HE’LL BE BACK, FOREVER! MTV Movies Blog explains “Five Things ’Terminator 5’ Should Learn From ’Ghost Protocol'” including:

Don’t Shoot It In 3D
At the same time, don’t make “Terminator 5” in 3D. Yes, we get it, 3D is getting better. “Life of Pi” is great. “Hugo” was wonderful. “Avatar” is the 3-D classic. But those movies are the exception, not the rule. Focus on making the “Terminator” movie itself worth watching instead of having flashy special effects.
