1. sammys adventure part 1 & 2.
2. Madagascar 3
3. Spy kids game over.

These are not the best movies, but the 3d IMO is pretty good if you're looking for pop out.


Thanks for the suggestions. I've seen Sammys Adventure 1. And it certainly had some cool pop in it. My son ate that one up. smile.gif I'm gonna pick up spy kids for him because he likes those movies anyways, and will look into Madagascar 3. Thanks !

there are multiple pop out moments in spy kids. make sure its the right spy kids movie. its the one when they go into a video game world.

edit: BTW, if you only want to see pop out, check out 1tompo1 videos on youtube. make sure to put set the 3d option to side by side. he has stuff popping out really far from the screen. heres an example:

When you can no longer physically focus on something, I'd say the pop-out has gone just a little overboard.

For those who can get Netflix in 3D, Sammy's Adventure is available. I was able to watch it (although I own it on VuDu) as well as Flying Swords of Dragon Gate

How can you tell it's 3D? (Like I've asked a few times already)

Seriously.. does it SAY that it's 3D, or does it pop up an option when you try to play it, or what? Everybody seems to go on and on about how they've watched it, but no one's yet said HOW.

Oh man... I want to see dragons gate... stupid comcast!

3D content will be marked as such and when you press play a prompt comes up saying it's 3D and if you want to watch it that way.

yes, exactly. I put on Immortals this morn and watched the beginning in 3D, didnt have time to watch it though so will watch it tonight. I have watched a few good titles, a couple of IMAX films, a couple of movies like Flying Swords and Shark Night.

This must vary by provider. My device lists many "Super HD" movies and states 3d is available for a couple titles. When I click the play the titles in which 3d is available, it simply plays in 2d and does not prompt me whether I want to watch in 3d.

Yeah, any title that has a 3D badge, when I press play, the prompt comes up asking if you want to view in 3D or 2D. What device are you using?

My provider has a special 3D section, I believe. I've never tried it, because I'm too cheap eek.gif

I found out (on the last day) for the Olympics they had 3D coverage. It was the type where it was two side-by-side pictures. I had to push the 3D button on my TV and select that mode. Then it worked. I don't know if renting a 3D movie would be similar or not confused.gif

Just watched the potato cod scene... I'm not typically a big fan of pop out but that one blew me away. (Perhaps because it's a very slow motion scene?) Never seen anything that has that much pop out and so little artifacting. On an optoma 8300... Or is that 8600? 106' screen.

BTW, I wanna toss out a question here, if someone could answer or direct me where to go that'be awesome... With my optoma, I've been noticing this LCD like shimmer or shine on dark 3d scenes. It cam be overbearing at times. Anybody know what that's about? If I ever saw this same thing on my Samsung plasma, it was never obnoxious enough to be note worthy

I am using the netflix app on my Samsung smart tv. This device and my TIVO Premier show "Super HD" titles. For some reason my PS3 and 2 3d Blu-ray players don't show any titles as "Super HD". I am not sure if the lack of 3d on netflix is limitations of the devices I am using or limitations with my internet provider (Charter).

I attribute this largely to:

No edge violation - HUGE
Slow motion - makes it easy to stay converged and see the depth
High contrast - makes it easier to determine depth queues

I watched several parts of Sammy's 3D through Netflix and was not impressed. I saw more pop out in one of the demo videos that come with my Sony HX950.
post #1096 of 1877
I am surprised when people say Sammy had underwhelming pop out. Makes me think something in the chain was off. I have seen about 40 3d movies on my screen and Sammy is the benchmark IMO.

Freeze frame the potato cod scene is a lot of fun, gives your eyes time to completely adjust to its depth, very cool, the best scene I've ever seen in 3D re: pop out.

+1. Watched it for the first time last week and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'm definitely in the camp that at least some pop-out in 3D movies is a must. I have zero interest in very subtle 3D. For my front projection setup (an Epson 6010) the glasses darken the image quite a bit so if there isn't any noteworthy 3D (e.g., popouts) I'd rather watch the 2D version because there is more punch to the image in 2D vs. 3D on my setup although 3D looks good as well.

