Have a copy of this myself. Very nice conversion.

I checked out Legend of Hercules 3D today. I wouldn't call it a must-have film, and it has more in common with the Spartacus TV series and 300 than the classic Hercules myths, but I did find it sufficiently entertaining and not nearly as bad as the reviews made it out to be.

In terms of 3D, depth and pop are both very good with lots of stuff poking out of the screen (perfectly appropriate for a movie like this) and an almost constant sense of depth to the sets and environments. This movie definitely does not fall into the "subtle" 3D category.

Worth a look for anyone in search of a 3D fix at home in my opinion.

I have to agree with you. The reviews were so bad they set my expectations for this film to close to zero. After seeing it I'd give it a 6/10 for content and a 9 or 9.5/10 for 3D -- great 3D in my opinion.

I'm in complete agreement. This is my demo disc. I am closing in on my 100th 3D Blu-ray (bought #97 two days ago). (And yes, I've watched them all save #97.)

My faves are:
Wreck it ralph
Despicable me 1 and 2
Hotel transylvania
and i have beauty and the beast and lion kind in 3d but haven't opened them yet, just bought them a few weeks ago. I will let you know how those are. I saw gravity in 3d at my friend's house and it is good but not great, i feel the 3d effect is more into with animation in despicable me series wreck it ralph and hotel transylvania, also saw little mermaid in 3d it was not bad but not great, bought it anyways due to me seeing in theatres when i was young and it is a cartoon animation that disney hasn't done in a while due to pixar kind of animation, i wish they would do a new one in 3d.

i confirm rise of guardians is the best 3D i have seen! not only are there no technical glitches on the 3D (very stable, and i am very picky); but there are also no forced effects nor gimmicks...it all feels entirely part of the story

this is definitely a demo disk along with gravity for me ! i bought it very cheap too on amazon !
i am really looking forward to house of magic 3D; seems to be the new reference in Europe; but the disk is way way too expensive; i'll wait

hi all ! long time no see...

i would like your opinions about the 3D in GODZILLA (mixed reviews...some say great, other say good but not necessary) and transformers 4 and what about MALIFICIENT (too DARK to see the 3D)?

i will order them on amazon (cheapest as always) when prices go down....so need input !

Haven't seen it yet(in 3D that is)but I've heard wildly varying opinions on Godzilla too. It's inexplicable to me why some expensive effects laden summer blockbusters end up with less than AMAZING 3D, but it seems to be the case more often than not. Maleficent is a case in point in my opinion. Unforgivably weak 3D.

Transformers: Age of Extinction on the other hand, is an absolute MUST PURCHASE if you're a fan of 3D. I think it should serve as an example of what strong 3D can do for a big action movie. Even a, well...not so great one.

I watched Godzilla last night in 3D, and it was pretty lackluster imo.

By the way, I'd have to say that Maleficent is a stunningly beautiful 3D film. It may be a little too much positive parallax for some folks, but not for me: I prefer the vast majority of my film to be behind the screen.

+1 for MALEFICIENT ! i disagree with ekaaaans , really this dude is weird! everyone including me, was stunned by this movie...including pro reviews in EUROPE !
film was GOOD and 3D did BRING something to the movie REALLY, the sky scenes are amazing and 3D is SOLID and very stable ! i was not impressed by the sound however as surrounds are weak and 70% of audio is FRONT centered....

No one here mentionned the last W-Xmen movie???? it did get a 4.5/5 on 3D on bluray.com ; ANYONE ???? is it worth it ?

Most recommended titles here offer good 3D depth. But after my initial wow's on the first few movies, I'm getting jaded. Very few movies offer good projections out of the screen towards you. For the few that do, the objects are usually a blur mess. I think 3D can only be truly impressive if the field of vision extends all the way out towards us and deep inwards into the depths, with the full field of vision sharp in focus. Only then you can really feel you are physically in it. The only instance I found an object project way out of the screen and was in sharp focus is in the fight scene in Resident Evil: Retribution when a gun magazine flew some 6 feet outwards. It was blur due to fast motion but at the end of it, it came into focus right in front of my face. I froze that moment and sat in awe there for minutes.

Although it's a conversion, JURASSIC PARK 3D has just been re-released with a free pass to see the new JURASSIC WORLD. If you take the movie money into account, the cost of this is below $10.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/jurassic...&skuId=6930123

Some 3D titles thata should bear mention:

THE BUBBLE Sort of an extended Twilight Zome meets Under the Dome 1960s cheese-fest but excellent pop-out effects

INFERNO Classic 1950s film with a beautuful restoration. Amazing color!

HOUSE OF WAX Nuff said (and it comes with the original 2D B&W TERROR OF THE WAX MUSEUM)

MR PEABODY & SHERMAN One of the best 3D animated movies I've seen, with wide-ranging effects, lots of extensions... AND a special, brand-new 10-minute 3D Rocky & Bullwinkle short is icing on the cake!

HERCULES (Dwayne Johnson version)

HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS

Coming next month: 3D RARITIES. a 147-minute extravaganza showcasing 3D from the 1920s and on. Everything from a Rocky Marcianao fight to Caspar the Friendly Ghost to atomic bomb tests. Probably some silent films too (yes, 3D has been around that long). Reportedly, these newly-restored old 3D selections put today's big budget movies to shame and might have the best 3D demo material.

Personally, I also liked the 3D on SIN CITY: DAME TO KILL FOR. It's the stylish movie-making look that makes this one appealing in 3D.

MY BLOODY VALENTINE A naked woman wandering around in 3D always deserves a mention!

KISS ME KATE If you like musicals (not my cup of cocoa) this one has spectacular 3D, with a beautiful transfer.

Honestly, there are so many more that one could be here all day listing them!
