The 3d started off pretty good, especially when the entire team was still together and walking through the jungle, it got less and less as the movie went along. I think they ran out of budget or something because towards the end the 3d was almost non existent.
still, if you're going to watch xmen anyway it's a good purchase
Fox has been using JVC to make these 3D movies, and the process is largely automated, so "running out of budget at the end" makes no sense whatsoever. It's been awhile since I've seen the movie, but didn't it take place over a day or two, with the final confrontation between Schwarzenegger and Predator taking place at night? Night scenes are harder to get in 3D (aren't they?). Plus Predator is a pretty old movie to begin with, which I'd imagine would make things even more difficult
While we are on the topic, I saw one of your typical "3D is dead 4K is the future" 3D bashfests article yesterday. Because, you know, people can't afford 3D TV's and despise wearing glasses indoors, but everyone can afford a house large enough to house the massive TV's needed to even notice the change between 1080 and 4K, and because obviously these 4K TV's won't support 3D "just because......"
Anyways, the article said that said Fox was no longer producing anymore of these 3D conversions. The writer was extremely biased and I can't find any other source to back up what he said, does anyone know if this is true? I was never interested in Jumper and I still haven't seen Predator yet, but I really liked the 3D conversion of I Robot, and while I typically don't go in for these re-releases, for how cheap these have been I'd hate to see them stop now.
So yeah, does anybody know anything about this or have a link they'd mind sharing? I can't find anything either way. I know they cancelled Independence Day 3D but I don't think they were using JVC to do that to begin with.
