DenisG, thanks for the info, very informative.

IMO, the filmmaker shouldn't really change the 3D to account for display ghosting. We are far enough along now that most displays are really good at minimizing ghosting. Hugo showed ghosting on many displays because it really pushed the 3D, and the results speak for themselves. I'm glad they didn't care if there was ghosting, because we got the best example of non-animated 3D that I've seen.

OTOH, the 3D in this movie was decent, but not really memorable.

I don't always watch the extra stuff on the disks, but I did on this one. The one scene they said they had to shot different was a fast panning scene with the vampires and lycon fight at the vampire sanctuary. They said the camera would have to move so fast it would show ghosting and they didn't want that to happen.

Uhhhh.... think I might have gotten gypped (in more ways than one, maybe). I got my copy from Best Buy and the trailers were definitely NOT in 3d. I remember thinking how odd that was. It was also the first time in a while that I got a single disc with a 3d movie purchase. Both the 3d and 2d versions are on the same disc and there's no DVD or digital copy (as far as I know) included.

I got the exact same disk from Best Buy, and the trailers are in 3D. Must be a setting with your player/TV.

My version was single disc. Im sure it's a player setting on your case. The 3D blus for this movie are all the same. (100% sure of that even though I'm guessing)

The movie was just alright, the 3D was crap. I was expecting some things to pop, so many chances and nothing. Depth was alright at times but nothing special. Big let down on the 3D.

3D items I own:

Sony 46" LX900 active 3D set

Sony HMZ-T3 (Cushion pads and light blocker mod)

LG LW6500 passive 3D set

PS3 & PS4

Sony BDP-S570 BD3D player

JVC-GS-TD1 (with Cyclopital base extender)

Fujifilm W3

Sony Alpha 55 (for 3D panoramic photos)

Quadcopter + Zenmuse and GoPro Hero 3 (Filming...

The 3D varies from ok, to quite flat at times and once again far too often, the characters in the foreground were 2D in a 3D environment! So far, very few film makes have pulled off what I call a proper 3D presentation. I think JC & MS are about the only two directors that have as yet.

This 3D release got 4.5 stars for Video on a well known High Def forum incidently so I shall be ignoring reviews for 3D movies by that individual in future. People need to learn to look at 3D with a critical eye, not get wowed by flying cylinders and blood splatters, all the while ignoring obvious flaws in the 3D presentation. This includes out of focus backrounds that work well enough in 2D but utterly fail in 3D movies.

Rather dissapointing.

Have to admit that I wasn't impressed at all with the 3D in this movie either.Seemed more like 2 1/2D to me.

The problem with a lot of movies, including Underworld: Awakening, is that the framing of shots usually doesn't take advantage of 3D. If you freeze-frame just about any scene in Underworld you'll see the depth, but when in movement the scenery appears flat. In my experience, the movies that work best in 3D, be they native or post-conversions, are the ones where the cinematographer took the time to compose interesting scenes that layered objects and characters at different distances throughout the frame. Alice in Wonderland was a post-conversion but the cinematographer took pains to create some interesting compositions and the final product often ended up looking better than some native 3D presentations.

Not an expert on 3D, but the 3D in this Bluray is more noticable than others. I guess movies like Thor, Immortals, and Priest were converted, so the 3D was mostly the people popping out the screen. Thats it...it was like 2D paper cut outs of people with a 3D effect. This movie has ACTION that comes out the screen at you. Not just a 3D dialogue scene . There was some awesome scenes of Kate jumping out the screen to avoid the mega werewolf's claw swipes.

Wow, I thought quite the opposite. I thought this film had very nice depth, but that it had a lot of unrealized potential when it came to the pop out.

I found the 3D to lack depth and pop...rather flat. However, if your system is prone to crosstalk, there was almost none. Disappointing film as well.

There was no crosstalk, cause Sony took out almost all the contrast, making the movie look like crap

Just watched this on a new LG last night, I was glad they didn't go overboard on pop out. It always feels gimmicky and pop out strains my eyes.

Agreed,this was I talked about in my previous posts.I still wonder why many said this 3D/2D set was great picture quality both 3D and 3D.
