The thing about black and white film is that we don't see in black in white with our daily vision (most people). In that way, apart from keeping the classic version intact, a separate color version would give the films more appeal to new audiences. I didn't know Lucas was opposed to colorization of the classics, though he adjusts his own films since he owns all of the rights.

Black and White to color, 2D to 3D, a double whammy for those opposed to tinkering with the classics, even though the original versions remain intact elsewhere.

The main concern, aside from the 3D strength, would be if the resolution is muddy or clear. 14.99 on amazon I see. That's a nice price.

I love the Stooges and wouldn't mind seeing them in 3D but in color it seems odd. I still an interested in checking this disc out though just to see how it was done. If I remember correctly sony released some of the stooges shorts in color a while back and they looked good yet kind of strange as we are so used to seeing them in black and white

I'd like The Wooden Soilders in color cause of the toys and cause I use to watch this at Christmas time when I was a kid. I'd like the movie in 3D too. Also, every time I see the title of the movie somewhere I immediately start playing that music that's played during the battle in my head.

As for the Stooges and Rascals, I'd rather them in b&w and 3D.

Posted this link to the dedicated March of the Wooden Soldiers 3D thread yesterday.
Amazon.com now has a single disc 3D version of March of the Wooden Soldiers (3D Blu-Ray) for $14.99 to be released on October 30, 2012 and the Combo pack 3D version is released Nov 6.

The review is up for The Three Stooges in 3D and Jeffrey Kauffman gives the 3D post-conversion a 4.0 out of 5!
Quote:
The 3D post-conversion on the other hand is largely excellent and inarguably well done. Legend was one of the first labels devoted to 3D, and their expertise with this technology is readily apparent in all of these shorts. There's been exceptional care devoted to these pieces, with a really nice layering of depth (note for example in Disorder in the Court how there are clearly defined layers of the court observers depending on where they're sitting, rather than just simply foreground and background objects). A number of the sight gags are increased due to this dimensionality.

It's not the same (B/W cinematography was overlit enough to separate the lights from the darks, not 500 shades of gray), any more than colorized is the same as color--
Having seen Legend's colorized Stooges on the Sony disks, however, I can say it isn't bad. At least, it's not THE issue you should be shaking fists about, compared to the cheesy pseudo-3D claim-jumping.

(Although there is the theory that B/W comedy is funnier than color comedy, for some reason, because it's "less real". Try turning the color down on any other comedy and see if it isn't so.)

Checked out the 3D in "The Three Stooges In 3D" an I am amazed how good the 3D is rendered.
IMO, the best 3D conversion I've experienced yet, both in stereoscopic placement and depth of field.

This high-definition restoration uses a colorization process that seems to be state of the art in a quality level that I have never seen before and I'm really surprised what can now be accomplished.
IMO, it now looks as good as if it was filmed with native color film.

Yes, for a direct conversion of 2D to 3D with no CGI to reference, March and Stooges 3D both look good in 3D with nice, basic layering of 3D.

On the disc, they refer to themselves as "3D Classics", with a team of 40+ stereo artists.

The 3D for 3 Stooges 3D and March of the Wooden Soldiers 3D looks better for 3D layers than 3D Legends' conversion of Smurfs 3D, which was generally weak except for some impressive pop outs here and there.

As I mentioned in another thread, the separation of the double image is barely noticeable, but when you put the 3D glasses back on, the 3D layer pop is definitely there.

It can't compare to amazing 3D as in Madagascar 3 3D, but for a direct 3D conversion, what's here is good for 14.99 each. And it's a better set of conversions than I Robot 3D I'll say.

Default Stupid question about Three Stooges Blu-ray 3D

Before I unseal this disc-Does this disc contain a non 3D blu-ray version? I do not have a blu-ray 3D player, just a blu-ray player. I bought it assuming it was a regular blu-ray that had 3D effects not requiring special hardware. Thanks for your help.

Anyone have a system with a 2D-only component that can answer if "The Three Stooges in 3D" will play in 2D?

I have confirmed that the Blu-ray 3D will play in 2D with the 3D-output turned-off in "video-setup" on an Oppo 3D Blu-ray player, but that doesn't guarantee the disc will play in 2D on a 2D dedicated system; Sorry I don't have the specific components for a valid test.

Verified that "March Of The Wooden Soldiers in 3D" is region-free.

As an aside, I'd also really love to hear what George Lucas thinks about this. I recall that he opposed the colorization of old Three Stooges shorts (considering what he did to Star Wars, I find this kind of funny), so I can't imagine he'd appreciate 3-D conversions of them (again, considering what's been done to Star Wars... still kinda funny ).
I feel much the same. It's unnecessary, but so long as they're releasing the original along with the conversion, I have no real objection.

It is a bit of a shame that it's worth spending all this money on a conversion, when there doesn't seem to have been any release of the Three Stooges shorts that were actually filmed in 3D.

I really liked the Three Stooges conversions - their actual real 3D shorts were apparently briefly released on the Playstation Network for $30 each so they do exist in 3D...
