3D can be very distracting. Star Trek Into Darkness was an example. I did take the glasses home and were surprised to find they worked with my LG 3D TV.
But, then again, someone posted 30 minutes of Avatar in 3D on Youtube. It was miraculous. I've never seen it in 3D before.

My main problem with 3D videos up until this day is the so called "paper figurine" effect. Or at least I'd like to call that.

I was late night shopping a couple of hours ago, and took another look at the LG 3D TV. Certain stuff is with specific depth perception, no doubt. But the background is still a flat image, or sometimes figures in the foreground.

I've seen that with AVATAR 3D (you can find trailers on YT where you can the "crosseye" technique - which strains the eyes, but works for presentation purposes). Here you can clearly see the embosed effect around actors, everything else is like 16bit games Parallax Scrolling Effect:

Another thing that is concerning me a bit with the recent Godzilla trailers... maybe they don't want to blow this or something but... people want to see Godzilla use his atomatic ray. Yet we only saw Godzilla scream, mostly frontal, no other attacks, no fights, just stomping around. Granted, makes it look more menacing. But I'd like to know if they pull if off right. Unlike what we saw with... er... Zilla.

It depends on what you watch. I have an LG 3D TV. It has 2D to 3D upconvert. This is where you get that 'cut out' effect.
It also does real 3D, but it's passive 3D like in the movie theaters.
But you have to have a 3D source, like a 3D blu ray player and movie.

Seen both ways. Will maybe even see "Winter Soldier" tonight in "RealD 3D" - both is not really great, and more gimmick than it's worth IMO. THe sad thing is, this is the new way to milk movie goers. Additonal to the so called "blockbuster fees" and "overlength" (pretty much everything that is longer than 90min, then it goes in 30min steps).

This BS trend started sometime end of the 90ies and is kept on since now in Germany.

Don't ask me why, I don't know. It's just sh*t behavior. Especially if you have to pay "Blockbuster TAX" and on top of that, up to 2 bucks extra for a 121min movie! And then they fade out the credits since there obviously is "nothing added" anymore.

Yeah right... with about 50% of movies today, there is always a bonus scene. Ruined by both the cinema and the visitors that are like "movie's over... gotta pee!".

That's nuts. Though they do charge extra for 3D movies here. I think $3.00.

Ah funk it, won't see "Winter Soldier" tonight, would be too late to get back home from the "late night screening" (even though the cinema would be empty), though maybe I drive over to another cinema to pick up some 3D glasses and convert them into 2D ones.

If they sell them separately...
This way I can still enjoy the movie in May without possible headaches - prepared in advance, and I can even test it in stores (since LG TV's also use RealD typish technology). :tu:

So the first monster is properly revealed. It's codenamed MUTO, but it's actual name is supposed to be "Hokmuto".

http://godzilla.wikia.com/wiki/Muto

There is sound snipped of the roar of this monster, a link to a Toy Gallery, and a screenshot from movie footage.


To be honest... I still don't know what to think of that monster. It reminds me a bit too much of Pacific Rim mixed with Cloverfield - but massively simplyfied (think Neon Genesis Evangelion). At least from looks of the toy line.

Speaking of the toy line... Godzilla toys are available now as well (mostly Bandai). Including one Godzilla with Atomic Ray. But... it looks darn stupid. So do most of the figures. Looks like the best figurines might be resin models (if they are similar to the concept figurines) - and they sure as hell won't be cheap.




Oh, and to those that rather prefer Godzilla movies with suits... maybe this is up your alley:

MOAR FOOTAGE!

Dammit, release it already!


Already finished modding two RealD 3D glasses to 2D. So let the RAGE begin on the big screen.

A KVR meetup at a Godzilla screening might definitely be fun. Though I dunno how many Berlin KVRians are also "Kaiju movie fans". :hihi:


Oh and... just found this particular gem:

I sure hope so - I want to see the already announced "Destroy all Monsters" type sequel - unless it's goofy like the old Showa Era. :hihi:

If this movie is really a success, maybe Hollywood finally realizes, that there are more talented "low profile" writers and filmmakers.


And yes, the BD is pretty much bought at this point. Let's just hope that the original Godzilla gets another BD release treatment - but please not the US cut, but the original cut (as it was bundled with "Final Wars").

Sometimes I feel, that Minilla is definitely the "Dan Hibiki" in the Godzilla universe. :hihi:
