Agreed. I know everyone raves about the Potatoe Cod scene. But I found 5+ scenes that pop out equally or better. This movie is full of great 3D scenes. A sure "wow" inducer when we guests smile.gif

I got SA as well. It's got good 3D, but I'm not much into cartoons. But it's a good 3D show-off as well, but not so much as Under the sea, IMHO.

There is no doubt, from an artistic standpoint, Sammy's Adventure is a work of art. I am proud to DEMO it as the best example of what "real" 3D is all about. Everyone I've shown it too, friends and family, is simply blown away. I also have Under The Sea and while it looks really good, it still does not compare to Sammy's Adventure IMO. Like I've said before, at this point in time, nothing comes close. If more movies were released with this kind of 3D, I believe sales of 3D TV's would skyrocket.

In Sammy's adventures-does anyone have the time stamp for where the best pop-outs occur? I'm kind of in agreement with everyone about the movie. In does have great 3D effects and I do plan on using it as demo material but I have yet to get through the whole movie. I use Under the Sea and pause on the codfish and people are amazed to see it stretch and follow you all the way to the back of the room. Thus, a time stamp for pop-outs on SA would be appreciated!

Where are you guys buying Sammy's adventure from? There doesn't seem to be a US 3D version available anywhere.

My copy is loaned out or I would grab some time stamps for you. I remember the crab scene is around 15:15 I believe which is my favorite pop out scene in the film.

Availability? Hell, I haven't even heard of the film except in this thread. That's not really a good sign of quality. 3D effects aside, if the movie itself sucks (which it apparently does, or I would have heard about it elsewhere, and for other reasons than it's 3D implementation), then it's not worth my time.

Maybe we should give all the Sammy's talk its own thread and retitle this one "Best 3D Effects in Mainstream Films". You know, the ones that people will actually have seen.

When it comes to "demo" material at my house, it's much easier to show things that people are already familiar with.. Avatar or the Pixar films or some such.

Sorry if I ruffled feathers, I'm just getting a little sick of hearing about this film in this thread. Especially because I'm one of those people that doesn't like pop-out. Based on the descriptions, I would probably hate the 3D presentation in that film.

You would find plenty to appreciate from a depth perspective alone with Sammys. It blows Avatar out of the water.

You have not heard of it because the 3d version is only available as an import right now.

Ended up watching Flying Swords of Dragonsgate which had excellent 3d, especially for a live action title. It wont take the crown from Sammys Adventure, but a great 3d film in general.

Speaking of SA, has anyone here seen Sammys Adventure 2? If so, is the 3d on par with the first one?

Thanks Toe! I appreciate it. You do have to work to get a copy of this. I ordered mine from Hong Kong in December for a region A copy

Totally agree. It blows Avitar out of the water. Avitar can't compare to Sammy's.
post #970 of 1877
Yes the 3D is just as good in Sammy 2 as in the first one. The story is about the baby turtle being captured and placed in a huge aquarium with many interesting character fishes.

Thanks NSX. Any idea where the best place is to grab a copy? I got the original from a friend so I dont even know where to import this from. I am in the US so I need it region compatible with that obviously.

Thanks!

I would not say that it blows Avatar out of the water. It's all about what your expectation are. There are 3D films that I enjoy, like Sammy, that are more gimmicky. It tends to move your focus to the various moments where the 3D affect is its strongest. Then there are films like Avatar, Hugo, and Titanic where 3D is part of the overall experience...not THE experience. There are 3D films where you can lose yourself in the story and imagery. Total immersion. Then there are the ones where 3D affects are the story.

You have some very good points and I agree. As far as Avatar is concerned in particular though, the more 3d blus I have watched, the less impressed I am with Avatar in general. The 3d is pretty conservative IMO even for a "part of the overall experience" type of film like the ones you mention. Hugo for example has much more convincing 3d on my setup while still not drawing attention to itself by becoming THE experience like you mention. Even Underworld Awakening which is another that does not scream out "look at me" as far as the 3d goes is more convincing vs Avatar (I just watched UA a few days ago again and Avatar a few weeks ago for my most recent watching). When I first got and watched Avatar on 3d 2 years ago, I thought it was a standout, but as time has gone on and more 3d blus have come out AND as I have revisited Avatar it is just not as impressive to me now as it once was. I still think it is a good 3d disc, just not among the very best. Just my opinion though and others wont agree I am sure which is fine of course.

