[QUOTE=cecilbdemodded;19047204]Is that theater digital or the older style? I have an all digital RealD theater near here, the movies all have looked awesome so far. I also have an older theater near here that was 'upgraded' to RealD, and that theater's 3d looks okay for 3d effect, but it's noticeably darker overall with more artifacts onscreen(like dirt, hairs, etc). You know, like you're looking an old print or something. The all digital theater has absolutely no artifacts, no flaws in the picture.[/QUOTE] The theater isn't that old. 4 or 5 years old. It is run by Rave Motion Pictures and the screen is digital.
this movie was amazing in realD
Noticing that all the people passing off 3D as a gimmick are people that have yet to see the movie. Going to see it in IMAX 3D myself in a few days, had my tickets prebooked for about a week. Can't beat that screen.
Bahhh, stupid blizzard :[ goin on monday I guess
[QUOTE=daumantas100;19008080]4D it's where it's at.[/QUOTE] Yeah, you can watch a 2 hour movie and only have to sit in the theatre for 15 seconds
The only thing I care about is if any of them work for people blind in one eye.
Did anybody else notice the Jurassic Park dinosaur noises? I can't remember but either that Hammerhead rhino thing or the predator has the famous T-Rex roar. The horses use the velociraptor sound.
I watched it in 3D and my head use to hurt but this is diffrent. It was awsome movie and more awsome in 3D.
Just saw the movie last night, and I must say it was really good. Saw it in realD and It looked amazing (even with our shitty seats that were way up close). None of the 3D was abused, all of it was just effective in immersing you in what was happening. Very few thing flew up into your face, and the stuff that did was cool, not ridiculous (no flying axes or fire, etc) and I really enjoyed it. The plot was pretty good for a special effects whorefest, and the special effects were really impeccable. Oh and the darkness from the tinted glasses was completely negligible.

[QUOTE=Socram;19059450] No I disagree it was succinct and lasted like 7 seconds...[/QUOTE] seriously, it was very tasteful... and I watched it in 3D Imax last night, and we got there late and got the worst seats, in the very front row and to the right. Even so, it was incredible. Excellent movie watching experience.
I just returned from a screening using the Dolby3D system. I saw it in Real3D yesterday and I have to say that the Dolby3D is definitely better. The brightness issues really bothered me with the Real3D but none of that was there with the Dolby.
[QUOTE=Da_Arwin;19047293]I just got back from seeing it in RealD. It looked pretty great. The darkness was kind of annoying but bearable. It's a great movie and I most likely will be seeing it again real soon.

But seriouslly, grow up.
I watched it yesterday. It owned!

Sitting in the theater right now, Dolby 3D.
[QUOTE=Biotoxsin;19080339]Sitting in the theater right now, Dolby 3D.[/QUOTE] Sweet, let us know how it looks :cool:
So what's the difference between 4D and this 3D?
It's so stupid how the whole image of the diractor of the titanic, and the most expensive film ever made affected people. This movie is cool, it was fun to watch it, but damn, it wasn't "AMAZING" and definitely not the best movie ever made.
Back from RealD, happy to report the movie is facking amazing and the 3D is not hard on the eyes. The 3D definitely adds more depth to the whole experience without taking itself too seriously; there's no gimmicky sequences where stuff is randomly thrown at the audience to show off the 3D. However there was some micro-stuttering unfortunately during fast paced scenes mainly due to the fact the movie was shot at 24 frames per second.
Managed to see it in 3D this morning, fucking amazing, it's not done over the top, but it gives a better sense of depth, it makes certain elements more realistic and believable, I loved it. [sp] The scenes where they have the holographic screens were fucking awesome[/sp]
We have tickets reserved for Imax, but I'm pretty sure it's digital. I was seven story craziness! Does anyone who lives in L.A. know if the Bridge has Imax regular?
Just fyi the film wasn't filmed with IMAX cameras so its just upscaled from the "standard def" footage, apart from the sound you're really not missing much seeing it on a normal sized screen. Anyone with glasses, as long as you don't have fucking huge ones the reald glasses at least should fit over them just fine. I am not so sure about IMAX ones because their design is unique to each cinema franchise.
I have a RealD cinema near me (at the marina), might go there to watch it.
We have an IMAX about 8 miles from here, going to go see it soon. They use polarized lenses, so no color distortion.
I am going to go see it in 3D soon. Let's hope it's good.

I watched it in 2D and wished I could have watched it in 3D. But a movie that long would just give me a headache after a while.
[QUOTE=Guided;19122838]I watched it in 2D and wished I could have watched it in 3D. But a movie that long would just give me a headache after a while.[/QUOTE] The 3Ds not overdone, it's simply there to add true distance between objects in the foreground and objects in the background. Nothing ever "pops" out at the audience in a cheesy fashion so it's not really headache inducing at all.
I just watched it in RealD, I love the sense of depth and distance it gave you, though I think they should have made some objects pop out of the screen, but not so often it would induce headaches.
Anyone see it in Dolby3D??
