Everest

3D Blu-ray

Those mountain scenes hiking up the ridge lines were pretty realistic.

Dragon - Love is a scary tale - 3D



Bar code: 4013549077750
ASIN: B01F4GQKQW

He is Dragon / Dragon -Love is a scary tale - 3D Bluray (Russian, German, sub: German)
AKA: On Drakon, I Am Dragon, other....

Where to find it:
http://www.bookbutler.co.uk/movie/co...=4013549077750


I watched this German/Russian bluray 2d-3d single disc, after watching the movie on tv and a 2d bluray version in my language. Good depth and pop outs, some flat scenes. Being 3D available only in German/Russian+German subtitles, I'd suggest this after a 2d vision in your own language. Then, once you know the story, if you like it and want more of this movie, this (rare to find) 3d bluray is a good add on to watch in original Russian language, or loading external subtitles.
This is a love story, so I don't want to add more to respect other personal feelings, but I must warn there is very dramatic short intro not suitable for kids(human sacrifice to the dragon, skip forward to the end of it...) followed by dark dragon's lair action (you expect a bit of chase and flames in a dragon movie!) and after 40' it turns old-Disney-proof.
I highly appreciated the story and insights of realization, rebellion and redemption, the beautiful nordic costumes, scenery and music.
In my opinion, if romance is among your movie interests, I'd watch this one ignoring all trailers or reviews to avoid spoilers and opinions although they are mostly positive.
On the other hand, if you are just looking for action dragon adventure, I'd ignore the commercial GOT-like claims and watch something else.

PS I'm editing this post about the 3D movie (or 2D) with more informations and answers, you can ask me in pvt since this isn't a dedicated discussion.

I finally got around to renting this movie when the rental fee dropped. I did not want to spend the money to buy it. It turned out to be better than expected.

The story is not bad, but predictable, with some decent performances. It has the usual material, sabotage, conspiracy, sibling rivalry, working class hero versus dumb bureaucrats. It is scientifically beyond belief. The visuals are impressive, as you said.

I also watched it on a home theater screen in 3D (Da-Lite 77324 60x80, Optoma HD25e, Sony player, Denon surround system). It looks and sounds good.

I really don't understand why a 3D edition was released only in German/Russian (and not even 2d for Spain and latin countries, only France and Italy). 3D market is strange, and I read that was a low budget production compared to many others.

PS Next time I'm editing post #842 about the movie with more info or answers, you may ask me in pvt since this isn't a dedicated discussion.

Nurse 3D

For a slasher flick, it wasn't half bad.

The 3D effects were hit or miss. A few good pop outs, but other times it looked like standard 2D.

Lots of depth and some pop out - not a movie (more like a scenery disc) but shot with 3D in mind

I collect sci-fi/horror and I double dipped on this because I really enjoyed it. The 3D really made it come to life.

Godzilla: King of Monsters Best Buy 3D bluray

This is a hard one to review. If you are a true Godzilla fan, then you might tire of all the dialogue and pre-monster stuff getting to the Godzilla vs. other monsters war. If you are a fan of Stranger Things, then you might like it because of Millie Bobby Brown being a central character. I saw the 2014 version and thought it was ok, this movie definitely tops that. But the humans spend way too much time making confusing decisions in this one and take themselves way to seriously, so there's little fun in character development.

Since the reviews are all over the map, I won't go into what I liked or didn't like, but let's just say the fundamental nuclear and heat radiation from the monsters (called Titans in the movie), would have killed off the main characters ten times over, but then we wouldn't have a movie to watch.... The movie focuses on the forced regeneration of 4 monsters, by the usual misguided antagonists (to adjust the natural order of life on Earth--what? why?), of which, Godzilla is the one to save all mankind by killing the other monsters. And, wow, this time they are huge, really huge and full of radiation, lightening and fire breathing.

50% of the movie is vague character development and careless running around and decision making. And then the monsters take over and the real fun begins.

The 3D is good to excellent, but the coloration, and sometimes foggy dark images with bright diffused lighting, make some scenes less interesting. There are no gotchya popouts, but during the airplane fighting the monsters with missiles scenes, there are some cool missile launch shots. I would give 3D a 4 of 5. CGI was excellent, and the technology used to track and fight the monsters was well done. And the audio--turn down the woofer, or you'll have the neighbors pounding on your door-- If there was issue, the loudness of the dialogue and the background monster noises were too far apart, and I found myself constantly fiddling with the volume. Unless you have free reign to listen at high volume, other family members, not watching, are going to be yelling to turn it down constantly. I would give audio a 4 of 5 because of that, but if you can have it turned up with full woofer, then 5 of 5. Good surround as well.

