It looks pretty good on the advert on Sky3d. No doubt, it will be on at Christmas.
I watched toy story 3 in 3d today and it was stunning, very bright and colourful with amazing texturing and zero cross talk.
I have cars 2 3d and sharks 3d to watch still but i think ive been converted to a 3d fan and am lookin forward to buyin more discs.
Pirates of the carribean has always been a fave of mine so pirates 4 in 3d is definitely my next purchase even though i do already have the regular BR version.
+1. I saw it a few weeks ago.
Pirates 4 is great in 3D, mostly depth but there are a few pop-out moments, namely Blackbeard's sword and his Skeletal hand at the very end
Saw it on Sky 3d last week. Good depth, not much pop-out. How I like 3d!!
Has anyone watched 'wonders of the solar system/universe' in 3d yet? I loved it on the beeb in 2d so i have high hopes for 3d.
I feel that I have wasted money purchasing a 3d tv. To be honest, I feel that most of the content available on the sky 3d channel, is pretty poor, and there are very few blu-ray's that have the 'wow' factor. The lg demo is fantastic, with great ' pop out', but I have yet to see that kind of quality replicated on a blu-ray. I suppose it is nice to have it, but the content is just not there.
I've not been bored but for me it's been a expensive merry go round mixed with a bag of good and rubbish things.
Got the tv i want but it' too small, got the tv i want coming that is apparently in my view the best passive 3dtv released to date if you count out the bells and whistles and it's lg's old tech but i'll be answer this question once and for all in a few days time!
And if it's not the expense bugging me it's messing around with games to make them work in 3d, there's no doubt about it the 3d can be a ball ache butit is worth it 1000x's over for some of us.
I spose if your lacking content you could feel underwhelmed with a 3dtv.
Your only seeing a portion of what 3d has to offer, like pc, console games, more so pc games as most games work in 3d, 3d gaming is much more fun than a 3d film as you have the awsomeness of 3d gaming aswell as options to change depth and convergence, but you are correct without another source of 3d which is'nt films there's not much around and your 3dtv could sit there unused.
Have you got a link to this.
I didn't realise this was out in 3D
The only one i know of is the "7 wonders of the solar system" in 3D
Aren't they the same thing?
It's OK in 3D, nothing special.
Had my 3d tv for a few months now & was underwhelmed by lack of content. But more & more is coming out now & after seeng Hugo, the future looks bright for 3d
Yes you're right i misread it unfortunately.
I recently got the regular 2d BR set for my b/day and that looks pretty stunning so i would recomend that if you dont have it.
I may get the other 3d set but from what ive heard its not much of a set though bein only 1 disc.
is hugo any good then?
As i said in another thread, it seems to have polarised movie goers but the ones who loved it, really loved it. The 3d is stunning & i hope moviemakers use it as a benchmark for future 3d production.
I still think its early days with 3D and film-makers are getting more experienced and are getting to know more and more what works, what doesn't and what type of 3D people like etc. Hugo could be a benchmark film for 3D and hopefully similar quality 3D films will follow in time. As paying customers though I feel we need to vote with our feet if we want 3D standards to improve. That means being critical of poorly shot 3D films that have a shallow depth and even going to the extremes of boycotting future new movies that are conversions and not shot in native 3D. There are no excuses with the technology available. All future 3D films should be shot in native 3D or shouldn't, legally, be called a 3D movie.
Have to Say Hugo has me very tempted to take the plunge into the 3D market, but frankly everything around it seems so confused, it all just comes across like a cold hard money grab. So i'm going to sit tight for the time being.
Completlely agree. Since getting my 3d panel a few months ago i have seen so many crap conversions that simply should not constitute as 3d. It seems to be ruining the 3d experience for many people. Imagine if a poor conversion such as clash is somebody's first experience of 3d, it's gonna put them off. I want to build my collection around proper 3d as i'm lovin it as far as i am concerned when it's done properly. Peoples first experience of 3d must be wow!! or it will just die as a result of all the rubbish that's going around.u
A turtles tale has just been delivered through my door. Now there's a 3d movie!!
hugoagogo69, snap. I ordered A Turtle's Tale a couple of days ago and so should get it soon. I wouldn't normally watch an animation about a Turtle but there's just so much limited good 3D content around at the moment that I couldn't resist it. I only want it so I can watch some more decent 3D material in 1080p on my new 3D TV. So far I only own the following Blu-ray 3Ds...Sanctum, Tangled, Monster House, A Turtle's Tale, Animals United and Yogi Bear
There is plenty of content .... at least I have plenty but I have been underwhelmed by them all other than the LG clip on my other thread. It is genuine wow factor.
TBH I dont see them going much further with 3D than what we have now and its all been very much a money spinner for the TV manufacturers. A feature to inject some energy into their sales lines.
Would I tell someone to get a 3DTV now ? nope .... certainly not. If its a TV you like and is priced appropriately then get it. DO NOT GET IT FOR 3D !!!
I got a 3D TV solely because I have the full Sky package and was missing out on loads of 'free' 3D.
I never get bored, because there's new stuff every week, whether it's live sport, films, documentaries, music concerts etc.
I needed a new TV and my 47" LG was only about a hundred quid more than a regular set.
So for me 3d was a no brainer and worth every penny and more.

im still loving 3d got 19 movies so far i buy most of mine as the ppv on sky is 6.99 for 10 pound more i get to own it
Plus Sky is only half the resolution being SBS!
so whats are blu-rays? are they not sbs?
I just wait for another three months and get them as part of my regular subscription.
Certainly not, Blu-Rays use Frame Packing To supply Full HD3D
So if I'm correct, Sky HD halves the resolution to 1080i, then Sky 3d halves it again to 960x1080, then my LG passive halves it again.
I must be watching a very bad picture (which I'm not). I bet most people watching my 47" from nine feet would be hard pressed to see a significant difference between Blu-Ray on an active shutter and Sky 3d on a passive.
Captain America which was PPV last week, will be coming to non-PPV Sky3d on April 20th.
I'd say you're correct on all counts there lol
I dont think its as simple as that.. I wouldn't call 1080i half resolution or should I say half the picture quality.. the 1080 lines are all still there just not all at the same time, a 1080i picture should just appear very slightly softer.
