Here's a quick review of the included Disney 3D Showcase DVD:
The disc runs less that a half hour. The overall picture quality ranges from to good to excellent. Scenes of flat animated characters such as Timon and Pumba (Lion King), and Donald Duck are obviously not exceptionally 3D, although it looks decent. The disc really shines when it shows clips from 3D movies such as Christmas Carol.
Here's a rundown on the content:
Disc opens with Timon and Pumba explaining the wonders of the new 3D systems, especially the glasses. They tlak about how great the new 3D looks and you see a very quick teaser clip of Miley Cyrus in concert, which looks excellent.
Next they introduce a series of movie trailers, whcih are:
Christmas Carol: Outstanding 3D effects...looks great!!
Alice in Wonderland: I saw this at the theaters. Good movie, good actors, so-so 3D effect. But I will say it looks BETTER on my TV than it did on the movie theater. I wonder if they touched it up for Blu ray?
Toy Story 3; Haven't seen it yet...great trailer..great 3D!!
Next Timon and Pumba introduce several 3D film clips:
Christmas Carol: A scene with the ghost of Christmas past...best clip on the disc. Beautiful special effects..outstanding!
G-Force: I've never heard of this....a mixture of live action and talking animals (hamsters, etc.) Very funny...great effects!
Nightmare Before Christmas: I have to tell you, one of my favorite films anyway. It's been remastered in 3D...and it looks pretty darn good. I'm really looking forward to it's 3D release now!
And lastly, there is a funny Donald Duck animated film featuring Chip & Dale. Again, flat animation with a light 3D effect. Good 3d, not great. The kids will love this part. I thought it was cute.
So that's it!
