Just be conscious Al that with Pirates you are probably watching the creme de la creme when it comes to 3D...there's also some pretty poor examples out there.



When I got my 3D tv the fact it was 3D was a bit of a big deal and I truly expected it to be a gimmick. Provided you have the right material though it is defnitely a lot better than a gimmick :)

Which titles do you consider "poor examples"?
It would be good to see some more 3D reviews in the reviews thread :mellow:

I'm glad you feel the same way as I do. Was feeling like a bit of a traitor/mutant! :lol:
It is an incredible experience to have in your own home. It doesn't supercede 2D, or make 2D seem bland, it's just an extension of the whole HT experience :)


hehe definitely agree !

good point, blairy, the 3D have seen so far been impressed. but yeah get the feeling not a lot of good quality stuff out there.

yes keen to know as well. I'll add reviews when get time on any 3D films I have watched, if the reviews not done already :)

definitely I'd encourage any comment here on movies that suck or any good ones as well. good to know whats out there. and not waste money on rubbish !

Not HT related but 3D, went to the cinema last night to watch Puss In Boots 3D, very very impressed, best 3D I've seen so far, even up there with Avatar, the stuff up and around the magic beanstalk was especially impressive.

It changed my mind from gimmicky to 'wow'

To much 3D stuff I have seen demo'd in the shops looks like those pop up books you got as a kid but this movie was 'predominantly' very good

Well, ths thread is only two pages long and there's been a couple mentioned :lol: Intent of this thread is to actually post good and bad 3d movie experiences ;)

The HP Deathly Hallows in 3D (I've only seen part two) is terrible. Watched it with my two young boys. I wanted to stop it and put on the 2D version it was that bad. Of course they were engrossed in the movie and didn't fancy the interruption.

That's the only one I own that I'd really bag out, however if you check the reviews on hidefdigest (link elsewhere in this thread) and search for 3D typically they pan the movies that are not made in 3D and most of those intened for 3D get a decent video rating. On this basis some bad ones are Last of The Airbenders and Clash of the Titans

Thanks blairy.
I'll take this opportunity to say that Cars 2 is incredible in terms of it's technical presentation. A film essentially for the under 15's, but so full of eye candy and fantastic audio, it's hard not to like. Looking down the racetrack, it was like you could see 100m into the distance. Quite surreal. No crosstalk/ghosting at all on a 110 inch screen :)

mlxx my problem was with wild ocean, though resolved.

not to be confused with ocean wonderland 3D the cousteau film, which you commented on. below is my comments experienced yesterday
http://www.dtvforum....&...t&p=1768602

and I totally agree with what you have said

so far best 3D have seen on my system are the scenes you mention, anything from 9 min in is a stunner. at times there are fishes about an arms reach from you. just there ...to admire. lovely colours and details, it really feels as though in the reef there, either in a glass bottom boat or scuba diving amongst the fish there. and yes just so real I'm gob smacked to be honest.

swimming amongst the fishes am hooked on 3D :D hehe

Yes 3D really comes into its own with schools of fish. You can see the distant fish or the closer in ones, and the ones in between, clearly. I get the feeling I could aim a spear gun at particular fish! But if I close one eye, the scene collapses into a confusing 2D amalgam. The smaller and greater the number of the fish, the more confusing they are in 2D.

On a technical note, one reason I think 3D underwater photography is so successful with current domestic shutter glasses technology is that the sea life is obliged to move sedately, constrained by the viscosity of water. It therefore doesn't matter that the video frame rate is slow [24fps] and the Left-Right alternation rate less than at the cinema. [RealD uses 144Hz, most home projectors do only 120Hz.] On a practical note, how else could nature be seen so clearly and so safely, and without being disturbed by the presence of man? I wouldn't want to be diving near sharks or sting rays, or for that matter near jelly fish, large crabs, and octopuses. And some of the smaller sea creatures can be captured close-up with appropriate lenses, in their natural splendour; better than peering through a diving mask, or a portal in an underwater observation craft.


Others in this forum have already commented on IMAX DEEP SEA 3D. I purchased this BD yesterday at JB HI-FI, for $16.00 less the current post-Xmas 20% discount. It runs for 40 minutes. The 3D depth is strong, about as strong as I am comfortable with. The sea life is spectacular. Narration by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet (both sounding like middle of the road narrators, not actors!).


