Have to agree. The visuals lend themselves to the added depth.

Golly gee whiz! I almost forgot about another gem of a film that's not often mentioned; Ghosts of the Abyss. Strong 3D & impressive LFE for a documentary. 😁

Frozen 3D: Picture; 5 of 5.
Sound; 5+.
3D; 4 of 5.

IMO a wonderful story & the wife's 2nd fave next to Toy Story 3.

just to add to this thread:

I invite people to watch CROODS in 3D....that i consider much better than BRAVE 3D;
It is incredibly fun in 3D and way better than 2D version. The 3D is not perfect as there are some problems with negative parallax and out of focus foreground objects....on various scenes, but it is quick...and does not hurt eyes that much.

Highly recommended 3D bluray !

Gravity is not the type of FUN 3D.....it is realistic 3D....and it looks incredible as many said including ME, the 3D is so WELL made that it actually FEELS like 2D !

I just ordered FROZEN 3D + Rise of the guardians 3D (considered as THE REFERENCE animation in 3D !); will update next week probably....

Definitely can't go wrong with either Croods or Guardians. Very good usage of 3D imho.

watched turbo on netflix the other night. It was admittedly the first 3d movie we watched on our new tv but it was really cool. Watched The Hole next and it was dumb as hell.

I did watch dragon gate....on 2 different TV's (passive ET60 & active F8000) and i really don't get it...! why is this movie classified as one of the better 3D's ever ??? me & my cousin REALLY disagree !!!! And in this movie there were for me many negative parallax issues that hurt my eyes....
Yet this is considered by many as GOOD as avatar !!!!!

Detective Dee 3D : Rise Sea Dragon was just reviewed....in a reliable french site specialised in 3d (http://www.halluciner.fr) and is said to be AMAZING..only in china smile.gif
More and more huge 3D stuff will come from them smile.gif as will be IPman 3 in 2015 !!!!!

update here:
just watched my copie from amazon that i got for 20$ of LORAX 3D....and WOW it was amazing ! Colors were out of this world (even if passive glasses don't hurt it) and the extra dimension is very GOOD; i STILL don't understand that in 2014 people are still buying dvd's and not bluray; it is so stupid...

I reconfirm that animation once experienced in 3d...for me and wife is the way to go; i can't imagine watching any of it in 2d again...ever !

I wholeheartedly agree about the Lorax! Very good 3D & excellent PQ imo.

As far as DVD's...they're less expensive & usually good enough for people that aren't particularly interested in getting hi-res PQ or 3D.

To each his own I suppose.

Stupid question but what makes the movies differ in 'pop-out' or 'depth' as mentioned by many?

I just upgrade my w1070 to enable 3D. I tried a TB Iron Man in 3D and I have to say I am not very impressed. I will try to find samples of the movies listed here to verify the "3D quality" if we can call that this way.

Thanks all for sharing your experience !

Depth and pop aren't so much a function of the TV being used but rather the intent and execution of the filmmakers. Iron Man 3 was a post-conversion of a film that was shot in conventional 2D without any consideration for 3D in mind. As such the results were poor (as they are with nearly every Marvel 3D film).

There are good post-conversions out there; I happen to think Captain America: The First Avenger, Men in Black 3, GI Joe: Rise of Cobra, Gravity, Pacific Rim and to a lesser extent Star Trek Into Darkness are all good 3D post-conversions with good sequences.

Natively shot 3D films generally have stronger 3D; films I think show this include Hugo, Journey to the Center of the Earth and Journey 2: Mysterious Island. Older catalog titles like House of Wax and Creature From the Black Lagoon also have great 3D that puts most modern films to shame. Imax 3D features like Space Junk, Space Station, Hubble and Legends of Flight also typically have very strong 3D.

There are also films natively shot in 3D where the filmmakers were very conservative with the depth cues (The Three Musketeers and The Amazing Spiderman come to mind) leading to a subtle often negligible effect.

Thanks TonyDP for the explanation !

Is there a way to know how the movie was shot to get an idea if it's more a poor conversion or a movie shot with 3D in mind?

