Steven Spielberg Thinks VR For Movies Is Dangerous


Full article

2016 Cannes film festival runs from May 11-22, where many in the movie industry get together, make some announcements, watch some movies and be merry.

Perhaps you have heard of Steven Spielberg? He has done a few small films over the years, nothing too significant.

Apparently Steven Spielberg does not like of VR.

 "I think we're moving into a dangerous medium with virtual reality. The only reason I say it is dangerous is because it gives the viewer a lot of latitude not to take direction from the storytellers but make their own choices of where to look."

Maybe if I watch E.T. in VR, I want to see what color the M&Ms are? Or look up at the space ship? Maybe I just want the freedom to look where I want?
