Yeah, I thought "Titanic" had a really good 3-D presentation.
Saw this 3D last night and thought the 3D added very little. Girlfriend agreed, so you can't just accuse ME of being a crank!
What were you expecting of the 3-D?
I found the “Titanic” and “Wizard of Oz” 3D conversions to be just about the best 3D possible, and really indistinguishable from movies filmed with 3D cameras. These in my estimation were far better than some of the recent films.
Oh yes we can!
From the crankiest crank around, that's a compliment!
My girlfriend and I agreed that the 3D added little, but we disagreed on other technical merits. She liked the colorization - I hated it. She liked the added dialogue (from the looped soldiers) and sound effects - I didn't...
Me Cranky?? Surely you jest!
We saw it in 3D, and I loved all the technical improvements. The 3D was modest. I tried taking off the glasses and there was not that much difference. That is my experience almost always with “Real3D”. I usually find the 3D much better at home. It’s too bad we won’t get to experience it.
You're both cranky and a crank. You're multitalented!
Hey Kettle! It’s me Colin the pot. You’re black!
Maybe, but at least my dogs like me!
One of my renters got the UK 2d disk. The footage looks terrible to me compared to the theatrical experience. Anyone else seen it yet? The faces bubble around like bad photoshop liquify effects and it’s is so completely out of focus through the entire film...
No 3D no sale.
Thank you for your helpful comment
You know, there probably is not a more vociferous advocate of 3D than me, but I would not hesitate to buy the flat Blu ray of this title if that is all that is available. I found the 3D in the theatre barely noticeable. I took off my glasses a few times and did not see much difference most of the time. To me, the astonishing technical achievement was the clean up of the footage and the colour and sound.
I haven't seen the disc, but that's how the film appeared to me in my theatrical screening. Perhaps the theater you saw it playing at was showing it on a lower resolution projector or slightly out of focus. My showing was pretty sharply focused and it was easy for me to discern all of the digital artifacts that resulted from the extreme digital manipulation that the original footage had undergone. It doesn't bother me from an archival point of view because I know the original, untouched black & white footage was properly restored and archived. But yes, when Jackson's film is seen with proper clarity, the digital manipulation is evident. I'm not sure that the technology is there to do that much zooming/cropping/reframing/degraining on such low quality sources without getting some kind of telltale sign that the footage has been touched.
