Got to see Gatsby last night in RealD 3D. It was insanely gorgeous and worth every penny of a surcharge. Depth and roundness were perfect in almost every shot, with the biggest exception being the converted footage of 1920s clips, although those were an interesting novelty. Everything was beautifully composed for 3D opulence. There was a bit of quick-cutting to set the tone in a few scenes, but somehow, that worked okay too. I think he gave those shots very simple, but memorable compositions and held them just long enough for the viewer to see what's going on. Honestly, this is one of my new favorite 3D movies--up there with Hugo, Avatar, Life of Pi, and Prometheus. I was mesmerized for all 142 minutes.
For 3D trailers, I saw Gravity, World War Z, Epic, and the Despicable Me 2 light bulb short. The converted faces in Gravity didn't look ugly or draw my attention at all. I'm sure that the space suits and helmets were CGI. That movie is going to be one intense 3D experience. World War Z looks like a fun conversion if you're like me and have a soft spot for zombie apocalypses. Epic looks like a beautiful adventure. My only worry is that those moronic snails will ruin the fun and immersion with too many dumb jokes.
