Best 3d Bluray Movie so far????3d effects - Page 19

I must be in the minority. I couldn't give two shits about dvd copies or digital versions coming with my blu-rays. Actually I'd prefer a package with just one disc as it'd take up a little less space on the shelf that way.

I would assume US is the largest market for 3D and we dont have aces to many (good) titles thanks to region lock.

Any ideas on where to get a dirt cheap region B 3D bluray player ?

I see what movie you're after there...

Erotische Fantasien 2 [Blu-Ray 3D + 2D] (German Import)

Then the 3D player decodes and "builds" the right image from the left and sends out a 1920x2205 frame. For 2D the player just plays the left eye only.

3D players can do this, but not a 2D player. It has no idea what a frame-packed BluRay is. They were designed and built before there was a 3D standard.

If this is the case, it is 2D compatible because there is a 2D copy of the movie on the disc AND a 3D copy. Again, older players don't know what 3D is. Just like putting a BluRay in a DVD player...

My top 2 demo discs are: Sammy's Adventures and Avatar. I was also impressed with Toy Story 3 and Cars2.

I still like Monsters vs Aliens and Rio was really good and the movie was great

I'm still waiting for something in 3D live action with the quality of Avatar.
From what I've read, I am eagerly awaiting Transformers and Titanic. I've had enough of 3D cartoons. Was the last Transformers filmed in 3D?
I would rather have a film that was initially filmed in 3D and not a coversion. I knpw that Titanic was not but from what I have read, James Cameron showed a few minutes of Titanic in 3D in it was phenomenal.

The newest Transformers was shot in 3D, should be pretty decent
post #549 of 1877
The new "Pirates" movie was pretty impressive. Just watched "Captain America" the movie was excellent but the 3d was underwhelming. Just a few good scene "pops".

Try Steup-3D and Drive-Angry-3D

very impressive 3D

Transformers: Dark of the Moon was partially shot in 3D, and ~78 minutes was converted from 2D. The CGI was all converted to 3D. The converted parts are said to be indistinguishable from the S3D parts.

Drive Angry was my favorite live action 3D, which is weird cause it is a terrible movie. Of course I go for that kind of thing. Here's to hoping they make a Shoot-em-up 2 in 3D.

Like Crank 3?!?? Last I heard it was scrapped a while ago...

Or Pirana 2 3D. That should be good. Pirana wasn't bad for a conversion.

Just bought a Sony 3D BP. Some of the best 3d effects I've seen come in the streamed content in the player. They are only a couple minutes long each but very impressive.

Agreed. I have Sony 3D Blu ray HTIB and I too was impressed by the streaming 3D. I didn't expect to be but I was.

So, I have managed to finish watching Avatar 3D last night and I want to share with you my impressions. Regarding the overall 3D picture quality, I would have to say it is great and the best of all live action movies I have seen so far, although it has it's downsides as well. First of all, the 3d depth could have been better, cause there are numerous scenes where it looks like 2d, and I'm not referring to indoor scenes, but to the out in the open ones, like the floating mountains of pandora. These scenes are also not very blurry if you watch them without glasses.
Secondly, as a personal preference, I would have loved to see more pop-out scenes.
Now, to the good parts, what has blown me away and totally impressed me where the colors. The contrast and the colors are the best I have seen in a 3d movie, animated or non-animated. The level of detail is also great.
All in all, it is a great 3d treat, but not for the actual price ( around 100EUR/$). There are much cheaper 3D blu-rays on the market close to avatar, in terms of 3d depth and effects, although the colors and contrast are not as impressive.

I'm hearing a lot of great things about the 3D effects in Kung Fu Panda 2...anyone buy the Blu-ray (Best Buy exclusive)?...best use of 3D in any movie so far?
post #559 of 1877
Worst ever was tron. What a joke in 3D. Audio was good though.

Polar Express is actually really good for 3D effect. When they lose the cotter pin and fly off the tracks is wicked in 3D.

The lastest Harry Potters are hit or miss. The scene where they are riding the dragon is pretty powerful though.

The IMAX Ultimate Tahiti is good for depth and there are a few "animated" scenes that pop well.

Alice in Wonderland was really great for 3D.

I am pleasantly surprised at the 3D quality of SMURF's movie

also I watched Hubble-3D in IMAX theater and I have to say thats one of the best 3D IMAX I have seen.

Unfortunately I could get the same feel for the Hubble-3D-Bluray when watching on my 120" screen. I think in this case the humongous IMAX screen size draws you in very powerfully as you go on a joy ride across space-time-continuum

Sammy is available on Vudu in 3d for 21.99. It isn't in their 3D section, just do a search for 3D and scroll down until you see it.

Not all 3D has to have popout and to be honest some of us find popout straining on the eyes compared to depth behind the screen which is much easier to focus on.

"Legend of the Guardians 3d" is the most visually stunning movie to date and the story was good to watch. You felt like you were flying at times and I wanted that white owl as a pet it was soooo freaking gorgeous! Tangled 3d was very good also
post #564 of 1877
Tron was complete garbage in 3d...try "Legend of the Guardians" and then "Tangled"
post #565 of 1877
"RIO" was absolutely fantastic! Not too much 3d effects, but overall a mesmerizing experience. Great story, romance, action and an inspiring ending. What more can you ask for?

You want the IMAX experience - get up closer to the screen. With a good display, you should see it all.

I sit 7' from my 120" screen. That's the way you do it.

I used to think so until I saw Hubble 3d on a humongous IMAX screen with humongous 3D glasses....you need the screen to be way below your seat so it feels like you are literally in a space ship....no home set up can match that....although 120"+ screens approximate it well
