I was thinking the boulder and mine ride, but several scenes could be great.

Cavardossi, you might be interpreting the responses backward. I am seeing that 7 out of 10 responders feel your post ADDs to the discussion. Those are not negative votes.

In any case, some people may simply misinterpret the question, so don't try to analyze the outcome too much.
With open public forums like this, it's hard to imagine what some might be thinking when they submit a vote.

I see four out of five people have voted no on your post, too. That's what you get for being entirely reasonable and rational.

Cavardossi,
Wayne's posting may add to the discussion, but is not following the thread's original topic.
The same can be said for this positng and my prior posting.
The votes reflect that all three of us are now off topic.

I actually watched Event Horizon last weekend for the first time since I saw it in theaters originally. Much better than I remember it, and I did think several times that it would look awesome in 3D.

Event Horizon would look great in 3D. Other movies that I would like to see done in 3D...

Robocop
Aliens
Resident Evil: Extinction
Jurassic Park
Tron
Back to the Future

I am also looking forward to seeing the Star Wars films in 3D starting next summer with Episode 1!

The image of the flying cow from twister just popped in my head due to your comment. Could be worth it to see Twister in 3D. There are moments in that film that could work.

Your opinion is ok, but there have been several movies that I have been amazed and happy to be seeing it in 3D. Tangled and Hugo are just a couple. Of course some movies really don't need it, or don't benefit from it, but on the whole I have enjoyed the movies I have seen in 3D. Having said that, Tangled and Hugo are movies that have enough story to hold up on their own, but the 3D just adds something extra that I really loved. I like the "Wow" factor. I can't wait for Beauty and the Beast and Titanic in 3D next year.

Thought I would revisit this thread with the news that Fox is going to start converting catalog titles to 3D and releasing them on 3D Blu-ray Disc later this year.

The first title to be converted for BD is....

I, Robot.

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8564

How many of the tltles we listed are Fox properties?

I would love to see a 3D conversion of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" So many opportunities for greatly enhaced visual efffects.

Just a little add on to my post from December. Beauty and the Beast was good, but not great in 3D. I was hoping they would include the song "Human Again" since it has been added to several versions of the DVD/Blu Ray versions. It just seemed missing by not including it. Anyway, the 3D didn't really add that much to Beauty and the Beast. Still a wonderful movie, but just ok in 3D. However... Titanic was magnificant in 3D! The depth of the picture was so incredible. I actually got a little dizzy feeling in a couple of the scenes. I haven't had the opportunity to see it on the IMAX screen, but just in the regular theater it was just so great. Not only getting to see it on the big screen after all these years, but to experience it in 3D just made me so happy. I'm ready for Jurassic Park next year!

Mr. Nut,

You could argue the same about color... or sound... or even the picture itself. The radio dramas of the mid 20th century are evidence of that. And books, of course. We all know there are good stories without sound or picture, so why have movies at all?

Could you imagine if 3D movies had decent stories? They might make as much money as... well, Avatar!

We are not arguing the merits of 3D here, just having fun with a "What if?" style question about 3D. And with this news about "I, Robot", this particular "What if" is becoming a reality for some.

Maybe some people would like to see Tara in 3D. Or mob weddings. Or Robert Shaw getting eaten by a shark. Of course 3D would not add to the drama of Roy Sheider taking those last shots at Bruce, but why not be able to see Roy on the sinking Orca in 3D? What would it hurt? We already know Jaws has a great story, so let's watch it in 3D now. We were stuck having to watch it cropped on 4:3 tvs for almost 30 years (unless you had laserdisc, then 20 years). Now that we can watch it on better equipment, lets have fun with it.

I will throw the Star Trek reboot into my list. That might happen with the 3D sequel coming soon.

It's pretty rare when there is a reissue of a movie so if it is in 3D or not I'm happy. I love seeing an old(er) movie in the theater that I don't care either way. I am a fan of 3D though.

Can't believe no one mentioned this, but The Ring! Imagine the girl crawling out of your TV screen.

The Movie Nut....."Do not like 3D. Sorry, just a gimmick". They said the same thing when they added recorded sound or color to movies..its just a gimmick. I can understand why some people don't enjoy 3D films due to vision problems or ones that actually have Stereoblindness, if done right can add so much to a movie. 3D is here to stay...a list of some of the films to be released in 3D or IMAX 3D this summer...

Prometheus (my most anticipated film of the summer, even more then The Dark Knight Rises)
Men In Black 3
Brave
Madagascar 3
The Avengers

A movie I would love to see post converted ...."The Descent"

Grand Prix
The Battle of Britain
The Blue Max

All the epic films like Lawrence of Arabia, Cleopatra, Spartacus, Quo Vadis, Gone with the Wind, The Gladiator,etc. would benefit from 3D conversion, I think.
