's still a bit of gimmickiness surrounding 3D films, making most of them more shallow than a good flattie that doesn't need an extra dimension for people to enjoy them.