Having said all that, when I said SA blows Avatar out of the water I was talking strictly from a 3d perspective as far as pure depth and pop out goes and from that point of view, it is not even close. SA is in a completely different league for both depth and especially pop out vs Avatar. Avatar is overrated at this point IMO as far as the 3d experience goes. As far as 3d "demo" material goes, Avatar is not one of the discs I would turn to at this point in light of the other more impressive alternatives for both types of 3d experiences that you describe.
post #974 of 1877
I sold off SA, as I'm not much into primarily non-human animated features (I do like TinTin in 3D).

What's the best non-animated 3D Bluray apart from IMAX: Under the sea? Thanks.

From my experience and in my opinion, Hugo would be the best 3D non-animated movie so far (haven't seen Titanic, Step-Up Revolution, Dredd and Resident Evil:Retribution yet). The overall 3D experience is outstanding, the 3D is very well used, is part of the cinematography and really gives the viewer a much greater experience. For me, it is an example how the 3D should be implemented in all movies. Besides Hugo, there are some other live-action movies, which in my opinion have great 3D, but the technique isn't used as in Hugo, Avatar &co.: Step-Up 3D and Journey to the Mysterious Island. Also A very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas should have stunning 3D (potential demo-material from what I've read on the internet).
post #976 of 1877
I personally thought Hugo was overrated (especially in the 3D department). I think if it had been directed by some guy named Tim Smith and not Scorsese, people wouldn't like it as much.

YMMV though. It wasn't the worst I've seen, but wouldn't be my showcase piece.
post #977 of 1877
I liked Hugo until I saw Titanic 3D, and was awestruck. Frankly, I could not stand 2D to 3D conversions in the past, but this completely changed my mind. The scenes in the engine room and of the people walking around the deck of the ship are mind blowing on my 159" screen. I rewatched Avatar and agree, it's not that spectacular wow feeling I had when I first saw it, but when I turned on the Pure Motion engine on my Optoma HD3300, that did add more 3D punch. Pure Motion does an interpolation of frames to give you that HFR effect (ala the Hobbit). By reducing judder, it added more realism and I, again, had that wow feeling.

Thx for the suggestions everyone!

In my opinion and from a 3D standpoint, Prometheus is excellent 3D. I would take that over Hugo or Avitar. Although Hugo is better than Avitar. Actually, don't know what all the fuss about Avitar is, it's not very impressive compared to these other titles.

I OWN Prometheus 3D.

Are you going to make me watch it for the 4th time to find
out WHY everyone thinks Prometheus 3D is GOOD???????????

Can you provide a Chapter Reference?

Thanks for the report and this is great to hear. I really enjoyed the movie in 2d and loved the audio. Cant wait to check out the 3d now.
post #982 of 1877
It seems that the most common difference of opinion, when it comes to what constitutes "good" 3D, is those in favor of pop-out and those in favor of a more natural experience.
post #983 of 1877
Hugo was pretty good 3D but I was never able to watch it without falling asleep. Maybe the story livens up in the second half of the movie but I'll never know.
post #984 of 1877
i dont understand the hipster 3d vibe about pop..after watching over 75 3d br movies and shows on 3net i can say i have only seen a few pop outs, but almost all of them had depth..stop the "i hate 3d pop out cool guy crap" because i dont think that you guys have ever seen anything with pop out because it seems really hard to pull off and only happens maybe once or twice in a few( when i say few, i mean like 1 out 50) movies..

the best 3d pop out I've seen was SOS planet, it has a pop out shot of the earth that last 2 min. The pop out is so good it looks like the earth is spinning in my living room. The rest of the movie is awful but that earth scene makes it worth watching. I've seen my share of 3d movies, I own over 60 3d blurays and I can say pop out is a rare thing. I've notice a trend to tone down the 3d effect, they are shying away from 3d that reminds you hey you are watching a 3d movie. If I'm paying extra for 3d I want to see the 3d effect, I say bring on more pop out.

i still need to see sos..i agree about pop out.. i want to see pop out..everything has some depth, its time to see some pop out.. if you hate pop out, please tell me where the hell you are seeing all this pop out? like i said before, pop is really hard to come by...

Yeah, where did you get your copy from?
post #988 of 1877
It was posted here already but here you go http://www.dddhouse.com/v3/product_details.php?ProductID=12014
Obviously it will take a week or so because it's coming from Honk Kong but it is compatible with our players in the states. They also have Sammy's 2 but I believe you can get that from Amazon.

I have cox cable, SOS planet is available on their 3d on demand for free. I'm not sure if its on bluray or not. I would check to see if your cable/sat provider has it in their 3d on demand.
