Just got my 3D TV, which movies should I check out to get the full effect? - Page 2

post #31 of 62
Thinking about getting these 3D blu-rays

Conversion 2D-3D
Thor
Captain America
Green Hornet (bad movie)?
Priest (bad movie)?

True 3D
Resident Evil: Afterlife (bad movie)?
Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (bad movie)?
Hugo

Have you guys seen any of these and can comment on the 3D effects?

Hugo and RE: Afterlife have great 3D.

Captain America and Pirates 4 have okay 3D.

Thor, Green Hornet, Priest have mediocre to poor 3D.

Not seen Thor or Green Hornet in 3D.
Captain America is pretty decent 3D considering its a conversion, so is Priest.

Resident Evil & Hugo are very good and pirates is not bad, just a bit lacking in decent 3D composition for my taste.

I own all of these except for Pirates of the Caribbean. As to my opinons....

Thor: very entertaining movie but negligible 3D; no popouts, minimal depth and the movie was clearly shot without 3D in mind.

Captain America: very good movie (I'd rank it with the first Iron Man) and good 3D; not much pop-out (though there is a great shot of Cap's shield flying towards you) and a moderate sense of depth for most of the running time.

Green Hornet: decent movie (though it turns the original material on its ear) and decent but not particularly noteworthy post-conversion; decent depth but no real pop-outs.

Priest: I actually found this to be a pretty entertaining movie and not nearly deserving of the negative reviews; the 3D was passable with decent depth but no real pop-outs.

Resident Evil: Your typical "check your brain at the door and you'll have a good time" movie; silly but entertaining; very strong sense of depth and a few decent pop-outs

Hugo: Well made film but subject matter is not for everyone and some may find it tedious or boring. 3D is very strong but if your display is prone to ghosting (older plasmas or LCDs) this will be a problematic disc.

Hope that helps.

Fright Night. Was not expecting quality 3D but it turned out to be one of the best next to Hugo & Avatar.

Is there any settings you recommend? I saw this pop out setting that went from 0 to 4. Is this a setting based upon preference only? Like how much 3D can your eye's take before it's awkward? Any suggestions would be great on movies with excellent 3D and/or settings for 3D.

I own the Panasonic 65VT50 TV. I believe the pop out setting 0 to 4 that you're referring to applies to the menu window, not the actually pop out level of the movie.

The imax documentaries have the best pop out effects IMO. Hubble was pretty cool, as were the underwater documentaries. As for normal movies, Avatar, Transformers Dark of the Moon, and (when it comes out) Avengers would be the only 3D movies that I'd actually go out and buy. I find that quite a bit of the cgi stuff like despicable me and tangled are pretty good as well.

Avatar was over three hours long. If it was shot like the Imax 3D movies with massive amounts of pop-out, people would have left theatres with raging headaches long before the end of the movie. Pop-out is hard work on the eyes so normal movies avoid it so people can actually enoy a full length feature film. I think you pop out fans forget that!

I understand what your saying about pop out but my experience is the people who complain of headaches complain about it whether or not the negative parallax is present or not and people think 3d sucks because there isn't enough pop out. So basically what I'm saying is a bit more pop out by directors will further 3d not hinder it.

I bought a Toshiba 240 hertz 1080p super thin 3D Net TV & a Panasonic 3D 1000 watt blu-ray Net TV, Bluetooth player, I have only found a handful of 3D movies that pop-pit effect.
Amazing Effects:
Journey to the the mysterious Island smile.gif
Journey to the center of the earth * these are the latest / closet today to being made smile.gif
Ghost rider 2 was ok, some very few items came out of the screen
Sector 7 same as above *NOTE* it's not in English & it's hard to read something and still watch the movie.
Prometheus was very disappointing, No pop-out at all
Piranha 3DD had allot of out of screen smile.gif
I waited 4ever for Avatar on 3D, waist of $$$ I was so upset that my dvd or tv can convert 2D to 3D. that's what avatar had NOT ONE Pop-out seen. mad.gif
Resident evil Afterlife 3D has some pop-out but not enough for me
Priest NO Pop-out just the depth
Wrath of the titans had pop-outs throughout and allot of depth smile.gif
Thor has good Pop-out on some parts but not enough the rest of 3D movies is just depth.
Transformers Dark Side of the Moon had allot of pop-out throughout the movie. smile.gif
John Carter had NO Pop-outs, just depth however I love this movie! smile.gif
Underworld the Awakening had just a couple of pop-outs, the rest was depth

I certainly agree with "Journey" but not "Piranha".

I am somewhat puzzled that no one is commenting on the short running times of the IMAX disks. They only run for about 45 minutes, about half the length of an average movie, and yet they charge as much for them as a full length movie. They would have to include a $10 bill in the package before I would buy one.

In terms of price, it depends on what studio releases them. While the WB Imax features are overpriced, all the Imax features released by Image Entertainment sell for $15 or less, which I think is quite reasonable for a 3D BluRay with a running time of around 45 minutes.

Good site listing if the movies were shot with the true 2 camera stereo system, and lists the ones that were converted in post.

Hugo has great 3d but put me to sleep

Pacific Rim 3D - Got it... watched it... loved it.

This now ranks as one of my favorite 3D blurays. The PQ was incredible, vivid imagery, a fun movie, and the 3D definitely added to the experience without distracting from it. The only distraction was that I kept thinking about how good the picture looked while I was watching the movie. And a big bonus for me and my early generation Sony 3DTV is that there was zero ghosting (outside of a little ghosting on the occasional subtitle).

I can't believe how many people here have said something similar to this regarding Hugo. What a great film that was in every way. The story was amazing. (No judgement - everyone has their own preferences - I'm just surprised by it)

I will gladly buy this 3D movie off anyone who is put to sleep by it. PM me.

I'm relatively new to the 3D scene, but one of the movies I'm most impressed with so far is Dredd: I thought the use of 3D was excellent, and worked very well with the graphic-novel style cinematography. The movie itself was also highly entertaining. I also enjoyed Coraline, Avatar, and Life of Pi. The most outrageous, in-your-face 3D goes to Pacific Rim. Star Trek: Into Darkness didn't really impress me, and talk about uber-excessive lens-flare effects; not just lens-flare, but reflections off glass, and just about every other optical/lighting effect you can think of thrown in - way over the top to the point of being distracting.

Same thought here. But it is not an action/adventure film. (a category I also like)

Hugo brings us the flavor of the beginnings of film. Along with visual delights, whimsy and interesting characters. In mood it is more like a foreign film w/o subtitles.

I recently got the 3D version, haven't watched it yet.

I own about 40 3d titles. If you are looking for pop out. Sammy's Adventure is the king. It is an obscure animated title. I got my copy from an Amazon store front. Make sure it's region A or 1, it's a foreign film. It is in English however.
