Best 3d Bluray Movie so far????3d effects - Page 13

post #361 of 1877
I couldn't stand being region locked for Blu-ray 3D any longer and picked up a Region B Sony BDP-S780 earlier this week. First movie I watched on it was the French release of Dark Country 3D and it is a keeper ---- really taking advantage of 3D throughout.

This is it here:
http://www.amazon.fr/Dark-Country-Bl.../dp/B004K46QWI

Plot-wise, you can see the end coming from a mile away - but the film was fun - performances good - and it comes across as a sort of David Lynch-lite neo-noir episode of the Twilight Zone (with over the top Sin-City-esque effects and staging). French subs are forced on the English audio track though.

Has anyone here seen Ocean Wonderland? I think it's a IMAX movie. I heard the title has THE best pop out scene ever. Is the movie good in other aspects too?
post #363 of 1877
Tangled is another really good movie that bears repeat viewings. The lantern scene toward the end is really amazing for pop out. My wife and kids were reaching out trying to touch them.

The title can be deceptive. It is easy to buy a find an available copy of the Blu-ray, but it might not be in 3D. The original IMAX title was "Hubble 3D", so it gets carried over to all the versions of the disc.

I rented the Netlix Blu-ray, and it was not in 3D, but the non-3D version was so intriguing, I hunted the a Blu-ray versions that actually were in 3D and found that Best Buy had an exclusive version for $34.95.

It is not a long feature, but it is stunning, and highly reccomended, even for my jaded eyes, and if you like this sort of thing. I do.

Yes Hubble 3D (actually in 3D) is a Best Buy Exclusive. I caught it on sale for $24.95 and it was worth it.

I wouldn't have paid $35 for a 40 min. movie, but I'm sure anytime best buy has a sale the price will be reduced by $10 so keep an eye out it is worth a watch

Does anyone posting on this thread have a Sony 3DTV? I have a Bravia HX55800, and I'm just not getting the "pop" that many posters appear to be seeing.

As a specific example, I recently purchased Tangled. The PQ is fantastic, and the depth in the movie looks really good, but I am not really seeing much pop.

The lantern scene is one that has been mentioned. But in my personal experience the lanterns don't come out more than a few inches out of the screen. And this is the only scene in the movie where I seem to be getting some crosstalk.

Same thing with Resident Evil and AIW - just not seeing much pop...

I'm not sure if it's Sonys in general, my specific TV, or my settings. I've tried to tweak the settings quite a bit to reduce crosstalk (not that it was much of an issue in Tangled).

What TVs do people own who are seeing all these pop out effects?

Thanks!
John

I have the Toshiba 55WX800 and I think the 3D is excellent. I have the three blu rays you mentioned and I experienced the "pop" out scenes in all of them. The lantern scene in Tangled was awesome. But I do think the people see and "process" 3D images differently.
post #368 of 1877
I have a projector with a 120" screen. Sharks 3D has some good pop-out too. I would head to the nearest bestbuy and see if it is just your TV. Some people sadly cannot get the 3D effect. It could just be your TV though. Sounds like Sony tv's aren't the best for 3D. Their projectors don't fare well in 3D either. Funny since they are pushing 3D with the PS3 which I am very happy about.

Just to answer the thread question, Megamind has been a favorite of a lot of my guests. Many liked it better than Avatar. I have just about every 3d bluray and I'd definitely rank Megamind close to the top along with Guardian Owls, How to Train Your Dragon and Despicable Me.

I agree, but also this is what sucks about 3d now. All the best 3d movies are kids animated movies. I really want more live action pg13 and higher rated movies.
post #371 of 1877
The suckier thing is the two best 3D movies, imo, How to Train you Dragon and Shrek 2 are both exclusive to Samsung, and even worse, are exclusive of each other. I put Dragon near the top of my list of favorite movies animated or not. I did really enjoy watching Drive Angry 3D, as bad of a movie as it is. I really hope they release some of the old live action 3D movies like Spacehunter and Lost in Space.
post #372 of 1877
I'm in the middle of drive angry right now. The movie is pretty bad but I enjoy it too. Pretty good 3d and nicholas cage is good in it. Having him in the movie prepared me mentally for what kind of movie to expect. I knew from jump that I proly should hang my brain at the door and expect a mindless movie wit cool effects and its delivered for the most part..

Just watched Avatar 3D. Wow, that is really amazing.

Well I got my copy of Yogi Bear 3D today and the 3D in it was very good. Very little (if any) noticeable crosstalk. And surprisingly I DID see some great pop out moments - like the telescope and the flying nachos scenes.

Definitely the best 3D pop effects I've seen so far on my Sony 3DTV.

Of course, that just confuses me more, since I didn't think the pop outs were very impressive in Tangled or Resident Evil on my TV. Still wondering if there is something wrong with my TV. When I went to Future Shop the Sony demo was busted so I couldn't see it. So then I went to Best Buy and watched the Sony demo there for about 20 min but left after not finding one sales person to help me (is it any reason 3DTV sales have lagged expectations???).
post #375 of 1877
any1 knows a 3d movie with the best pop outs? so far i only think imax under the sea is the best. saw green hornet on 3d last night and it was horrible.. any other suggestions for a good 3d experience?

You are right, there isn't that much pop in those. For the Tangled lanterns, bigger is better (I have Optoma HD66 projector)

I've got all of the releases mentioned in the thread. Under The Sea is super (Deep Sea too) - and the Yogi "floating Nacho" scene is also great. But for overall pop outs, these two are the best throughout and will give your system a workout:

1) IMAX: Legends Of Flight:
http://www.amazon.com/Legends-of-Fli...uct/B004QDW2IK

2) Sammy's Adventures - but there isn't a USA release.
There are numerous Region B releases, but here is the Region A release from Hong Kong that will play on US players:

to achieve the full "pop out" effect from your 3D TV you must maximize the perceived area of your screen. When the edge of the screen approaches the periphery of your vision you will have a more immersive experience. ('my goal was not to poke you in the eye[with 3D], but to draw you in', John Cameron). Sit 1 1/2 times your screen size away from the TV, or get a bigger TV or a projector if you don't want to pull up your La-Z-Boy right up and hog the movie...
post #378 of 1877
Ugg, 1.5 screen width is way too far away. I sit 7' from my 120" screen. I like the Imax experience. Some prefer to sit in the second row 4 feet back, but that is still closer than 1.5 screen widths.

Excellent 3D, one of the best and a darn good film too.

Question about My Bloody Valentine: It came with its own 3d glasses. Do I have to use these or the samsung ones that are specific for my D7000? Do you even need a 3d TV to watch this movie? It doesn't look great with the provided red/blue glasses but the samsung ones do nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I think you purchased the wrong version, there was a 3D version with the blue/green 3D glasses included, which was the old-fashioned 3D and then there was released a 3D version in "Blu-ray 3D." On the top of the front cover, it should say "Blu-ray 3D" as well as on the disc label.
post #384 of 1877
Yes, you have to buy carefully.
post #385 of 1877
Ii just purchased Priest 3D will let everyone know after I watch how good it is or isn't...later.
post #386 of 1877
I was half tempted by Santum 3D. There are getting to be a number of 3D movies that are tempting, but not 35 bucks tempting. It will be nice when there is a way to rent them.

I bought it blind and it was a waste of money. Pretty bad, storyline wise and 3D wise. Pass on it.

I am tired of region locked as well...the above link doenst work...could you point me to a new link please?
