Would love to see a top spec 3-D conversion of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The star-gate sequence alone would be worth it, but to see those majestic shots of the various craft would be tremendous! big grin


I'd pay good money to see a proper conversion, but it even looks spectacular on LG's instant conversion mode...


If 2001 got the 3D conversion, then PLANET OF THE APES would have to get it too. It's only right, THE two science fiction film classics from 1968.

The new sequel, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, will be in 3D next year. If it's a big enough hit, maybe Fox will do a 3D conversion of the original just for BD, but I wouldn't hold my breath. I wonder what the opening crash sequence in PLANET would be like in 3D?

GORGO-59/61

Now THAT would be worth seeing.....in a 3D double bill with, Them!....?

I finally caught Titanic in 3D today....I must be honest, I personally have little time for that film...but there's no denying the quality of the conversion....If Mr Cameron Sir wanted to apply the same measures to The Abyss and Terminator 2 I would certainly be in the queue...particularly for the former...

The other day I also got passed a copy of the 3D The Running Man Blu...long time fan of the film anyway, but not a fan of the conversion...little or no depth in about 95% of the movie, sadly...

....but, sticking with Arnie...anyone out there that would also like to see Verhoeven's Total Recall given the 3D treatment?

I didn't realise Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was coming in 3D, but that suits me...and yes, Planet.... would be good to see converted (as would, I have to say, Burton's version).


I wonder if the vast Krell underground complex would gain anything from the process . . .

Indeed!! I think a lot of that film would benefit, personally...

Yup yup....I wouldn't be surprised of someone somewhere wasn't already working on this...

Certainly there are some films I wouldn't mind seeing in 3D but honestly most modern 3D films fall flat to me. The 3D effects that work seem to be so fleeting and temporary I don't think it is worth it. You pay extra to see like 5 or 10 little things that "work" in 3D and the rest of the movie has tons of stuff that looks like it was intended to pop out or whatever but simply doesn't.

Yeah - it does run hot and cold.....when it's good it can be startling, awe-inspiring, beautiful...but when it's bad, well...

But there are some good modern films that have excellent 3D in them...

My list (so far) - copied and pasted from another thread:

Good 3D (for me): Captain America, Bait, Avengers, Green Lantern, Avatar, Amazing Spider-Man, Jurassic Park, Life of Pi, Tangled, Clash of the Titans, Transformers 3, Jackass 3D, Prometheus, Dredd, Saw 3D, Piranha 3D, TRON: Legacy, Despicable Me, Top Gun, Man of Steel, and Star Trek Into Darkness, Titanic

Bad 3D (for me): Thor, Iron Man 3, Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter, Sanctum, Wrath of the Titans, Three Musketeers, Shark Night, Piranha 3DD, The Running Man, Oz The Great & Powerful

That's the tally so far...not a judgement of the quality of the films, just my opinion of the use of 3D in those films.

I know what you mean. The last Transformers movie was just a bad film but dang it had some amazing 3D in it. One of the best I have seen in a while.

It was announced last year that Independence Day would be re-released, this time with a 3D conversion, for July 4th Weekend this year....but it was cancelled...no idea why....shame - yes, I think it would work well!

Exactly (and I have added that to my list above)...similarly, Thor is a decent flick, but the 3D is flat and forgettable (for me).

Ben Hur - wow - that would be a sight in 3D....count me in!

I was just wondering how cool it would be to see David Lynch's Dune in 3D...quick google just in case, and it appears it's already been done? Here -> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dune-Real-3D-Blu_Ray-Cinema/dp/B00F7NFF9Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1382178988&sr=1-1&keywords=dune+3d

Anyone got experience of this version? Any good?

ALTERED STATES-80- That would be even more of a trip.

Certainly!! I'd pay to see that...

One that strikes me that might be cool to see in 3D is "Predator"....?

Well, they actually announced at San Diego ComicCon this year that they're working on a 3D Predator conversion.


...and it is being released over here on December 16th...that's part of my Xmas list sorted!!

I was kind of hoping they'd do a 3D conversion on MARY POPPINS for its 50th. Alas, no.

Watching Predator 3D as I type...gotta say people, the conversion is outstanding...so far...
