To me the potato cod scene of Under the Sea on freeze frame trumps EVERYTHING! biggrin.gif

YMMV though. It wasn't the worst I've seen, but wouldn't be my showcase piece.

+1!

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.

Please provide times of the other scenes you think have pop out equal or better than the potato cod scene! Same request for best pop out scenes in Sammy Adventures for whoever knows the times.

Any other decent scenery 3D Blurays like the Grand Canyon one, guess not...
I have a safari one haven't watched it, probably not good.

Already running out of content except cartoons, that's the issue with 3D...

I apologise as this one IS NOT offered in 3D and simply shows the poor decision makers inside ANY Sony department. However, I was able to view the trailer for the new Total Recall with Colin Farrell. At the time I had my Bravia upscaling and simulating 3D for the trailer (this was not in 3D even in the theaters). The preview looked COMPLETLY FREAKN AWEOME with all the depth shots as well as combining in-yur-face elements.

I will be checking the full movie out soon but this one SHOULD have been in 3D, and thats just bein wowwed from a trailer. Iv seen the film in its 2D native format and cant wait!!!

Im more happy to see the newer 3D movies being more focused at the thrill of a car coming out of the screen and landing in my lap than the initail 'depth' that was the focus... IE the dissapointing 3D of TRON. I can look outta window any day to see depth of field, I cant however have a building collapse on me while feeling I need to actually avoid the falling 3D debree and be okay.

You could get some kids to throw balls, spears and poke swords at your face when looking outta that window biggrin.gif

not sure about the exact times because i havent watched sammy in awhile. but i think the 14-15 minute mark has a lot of pop out and a crab that pops out really far , there is also i scene i think around the 40-45 minute mark that shows a snake popping out as well. overall the entire movie was out of my screen, but those 2 scenes the pop out was really extreme.

i also saw another ocean documentary, not sure of the title, but it was something like paradise in thailand. anyways there were a few scenes that had good pop out too. at times it looked like my room was filled with fish.

This is more what I meant... not just getting a car thrwon at my face. But objects pouring into the room versus Trons ability to make me feel like I could walk inot the TV. Nice and invites me into the film, but still I like the gimmick of the 70's and 80's 3D content like Amytville 3D used.

I'm relatively new to the 3d world, but I've watched a few movies now and to me Hugo and Under the Sea are the best, with the best "pop out" effects occurring in Under the Sea as mentioned above. I was actually expecting more from Avatar to be honest, I felt if I didn't hear so much rave about it, I would've liked it better both from a visual standpoint and an overall movie standpoint. I almost picked up Journey 2 as well, just for the 3d effects, but held off since I heard the movie itself wasn't so great. Any advice as to which Pixar/Disney flicks are the best to watch in 3d? (Yes, I'm sure it's been listed a million times on here but I've been up since 4 and I don't feel like digging smile.gif )

Any of the newer Pixar films starting with Up. All of the newer ones were made with 3D in mind from the start.

Check out the Dreamworks titles in 3d as well as I find them more impressive in general vs the Disney/Pixar 3d films. Madagascar 3, HTTYD, M v A, etc......

Probably already said in the older pages but I purchased and watched Sanctum last night in 3d. Thought it was done pretty good. My 3d collection consists of Sanctum, Avengers, MIB3, TinTin, Brave, Titanic, Dredd, Prometheus, and Avatar. The two best being of course Avatar and surprisingly Sanctum. Then again Cameron had a hand in it, so he probably went the extra mile to make it POP.

What's the cheapest price to get a 3D region A compatible copy of Sammy's Adventure? I saw that the HK import is about $35. Was hoping to find it for $25 shipped

I do not remember the price but you can buy it from VuDu - Online - cheaper than anywhere else.

I would put Avitar in last place against the other movies you listed. And of course, nothing compares to Sammy's Adventure.

It is $6.99 to Rent.

Now I can watch it as much as I need.

I'll soon see what all this hype is about with Sammy's Adventures. Just picked up a new copy on eBay for $16 shipping included. biggrin.gif

I have not Watched 100% of my VuDu Sammy Purchase but I was blown away after 15 minutes.

I will watch it all this weekend.

I worry about buying a Blu-Ray DVD - They are NOT normally for the U.S. Region.

That is why I BOUGHT the VuDu Download.

No Clue on Region Free Players.

I do not fool around with that stuff - too many headaches

I got Sammy's Adventure off of VuDu the other night, I think all the hype killed it for me, because while the 3D was very good, I was expecting much more (Similarly to what happened when I watched Avatar). I still think my favorite 3D so far is Under the Sea IMAX and Hugo. I'm gonna check out a few more over the next few days on HBO on Demand: Journey 2, Finding Nemo, and Kung Fu Panda.

I agree with this statement! I did the same thing a few months ago when I discovered VUDU and had the same reaction...

The ebay copy I bought was not region 1, I wound up with an $18.00 coaster. Got a region 1 from Hong Kong. I'm suprised by some people being underwhelmed by the 3d aspect. By far the best popout of any flick I have watched. (108" screen.)

MAYBE you are watching it on a TINY screen.

Try 13 Feet

Modded region-free BD standalones are few and far between, and expensive. Momitsu is one, IIRC. Off the shelf standalones that can be made region-free for Blu-Ray are near non-existent.

Well, if you have a Blu-ray burner in your computer, you could rip the disc to hard drive as an ISO image. The trial of the Blu-Ray decrypter AnyDVDHD will do. That will remove the region coding. Then burn the ISO to a double-layer BD50 blank with IMGBurn. I know of no other reliable method of backing up a 3D Blu-Ray. If you try it, it's important you rip as ISO image and burn to a BD50. Use IMGBurn only.

Good luck.

Thanks to all for the VuDu option but I prefer to get the highest quality video and audio on physical media. Just out of curiousity, what type of audio is included when buying from VuDu?

What import did you buy? The UK? I'm assuming the UK release is region locked since someone posted they got an $18 coaster. That pretty much only leaves the HK import as region A as far as I know. I have a region free player, just not a 3D region free player mad.gif

VuDu is 1080p Video and DD 5.1.
