Just got back and ..............the wife and daughter loved it, me to be honest i like Sam Raimi's version better. Also if you lads were thinking of going down the 3D route for this one, save your money as it had absolutley no 3D pop to it what so ever. :o
My bro went to see it in 3d and said it was great. Maybe you walked into a 2d viewing lol

Man thats dissapointing  ??? , Did it look well setup ?, To be honest mate i was wondering if the Problem was with Passive 3D but i still remember the first time i saw Avatar at the Cinema !

To be honest i don't think it was, it had the potential fro great 3D with all the CGI but there was just nothing. :(


They specifically shot it in 3D too using the Red Epic 5K cameras, same camera is being used on The Hobbit and was used on Prometheus.

I am wondering if it was the fault of the Cinema, did Prometheus have a feeling of depth to it?

I have read that Prometheus had great depth to it and is right up there with Avatar for it's 3D, never seen it myself though.  I think David's brother enjoyed it and he has info on his site about it.

I want to add that i personally like 3D films with some nice pop out of the screen moments, depth is all well and good but a 3D film without some coming right at ya moments would disappoint me.

I totally agree, I have heard many good comments on Prometheus for Film and 3D. It was Avatar that got me so into this lark in the first place, I went to see it and was expecting it to be rubbish and a Gimmick but right from the off i was like  :o !!, On the journey home i was jibbering like a kiddy school girl (or Boy) and my wife has been sick of my strange AV habits ever since  ;D Lol.

I don't like the Adele song much, maybe it will grow on me, it sounds dreary and doesn't excite me enough, i also wonder if this Bond will be bloated, trailers always put the good parts in to get people to watch the film.

Yep, looking forward to Skyfall... 8)

I saw Taken 2 the other day at the cinema. It was ok... Because of Liam Neeson :P
Just so bloody similar to the first Taken, and therefore quite ever-so predictable.

I'd still recommend seeing it if you've seen the first one, and liked it, though.

The original Taken was superb. :worthy:

Ok we went to the odeon cinema this morning to see Rise of the Gaurdians. Last minute decision so them freebie tickets didnt go to waste and the fact it was showing in the same screen no 8. Funny as me and the wife were the only couple in there without kids  :lol:.

It took me 30 minutes or so to get engrossed into the film as it was a little slow but then picked up, visuals were excellent along with Audio. I feel sure this screen particular projector  has been calibrated since last visit, whites and colours were great.

That's the good over with. Now onto the bad but puzzling. I could not believe the amount of cross talk throughout the film especially darker scenes. This puzzles me as I was under the impression (after owning as well) that passive was literally free from cross talk ??.

We were at isle seat near the back but looking directly ahead on a level plain my eyes were probably just below the bottom of the screen. I don't like having to look up at a screen unless I can recline but then the screen has to be angled down towards me.

I can remember well from my passive 3D tv's that you have to veiw them square on at eye level mid screen otherwise you get cross talk, can this possibly be the cause of the cross talk I was seeing or is it not a requirement to view square on with a passive projector ??.

Also that hedious vertical DSE effect was still present on bright whiter backgrounds which took me right out of the film especially panning shots.

I really wanted to say something before I left but the wife hates it if I complain. I will be emailing odeon again about this but please guys if you know for sure about the veiwing up angle I was talking about could be the cause of the cross talk I will be grateful if you can reply here.

I won't be looking for free tickets this time as I am done with the cinema now, well for 3D anyhow, 3D is much better on my tv at home.

Thanks for any help  :)

I don't think there is any viewing angle issue with passive 3D at the cinema. As far as I'm aware, that only exists because of the underlying LCD issues.

But, it's not true at all that passive is free of crosstalk. Nearly every passive display tech I've seen has featured it.

The dirty screen effect is a big deal for me too. It's caused by high gain screens.

I know on my LCD LGs I had side to side viewing angles were fine for 3D, it was above / below it completely fell apart with crosstalk. If viewed at a good eye level crosstalk was pretty good, any idea how I can find out for sure so I can follow this up with fact not just theory ?.

This DSE effect David, are you saying its the projectors screen at fault not a pj fault ?. Is this common at cinemas ?.

Thanks.