It's a PG13 movie and probably a family movie, but with f-bombs here and there to make it more adult. Too intense for kids, though, in my opinion. All in all, I enjoyed it, and it's worthy of having in my 3D collection. Definitely a popcorn movie, where you have to leave your mind at the door, though. The included bonuses on the 2D disc showed who the monsters are and how they came to be, and how the monster-cgis were created using humans and green screens--very interesting. But don't watch that before you see the movie.

Re-Watching all IMAX 3D films that are available.

Watched


Into the Deep (1994)

Viewed this on the 65" OLED, just wow! Colors really come alive. 3D is really strong, there is some push back 2D but not much.

Galapagos (1999)

Also viewed on OLED. 3D really good, some scenes were push back 3D but minimal use. Visual masterpiece.

Ultimate G's (2000)



Recent purchase, hadn't seen before. A drama piece. Best parts are last 15-20 minutes. Aerial shots, 3D not great given working distance.

Space Station (2002)


Fantastic piece. Showing the early days of the ISS when the Space Shuttles still flew. 3D top notch and image quality is great. Glad to see this one again.

Deep Sea (2006)


Viewed some of this before on 3Net when that 3D channel was around, first time viewing on Blu ray 3D. Stunning picture quality. Good range of 3D, not a lot of popout, a few scenes like when the squid attacks the camera. At least one scene of an octopus was not 3D, a 2D scene with 3D pushback, but fortunately I didn't notice any other 2D scenes. Looks fantastic on LG OLED, the blues and blacks really come alive.

Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs (2007)



Next up is Mummies, haven't viewed this one in years. I noticed the 3D was a little light and discovered that it was actually a conversion. But after doing some research they did plan for 3D as well as giant screen and dome from start to finish. Conversion was done by Sassoon Film Design. This is an early conversion, back in 2007. I think it's pretty well done. Obviously not as good as native but the 3D does add depth and brings you into the scene more. Overall, it's worth viewing in 3D.

This was filmed in a docudrama style. Has a big budget feel. Historical reenactments with actors.

Ocean Wonderland

I checked this one out of a local library collection yesterday. It is billed as "Jean-Michel Cousteau presents" and "Originally Presented in IMAX 3D theaters." It has both 3D and 2D on the same disc. It is only 41 minutes long.

The 3D cinematography is excellent, although the water does seem a bit murky most of the time. Narration, by Geoffrey Bateman, gives voice to a sea turtle as he moves through coral reefs. This story is low on energy. It is also not very informative, except for the part about the reefs dying, and why they are dying.

I enjoyed the cinematography, but wished the movie was more interesting.

This is better than Jean-Michel Cousteau's other, similar documentary, "Sharks", which was filmed a year later. It is not nearly as good as two other IMAX underwater films, "Under the Sea" and "Deep Sea" that I have seen.

Dinosaurs: Giants of the Patagonia (2007)


Some CGI only seemed 3D up close when it was popping out of screen but overall it's a decent program for learning about dinosaurs. Overall, about the same at Dinosaurs Alive on 3D and image quality.

Dinosaurs Alive! (2007)


There seemed to be some scenes that were 2D, like in the early museum shots. They did use the big IMAX 3D camera and a dual ARRI side by side rig so the image quality and native 3D should be present throughout, however I found it lacking on both. Some scenes were 2D like the museum shots early on and really these would be easy in 3D yet they were flat. Wondering if they didn't get the 3D right or something because it looks like a flat 3D pushback. Watching the making of special the side by side rig, the interaxial must be 8 inches at least which is pretty far apart. If they used this camera on their motion shots it's no wonder they had too much disparity.

Overall, most of it was 3D. But yes in some scenes they had too much disparity and you can see when you take the glasses off it's going to cause crosstalk on some screens. CGI 3D, it's not bad I guess considering it was done in 2007 and looks about the same as "Giants of the Patagonia", won't blow anyone away today. To me the image quality didn't really look as crisp as some other IMAX films. Maybe the transfer was from a HD transfer and not 4K, I suppose that would make sense since there was quite of bit of 3D CGI rendering involved, a 4K transfer would be too much to work with at the time. So this should look better than it does but at best it looks like it was filmed with decent HD cameras.

DUMBO - 3D Rental


This movie got a lot of bad press, and as a rewrite of the original cartoon, it's a puzzle. Actors like Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton did okay jobs, but it had the usual dark feel of Tim Burton.

