Just wanted to post some impressions of the upcoming 3-D release of Arch Oboler's The Bubble, courtesy of Bob Furmanek's 3-D Film Archive and coming to Blu-ray 3D in 2014 via Kino Classics.Bob invited me to preview a check disc of the film and it was quite a treat. The Archives' technical director, Greg Kintz, has done shot by shot 3D correction of the original SpaceVision photography and the results are nothing short of stunning. As I described to Bob, it was one of the "smoothest" 3D Blu-ray presentations I've ever seen. Each shot blended perfectly and fit in precisely with the preceding and incoming shots. Virtually no eyestrain anywhere. I understand the original camera negatives were used for the HD transfer and they needed significant color correction also. I'm hoping Bob can post before and after scans to demonstrate the work that went into this transfer. Greg also painstakingly erased all the splice lines from every edit, if he hadn't done that extra work the film's 2.35 aspect ratio would have needed to be over-cropped by an unacceptable amount to hide them.And for those who desire off-screen effects (in the current parlance, "popout"), this film has them. In spades. Including one of the greatest single off-screen effects I've ever witnessed, which must be seen to be believed. The movie is an intriguing science fiction tale told and performed with sincerity. No, it's not "2001" or "Forbidden Planet" but it's not trying to be. I can't imagine any fan of 3D would be disappointed in this presentation when Kino Classics releases it later this year.
