Tron Legacy

Documentary: TT3D Closer to the Edge. (something about 200mph motorcycle racing through small city streets was just awesome)

I also enjoy the Michael Jackson disk (it’s a 2D/3D mix however).

I am not that crazy about Avatar.

IMAX's Rivers at Risk is a good demo of 3D done right. Of course, they've been shooting with dual camera rigs for quite some time.

Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. Dubbing isn't great and the martial artists fly like Superman but the 3D is the best I've seen in a live action film.

3D is good but the 2.4:1 aspect ratio definitely affects depth and pop on standard 1.78:1 3D TV's. Also thought the movie itself was mediocre at best.




For me, the best 3D can be found in the Imax documentaries: Under the Sea, Hubble 3D, Legends of Flight and Grand Canyon all have demo worthy material.


In terms of live action movies, Journey to the Center of the Earth and Journey 2: Mysterious Island have aggressive 3D with lots of pop, though the films, while fun, won't win any awards for writing or acting.


Men in Black 3, Jurassic Park and Captain America are the best post-converted 3D movies I've seen.


MegaMind and Meet the Robinsons are the best CGI 3D movies I've seen both in terms of effects and story.


That's my 2 cents.

maybe good for post conversions... but JP sucked in 3d... i didn't even finish watching the entire movie. the movie is like a 10/10. the 3d is like a 3/10 IMO

How/where did you see the movie? Yes, I will agree that the 3D is not the best, but that's more a problem with how the movie was originally made and the resulting grain, lens flare issues, etc. The 3D when the tram car is falling through the tree is quite good. The scenic views of the dinos are so-so due to the so-so cgi capability of that time period. But I still like it better in 3D than not.

Primitive CGI notwithstanding, the first shot of Grant and Ellie looking up at the bracheosaur exhibited great height and mass - a great example of 3D extending an image in my opinion. A late shot of the raptor jumping up towards the screen and popping out elicited some squeals and jumps both at the movie theater and at home. Despite the fact that the film is over 20 years old it still managed to elicit a lot of great 3D moments (far moreso than say Phantom Menace).

Looking at the packaging it doesn't say anything about which version it is but looking at Amazon the HK version has a different picture on the front. The one I have has this picture:

http://www.amazon.com/Flying-Special-Edition-Exclusive-Content/dp/B009T6EM4G/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1372512851&sr=8-7&keywords=flying+swords+of+dragon+gate


It's listed as unavailable.


Found it at Walmart for $18.40

http://www.walmart.com/ip/21618907?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227000000000&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=21486607510&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=19880599990&veh=sem


I did have a hard time trying to play the English subtitles but eventually got it to work and as I said the 3D was stunning, the first half of the movie with depth and the last part with things flying out at you.

I force my girlfriend into many a 3d movie. I know she's not the biggest fan of it. However she did say whoaaa that's so cool a few times while watching "the great and powerful oz". I myself was surprised that i liked it. I was only in it for the eye candy. Great depth some pop out and great picture quality I recommend it

My favourite 3D animated movie right now is Madagascar 3. Lots of out of the screen effects (negative parallax), great visuals and it is pretty funny to boot. A really nice 3D packag

Which Michael Jackson disc are you referring to?
