Hey, HEY!!! I'm a Wired reader!
Me too and I subscribe to its hardcopy magazines (almost two issues behind to read though)! So, we're idiots?

Saw Avatar, Jurassic Park, and Prometheus all 3D for $20 a piece at BB the other day. Is that a good price for those titles?

I thought Jurassic Park was a great conversion and definitely worth $20. Avatar, I could live with out, the 3D was nice but I really wasn't into the movie. Prometheus I've heard was good 3D but don't know for sure. I also seen Dredd 3D at BB for $14 the other day, I considered picking it up but have heard mixed reviews...

The first Jurassic Park's 2D to 3D conversion was that good? Hmm, maybe I will get that one on BR for 3D since I love the first movie. I saw its original 2D in theater, local 4:3 CRT TV OTA, and then HD-DVD. Movie was very nice. 3D format is the one I haven't seen yet. Who else here thinks the first Jurassic Park, in 3D, is worth getting? I always thought 2D to 3D conversions sucked. frown.gif

The Jurassic Park 3d conversion was well done, as was Titanic.
Perhaps a rental before you purchase for good?
post #1567 of 1877
You can watch the 3d trailer on youtube if you have the red/green glasses. From that preview I thought the conversion looked pretty good. I saw titanic 3d and it definitely looked good. I'd say all three of those movies is a good price, I might have to go down there and get some of them myself. I thought the 3d in Dredd was great, the movie wasn't bad, but could've benefited from a bit more substance, but lots of cool 3d effects.

I've read over and over again that post conversions sucked, but have been pleased with all the ones I own. They seem just as good as the native ones. I think a lot of it depends on how aggressive they go with the 3d

... and if they spend the time doing it right. Most post conversion if done right still don't look quite as good as the real deal. Every film that has been converted excluding Titanic I have seen I have been able to tell was converted. Often the majority of the film is fine but there are a few shoots that give it a way.

The majority of people who hate conversions though is it often fells tacked on even when done well (Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness) and it often is done poorly (Clash of the Titans, The Last Airbender).

The worst i have seen so far is the Running man, it was like the 3D conversion was done by a Commodore 64 !

Loved the Avengers in 3D

halfway through Avatar and that is great and of course Under the sea is amazing

got loads more to watch over the next few weeks

If your bluray player does not allow 3D L/R eye separation adjustment, then you are missing a lot of depth. I am always amazed at the depth I get from my Sony 590, but I have to adjust it to max separation. It makes most conversions enjoyable. You should make sure that infinity is set to about 2.5" or the separation width of your eyes. Any wider and you can suffer eyestrain.

Can Powerdvd make these adjustsments ?

The Running Man, the Schwarzenegger movie? There's a 3D conversion of that?

Why in the love of all that's holy would someone revisit that... "film" at all, much less actually spend money on a 3D conversion?

If any movie's in dire need of a remake, it's that one... as a proper adaptation of the book.
post #1578 of 1877
The Running Man is playing off the success of Hunger Games as a franchise. Just bringing it back as an upgraded 2D probably didn't make much $$ sense, so they did it in 3D to make it new again--my opinion.

This appears to be a German made release (both in German and English). The Germans like things differently than we do--is all I can say. My son lived in Germany for a year and went to see a lot of US movies. He said the Germans laughed and clapped in parts he thought were mundane, and kept quiet in parts that he thought they should have laughed and cheered about. It always puzzled him.

and then we would get people complaining about it being nothing more then money grabbing when a book is remade once but then ignoring books that have been adapted to film several times (wuthering heights comes to mind).

Just as an FYI for anyone that may be curious, I picked up Man of Steel yesterday. I only saw the 2D version in the theaters so I was curious how the 3D would work at home. I found the prologue on Krypton and Superman's final confrontation with Zod at the end to really be the only two sections of the film where the 3D was noticeable and had an effect on the experience. Other than those two sections, the 3D for most of the rest of the film was, given my tastes, largely negligible, rather pointless and quickly tuned out.

The MOVIE was recored in 2D - WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

Well firstly I will say I really like the 3d in Man of Steel (one of my favorite uses of 3d this year in fact). Though I am one of the people who does not want heavy 3d in every shoot of a film unless it suites. For example the minimal depth when Clarke and Louis are talking once Superman surrenders to me is how that scene should be done as heavy levels of depth would for me detract from the scene. I also imagine that many displays will struggle to display the film well as most displays seem to struggle with brightness in 3d, combine that with this films color pallet and style and I can see how some may not like it.

Secondly Titanic was shoot in 2d and look at it in 3d same goes with Avengers (in particular the final battle).

That was it. The only scenes that really reminded you that you were watching in 3d were the opening segments on Krypton and the ariel fight with Zod. I felt Into Darkness was a better conversion as far as recent films go.

I was just going to come in here to say Jurassic Park really impressed me. More than the Croods. Although the content I've seen is limited, I saw Jurassic 3D in both the theater and at home. And it blew me away both times. Amazing conversion they did.

post #1585 of 1877
Jurassic Park is an exceptional 3d conversion, as is Titanic. I have not seen the recent Wizard of Oz conversion, but appears to be getting positive reviews.
Remember that 3d can be subtle, like looking thru a window.....and/or have 'in your face' elements.
For the most part, the 'in your face' elements are usually limited, while the majority of a film is subtle, using the 3d as a means to show depth to each scene.

I just saw Pacific Rim in 3d.



Simply amazing.... Except for around five minutes where the transfer has been butchered.

what portion is that?

UPDATE i did a search and found the portion that was mentioned. Sure enough I remember thinking there was something off with that first fight scene, like my eyes were straining to see the action. and then it cleared up. This was watching on my PS3. The first time we viewed this title it was on my other Sony player with the 3d slider set to +2 (max), and oddly enough I don't remember thinking anything was off on that first viewing.

I can still converge the image but I got some slight eye strain which I have only ever had with broken 3d, which is what this is.

"Into Darkness" had a few bad reviews and I skipped it in the theater but picked up the 3D-Blueray recently. As conversions go this was not 1/2 bad, there were enough 3D looking scenes scattered throughout the entire feature I only rarely lifted my glasses to see what I was actually looking at. On a A-F scale I'd rate it a C+ or B-.

 

Christmas is coming up and Disney's "A Christmas Carol" 3D-Blueray might be something worth considering. It has one of the best in your face pop out "fill your living room with snowing" 3D effects at the opening that I've seen used for some time. It does not last very long but the sequence is note worthy.

 

My favorite 3D movie is "Yogi Bear", seemingly the entire feature renders with realistic depth and there are a handful of scenes with note worthy pop out effects. Fun for the entire family! While the story itself might rate only a "C" the 3D is A+ in my book.