That said, I really liked the early 1919 sets. They were well done and don't look CGI, so they were probably full-scale mockups. The story is definitely a family story of mother and child, albeit, elephants. That didn't get translated to the characters human relationships, though, which was puzzling. But I was fascinated by the sets, and that made me want to watch the whole movie.

3D was adequate and depth was excellent. There were only a few popouts like a cane sticking out into the audience kind of stuff. I would give 3D a 4.5 of 5 instead of 5 of 5, as they missed some good opportunities to push objects into the audience more.

Audio was adequate, but I didn't feel it added much to the movie. I would give it a 3.5 of 5.

Scenes (depth of field) were very sharp almost all the time, and it felt like the director had 3D in mind. Your eyes are almost always forced to closer objects to the screen even in long shots, so some depth gets lost, but the native-3D feeling was there, though this was a conversion.

I liked the color and quality, as it made it feel old without being forced, although some might disagree with me.

As for CGI, the elephants were done very well and life-like. If I had a concern, I would say that in scenes with normal elephants vs. Dumbo, the normal elephant ears were not big enough as real-life elephants. I scratched my head over that, as I've seen many elephants in the wild. It was probably done to accentuate Dumbo's ears, I guess.

I think it's worthy of watching with the family. Kids will probably think they are watching a real elephant fly, so be ready for, "how did they do that?"

IMAX Deep Sea 3D

I just got this as part of a 7 movie set of 3D Blu-rays I won on ebay.

Watched this before Game 1 of the ALCS. A friend of mine came over to watch the game, and caught the last 20 minutes or so. We were both impressed with the quality of the 3D.

AVENGERS: ENDGAME 3.25/5
3D: 4.5/5


Watched my copy last week and I still have a few issues with the movie, but enjoyed it a little more with this being my 2nd viewing. It just isn’t the superhero I guess I was really expecting but still didn’t mind the more emotional tone it took overall. The 3D presentation was good too, but I gotta say it didn’t reach the awesome height set by Infinity War blu-ray. The 7.1 DTS-HMDA track was also pretty good when the volume was adjusted a bit higher like most recent Disney releases. Even better when you can add the Neural X on top of the track. Well worth the import for 3D fans

Grand Canyon: River at Risk (2007)


One of my favorite IMAX features. Everything about this one is good. Detail, color, story, 3D. Seen this one multiple times.

Wild Ocean (2008)

Part underwater part land part aerial. Centering around yearly sardine run in South Africa, showing the predators in a feeding frenzy. 3D tended to be a bit minimal overall with most of the action taking place further than the 3D camera would allow. Other scenes especially above water gave better range of good 3D. Overall, it's worth watching in 3D, some really good shots of dolphins and sharks.

This line intentionally left blank.

Hugo

3D Blu-ray

First time watching it. I see why it's on the list of best 3D movies. I reached out to grab one of the prints floating in the air when the box hit the ground and they came flying out!

I, Frankenstein

3D Blu-ray

Pretty good 3D presentation, and not to bad of a movie either. Bonus for having Yvonne Strahovski in it!

I managed to watch "The Secret Life of Pets 2" recently as my UK copy had shipped through. Illumination has gone all out on 3D depth in this film so if you like seeing animated films in 3D with depth this is worth picking up, particularly if you've collected the other Despicable Me/Minions releases. It looks like they are using negative parallax in some degree for a number of scenes (ie wolf snouts seemingly protruding partially from the screen among other things) or have adjusted the before/after 3D window plane so there is a bit more casual use of it, however I find it pretty difficult to tell so YMMV. Story wise less coherent than the first movie (which focused on Max and Duke) as there is really probably 4 mini-movies rolled into one with one being the central story arc that integrates elements from the other 3. If you like audio the 3D UK (and ANZ) disc includes Dolby Atmos so no need to remux your own version (however, I don't have an Atmos setup so can't comment on how well the Atmos is mixed).

Edit: I was hoping the UK release would have a digital copy included (they dropped it unfortunately between pre-order vs release, probably as UltraViolet is going away) however usually I'd get the ANZ release to support local 3D releases.

I got a chance to watch the meg I really liked the 3D depth and little pop out. Movie overall is jaws 3D for 2018 the ocean depth and creatures were cool story line was meh. The audio was good subs were rumbling nice low end. I really don’t know how else to critique it. I wish my 3D projector was better I used epson 6020 with a anamorphic lens but it’s a lil blurred and it doesn’t support all the features the newer epson do for 3D like frame interpolation and super res in 3D mode. I got it hooked up to a darbee.
