I watched The Protector 2



I'd seen the film before in 2D and had a bad time with it, not because it's a mess in terms of plot and structure (which it is), not because the RZA's acting is embarrassingly poor (it is) but because there's a massive amount of cheap CGI and greenscreening. But with the magic of 3D this wasn't so much of a problem. Yes, I could still spot all the blatant fakery but positioning it within a 3D space really helped sell it, it somehow became far more real, almost like an animated feature. Not all of it is saved by the 3D - the greenscreen inserts in a fight near the end still made me cringe - but the difference is like night and day, I could not ever contemplate even attempting to watch the film in 2D ever again - it looks so bad in 2D that it only makes any kind of visual sense in 3D.

Apart from helping sell the ropey CGI, the 3D also provides a pleasing natural depth and features frequent entertaining pop-outs, so it really sucks hard that the film was not released in 3D in the UK or Australia (or region free in the US). I don't think it even got a 2D blu ray release in the UK.

For that reason I can't really comment on the quality of the blu ray because I didn't watch it on blu ray, I had to resort to other means. If there was an English-friendly Region B/free 3D release available though, I'd buy it without a second thought.

My latest blu rays are Captain Harlock, Goosebumps and Comin' At Ya!, I'm so glad those are region free on blu ray...

Just finished watching Comin' At Ya!



I can't say anything that hasn't already been said really, it's not one of the best Italian westerns I've seen (and I've seen dozens) but it is easily one of the best 3D movies ever made, even with all its technical flaws.

Right from the outset the film delivers pop-out after pop-out just as a 3D movie should, perhaps too much for some people, but not for me. 3D so extreme that I even went cross-eyed once or twice. I didn't even get much ghosting, it was an impressive presentation despite the frequent dirt. Still, it wasn't as distracting as it was in Dragonfly Squadron, probably because of the colour. Anyway, I love extreme 3D and I love spaghetti westerns so all my boxes were ticked... except one.

The "Noir" tinkering is horribly jarring outside of the flashback which, to be fair, just about gets away with it. Thankfully it's only limited to a few scenes and a brief shot here and there but there are a couple of scenes late in the movie that really should have been left alone and fundamentally the original version ought to have been included on the disc. I wonder what George Lucas would make of it...

I am behing in my reviews so her are some short and sweet ones of recently watched movies:

Comin' At Ya!: This movie should be in every self respecting 3D fan's collection. Any and every thing you can image is thrown at you over the course of this movie. The story-line is poor and the cast is uninteresting. But did I mention the 3D? Damn!

Movie - **1/2 out of *****
3D - ***** out of ***** (maybe even a 6 out of 5 is you know what I mean)



Kung Fu Panda: Great movie that played better at home than when I saw it at the theater years ago. A lot of fun with a lot of heart. The 3D is superb in this release. One of the most beautiful animated films ever.

Movie - ****1/2 out of *****
3D - ***** out of *****




Kung Fu Panda 2: Not a good one to watch so closely to the first release. The formula is a little tired and the story mildly interesting. Not as many laughs and just all around blah compared to the first one. Not a bad movie but not a great one either. I found it a little dull and tedious. The 3D is still excellent though.

Movie - *** put of *****
3D - ****1/2 out of *****




Priest - An interesting new take on vampires with both an uninteresting story and cast. Sad because it looks quite nice and has some good, fresh ideas. The 3D is pretty sweet but the movie is so dark that at times you will strain to see it.

Movie - **1/2 out of *****
3D - **** out of *****

I watched 'Life In The Wet Zone', the first episode of Kingdom Of Plants 3D



You can't go wrong with David Attenborough, this is much like the other 3D productions he's done for Sky. Natural depth and pop-out, nothing extreme that draws attention to itself (I could always do with more pop-out), but beautifully detailed close-up 3D photography nonetheless.

And I finally got The Walk delivered so that's probably up next. Latest pre-orders include Get Squirrely, from Germany (http://www.amazon.de/Voll-auf-die-Nu...ywords=nuss+3d)

Last night I watched The Walk



I thought the 3D conversion was excellent, this is a film where depth matters and it didn't disappoint on that front - I didn't feel sick or anything but admit that one very brief shot gave me a bit of vertigo.

I could have done with some more pop-out (as always), but this was a very natural-looking conversion nonetheless, significantly enhancing the viewing experience, I'd probably say it impressed me as much as San Andreas in that respect.

Today I watched Goosebumps which unfortunately wasn't quite as impressive, though I have to say I think Danny Elfman's score is his best in ages.



The film is slow to get going and so is the 3D. There's nothing notable about it initially - zero pop out and a fairly shallow depth, like a shoe box turned on its side. If the whole film had stayed like that the 3D conversion would have been a really pointless exercise. But when the monsters are let loose the 3D loosens up a bit, with some mild pop outs (my favourite being gnomes in the dishwasher) and nicely layered shots showing more depth generally, occasionally pulling scenery out in front of the screen. Smoke and particle effects also always look good in 3D and that's no exception here.

I really wish the 3D had been stronger but I suppose they didn't want to scare the kids with it - the most extreme it gets is a werewolf in your face but apart from that one strong but brief moment the 3D stays very conservative, a real missed opportunity given the subject matter of the film. I can see how for some people there won't be much benefit at all to watching the film in 3D, but I'd seen it in 2D before and it was much better in 3D.
