It’s my turn to comment on the 3D effect as I just came back from BestBuy
1/ overall compared to the RealD effect seen in theaters, I’d give this an 8/10
2/ most people here say it adds depth but no pop-out effect. This is 100% accurate.
3/ no double image at all, as I really tried to look for it. The image through the glasses is very sharp.
4/ the 3D effect at 1 scene makes Susan (what’s her name again? now I can clearly remember she said “the name is not Susan”) look slightly detort. Her head appears too far from the shoulder when she turns sideway.
5/ the scene at the freeway, the 3D effect is very subtle, almost the same as seen without glasses
6/ I hope I took away 2 points because of this movie, not because of the TV itself because I spent a fair amount of time watching the movie without glasses. And it looks normal for the most part (the double images are not far away from each other); that means the 3D effect of this movie is not very strong.
I think Samsung made a wrong choice using this title as the 3D demo
7/ when I was there, many people checked out the 3D demo did not realize they needed to turn the glasses on. I hope none of us here made that mistake
Ok, I also have a few questions. Hopefully, anyone who has the whole 3D set at home can answer
a) Is there any setting on the TV or the bluray player to increase/decrease the 3D effect?
b) When you watch the movie quite far from the TV, is the 3D effect still the same as watching it from upclose (BestBuy did not let me move the glasses, so I had to seat right in front of the TV)
