Sweet. Even though I prefer the first one over the second I am def going to have to check out 2 in 3d. 

 

 

 

 

BTW: Anyone know of any good ones on Netflix 3D section?

Not all 3D theaters are equal.

Agreed. Just like not all displays techs let alone displays are equal.

Sometimes people just have different opinions, and it has nothing to do with equipment.

A movie with good 3D does not necessarily equal a good 3D movie!

One thing that I haven't seen yet on the home front is Indiana Jones style 3d movies.  For my first 3d movie, my dad took me to see "The Four Crowns"... pop outs are expected, scary **** when they're part of booby traps... I'd love to see that on my DLP!

I thought it was a little long, but no I didn't fall asleep. Even though the story isn't my cup of tea, I like the movie for so many other things.

They stopped bundling movies years ago.

Treasure of the Four Crowns and Comin At You are out in 3D versions I read last year. At least, they may be coming out in updated 3D versions on 3D Blu-Ray discs?

The 1954 Creature from the Black Lagoon has several 'pop out' moments. It is a widescreen b/w film.

Not all 3d films contain multiple 'pop outs'.....the focus is simply the depth, like looking through a window. The recent release of the Vincent Price film, House of Wax, is a good one too.

Awesome thread and nice way to spend my Friday afternoon at work (reading) smile.gif

For me I prefer the pop out more than the depth. IMO this is what 3d is all about. i want to see stuff jump out at me. Depth is cool and all but alone its not worth wearing the glasses for.

Anyways I saw Avatar 3D in Imax and ever since then I had to get my hands on a 3D projector. Currently I have a Optoma HD25e shinning on a 110" HCG screen.

Naturally the first 3D Blu-Ray I picked up was Avatar. It is a great 3D film but I am not sure I would categorize it as the reference standard, I feel there is probably better out there which takes full advantage of 3D. It had a couple nice pop out scenes but it really didn't wow me like in theaters (then again I don't have a Imax screen in my living room!)

Since then I have bought:
Journey 2 - Good 3D but not overly memorable
Despicable Me 2 - Loved it!! Not only is it a great flick but I enjoyed the 3D in it
The Croods- yet to see
Epic - yet to see

I have been patiently waiting for OZ the Great and Powerful to get less than $30 (I just cant see paying that much for a movie). I really enjoyed this flick and cant wait to see it in 3D.

I also have Netflix with a PS3 which supports 3D, never thought about watching 3D with Netflix though, kinda figure the quality would be crap but maybe not? Everyone keeps raving about Sammy which my daughter loves, guess I will have to try to watch this 3D on Netflix soon!

Speaking of Netflix is there a list anywhere of their 3D titles?

Thanks for all the great info guys!

Add Ultimate Wave Tahiti onto that list especially the solar system scene but the whole thing is fantastic, razor sharp gorgeous 3D. For the ultimate popout I've seen (and I've seen Sammys) the potato cod scene in IMAX Under the Sea is my favorite when put on still frame, crazy popout

I agree Monsters University was a 3D disappointment for me and my family. While it had a great story and good depth in the imagery, there was not a lot of POP in a movie that coulda/shoulda done a lot with 3d effeccts. mad.gif

Some people will call popup "gimmicky" but in a movie like Monsters University, a cartoon, it is TOTALLY appropriate, so Disney/Pixar really blew it on this one! I can agree in something like Hugo you don't want things flying out of screen all the time, would be a gimmick but in animated movies and comedies (and even action/sci fi movies) come on studios give us popout!

I LOVED OZ the Great and Powerful as a movie. I want to purchase this movie and was wondering if anyone here has seen it 3D? I don't want to drop $30 for the 3D version if it's not worth it. It only comes with the 3D disc and a digital copy.

I saw it in SBS 3D streaming from Comcast either HBO or Starz, I can't remember which. I thought the 3D made the movie mush much better. Even my wife (far less enthusiastic about 3D than me) thought the 3D was better. We watched the first 20 minutes in 2D and took a brief break, while I was waiting for her to return I was playing around and saw it was in 3D. We switched over and it was like night and day.

The movie had great depth that made Oz seems awesome. I remember a decent number of pop out moments, but I don't remember it being too much. Overall, the 3D was much better than the film for me. (I had issues with the Oz character from a film critique POV)

I wish I had seen the movie in 3D. The visuals looked great. And I liked the backstory.
My problem was the portrayal of the wizard. He was weak and never showed any real growth. I think the movie could have been better with, perhaps, some better development of the wizard, or someone else's interpretation of him.
I like James Franco as an actor but I think someone else would have been better.

I can agree with what is being said, the story was a little weak, especially in regards to the wizard but honestly I am not very critical of movies. i will say though, visually, it was one of the most stunning movies I have seen, hence why I want to get it 3D biggrin.gif

Yeah - I can dig it. It wasn't a terrible movie by any means. I saw it in 2D and if I could find 3D I'd watch it again. It had great visuals.

I thought the 3D was decent, but I refuse to support Disney's business model with that release. I won't buy the title at all until they release it in a proper combo format like everything else.

I was happy to see that it was not in the combo format.

If I want a 3D Blu-ray, I don't need a 2D Blu-ray, a DVD, and ultraviolet digital copy - which all cause the price of 3D movies higher than they should be.