Thanks again.

http://realorfake3d.com/ has the last couple of years worth of movies and upcoming movies listed as to whether they were conversions or not. When looking at specific movies, I'd go through threads on this board for finding out if they have good 3D or not. Pacific Rim had great 3D for the most part, the Oz movie also did a pretty good job, while there were some natively filmed movies that didn't do much. The biggest difference in 3D quality seems to be the director. I was blown away by Hugo in that it seemed almost every scene was set up for showing depth, and it really showed. I haven't seen the 3D version of Thor, but I read somewhere the director informed by his studio part way through filming the movie that he was making a 3D film. Ironman was a real let down for 3D. Check for threads on specific movies in this forum and you'll find viewers opinions on the 3D quality pretty fast.

The level of depth and pop out are different depending on the film as Tony stated. Depth is just that, when you are looking at a scene, you get a sense of well "depth." As in the person in the foreground actually looks like they are separated from the other stuff in the back of the scene. Pop out are effects that appear to pop out of the screen and in your face.
The types of effects that a person viewing 3D likes is a major factor in whether they like it or not.

For example, Avatar, while considered one of the best 3D movies by some, is derided by others. A major factor is Avatar is a movie with a great sense of depth, but isn't big on the gimmick of pop out effects. So when watching in 3D it is very immersive with subtlety.
While a movie such as final destination 5 and generally animated movies use pop out effects more frequently.

Is one style better than the other? It all comes back to personal preference, some people think pop out effects when they think 3D, and can't appreciate a well done movie that has great depth but doesn't constantly have stuff flying out of the screen. On the flip side you have people who are annoyed when stuff is flying at them the whole movie, but there is that missing element of immersion because a film has no depth. I know I've rambled a little, but hopefully that helps when you are perusing the forum and read about depth and pop out.

ok guys just saw FROZEN in 3D ! while i did not really like the movie (how on earth did they make 1 billion$ with this thing ????)
I would not say it is technically incredible....but it was VERY good ! no crosstalk, no hurting eyes....just natural sense of space and depth...some scenes are indeed more than impressive ! biggrin.gif
I did find LORAX to offer better 3D....but not by much....what hurts FROZEN a little is that 70% of the film is in "night" and when it is day...well 80% of what you see is snow smile.gif
Still, i found it better than BRAVE 3D...even if there were no pop ups and gimmick 3D....all was good and some particles effets were quite nice of the snow !
Just out of curiosity i immediately saw some scenes in 2d bluray....eek.gifeek.gifeek.gif it was SOOO flat i could not believe it !

i reconfirm that watching animation in 3D (with passive glasses as they are very bright)....is SO much better than 2D ! I am completely done with 2D pixar, dreamwork or disney ! 3D bluray Rocks !
too bad many animation movies suck....nonetheless:D

Ditto on that buddy, I think this is going to be on my list of top blu rays for 2014. The 3D added so much to the film that was already outstanding.

 

Absolutely.  At times ---> I <--- couldn't breathe during that movie.


Java developers, when I saw what has been placed into Java 8 I was immediately reminded of how I've spent so much of my life trying to protect engineers from themselves. Lambda expressions are a horrible idea. Gentlemen: the goal isn't to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer. The goal is to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer exhausted and hopped up on caffeine at 3 am. What a disaster Java 8 is!

A number of people gleefully jumped on the "3D is dead" bandwagon.  AFAICT, many of these people don't own a 3D TV of recent design, and hidden within their tone is a distinct "ha ha".  It makes me sick frankly, and their crap is so easily parroted around.  Especially when sloppy reviewers don't draw a distinction between 3D movies being dead, and shlock 3D movies being weeded out because the public as "been there done that" (as I believe is happening in the US).

  2. Gravity

I would suggest OZ: The Great and Powerful, for beautiful 3D (and a fun kids movie).  If you don't have kids, you might want to pass.

One movie that gets little mention here is "upside Down". The 3d is very impressive. Whenever I want to show someone what 3d looks like on a TV I just throw on the opening scene.
