Thumbs down

I think & hope its going to be a fad.

OK some of the cartoons look good, but live action films still look like flat cardboard cutouts but layered on different backgrounds to me.

Not sure if this is down to me being one in 100(or so) people who wont be able to see the benefit or that's just the way it is

Anyway up shot for me is that it still does not look like real life, in fact if anything looks even more unrealistic that watching a normal film does (seriously if someone was 3 foot away and pointed there finger at you, would you even think of ducking or getting out of the way? Yet watching a £D film.....) so Im left wondering what all the fuss is about while others willing go and pay an extra £4odd per cinema ticket for the "experience".

After seeing the Avatar 16min preview, I'm convinced of 3D. I don't want to watch that film on any other medium and will happily pay the extra to experience it the way it's meant to be seen. I hope someone digs this thread up in 5 years time and I hope I'm right when I say 3D is here to stay!

You say that now, but if in 5 years time you wear glasses, you'll be glad you were wrong

Well 3D has been around for ice ages now, it's obviously a fad or it would have taken off and been in our homes rather a few years ago. If anything it ruins films more than makes them better.

Digital is the future, not 3D.

It'll be a fad. Watched Beowulf in IMAX 3D a couple of years ago and while I was amazed at the crisp 3D effects the thrill eventually wore off and I fell asleep during the middle of the film.

I'd seen a few IMAX films in the past and liked them alot. Its certainly something that you need a decent size screen for. I thought Ghosts of the Abyss was very good for 3D.

I saw Beowulf last year and thought it was very impressive from a 3D point of view. I then saw Ice Ag 3 and Final Destination recently and was underwhelmed. Final Destination looked like it was two layers of flat objects where some elements popped out.

I was extremely impressed by the Avatar trailer though, the 3D felt highly layered with objects slowly blending further out.

I'm guessing some films in 3D use a simple technique for 3D!

Can I ask what next week's lotto numbers are oh wise one? Don't be so narrow minded. I think it's safe to say that there are only a small minority of people in the world who are in the know who can predict how well something is going to do in the future, and even then it's just a calculated prediction. 3D is the next logical step in user-interfacing. Wouldn't it be good to load up your ultra high-def webcam and see your wife/husband/family half way around the world in 3D? So real it feels like they are right in front of you? That's just the tip of the ice berg... which will also be awesome in 3D when they finished converting Titanic in a couple of years

Much as I enjoy 3D movies, I'm not prepared to pay the extra £2.20 per ticket that my local Cineworld charges any more. If two of us go, it costs £20 just for the tickets, that's without petrol, parking etc....

I'll be going to the cinema even less than I do now because of 3D

It might catch on if you can see someone else's wife...



..and that's not entirely a joke...

I haven't seen any 3D movies at the cinema, none have made me want to see them yet, but I don't think it would add much to most movies. But did people say that about colour?

From what I've seen of Avatar I think it would be better with no dimensions rather than 3, but then again I'm not exactly the target demographic...

Digital is the future? Digital what? Everything's digital. Digital is now. I've had HD for over a year and I'm bored with it already.

Sorry HD's not good enough for you. How big's your (7.1 sound 8.2, naturally) dedicated home cinema proj screen, 120"+?

Then again, you could always try for being in the front of the queue for a 4k system.

Fad at cinema and home but it is being taken seriously at home with 3D TV's and projectors. Dual stream 1080p signal requiring HDMI 1.4 capabilty and new hardware.