Fortunately, my Sony projector can be and is calibrated so that the 3D and 2D will display at the same brightness and color intensity on most movies. But I agree that I want both positive and negative parallax or a full range of 3D depth as that entertains me. After all, being entertained in my home theater is what its all about. I'm not so concerned about what reviewers and other "experts" claim.

Very interesting because I believe my Epson 6010 is rated as a light canon compared to any Sony projector, never heard of anyone saying they could get the same brightness in 3D and 2D on consumer projectors. If it does it for you more power to you.

I know I am in the extreme minority on this one, but Avatar doesn't really do much for me in the 3d department. I know it's not known for its popout, but there is something about the way it looks that sort of bothers me, especially in the non-CGI scenes. There are definitely some beautiful moments but I would rate this as average. Even though I am no big fan of the film, Cameron's 3d conversion of TITANIC would probably be my 3d demo disc which I never would have guessed happening.

There are some 2.35:1 aspect ratios with great 3d (the two FINAL DESTINATION discs, RE: AFTERLIFE) but the 2.35:1 issue with 3d on my screen (120") always keeps it from being absolute-must-see-demo quality. Something about 2.35:1 on a 16:9 screen in 3d takes me out of the moment.

PS - i also thought the AVENGERS 3d conversion was pretty top-notch.

Yeah, that's one's pretty good. I liked Men in Black 3 as well. You can tell they shot it with 3D in mind, even though they were shooting in 2D. I still prefer native, but the conversions are getting up there.

Anyone have any comments on Top Gun 3D?
post #1106 of 1877
Any comments on Harold and kumar 3d Christmas? I watched it in 2d but there was many dilebrate attempts to show 3d. I will have to hire the 3d version and see how much pop it has

There are lots of obvious gimmicky CGI pop-outs that work well. The stop motion sequence looks good too. However, the depth in most of the native footage is very flat and unremarkable. Lots of people seem to like it, but overall, the 3D was a big disappointment for me.

The majority of the conversion looks nice, but it is a very bland 3D experience due to the 2D story-boarding and editing. I'd recommend it for Top Gun fans, as long as the color grading changes don't bother you. Glad I bought it.

The Sony is especially bright in full mode. Too bright for my taste. So, when my wife and I came to that consensus, I got the idea that I could calibrate the 90ES so that it's 2D display was comfortably bright in the economical lower wattage mode. Then, I programmed the setup so that when it sensed the 3D content it will switch the projector to full wattage and higher contrast and brightness. Now when the projector sees 2D and our glasses are off, it has the same brightness as when it sees 3D with glasses on. The glasses also have a dark filter required too so a color balance for 3D has to be calibrated in the custom mode I set up for 3D.

Top Gun- While I wouldn't say this is the best 3D movie it was an enjoyable watch, mainly due to the story that was only enhanced buy the addition of 3D, especially in the flight scenes and the scenes aboard the carrier in the flight control room. The love story and drama scenes, not so much. I especially liked the F14 flight formations where the jets lined up right in the middle of my room and on into the space behind the screen. I have Top Gun in HD DVD and plan to review that disk later this week to compare the image detail that does appear to be lacking in the BD3D version. Been a couple years since I viewed it so I won't comment further.

Harold and Kumar 3d Christmas
This had some really good 3D moments but the big problem with this movie is it is a seasonal story. In my opinion, that puts it at a disadvantage. There are many 3D movies that suffer the seasonal problem.

Yup, I have the same 2D/3D brightness setup on my Optoma HD3300, so 2D (standard setting) and 3D (bright setting) appear the same brightness. Only big difference is the 3D sometimes has blown-out contrast that seems to be inherent in the 3D process, ala Top Gun 3D for example and a few scenes in Titanic 3D as well. I have not had that problem with Avatar though-it is near perfect contrast in 3D and 2D. I should add that I have a High Power screen and the gain (although I ceiling mounted the projector) does help maintain a perfect brightness level.
