I agree porntrooper, i dont see the point in Cool breeze just coming in this thread to slag of 3D blu rays when he doesnt have a 3d tv or a 3d blu ray player, or has any experience of 3d blu rays. I think you've made your point cool breeze! Time to move on mate, stick to the Mark Kermode thread in musings like porntrooper says, you can slate away till your heart is content there! If you've got nothing more to add other than '3d is shit' i dont see the point in even visiting this thread.

Glad you've been enjoying your 3D blus porntrooper, i totally agree on prometheus. I highly recommend getting Transformers 3, the 3D is great on that. Avatar is out tomorrow too, although i might not pick that up for a little while as ive seen the movie a lot of times (although never in 3D! lol) so it's a little low on my list of priorities, although obviously i hear nothing but good things about the 3D

My favourite film for 3d is tangled, I was really impressed by creature from the black lagoon though. As a fan of 3d I understand it's only got a niech appeal, people slag of 3d but they don't relize that it should complement 2d not replace it.

Not got a 3D player or a 3D tv, but just thought I'd pop in to say that those who haven't bought Prometheus yet, your patience has paid off.

I've never used Sainsbury's before so very chuffed, 13.49 for the 3D blu ray seems to be a bit of a bargain so soon after release.

Watched Wrath of the Titans 3D tonight. It looked amazing, a really impressive conversion. Lots of great pop out FX abd really nice depth and sense of space and layers. Highly recommended! It helps that im a sucker for these kinds of movies

I tested out a couple of scenes in Prometheus and it was a bit of a mixed bag. The landscapes did look really good, but things like the holographs infront of people were distracting as hell.

The best 3D I've seen is still the nature and wildlife clips on Sony's Internet content.

There's been some debate on the quality of the 3D transfer (when compared to the 2D). It's said to be lacking.

The 3D effect on the Blu is really really good, and I didn't have any issues with the sharpness of the image, but then I know my tv doesn't play 3D at the same resolution as it's standard 2D output, so any loss in detail I would've put down to that. Certainly looking at the screens on that link, there looks a loss of detail in the 3D image, but in motion I would be hard pushed to spot the difference. I've watced Prometheus twice in 3D at home and once in 2D, all three times it looked superb and it's what I've been using to show off my tv to family/friends this week. I'd class both as reference quality. 2D looks stunning and sharp and doesn't have the minor loss of light the 3D version has. The 3D version is, in my opinon, the best showcase of 3D presentation there is and everyone I've shown it to was blown away. Yea, there is a slight loss of light, and yea based on the screens a loss of detail too, but I never noticed it at all and it is reference quality in both versions.

I guess the holographs thing is your personal preference. The holographs look really awesome in 3D IMO

Well Prometheus has certainly worked out how to make 3D more desireable put an extra disc with 7 HOURS OF EXTRAS ON THE FLIPPIN 3D VERSION!

Agree, they're both stunning. However, I think there was a couple of moments where detail looked less on the 3D image than the 2D, parts of the opening DNA sequence and the Isle of Sky scenes were the ones I noticed most as I didnt see as much detail in the darker rock on the 3D version. It's possible it's due to the picture adjustment for light on 3D? I dunno, and anyway it's a tiny tiny difference, really negligible, and I'd be amazed if youre average viewer of both could tell any difference between the two. I only noticed it in a couple of scenes where I was trying to get the best settings on the 3D image and was going back and forth between 3D and 2D and analysing certain parts of the picture in certain scenes to get things just right. There is also a difference in the resolution output between 3D and 2D on my TV, which is soemthign I understand quite common on 3D tv's, and would probably account for it. Either way, on a moving image, it's really not noticeable and both versions are, for me, reference quality.

My I, Robot 3D got posted yesterday. Hope to get it Saturday and will post my thoughts then. The brief demo of it on the Prometheus Blu ray looked great to my eyes, especially considering only about 3 people worked on this using newly developed tech (apparently)

I'm not sure where I stand with I, robot being converted to 3d. It seems like such an unlikely choice. What films do you want/expect to be converted.

Mine would be...

Jurassic park
Vertigo
The birds
The matrix

Heck i'll take whatever they want to convert, providing its done well. Bear in mind that it's Fox doing this, so it would have to be a wishlist of Fox titles.

Bought a new 46 inch LED (I have consider 1080p, thankfully), which just happens to have 3D upon it. So far I've only watched Hugo on it, and it was sexy as hell. Better than the cinema for me. Got Cloudy...Meatballs, Coraline, Monster House and Polar Express to watch, just disappointed I missed out on the 14 3D Prometheus...

Both of those have been available for quite a while.

The double set with both in is labelled incorrectly as having 6 discs, when it only has 2 discs. It is bare bones with just the 3D discs. I know because i bought it, then returned it as it did not contain what it said it did.

Hugo does indeed look incredible in 3D. Easily one of my favourites. Sounds like you have a lot of animated movies. The best animated movie in terms of 3D is A Turtle's Tale: Sammys Adventures. Unbelievably amazing 3D!

Amazon are currently selling Coraline 3D for 4.25. Thats the proper 3D blu ray and not the red/blue glasses one.

Thanks for the heads up. WIll probably hold off, as the bairn (who would be the one to watch it) doesn't like 3D at the moment, but I'm sure it'll be dirt cheap in future.

Watched I Robot 3D, have to say a waste of time. The films okay but the 3D didn't do a lot for me, there was the odd moment that looked okay but most of the time I hardly noticed it. A couple of times I took the glasses off and it looked normal. This is very poor compared to the titanic 3D conversion which was amazing.

I agree with you stuntgoat. The 3D was very disappointing and Fox need to sort themselves out if they plan on post converting more of their back catalogue for 3D blu ray releases. Obviously the Titanic conversion is a different kettle of fish with Cameron's guidance. It is my understanding that only 3 people were involved in the I, Robot conversion. With new computer software doing the lions share of the technical work. Just goes to show how badly that panned out.

There are some OK 3D moments in the last half hour if i recall.

Got The Lorax for christmas and that was amazing, fantastic 3D and a really lovely film.
