Which movie?

"History of the world in two hours" - Is this any good? Looks quite interesting.
post #933 of 1877
It's OK- the title is a cheat as it's closer to 90 minutes, some good depth.
post #934 of 1877
I'm guessing that it was made for TV with commercials, for 2 hours. Thanks!

Watched Ice Age 4 last night ..Pretty good ,also enjoyed Madagascar 3 and Tangled ,,yep i have kids smile.gif
Up in the "3D in home ,do you care " thread a lot of people rave about polar Express and its 3D effects..Is it worth a buy?

Resident Evil Retribution is the best I have seen to date.

It's sooooooo very good.

I plan on watching it tonight but I am SURPRISED you said that.

I paid to see it in 3D in the Movie Theater and I was DISAPPOINTED
with the 3D Quality in the theater.

My Fingers are crossed.

Resident Evil Afterlife is the best 3D I have seen and expected the
same from Resident Evil Retribution.

I will WATCH it tonight and report back.

I just finished watching Resident Evil Retribution - It was the same as in
the THEATER and STILL NOT as GOOD as Resident Evil Afterlife.

For those that have seen Sammy's Adventures...I've watched this movie on 2 different sets. One was my Samsung 55UND8000 and now I own a Panasonic 60GT50. Same seating distance, which is about 10ft. On the Sammy, the scene with the snake, it literally was about 2ft in front of my face. On the Panny, it comes out the screen but not as prominent as my old Sammy. So should I chalk this up as different tech between the Samsung and Panasonic (LED/Plasma)? I thought it would actually be better since I went 5" larger on my new set. Other than a little less "pop-out", I think the Panasonic displays 3D content much better IMHO.

Impressing depth, objects are very well delimited from the background. I've also watched Lion King in the past, but that't not even close to this one in terms of 3D. Makes the movie even greater!

We watched Nemo 3D last night -I last watched it on DVD several years ago. I must say the Blu-Ray version is beautiful, but I wasn't overwhelmed by the 3D. I feel like they could have done much more with it, and I'm not sure it added much over a 2D Blu-Ray version. We watched Hugo the night before and the depth 3D added to that film was incredible.
post #942 of 1877
I think the problem is that it boils down to the "conversion" syndrome. Finding Nemo wasn't made with 3D in mind, so none of the shots were framed or set up to compliment 3D in any way. That's why I haven't been in a hurry to get the older Pixar films in 3D since I already own them. I'm getting Nemo just because this is the first time it's been released on Blu-ray.

I did sit down and watch the two 3D Resident Evil movies. The 3D in Afterlife was more blatant, but both had a lot of "throwing things at the camera". They also forgot to add a decent movie to the mix, both times. I'm rather amazed that these things are still being made.

you know i'm having some weird issues with this movie too..i just got my copy in the mail that i ordered from hong kong..one site has over twenty five pages of people ranting and raving about how this movie will take place outside of your tv set. many say this is the best movie for 3d pop out ever and i just dont see it. dont get me wrong it has some really nice 3d effects and has better 3d than most of the other films that ive seen that have good depth but no pop out. this one has a little of both but i think the under the sea has more pop out with the cod fish clip.

about your tv question..some sets have better 3d than others. on my sony hx950 i found a option in the settings that really helps for 3d pop. i have it off for reg movies but for 3d i turn on the reality creation setting and it really helps with pop.

i have a question to anyone that has sammys adv 3d. does your disc play the 3d and 2d version. all my other 3d br's have a differnt disc for the 3d version. on my disc it says its 1080p so i dont know why i dont see all this crazy pop out that people are talking about all over the net..
post #945 of 1877
Finding Nemo may or may not be great but I can't discuss it much less watch it. I saw it with a blind date when it came out. The horror, the horror.

Yea that's what I figured...Different tech. I know my Panny is capable of extreme pop-outs because I've watch the extreme 3D videos on Youtube and they are awesome! I also watched that Jet-Li movie people keep talking about Flying Swords at the Gates or whatever and I still am not seeing all the crazy pop-out effects people are raving about. I see it slightly but it's not exaggerated as some say....at least not to me, on my set.


EDIT* I watched Sammy's Adventures 2 3D and to me, it seems like they scaled back some of the excessive pop-out from the first movie. It was still a very enjoyable 3D experience...recommended cool.gif

Thx for all those who recommended IMAX: Under the sea. It is simply awesome. This whole Bluray should be a Demo for any TV.

yes, like i said before everyone talks about sammys so i ordered the movie from over seas because thats the only way to get the region a blue ray of the movie and i thought that it had less pop than the under the sea doc..maybe something is wrong with my eyes or tv but one site had over twenty five pages of write ups about how great the pop out was on sammys 3d adv..i have watched over 75 br movies and docs and i think under the sea is the best..3d still has a long way to go because it seems like only a few movies can really pull off depth and pop both..imax docs is def the way to go if you want to turn on a friend to real 3d because it seems like most major films cant do 3d well..hopefully in the next few years we will see this change because 3d is great..

Under The Sea used to be my 3D demo material, until I got Sammy's Adventure.
post #952 of 1877
I'm sure it has great pop outs but it is just a cartoon. I would like to check it out if it was available on Amazon, etc.

What does that have to do with anything? It may be just a cartoon, (the correct term would be animation), but it's the best example of 3D that I've seen. And I've seen most of them.

