It might be me getting so used to 3D that at times the effects no longer appear so awe inspiring. Some were great, especially toward the climax, however, was it that overall while the depth was natural in many ways it appeared limited in this flick?
Thanks. When the 3D doesn't continue to keep me impressed as with strong 3D, it's usually because they're either filming the 3D more conservatively during those shots or converting it with more mild 3D, so it appears less impactful compared to stronger 3D shots. Sometimes it's a subtle decline in 3D strength from the more exciting action scenes to the less eventful story scenes, versus a film that has consistently strong 3D layers.
I can't say anything about this one yet, though the 3D preview in the theaters looked medium.

Their website stated that no store within 250 miles had this in stock. But on a whim, I stopped at a Best Buy that I drove by. There was only one copy left and the slipcover was torn in the back about half way up. I did ask a clerk to see if there were any others that were not torn. He checked in the back room and spent about 10 minutes looking through the racks for another copy since his device indicated there were two available. Never found any. Obviously, since it was the last remaining copy I walked out with it. I can tape the slip cover...at that price I can't complain. At least it had a slipcover. Who knows if future pressings will.

Region locking is something NO consumer EVER wants. Only bad guys like Lionsgate, E1 etc region lock by default (in the US it's Shout Factory, Olive and Kino heading up that particular hall of shame
To be fair, Shout, Olive, and KIno releases are licensed and they are only allowed to release their titles in the contracted areas.

At the risk of going off topic and flogging a dead horse, I feel that these companies COULD release more films region free, they just don't make any effort to. No attempt to negotiate better contracts, nothing. There's no law stating that you have to region lock a film to release it in a contracted area.

After all, Kino released some of the 3D Film Archive's films region free (their forthcoming release of The Stewardesses is region free) so it's not the case that EVERYTHING has to be locked. Olive also released Dragonfly Squadron region free.

But if it wasn't for the 3D Film Archive asking for these to be released region free then I bet that they would have been instinctively locked by default...

I snagged a copy at Best Buy for $10 because my husband is a big Tarzan fan and loved this movie, but I was hoping to get the 3D version so maybe I would enjoy it more.

Sadly, I have to agree with those who said the 3D is on the conservative side. There are clearly moments where shots were framed for depth and others where there are supposed to be pop outs, but the depth just isn't strong enough for them to have the desired effect. It makes me wonder again about whether directors are ever involved in the 3D conversion process...

The movie was just OK.

Region free would be great.
As you probably have heard, the rights owners/studios/licensors are approached by licensees that want exclusive sales rights for their area, and to get those rights and the contract money paid, they demand that it be locked for other regions so they have exclusive sales in their region and country. I wish it didn't resort to that, but that would explain part of why we keep seeing region locked movies. If the rights owners could land a great contract deal that allowed for all regions, many of them would, but by limiting it to certain regions, they probably also expand their license sales and prospects. Oh well.

Well if you read the quote from the editor I posted higher up on this page you'll see that no, the director David Yates was not around during the post production on this movie as he was busy filming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

I rewatched this on 3D blu ray yesterday after my IMAX disappointment and you know what, I really enjoyed it. A lot of the problems I had with the movie the first time I saw it are still there. Margot Robbie's character is horribly written and has absolutely excruciating dialogue throughout and her accent and performance just doesn't seem to fit the era the movie is set in...

It definitely feels like there was a longer, better cut of the movie and that it got hacked down quite a bit...

"Interesting. I saw it with David Yates in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago, and he said, ďItís more of a movie now than a film.Ē And I know what he meant. What he meant was itís become more two-dimensional... the journey the movieís taken is actually a lot of scenes, a lot of the layering of drama has been taken out of it, and you pretty much go from A to B pretty quickly.

Anyway the big drawback's are Robbie, Waltz's very average villain, CGI and editing.

That aside this is a rollicking adventure fantasy movie with some exciting and well staged action, large scale, a good sense of adventure and nice 3D. I love these kinds of movies and I guess I was expecting a lot more than what we got but to be honest, in retrospect what we got is very entertaining and I really loved rewatching it last night.

The 3D comes across so much better at home (I was very critical of the 3D in the IMAX). I don't know whether it's just me or whether it really does look vastly improved on blu ray but there are loads of really nice 3D shots, a few fun pop outs (the ostrich head, Tarzan swinging towards the screen in the train scene, the beads from the villain's necklace popping out towards camera to name three) and good depth throughout. I am much more pleased with this movie second time around.
I have watched it twice now. I agree with much of what you say. I think there was a better movie there, but it was left in the cutting/editing room. The CGI is passable...i.e. no complaints. But I found the muted/drab color palette wanting. Maybe artistically it fits the dreary London and the dark canopied forest scenes. Robbie's dialog was poorly written, but that's not her fault, and besides... she's too beautiful to criticize. Waltz is typed casted and needs to break out of this character. Surprisingly, I thought Sam Jackson did a good job -- he wasn't playing...Sam Jackson.

But in spite of the criticisms above, I found the movie very entertaining and the 3D adding to it, as did others who viewed it with me. I especially liked his relationship with the apes (and other animals). The 3D (although on brief occasions surprisingly flat) clearly added to the movie's enjoyment with nice depth. The pop-outs helped. I don't think the 2D version would be as fun to watch.

Maybe the low $9.99 price helped influence my overall opinion, but I'm happy to have it in my 3D collection.

Just arrived and the slip is ugly. The printing makes it look like a street corner bootleg.

Gave this a second watch tonight and was surprised how much I enjoyed it this time around. I did not care for it on my first watch when it came out. Also the 3D was in the mild to medium range but it was still very nice in 3D.

Yes I've watched this movie many times now and I really like it. It took a couple of views to grow on me but it's one I watch about twice a year and I always get a kick out of it. The 3D comes across very well at home.

I watched this again yesterday. There's a cracking adventure movie buried in here somewhere, i would love to see the original cut before they hacked it to pieces. There is so much weird editing in this and choppy scenes.

Still a big fan of it though and the 3D, whilst not the strongest, has plenty of beautiful moments to shine.
