Mits 65737, IR Emitter, xpand 103

The space scene with the floating ticket, showed atleast 9 feet of depth with me sitting at 10 feet. That right there was worth the $3000 dollar admission

What kind of display do you have? I noticed a good bit of ghosting on Piranha, particularly the opening credits, on my Samsung PN50C7000.

Piranha 3D was actually a fun campy type of movie. I remember watching the original Piranha when I was a kid, and found this new version to be fun, and I thought the 3D effect worked well.

So hard to figure these movies out with so many wildly different opinions on the 3D. First the RE debate and now this movie.

Blu Ray... 3-D TV... 4K... I Like New STUFF!!!

Difference is Piranha is something I would have bought in 2D anyway. I can't say that for the other fourteen 3D titles I own. The movie itself is a lot of fun.

I personally use the IMAX movies to show off the 3D on my TV. I feel that the 3D on those are more "intense" than most because there is a lot more action close to the camera (fish swimming by, astronauts flying toward you, etc). In terms of regular films, obviously Avatar is amazing, followed by (in no particular order) monsters vs aliens, how to train your dragon, alice in wonderland, and open season. I have yet to try bolt or ice age, but have heard those are pretty good too. Hope this helps!

Ok the movie isn't great, but it has some pretty good dance scenes...more importantly(according to the thread title), the 3D effect beats Avatar on my 73" Mits. Right now, when it comes to 3D, the first dance battle scene in this movie is the one to beat.

it's funny to me when I see someone's list of movies and I don't see this one mentioned...it's almost like it's a secret.

I have Under the Sea, Grand Canyon, Deep Sea and Space Station and would probably put them in that order with Under the Sea being the best. Having said that, they are all fantastic IMO............all have amazing and consistent 3d use (besides the first ~3 minutes of Space Station which is not in 3d for whatever reason). Cant go wrong with any of these.

I'm with ricabullah on those choices, but I don't think I could watch the relentlessly insipid Step 3D for more then a few minutes at a time, super 3D notwithstanding.

On the other hand, I'm surprised that Piranha scores so high with many here for 3D. I thought the movie itself was a lot of laughs, and the bright sunny exteriors were pretty dazzling, but from my perspective, the lack of deep focus in most scenes greatly limited the 3D depth.

How does 3D on cable (Comcast VOD for example) compare to the same program on Blu-ray? I've watched a few things on Comcast VOD (just watched the first 10 mins of Ice Age) and am curious how much better these things will look on disc.

Finished Coraline last night and probably the best thus far of the six 3D movies I have watched. The sense of depth along with an amazing amount of detail is breathtaking!

I can't comment on Comcast per se, but the differences between cable and blu-ray are pretty apparent to my eye.

At the Panasonic mall demo I witnessed in early December, they showed off displays featuring blu-ray and a Direct TV feed. Before the presenter said the first word, I knew the Direct TV feed wasn't blu-ray. It certainly was not too shabby, by any means, but with 3D every dollop of picture quality adds to the illusion. I'm sure tech guys here are better able to quantify those differences better then I can.

I've now had a chance to compare at home via TWC. While I find the 3D effect itself pretty comparable, the differences in picture quality are as obvious as I originally thought. The only title I compared directly was the IMAX documentary "Sharks" (I purchased the blu-ray from Amazon.UK). The cable OD presentation looks fine, but lacks the breathtaking snap of the blu-ray in my opinion.

Out of the 3D movies I've seen (RE:3D, Avatar, Despicable Me, M vs A) I think Resident Evil was the best live action and Despicable Me was the best animation.

I liked that RE:3D had lots of depth and just enough pop to make us duck a couple times. Despicable me was awesome with it's use of depth with layers (example: when first seeing the minions in the lab they were showing some characters moving in front of others). It also had a good amount of pop out scenes, which was cool to see since it fits in well with the animated kids movie genre.


I have Polar Express (which I loved in IMAX 3D years ago) and Cloudy with a chance waiting for me to pick up at the store so I'll see if those change my opinions at all.

As a side note: Avatar was just meh to me. That movie was an hour and a half too long, though it was the first 3D we watched on our panasonic VT20 and it was a good choice to show us how much nicer 1080p looks color and detail wise than our old 32" flat panel. I'm waiting for my30 day return period to go by so I can sell or trade Avatar. we tried to watch it a second time with friends, but since they already had seen it in theaters in 3D they even got bored with it at about the halfway point.

It's pretty much crap. They show a few short clips of Christmas Carol, Alice etc. But the rest is poorly animated filler of a couple Lion King characters (who I find annoying) and an old Chip and Dale cartoon. It's main use will be to verify that your setup is working, if it's your first 3D material.

It is VERY good. I would put Open Season, Polar Express and HTTYD slightly above it though as far as the animated titles I have seen. All of these are great though.

For those interested, Frys is having a sale on these 3D titles between 1/21 to 1/27

$14.99
Dinosaurs Alive IMAX (3D)
Grand Canyon Adventure IMAX (3D)
Wild Ocean IMAX (3D)

$24.99
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (3D)
World Cup 2010 (3D)
Monster House (3D)

$26.99
Piranha 3D (3D)


While Grand Canyon has received a great deal of praise (despite some color issues), I don't think Dinosaurs Alive 3D looked as good from what I heard some people say. I'm wondering about Wild Ocean IMAX 3D and that World Cup 3D.
Anyone with impressions on those?
