Immortals 3D???

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
I never saw this in the theatre, but I see that it is coming out on bluray 3d this Tuesday... any word on the 3d? I have a $25 best buy card that is burning a hole in my pocket- I would like to know if Immortal 3d is worth owning... thanks...

Same here

It's one of the better conversions out there. I heard Tarsem spent a very long time in post making sure the 3D was done properly.

The movie is a mixed bag. Acting, and story is pretty subpar on all levels. The reason to own this movie is some great action scenes. (short, but very well done, and very bloody), and the great cinematography. Tarsem is great at creating gorgeous movies. Just wish there was more substance to Immortals. A little OT, but you guys should really check out the movie The Fall. NOT 3D, but one of the best looking films I've ever seen.

thanks conan, just picked up the fall from amazon at 19 bucks. As for immortals, 3d is good but movie is bad (in my opinion).

I just ordered Immortals and Conan 3d, I've got the feeling the movies will be bad but action packed. I hope entertaining enough to compensate for story or acting.

you know i didnt meant to disparage anyone from immortals. It's not unwatchable. it just wasn't as good as i expected. The effects / 3d is worth the watch. btw i found the fall on netflix incase anyone else is interested. this movie has great reviews.

I saw this at my local theatre on the XD 3D theatre and it was very good. The 3D was good but could have been better. Not to much pop effect in it. I found myself more into the battle sequences than the 3D effects.

Maybe on Blu it will be better.

I'm on my way now to BB for the 3D version. The Fall is one of the most visual movies I have ever seen. I hope Immortals looks as good.

Not as good, but better then 90% of Hollywood crap. I really like how Tarsem plans/blocks his shots. Everything in the frame has been thought out. Costumes are pretty good, albeit slightly over the top. Micky "crab head" Rourke anyone. LOL

The slowmo head disintegration scene was epic!

I had this pre-ordered but canceled and will rent it before buying it from 3D Blu Ray Rental.

Hope it's good because I've already ordered and waiting for delivery, but will post back after taking a look at it.

this was a conversion? wow.

some of the best depth i've ever seen the ocean shots at the village in the cliff were epic. outstanding 3d.
post #14 of 50
Good depth but no pop
post #15 of 50
Saw it last night. Great 3D depth. Well done but overall, I felt the entire movie except one scene when the 4 came in ( one was the Oracle). That was proper brightness and easy to view. Don't know why these directors can't get enough lighting. Most of the rest was too dark.

That's what I thought too. The movie is so dark it's a trade-off because the 3-D makes the already-dim cinematography look even harder to see than it is otherwise. I actually turned off the 3-D version about 30 minutes in and felt I got more enjoyment out of it, but YMMV obviously.

On the whole I wasn't crazy about the movie either. Definitely watchable (loved the costumes and Frieda Pinto) but the ending was really weak and the story woefully under-developed even by the standards of this genre. Not a keeper IMO.

The 2D should have alternate endings and an alternate beginning. I haven't had time to view these yet.

Like Ralph, I enjoy these mythological movies so that was not my problem with this purchase. It was the dark video.

Everyone has to have the gratuitous "popout" or they feel cheated. Somewhere near the end there was a fight scene where some stuff popped into the foreground but it didn't last long.
post #18 of 50
The 3d depth was great, there was one scene with pop out "can't exatly remember but It was the mentor horns". I didn't think the movie was too dark I have an d8000 led which may be a factor. The alternate beginning explains some back story, I understand why they cut out the alternate beginning and endings. I recommend this one, I was unsure at first but at $20 its a must buy for 3d lovers.
post #19 of 50
I finally saw this today. While there really wasn't anything in the way of stuff popping out of the screen the sense of depth was very visible for a post-conversion. The director obviously had 3D in mind when framing the shots, placing objects in the foreground and generally keeping the camera fixed for many shots. As such most scenes, even the darker ones, have a nice separation of foreground to background objects. Ghosting was also pretty much a non-factor on my 2010 Samsung plasma.

In terms of the film itself, I found it entertaining and it had some good performances but I didn't think it was a well paced as other recent films from the same genre. It clearly tries to ape the 300 aesthetic but never quite manages to attain that movie's visual flair. The sets are also fairly simplistic and its kind of obvious that the budget was a limiting factor. Still, definitely worth a viewing and one of the better post-conversions released yet.

Just finished watching Immortals in 3D and was about to post my own experiences with it, but TonyDP summed it up nicely in the post above this one. I'd agree with everything he said, except that I watched it on a 2011 Samsung Plasma. This was probably the best 2D to 3D conversion that I've seen, thus far.

In addition, there is quite a bit of heavy bass in the movie and it should probably hold at least a 4 1/2 stars spot in the "top bass movies" database.

I watched last night, and I agree with the comments made by posters ozar and TonyDP.

Well my copy arrived form amazon this week finally. I myself saw this at the XD 3d screen at my theatre and at home on my 110" 1.4 gain screen with a 3D projector. Between the 2 i would say that i enjoyed viewing it more at home. There was indeed alot of dark scenes but nothing to complain about. There was some great depth here and there but hardly no pop to any of the scenes except maybe a couple. I also did not see any ghosting or crosstalk. I enjoyed it and i would watch it again in 3D.

Oh and I forgot to ask this but does anyone know if the 3D blu-ray has previews or trailers of upcoming movies before the movie starts? I am not sure if it's the movie or my player but the last 2 movies have been going straight to the Movie Menu. Journey TO The Center Of The Earth was my other disc that had no previews.



Thanks.

I watched in 3D on Saturday. Some crosstalk in the dark scenes on my Samsung LED...not terrible. Still, I'm not sure that 3D added to the overall experience. On a side note, the movie is truly style over substance.
post #24 of 50
I enjoyed the 3D quite a bit. I checked my brain at the door and really ended up enjoying the movie for what it was. I watched it on my Panasonic 60GT30 and did not mind the darker 3D scenes.

Hope you did remember to pick it back up on your way out !
post #26 of 50
Entertaining yes, but not a keeper like 300 was.

3D doesn't make it a keeper either.
post #27 of 50
I was mostly struck by how short the movie was.

So far I only watched it on a 32" Visio in my bedroom which mostly eliminates any popout. I'll have to give it a shot on the ol' 65" DLP.
post #28 of 50
I saw it in the theaters and like it, so I picked up the 3D Blu-Ray. Conan was there too...but the bad reviews and quick exit from theaters scared me away. Have watched it yet because I saw it in the theaters a couple months ago, but you're getting a biased review from a Mickey Rourke fan . The man was born to play the villain, LOL.

Just watched the 3D Blu-Ray. Mickey Rourke ...pours flammable liquid on the guy and nonchalently tips over a torch to light him on fire! Its how nonchalently he does it ! He's vicious, yet nonchalent, he kills me !

My rental from 3Dblurayrental.com arrived yesterday. I'm going to wait so the wife can watch but I did watch some of it and what I saw for 3D, story and acting I thought was very good. I was very impressed by the look of the film and Look forward to watching all of it and if it holds up, I will pick up the 3D BD for sure.

Thanks.

It started without any 3D trailers.
