Blockbuster is doing twice as good this month as last month. I got my second disk for February yesterday! It was the Dinosaurs of Patagonia 3D.
Good story but lots of divergence in the close ups as well as geometry distortion. Seems the director didn't understand the IMAX 3D minimum shooting distance for that camera. This is where using an over/under rig pays off but their game, I recognize, was to do an IMAX film, so therefore, they should have shot all scenes within the limit ranges of that camera.
The interesting thing about IMAX and IMAX 3D productions is they are billed as an IMAX icon. Unfortunately using the IMAX technology limits the director to telling the story the way the IMAX dictates. Most movies today, do not bill a movie by the brand of camera being used. IMAX is the exception. The last time in history Hollywood did this was during the early days of Panavision®, Cinemascope®, and Technicolor®
The medium long shots were pretty good as expected for a 65mm IA camera. The extreme long shots were flat 2D. Many of the bright shots were also a bit washed out. The production could have used a good colorist to fix the gamma in some of the scenes.
Bottom line, the story was good, but the 3D quality suffered in many of the scenes while other scenes were excellent.
