It would have been a great movie in 3d though! I might try and let my tv up convert it to 3d and give it a shot

Can your Blu-ray player, or HDTV, or UHD TV, or AV receiver, or SSP upconvert the 2D picture into 3D. ...If yes try it; that is your very best shot because don't count on Christopher Nolan to direct a 3D flick, just no way Jose. And not only that but you are lucky to have sounds coming from your surrounds. ...Chris is from a similar Woody Allen's school when it comes to 'Sound'. He just go above Woody, with a higher overall volume level, and sticks with 5.1 sound. ...Marty Scorsese is another film director with a unique touch when it comes to Music soundtracks in his film (big Rolling Stones' fan).

Anyway, the sound here is loud in its overall awesomeness. ...Very pleasant for sound freaks, like I.
And no 3D picture; abso!utely not, ...not from Chris Nolan. ...Not in this galaxy, and not in this 'lower' technology of our times. ...I love 3D, but it is way way way far then being close to be perfect...perhaps in another ten years or more when all 3D glasses will become extinct for good.

Yeah, try the 2D>3D upconversion, and see if you like what it does.

I agree, would have been a great film for 3D but it was still a great film in 2D. I have to admit, between Interstellar and Gravity, probably the two best movies in the last 20 years.

Some of these directors are just not up to the brain power to think in 3 dimensions.
I'm often amazed they are smart enough to use a green screen for some things. More likely they rely on their DP for the more technical aspects of the production and stay focused on the acting. I know the director I worked with on our TV show was a tough sell on green screen shooting. We finally agreed that I would just take care of it and he should stay focused on pulling performance out of our guests. An area that I have no patience for.
Don't assume all directors are experts in the more technical advances in production. Many are afraid of it, not that they hate it. Truth be told, they avoid stuff in the business they don't understand how to control so they won't come across as ignorant or incompetent.

Pearls before swine. Can you say "gild the lilly"? What's next - you're gonna ask if someone can jazz up Tolstoy's prose because Anna Karenina just isn't enough of a perfect book for you?

I saw Interstellar in glorious 70mm film in Hollywood - the idea of it being converted to 3D just makes me :facepalm:

smh

Hm.. I'm not sure if anyone knows what gravitational lensing looks like up close in 3D.

But anyway, I'm a big stickler for director's intent.. so if it's not shot in 3D, I'm perfectly happy to watch it in 2D.

I saw it at our new Imax theater. For me, it cried out for 3D. Furthermore, I decided that, that enormous screen actually was a net minus. It degrades the resolution of the film and seeing giant people and faces that are 30' high, adds nothing. Soon after that, I saw the third Hobbit movie on that same screen. My impression was the exact opposite . It was a totally immersive feeling. I've decided that I don't intend to ever see a 2D movie on an Imax screen again, but will instead see them on a standard sized movie screen.

All that said, I do like this movie. We watched the BD last night at home on a 10' wide screen. Actually, I'm almost to the point where I like movies on a screen where the people and faces are closer to life sized better than on a larger movie screen. Also, the sound on this movie is nothing short of awesome- unless you're my wife who was trying to watch TV upstairs and was feeling her couch rattling from the 4 subwoofers in the theater room below.

Im letting my Samsung 4k do the 3d conversion, its okay. I had to turn the settings way up but its still not enough. I hope one day there is a good 3d conversion. The first 3rd of the movie didnt need it, the other 2/3rds would have really made it more immersive

I've experimented using the 3D conversion with my Panny bluray players and my Epson projectors. IMO it's not worth bothering with. Looks like crap.:rolleyes:

I do wonder if my Sony 7200 can do a better job of converting to 3d, but never tried.

I agree with that, definite!y.

It would have been real cool if it would have been done exactly that way; where you put on your 3D glasses only for the second and third acts.

* I watched it last night, on a 60" plasma, and I was blown away by the audio soundtrack in my own living room theater.
Sure, it wasn't a big screen like when I saw it @ the theater, but on my smallish display I enjoyed the nice shiny quality picture, with lesser grain.

Next time that I watch it I will try 2D>3D conversion and from my Oppo BR player and from my Samsung TV, to see which of which does the better job.
And I have three other 3D Blu-ray players that also do 2D to 3D conversion so that I can check them too; two Sonys and one Samsung BR players.

Yes, 'Interstellar' asks us to be in 3D, that's fo sur. ...And with 3D sound too; DTS:X or Atmos. ...But lucky for the people who can enjoy it right now with Dolby Atmos' own Surround sound Up-mixer/processor; Dolby Surround Up-mixer (DSU) and/or with Auro-Matic 3D (up-mixer too).

Beam me Up into Orbit Scott! :cool::D ...Right inside that wormhole. :eek::cool:
