Agreed... like batman and robin(you know who they are) going around forum only defending their purchase, they dont even post anything about a 3D movie or something, don't matter the technology 3D is 3D period.

A lot of members post their thoughts on 3d movies in the section dedicated to the country where they live. That's what I do, I post up my opinions of 3d movies I have watched in the "Aussie/Kiwi last Blu-ray bought/watched thread" and I know other Australian and New Zealand members do the same. I personally don't really like posting anything in the "3D blu-ray movies" sub forum area of the 3d section, as I feel too many stupid immature comments are made in there, and members put down others members for liking particular 3d movies that they didn't. IMO the "3d blu-ray movies" section of this website gets just as bad as the PS3 section at times.

What in haven makes you think I was alluding to you? ..
But is really sad to know the way you feel about the 3D movie forum.

I didn't think you were talking about me at all . In my previous post I was just replying to the part of your comment I highlighted because I felt that you were being a little dismissive about what some members contribute to this website. Just because a member doesn't comment about 3d movies in the "3d movie section" doesn't mean that they don't post up their opinions on 3d movies they have watched in other areas of this website. As for my comments about not liking to visit the "3d blu-ray movies" section, I was just being honest about the way I feel about it.

Fair enough....... I'm. Just so in love with 3D movies that Im not even buying 2D movie as before Any more , I know its wrong but I can't help the feeling of watching a movie in 3 dimensions, and after reading all opinions in the Forums I realized that everybody perceive 3D in different ways.

Not to cause a war, I love 3D both active and passive. I own a Sony LX-900 active set and a new LG LW55 6500 passive.
I make 3D movies and must say, that passive is able to display depth and popout much, much better than any active set there is with very little ghosting if any... All active sets I have tested when I used extreme popout or depth displayed horrible crosstalk, but on my passive it's looked perfect.
I use Edius 3D to add parallax, then Vegas for editing. I have tested pretty much all 3D TV's there are with some of my extreme 3D I have made and only passive can display it perfectly with NO ghosting.

I filmed some scenery using my 3D cam, a base extender and edited it to have extreme depth and active TV's couldn't handle it at all. Passive had no problem and the depth was so amazing it blew me away.

I am in the process of making some more 3D movies now and actually gonna make one for active TV's and one extreme for passive since active can't handle it.

By the way, the best 3D TV in 2011 was the Panasonic VT20 followed by the Sony LX-900 series (I watched the shootout live over net)

It's good that you are so passionate about 3d, but on the other hand you are limiting yourself by focusing mainly on 3d titles, especially when most 3d titles are just average/below average movies script wise. Don't get me wrong, I own approximately 15-20 3d blu-rays which I enjoy, but even though I like those movies, I wouldn't sacrifice watching some of the greatest movies ever made in 2d (Godfather, Pulp Fuction, Saving Private Ryan, Shawshank Redemption, Terminator 2, etc etc), for ANY 3d title which has been released so far.

I think its each to their own Cev tbh. If everyone's tastes were the same then these forums wouldn't exist in the way they do.

At the moment I am just like Banibale, I am going through a phase where very little floats my boat at the moment where I just want to watch 3D. Will I grow out of it? I don't know, and don't really care .. it's fun right now and I am enjoying it. I would never want to push it down anyone's throat .. if they want to read about what I write on forums .. fine, if they don't .. then they can move on. I am sure what all of us write on these forums will have some interest to some readers .. certainly not all!

But right now, I WOULD sacrifice those titles you mentioned in favour of 3D movies. Sometimes I feel I need to escape from the likes of those titles once in a while.

Not everything is meant for 3D. Like CEVOLUTION, many, many films are meant to be in 2D. Even if the option to film in 3D was available, some films should not use it. Memento is one of my favorite films, but it would lose something if it was in 3D. I absolutely love 3D as well, but I know when it fits and when it doesn't. This doesn't keep me from buying either format, I still buy both. It would be dumb to limit yourself to 3D only because there just aren't enough "top of the line" films on the format. There may be a hundred films or so, but only a handful worth watching.

Oh I agree, I would never limit myself to 3D at all. I just feel that of most of the back catalogue stuff going around at the moment, 3D is more interesting to me right now. I still collect all my Arrow and Shameless releases .. no less than I did before. But looking at new stuff coming out, it's 3D that excites me. Also, any conversions to 3D can go suck for all I care. They weren't meant for that format in the first place so they should be left alone, not just pumped out by greedy studios.

I wasn't just referring to the 5 movies I mentioned as examples in my previous post, I was talking about the hundreds of great 2d releases from the past and present. When it comes to films with better scripts, obviously there are far more available in 2d. All I was saying, is I feel anyone who just watches mainly 3d films is greatly limiting themselves from what's out there, as there is hardly any movies in the 3d format that I would call above average. So far most 3d movies are just for mindless entertainment, not many of them really require you to think too hard. To be honest 3d does not make me interested in a particular movie anymore than 2d does, if I feel a movie doesn't look the greatest then I'm not just going to run out and buy it just because it's in 3d.

I remember when I was 12 years old (which was 18 years ago), going on a 3d ride at WB movie world on Australia's Gold Coast. Now when I was that age it was easy to be attracted to 3d just for the sake of it, but as an adult I find it a little bit immature just to like a movie based on pop out and the 3d effects alone.

Whenever someone says that they only just like a movie because of the 3d effects and nothing else, it always makes me think of this


Like they get that mesmerised by 3d it turns them into a slobbering brain dead zombie who is easily entertained for 2 hours.

Default Ghosting / crosstalk - here's a thought....

If you deal with ghosting/crosstalk somewhat frequently on 3d blurays:

1) It's amazing how you can still enjoy/appreciate 3d at all. I sure as hell wouldn't. It should be unacceptable. I have 38ish 3d blus and most everything worth owning in the 3d category, spent only $900 on my tv (and use a ps3), and I don't deal with it, ever.

(2) Being unacceptable as it is, you might want to seriously consider selling your gear while it can still fetch a decent price.

This is pretty subjective...

Does it happen? Yes...A lot? Not so much. Is it worth my time getting upset?

Nope...

I enjoy 3D content for what it is. It's still early tech so it still needs time to iron out the kinks...

Congrats in spending that much on a set? I don't really see what you're getting at...
