I'm gonna get kicked for this and probably deserve it, but I figured it's worth asking. After less than two years, my Vizio 3D Blu Ray player is giving me issues--mainly with the tray, which will either not open, not close, or not stay closed to load the film. It takes a bit of time to get it to load almost anything. So, I'm considering getting a new player. The player I was looking at includes one of those 2D to 3D conversion options on it and I'm almost kinda curious as to how well something like that works. I certainly don't expect it to look as good as an actual 3D blu ray of a movie shot in 3D, but does it do anything? I wouldn't use such an option to watch anything like Casablanca in 3D, but I do have an off-air recording of The Moonlighter and (somewhere around here) a copy of Son of Sinbad and I'm wondering if it would give any sort of passable 3D effect. Thoughts?
Qualification to the question: Does such devices produce a conversion that looks like the crap the infamous Australian guy released (for those that know, the so-called "Super Living 3D") or does it look closer to a Hollywood conversion? And if a Hollywood conversion, would you say it's closer to Clash of the Titans or closer to Captain America: The First Avenger?
