And as a natural follow-up, here's a selection of shots from Steven Quale's Final Destination 5. One of the better entries in the series, it has what I (and many others) find to be a more proper balance of black humor with genuine suspense. Unlike the previous film, to fully enjoy this one you should have at least seen the first movie in the franchise, though it's not totally necessary.

Director Steven Quale is a longtime James Cameron collaborator, including second-unit director and visual effects supervisor on Avatar, and cinematographer Brian Pearson was fresh off My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry - so it's no surprise the native 3D is of very high quality. Depth and pop-outs abound and issues with alignment are present but negligible.

PLEASE NOTE - SCREENSHOTS ARE FROM ENTIRE FILM AND LATER ONES MAY CONTAIN MINOR SPOILERS! I've done by best to avoid anything that gives too much away. But let's be honest, if you've seen any of these movies you pretty much know how things turn out.

Also note since these are compressed JPGs they are not indicative of video quality; they're meant to offer samples of the 3D effect.

FD5 looks good for the 3D. Medium, high medium 3D from those shots. Thanks.
The Final Destination 3D (starts with the stock car race) has some solid 3D also, with high medium to strong 3D much of the way.

i agree, the pop out shots look cool, they were intended for 3d, i just wished they increased the depth in the movie but the pop out shots do make up for it.

Stupid question:
Are 3D blurays regular 1080p? I ask because every time I play a 3D movie, despite of pop-ups or depth, the picture looks 5 times better than watching the same movie in bluray. Now, I am not referring to the 3D effects themselves, but the overall resolution, almost like a UHD quality

It's two 1080p images (technically one full one, and one specially-encoded partial stream with only the occlusion/differences between eyes). On an active setup like your projector, they're displayed in quick sequence one right after the other, so you're only ever seeing a 1080p picture, but some people theorize since your brain combines the images to see the depth, it might also combine details from both to make it look sharper.

Though this probably wouldn't work for conversions where, instead of two completely original images, it's essentially the same set of pixels shifted around (with new ones to fill in occluded areas), so there's no different/extra detail on the same objects between eye views.

^^^Very good observation. By the way I noticed that 3D titles on VuDu costs just the same as the 3D bluray discs...How is VuDu expecting to sell at $29.99 when we can pay the same or less for the disc format? You dont even get DTS H audio when you stream, so who can possible spend 30 bucks on 3D movies on VuDu?

For the first one in a while comes Drive Angry, the grindhouse action flick flop that proudly proclaimed on its posters that, not only was it in 3D, it was SHOT in 3D, as a rebuttal to the early wave of horribly-reviewed conversions like Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender.

Shot by the same director-cinematographer-stereographer team as 2009's My Bloody Valentine remake, it shares a lot of characteristics with the earlier film; varied levels of depth from shallow to quite strong with a lot of very nice, far-reaching pop-outs. Unfortunately it also retains the earlier feature's sporadic issues with mild to moderate misalignment and retinal rivalry. Sometimes one eye's view is also out of focus (see shots 18 and 20 for examples). Still overall a very fun ride in 3D.

SPECIAL NOTE - To make things easier for people who want to view these shots on their 3D TVs or projectors, I've included an attached ZIP file with all 20 shots in properly-squeezed, half-resolution format. To view them, open them in fullscreen on your source (TV picture viewer, computer or player connected to said TV or projector, etc.) and select the "over-under," "top-bottom," or "above-below" configuration for 3D display. The result should be a single, properly proportioned 3D image with a 1920x540 per eye resolution.

PLEASE NOTE - SCREENSHOTS ARE FROM ENTIRE FILM AND LATER ONES MAY CONTAIN MINOR SPOILERS! I've done by best to avoid anything that gives too much away.

My Bloody Valentine is my favorite of the two although I agree that their movie and 3D quality is very similar. I'd love to see more Pulp 3D features from Lussier. They aren't the most polished-looking 3D, but they aren't afraid to use (mostly) wide parallax and strong pop-outs. Fun films.

And while we're on the topic of over-the-top action flops, here's Pete Travis' Dredd. A fan favorite with a huge cult following, and also an absolutely massive box office bomb. Mostly shot in native 3D, it has a wide range of depth from "virtually none" to "yeah, pretty deepish." Typical native shooting artifacts like minor misalignment and retinal rivalry are present, though more distracting, IMO, is the very noisy image as a result of the low-light shooting. There are also 84 converted shots done by Prime Focus, which are unfortunately pretty badly-done (see the close-up of Dredd's boot below for an example).

Maybe slightly off topic, but any of you ever experienced 3D on a OLED display (passive 3D, of course)?
A friend of mine has LG OLED 3D and UHD display and he tells me that 3D on his OLED unit looks glorious, making even HDR look irrelevant

One of the few films in the brief fad of converting classics to 3D, Jurassic Park is a really good example. Stereo D did some excellent work on Spielberg's iconic blockbuster, creating a typically very deep presentation with a few pop-outs to boot. Conversion errors are present but mostly negligible. A must-own unless you hate the film.

Floppity flop flop flop. That might as well be the soundtrack to Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, a massive box office bomb everyone saw coming that made just under $145 million worldwide against a $140 million production budget and undisclosed marketing costs. There's racial controversy, an online meltdown from the director in response to bad reviews, and just a whole lot of ugly stuff in general. The film, though, is certainly pretty - save for a surprising amount of substandard VFX.

Gods of Egypt is a conversion but the cinematography clearly seems to have been done with 3D in mind, and while things stay behind the screen most of the time - with a few notable pop-out exceptions and a fair bit of off-screen particle effects - the movie is generally pretty deep. Shaping, especially on human faces, is below-par in general, and there are some pretty obvious conversion errors (look at the left side of the swamp screenshot below), but the third dimension definitely adds to the experience.

Why would a movie of such outstanding cinematography flop? What factors played a role in the poor performance at the box office?

Well, there were no bankable stars (aside from debatably Gerard Butler as the villain), it was marketed heavily on director Alex Proyas' name even though he hadn't had a big hit in over a decade, the idea of a sci-fi infused ancient Egypt was a turnoff for a lot of people (much mockery was directed at Ra's boat being a spaceship of sorts, for example), there was a large controversy over most of the cast being white despite the setting, the critics' reviews were awful, audience response was below average at best... and frankly it's not a good film. An entertaining one, depending on your state of mind, but it definitely has the feel of an old B-movie given an enormous budget for no reason.
