I just bought this at BB this morning and watched the beginning of my copy at their Magnolia store on a 90" Sharp 3DTV. It looked great and tonight I will watch on my 92" Mitsubishi for comparison. It also has over 6 hours of special features.

Well I just got the email that it shipped. Should be here Saturday, which means Monday, since it's going to work. mad.gif

This movie should be renamed, I was in the Titanic. Just WOW, how immerse you can get into a movie and feel like you are in it. This movie has bumped Avatar out of the top 3d spot for me.

Amazing work from one of the best James Cameron. This is a grand slam to win the world series.

Can't wait to watch it this weekend.

Hmmm, I remember not liking this movie at all back when it was in theaters. For 3D's sake I might give this another shot.
post #247 of 314
Another "wow" vote here. I'm sure there will be plenty of technical explanations why this isn't as good as native 3d, but damn this is astounding.

What disappoints me is that the 3D version is the open matte + pan&scan of the original 2D version.

Blown away as well. Got through about 1/3 of it tonight and the 3D really sucks you in the way Avatar and Hugo did. Impressive!!!

However, one thing viewers will notice is that while the aspect ratio of the 2D version is being presented in its original 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio, Cameron decided to present the 3D version in a more open 1.78:1 aspect ratio that fills the entire HDTV screen, making it more suitable for 3D viewing. The 1.78:1 image is not cropped, instead, the originally filmed top and bottom image information that was not used in the original theatrical and 2D DVD and Blu-ray disc versions has been "unmasked".

Are certain scenes P&Sed and if so which ones and why? Is there equipment/props in the 1.78 frame forcing a P&Sing or is it CGI shots that weren't 1.78 rendered. I thought JC shot with 1.85 framing in mind too. It seems he would not accept P&S and would have stuck with 2.35 if there were problems with opening to 1.85.

Some special effect shots that were CGI in 2.35:1 ratio are now cropped although most shots are open matte.

Just got the Titanic Movie this past week and watched it. It's on two disks. I was very impressed with the quality of the 3D given that it was a conversion. If this is what conversions are able to achieve, I say bring them on. There were some scenes with very little depth but where the depth really enhanced the story it was well done. In scenes where there was little depth the entire scene was pushed back showing a distant look, such as a long shot under water.

The technical quality of the 3D was very good with plenty of brightness for my projector and 1.0 gain screen. My non technical wife really enjoyed the 3D, said she preferred it to the 2D version.

In the original film there were at the time, state of the art animation sequences of people walking awkwardly on deck that were all CGI people images using inverse kinematic motion. None of this (not realistic) CGI was corrected for more natural motion and movement but just a sense of depth was added. Today these scenes would have been done using motion capture stages for a more fluid like movement but none of this has anything to do with 3D.

Both my wife and I were very impressed with the quality and are pleased to add this to our collection. It's a movie we will watch from time to time, a classic in our opinion.

I just watched the first hour and the indoor shots were stunning.

I bought Titanic 3D and Ghosts of the Abyss 3D at Walmart and Best Buy. I love the extras in Titanic 3D. Ghosts of the Abyss 3D I felt when the screen had the smaller screen shots took away from the 3D experience. The best 3D pop out effect was the mir subs manipulator arm popping out of the screen!
post #256 of 314
How did you like Ghosts of the Abyss 3D? Saw it yesterday at Best Buy and decided to pass and wait for a review.
post #257 of 314
we watched Titanic last night, and was really impressed with the 3D quality. Best 3D movie we have. Way better than Hugo, IMO (we don't have Avatar) cool.gif
post #258 of 314
The wife and myself also watched Titanic 3D Friday night. The wifey was very, very impressed. The 3D was very well done.

I liked it. Except for the screenshots that had small windows in the full TV screen.(I mean the TV you are watching this disc.) The smaller windows take away a lot from the 3D effect. The 2D DVD is better in my opinion. The 2D DVD does not have the small windows in the middle of the larger screenshot. The 3D film is 60 minutes. The 2D BD and DVD have both the 60 minute and 90 minute versions plus extra features. Buy it, if you are a Titanic film fan. The 3D in Ghosts of the Abyss is as good as the 3D in Titanic. On the Titanic deleted scenes, I only wish they had converted them to 3D. They are not in 3D.

I hope to get an authentic (Crossing my fingers) version of Avatar 3D Panasonic Promo Disc from an filmmaker who had an extra disc. I'll pass along if it is an authentic Promo or not an authentic disc.

Don, ralph Potts has an in depth review of Ghosts of the Abyss 3D Blu-Ray thread.

Yes, I was lucky to get an authentic Avatar 3D Promo disc. But, in my opinion the Titanic 3D Blu-Ray is better than Avatar 3D.

Wow, never thought in a million years that would be possible. I just got my copy of Titanic 3d and own Avatar. Really looking forward to seeing Titanic now.

Titanic 3D BD really surprised me by the quality. I thought that while Cameron was converting Titanic to 3D. He was also bringing a higher quality upgrade to the 3D in Avatar. A probable reason why it took so long to bring a low cost Avatar 3D BD to the public after the Panasonic Promotion?

This is a gorgeous movie and an excellent 3d conversion. But it is still just a conversion, you can tell easily if you pause it. To me, it shows even more that there is no substitute for filming with two cameras.

Are you aware that almost every S3D movie has 2D-3D converted parts?
