Best 3D movie or implementation of 3D in a movie.

Recommended Posts

One of several 3D Blurays I bought while JB had a 20% off sale a month or so ago .

Spiderman Homecoming 3D..........I thought this would be a nothing movie, as in, just another by numbers, comic-book movie.

WRONG.....This Spiderman movie is actually GOOD.....Not only that, the 3D version I would have to rank in the top 10 best 3D movies to own......it really is that good, and it's really worth getting the 3D version if you can

I'd agree the 3D is well done, particularly considering it like many other recent 3D movies was produced using a computerised post conversion process rather than stereo camera live footage. (The source 2D live footage was shot in 2016 and 2017.) One could expect that the extensive CGI would have been rendered using two virtual cameras.

 

I found the 3D strength in Spider-man: Homecoming a little exaggerated at times, but not excessively so, and this caters for the people who prefer their 3D to err on the side of being strong. I thought the faces of the actors were well done in 3D (unlike some other post-converted movies).

Not everyone would find the plot, focusing as it does on the lives of teenage children, and in particular the 15 year-old Spider-man, riveting. I myself found the pace of the movie too slow.  However it's a feel-good movie; with a strong ending (some interesting plot twists).

Another really enjoyable 3d immersive experience is Need For Speed. Especially on a projector. The sound is awesome too. I don't get the hate on the movie.

For a very good 3D version, I can recommend Aquaman.

JB had it on sale a day early, so I bought it and have just finished watching it.

Hardly any ghosting even in the busiest of scenes, and the 3D effect is well done without going overboard.

 

As for the movie itself, well it's a Warner Bros DC comic movie, which means it's overly long, has pointless and repeated fights against the same enemies, a plot with holes like Swiss cheese, continuity errors a plenty, and every cliche you would have ever seen over multiple movies all bundled into this one.

In other words, ideal for the 10 - 18 year audience over the Easter Holidays.

Expect a sequel soon.

Agreed with the above ,,brain salad movie, but I liked that it didn't take itself to seriously.

Did it have the variable aspect ratio, for the imax scenes? I noticed on a pic of the back cover it says it did for 3D. I've heard for other countries, it isn't variable imax ratio.

NO variable aspect ratio with this title, well at least on the AUS 3D version of this disc, I don't know about the standard Bluray or 4K version.

Good thing too, a pointless and annoying thing to happen mid movie

To be honest, I'm one of the people that like them.

 

I do wish though that if they have it, they have it as an OPTION. I remember when Anchor Bay did the Reanimator DVD back in the day, they had a trick they did for variable aspect ratio, and used a subtitle stream that was just black bars to mask the full screen. They could easily do the same with any movie with variable aspect ratio. Either that, or for the imax scenes, just have separate video files for the two aspect ratios and branch.

 

That way everyone can get what they like!

The 'IF THEY' bit might be the saving grace of variable aspect ratios suddenly appearing on screen.

I'm not a fan because of them momentarily screwing up a perfectly good picture when viewing via a PJ

Recommendations are subjective and I find it difficult to divorce 3D effects from the plot if I am not enthusiastic about the movie. Additionally, I have a LG 65e6p and I think it is the best 3D TV possible. No 3D movies are in 4K because it would exceed the current 18 GBPS data limit.

 

1. I urge you to reconsider Gravity.
2. Mad Max: Fury Road. Some prefer the UltraHD version but I disagree.
3. Life of Pi
4. Try Fantastic Beasts a re-imagining of the Potter series.
5. If you like the comic book movies I suggest Spider-man Homecoming but this is not my favorite genre. Perhaps you would be happier with Dr. Strange or Guardians of the Galaxy or Pacific Rim, etc
6. If you would like to see classic literature in 3D, I suggest Gatsby because it immersed me in the Roaring 20's or Heart of the Sea which takes you into the back story of Moby Dick.