Anyway, Vudu has the 3D version of Sammy that you can buy or rent. Make sure you choose the HDX 3D version. http://www.vudu.com/movies/#!content/286291/A-Turtles-Tale-Sammys-Adventure-3D
post #954 of 1877
I would have to say Sammy's Adventure is the best overall so far as well. Tons of pop outs and great depth throughout.

Madagascar 3 is right up there as well I thought.

Monsters vs Aliens is still a personal favorite with what might be my favorite pop out scene yet with the paddle ball in the beginning. Awesome depth throughout as well.

Under the Sea is a must own as well and one of the best yet.

The difference is that I don't normally watch cartoons. Isn't it also easier to make a drawing into 3D than it is to do it with real people and objects? I don't use vudu, just Netflix and Amazon Prime, but I'm sure that someday it will be made available in this country since it's the best 3D ever. Don't know what the hold up is.
post #956 of 1877
if sammys is the best 3d ever than 3d still has a long way to go. imo i like most of the imax docs better than sammys....
post #957 of 1877
I wonder if Sammy was in 2D only would adults want to watch it or is it aimed at kids.

I think the movie itself is geared for an extremely young audience. Probably intended for an audience that the glasses won't fit. I attempted to watch the movie and couldn't stomach the thing. It is the most childish of any animated movies out there. In this case, I think the inference using the term "cartoon" is on point. My friends would harass me for the rest of my life if I pulled this movie out to showcase 3D.

I dont really agree with that. It is geared toward a younger audience, but only in part. The central themes of the movie are friendship and love which are very mature themes obviously and things that can be appreciated by all ages. The movie also explores elements of persistence, anger, grief, disappointment and so forth. SA has plenty of maturity IMO for adults to find interest in. I have watched it 3 times! eek.gifwink.gif I would have absolutely NO problem and have had NO problem pulling this out for demo material for family and friends.


As far as demo material goes, it is just that. The fact is MOST who have seen SA consider it one of the best if not the best example of 3d yet and going in from that perspective it would be hard not to be impressed with it. As long as your "friends" are open minded enough not to judge and dismiss it immediately due to being animated, I dont see why pulling this out for demo purposes would be an issue. Once they see that crab come out of the screen and you pause so they can literally (at least in my room/setup) put their finger right up through the claws or that snake comes half way into the room and sticks his tongue out, I guarantee they will be impressed if they have any interest in 3d in the first place. Hell, I just showed these exact scenes to my Dad who is almost 70 and his wife who is over that and they begged me to loan them the disc so they could "demo" these scenes for friends and family. wink.gif

The movie is not Pixar quality storytelling, but I personally enjoyed the actual movie when I watched it for the first time which was in 2d ironically. I found a lot to like about it which I mentioned above. I also enjoyed it from a musical perspective as they picked some great tracks that supported the film very well IMO. Not to mention if you enjoy good PQ, the 2d PQ is excellent and has lots of great WOW factor with incredible clarity and colors that POP off the screen. It is not a must own for 2d or anything, but I would consider it a very enjoyable rental for 2d purposes alone. Just my opinion though and movies are obviously very subjective. There was certainly more than a kids movie here from my perspective though even though it was geared that way in part.

That is what makes SA SO great as far as the 3d goes though. Not ONLY does it contain arguably the best pop out moments on blu ray 3d, but the depth (which is what 3d mostly relies on) is as good as anything I have seen and is CONSTANT........combine these 2 and this is why so many consider it THE demo 3d disc. Are you saying that the depth is not up there with the best titles you have seen as well? If you claim depth is not among the best, I question if your 3d equipment is working properly?

Also, the reason I brought up the 2 scenes that I did is that normal people who want to be "WOWED" by 3d want to see things come out of the screen from my experience. This is why the two scenes I mentioned are popular, or the infamous Potato Cod scene from Under the Sea or the paddle ball scene from M v A, etc........Personally I get much more excited about 3d that has excellent and consistent depth throughout since the VAST majority of 3d relies on this, not pop out. Of course when you can have both, like in SA you get the best of both worlds and again why SA is considered THE 3d demo disc by most who have seen it.

So now we are comparing Sesame Street to SA? tongue.gif Sesame Street is a great example of what SA is NOT. Again, SA is partly geared toward a younger audience no argument there, BUT there is plenty to keep adults interested as far as all the themes I mentioned above. We are not talking about learning to count to 10 here and if that is as deep as you see SA, I question if you have even watched it and if so how good your comprehension level of the material was (were you high at the time?). tongue.gif

As far as Step Up Goes..........my friends would laugh me out of the ****ing room with that disc WAY before SA. That type of material is cringe worthy as far as the cheese that is on display in general and I actually feel a bit dumber after watching something like that IF I end up sitting through the whole thing. Just my opinion though and this is very subjective obviously. I am sure people who are into dance or that kind of music would find much more redeeming qualities in a disc like that.


To keep this thread on topic, I interpret it as what movie has the best 3d effects so far and most would agree (as far as those who have seen it) that SA is the best or damn close to it. I really dont know how anyone could claim it is not at least near the top considering the excellent and consistent depth throughout and again, arguably the best pop out moments on blu ray 3d. If one does not let the subject matter cloud judgment like the poster in question seems to be doing (assuming the subject matter is of little interest to that poster which is the case here), I dont know how you could argue that from a pure 3d perspective that SA is not either at the top or right near it. Again this is also assuming your equipment is working right.




Off to watch either Flying Swords of Dragons Gate, Brave or Prometheus in 3d.................
