I'm not lookung to start another debate about pop-out vs. natrual depth and immersion. There IS a place for pop-out movies right along with total immersion films - some of my purchases are of the latter type and I thoroughly enjoy those also. But, some of the titles where I was expecting a lot of 3-D eye candy (think RESIDENT EVIL, AFTERLIFE and AMAZING SPIDERMAN and GHOST RIDER, SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE) fell a bit short. Yes, there was the right depth but the "shocks" werer missing. Then I saw FINAL DESTINATION 3-D. This was the one that starts with the race car wreck and ends with the exploding theatre. So, I have a couple of questions......#1 - was this the first of the F.D. films? Was it originally shot in 3-D or is it a conversion (if. it is a conversion, it is damn good). #2 - I've seen at least one more F.D. available in 3-D (possibly number 5)...has anyone seen it in 3-D and are the in-your-face effects as good as the one I've seen? Lasty, #3 - What other live action 3-D titles have pop-out effects as good a (or even better than) FINAL DESTINATION? Thanks, and don't flame me for liking pop-outs along with immersion.
The one with the cars is number 4, it was the first one in 3D and it was shot in 3D.

Number 5 has great 3D with quite a good range of popouts, it was also shot it 3D.

For live action popouts I would go for Drive Angry and as someone else said My Bloody Valentine. Same director did both and both native 3D.

Spy Kids 3/Shark Double pack. Very cheap title. Great popouts but probably 2 of the worst films I've ever endured in my life. The popouts are non stop and very intense if you can stand to watch the drivel......

Cane Toads is a documentary but is shot natively and has great 3D with toads jumping out of the screen at you all the time (*shudders) and is a great little whacky movie as well.

Yogi Bear is live action with CGI animals.

Journey 1 as listed above, although it is also a pretty terrible movie.

For animation NOTHING beats Madagascar 3 or Sammys Adventures 1 or 2. 2 is the better film if you have an objection to 'greenie' material, but they are the 2 best titles on the market for intense 3D.

The OP lists Ghost Rider and Spiderman as examples of eye candy but to me they are vastly overrated movies and didn't think the 3D was very good in those movies at all. Which is the problem when it comes to 3D, everybody seems to have different preferences.

I have the FD movies that are in 3D and found them to have pretty awesome 3D. I highly recommend them.

I couldn't agree more. I love the Sammy movies but I bought Madagascar with reservations, but I was blown away by the movie and the 3D.

Actually he said he was EXPECTING them to be eye candy and was disappointed... which seems to be the general consensus for those movies. Amazing Spider-Man had some good stuff (the backflip out of the screen in the climax is great) but most of it was very shallow. Ghost Rider was a technically competent conversion for the most part but really didn't live up to its potential.

The only thing I loathe about M3 is I end up with that stupid bloody Circus Afro song stuck in my head for about a week every time I watch it.

I read that wrong because RE: Afterlife is an amazing 3D title.

Just wish to correct one of the common mistake of the use of the word "immersion". Immersion is about a person's state of absorption into a movie due to confluence of factors such as story, lighting, sound. Do not confuse it with the word "depth" as in 3D depth, which is where things seem farther and deeper, like looking out through a window.

In other words, a person can be immersed in a movie filled with more 3D pop-outs than depth (e.g., Journey to the the Center of the Earth, Final Destination 4). The opposite is also true, where depths and little pop-outs can also be immersive in experience (e.g., Avatar, Monster House).

I'm beginning to wonder how good my 3D is on my Panny.

I've yet to see something come right to my face including the beginning of FINAL DESTINATION 5.

Does all that broken glass during the opening credits come close to anyones face ?

If you want real pop, you have to go with the imax nature movies. Im a child of the 80s and none of the 3d movies today compare to those. 3d movies today are really conservative. Regardless I really enjoy my 3d collection.
most wanted blus: the Legend of 1900, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Sheena Queen of the Jungle, Farinelli, any Phish, the Last Castle, Clan of the Cavebear, Silver Bullet, Beastmaster, Sword and the Sorcerer. Samsung pn51f8500 plasma active 3d, Vizio 42" LCD passive 3d, Panasonic bdt310, PS3 slim 60 gb, Denon AVR 590, Polk Audio rm6750, Sennhieser hd 280 pro.

Agree as well. The 3D IMAX blus are real eye candy for 3D. Only drawback is that they are not long enough.

I really want to get my hands on the proper 3D blu of this. It's annoying as in the UK they have only released it in anaglyph 3D! It seems the US release is my best bet, can anyone confirm if there was only ever a proper stereo 3D release of this in America, or did they also release an anaglyph version? I need to be sure about getting the proper stereo release.

And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home."

You mean "the final Destination" or Part 4 right? ... Well I have 4 and 5 in proper 3D... no anaglyph.

Both Final Destinations have strong 3D and are great additions to any collection. I think both are really underrated 3D gems.

Part 4 is The Final Destination isn't it? Oh cool, so there's no anaglyph US version of the 4th movie?

I don't know that there is no anaglyph version but I have a proper 3DBD version... I don't think there is an anaglyph version (on blu)

There is an anaglyph version here in the states also http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Fi...-Blu-ray/5169/
I have part 4 in my collection as the popouts were great and the story quite entertaining, part 5 while also having great popouts, I just thought that the acting was to poor and the characters to annoying, so I sold it.

There are proper 3d's for 4 & 5 as mentioned, as well as an anaglyph version of 4.

I tried to watch the anaglyph version, here's the thing - FD actually had some pretty good 3d and because of that, the anaglyph looked horrid, at least in my opinion. The seperation between perspectives was pretty heavy at times and caused obnoxious ghosting with the magenta / green.
Want to manually convert 2d to 3d yourself and accurately - not with an automated software? Check out my topic and tutorial here.