Over Xmas I took some family stills and videos with a cheap 3D camera [Fuji Finepix Real 3d W3 - see dtvforum thread http://www.dtvforum....showtopic=95980 ]. Viewing these today I was very impressed with the 3D effect. For me, it added to the sensation of reliving the captured "moments in time".

Watched my first 'in-home' 3D movie last night - Ice Age 3D presented on a Samsung 55" LED / LCD.

All I can say is wow, this was an awesome experience and the quality was near perfect. At times it felt like I wasn't watching a TV but looking out of a window.
Size of the TV was 100% an issue, it didn't seem big enough on this screen from about 3m but for 2D viewing it seems better.

One thing I did notice was that it took me a good 3 - 5 mins to get use to the glasses and adjust to the movie before I could truely enjoy it. The first couple of minutes I felt like I was getting a bit of a headache and maybe slightly dizzy (could have been the wine though :P )

Watched Toy Story 3D with my youngest teenage son last night and we were both totally blown away!
There was information and detail that neither of us had noticed before. I can only imagine that it was to do with viewing into the complete depth of the perceivable image.
For me, it really was like watching a new film with the same story. Really felt the magic :)
Low lit and night scenes were especially ethereal.
Fantastic! .............. only around $23 from the UK

It will be very interesting to see how Phantom Menace and Titanic turn out.
I imagine that technology improvements to the processing will come fast and furiously if there's a buck to be made with the post conversions <_<

Couldnt source a copy of The Green Hornet in store Rob [sold out so they said :ike:] but worth trying for under $20 even if its a conversion considering hidef digest take on it I thought.. Free delivery and no comparison $ wise to some others I notice :no:

Michel Gondry's 'The Green Hornet' is another in a short line of 2D movies which were later converted to 3D using the new, James Cameron-designed technology

Col, online it's 24 bucks I ordered it. It does seem like good value, not sure about the 3d thing just yet so I don't want to invest in too many movies.

Well everyone; watched Piranha 3d tonight and was truely impressed for a 2d conversion [director had too many complicated shots to use 3d cameras but had 3d in mind when shooting] . Just the right amount of depth with the epson 9000 at medium and many 3d shots had good perspective between distant and close shots :) The far shots were not as sharp and the vast majority of foreground was apropos sharp.

The french director kept things fast paced as needed with these shock/horror/gore movies and the cgi piranha were very realistic.I didnt notice any ghosting until jerry o'conells boat hit strife but it was minimal and would have gone unnoticed if Ide used cinema or thx modes.
Either of these were perfect for the cave scene . Many instances of shots like tree branches reaching 8 feet into the room and a few ducking spears;frying pans etc :hyper: If you dont mind that ;used judisciously though mainly for shock value.

Its got lots of eye candy [french director remember] not to mention possibly the 1st severed 3d member [o'conells :rolleyes: ] among other joke shots ..
A Richard dreyfuss cameo is a clever device to show what this movie is all about ; Christopher lloyd too Compared to the anaglyph 3d version that came on a 2nd disc with the magenta /blue glasses ;that version had screwed up colours and was crap. The lossless soundtrack while not especially bass extended had a well mixed surround field.The above water combined with below water shots of the carnivores going for the kill is why 3d is so suited to a gorefest :cheer: :D The 3dd sequel unfortunately wont have the same director so see how it goes.

Well - we watched IMAX Space Station today and in one word... AWESOME!
Scene after scene of "as close as we'll ever get to the real thing" were before us. Many scenes offering fantastic depth and complete immersion.
Superb clarity and colour.
The "blast off" scene for the Discovery had me covered in goosebumps - and totally in awe.
On special at Amazon ATM for under $20.
Total bargain.

Back on topic, holiday viewing this week has included Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and Meet The Robinsons, both of which have been fantastic visual and aural presentations - the latter especially.

Yes don't know what's the go few bargains like IMAX ones and older 3D. But new releases are ridiculously priced for 3D. The combo packs are absolutely over the top at what jb has them for. Previously they would do good pricing for new releases I wish they would do the same for 3D as well.

They are gouging on the 3D prices and then they wonder why people don't take up 3D or buy O/S
