Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

I just watched Avatar WOW.

I think this script was written by a bunch of 8th graders. Yikes!

Probably the best looking movie I’ve ever seen. Amazing.
the 3-D is incredible.

Level your expectations and it’s fun despite the minimal resources and child-like storytelling (which was absolutely intentional). Just seeing this in true 3D for the first time ever on home video — with its rare original lead-in short film — was a real treat, and they went all-out on the bonus material thanks to the Kickstarter response.

The Amazon version should be identical except for the lenticular cover insert.

It IS considered one of the worst movies of all time. But if they were able to shoot it in 3D, then ANY movie can.

If you pre-ordered Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 from Amazon Japan, the shipping rate has dropped.
For the standard release, you can cancel and re-order. Any other versions (Steelbook) are OOS, so you'll have to use chat.

I had 75 points from Quantumania to apply too. Mine came out to about $65 was $83

Got Jurassic World: Dominion 3D last week for $40 at Amazon. Wish I hadn't bothered because the 3D was a joke. No pop-out effects at all (no surprise) and the added depth was very minimal and all behind the screen. There were many times where I saw no 3D effect whatsoever, especially during dark scenes. Another shoddy conversion. When will I learn to stop getting my hopes up? If you like this movie, buy a 2D version of it for less.

I can confirm that Dragonfly Squadron and Hugo look fantastic in 3D.

I had Sin City and the Sharks one years ago, but I can't remember how good the 3D was on those, so I guess they didn't make as big of an impression as the other two.

Also, I see Drive Angry is on that list. It is a ridiculously silly and fun kick ass movie and the 3D is awesome in it.

Guardians 3 isn’t so bad a conversion. Still crappy movie.

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

I hadn't tried to watch a 3D movie on my projector in a long time, but I'm in the middle of a Transformers marathon with my son and have a couple of those movies in 3D, so I figured it was time to get that working again.

Dark of the Moon is decent and has some very effective 3D at times, but overall depth usage seemed timid and I didn't spot any pop-outs. [Edit: Looking at it again, it seems there is some mild pop-out with debris from explosions flying toward the camera.] The image was also quite dim on my screen, which led me to assume the aging lamp in my projector isn't capable of pumping out enough brightness for 3D anymore.

However, Age of Extinction 3D is fantastic. The picture is much brighter (the 3D disc was mastered with a deliberate brightness boost compared to the 2D copy) and the 3D much stronger. Just about every scene in the movie has impressive depth. It even has some cool pop-outs at times.This one made me feel much better about 3D on my screen.

Well, Random Space Media in Australia just announced they're going out of business. They were the last hope for most recent 3D titles. Glad I bought all the ones they put out at least. Will have to get Super Mario Bros on Vudu now, and be thankful I can at least get it that way.

Pretty sure the Sony 3D titles were only in Australia, though, and I doubt any other market will carry on the tradition. Movienex editions seem to be all Marvel at this point.

I always wondered if Random Space would survive, considering how few titles they actually released.

There’s a company in Germany that just said they’ll be picking up some Universal 3D titles so we’ll see how that goes. Watched Mario on Vudu and thought it was great even though the resolution was lacking. It seems they are actually using side by side even on the apps that support 3D, so don’t know why they can’t just make those playable on everything.

I liked Mario 3D on Vudu. Very colorful. Not stupendous, but good.

Watched BIOHAZARD: DAMNATION 3D last night (known over here as RESIDENT EVIL: DAMNATION). It’s the second feature-length CG animated film in that series, from 2012, and I believe the only one created and released in 3D, and as far as I know only on 3D Blu-ray in Japan, which is where mine came from. I wasn’t sure if it was some kind of post-conversion, but then recalled that that wasn’t really necessary with these types of CG pictures, as aside from a few dodgy bits that don’t quite ‘read’ properly (wet pavement in dark parking garage; smog/dust in a church) it’s a great watch in 3D – especially during the spectacular final battle – and for my money one of the best entries in both the CG and live-action series. No pop-outs for the first 20 minutes or so, but then some excellent ones regularly after that (knives, guns, creature tentacle thingies). I don’t know shit about the games, but apparently these animated movies take place in between various releases, so others may benefit from that but this one’s still good fun for the rest of us.

Just noticed THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE (1983) is up at Kino Lorber, restored by the 3D Film Archive. Not sure why the Canuxploitation guys were contracted for a commentary on this one as I don't recall it being a Canadian film (apart from co-stars Art Hindle and the considerably nude Lisa Langlois):
https://kinolorber.com/product/the-m...sn-t-there-3-d

Product Extras :
  • Newly Restored in 3-D by 3-D Film Archive - From 4K Scans of the 35mm Original Camera Negative by Paramount Pictures
  • NEW Audio Commentary by Paul Corupe of Canuxploitation.com and Film Historian Jason Pichonsky
  • Theatrical Trailer (3-D / 2-D)
  • Includes the 2D, the BD3D Polarized and Anaglyphic (Red/Cyan) 3-D Versions
  • Contains One Pair of Anaglyphic 3-D Glasses
  • Optional English Subtitles

A unique and riveting theatrical experience, CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO (CVR) is a performance documentary derived entirely from the “Black Box” transcripts of six major real-life airline emergencies.
Spoiler:
When you board an airplane, who are those people in uniform to whom you entrust your life? What do they really do when things go horribly wrong? Derived entirely from the Cockpit Voice Recorder transcripts of six major airline incidents and accidents, CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO puts the audience inside the tension-filled cockpits of actual flights in distress, offering a fascinating portrait of the psychology of crisis and a person’s will to live to the last second.

“[This] chilling and groundbreaking production stretches the boundaries of film, theatre, and the traditional documentary with this stereoscopic 3-D film of a stage play that recreates transcripts word for word. CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO transports film audiences into the best seats of the theatre and delivers the intensity and gut-wrenching emotion of these emergencies via the unique approach of live performance.” - Shari Frilot, senior programmer Sundance Film Festival & New Frontier

Never heard of it before. I watched the trailer.

Why in the world would this be presented in 3D?
