CORALINE DVD Will Offer Crappy 3D Experience

by     Posted 5 years, 151 days ago

head1.jpgIn my review of Coraline, I noted that this was the first 3D film that would be worth owning on DVD.  While films like “Beowulf” or “My Bloody Valentine 3D” become worthless without the 3D experience, “Coraline” is such a gorgeous film that viewing it in HD is all that’s really required and since the film was never overly reliant on 3D (although it was always made with Digital 3D in mind), it would certainly be worth a purchase on DVD.

But Universal wants to give you that experience anyway even with the crappy red-blue 3D that everyone hates.  I would really like a filmmaker to stand up and say “My 3D film will not be available for home 3D viewing because that’s not the way I intended it.  I wouldn’t allow my film to be seen in fullscreen and until we have Digital 3D home viewing technology, my film will only be available in 2D”.  I suppose some could make the argument that the red-blue 3D is better than nothing, but after watching films in red-blue 3D, I would say that nothing is definitely better.

Still, “Coraline” is a must-buy for Blu-Ray owners and the two-disc collector’s edition looks pretty great as well.  Check out the list of special features after the jump.

    I think if the true ideal, personally, would be to put the DVD out where you may watch either in 2D or 3D. I’m sure that’s what their 3D will offer, anyway. Have it so it’s ready other than having the proper glasses, then wait for that type of 3D to be more available to home theatres.

    After all, the 2D will be useful – it’s not like all TVs are well suited to 3D, or there will always be enough glasses for everyone, or you’ll be wanting to watch 3D on your iPod.

    I still can’t wait! I loved Coraline. I may have to get the lunch box.

    ACCTUALLY, Coraline will be released NOT with the Red and Blue, but the Purple and Green, which looks practically realD 3D when you put your Coraline 3D glasses over the Purple/Green ones, My Bloody Valentin's 3D DVD was just as good, too

    I agree that the Purple and Green look better than the green and red. Too bad they can’t do the REAL real 3D. I read an article where Selick said that they would have liked to, but hope theater equipment wasn’t up to it. I liked Coraline enough to make a Coraline Doll that you can download for free and make out of paper.

    Has anyone else had the problem with the DVD being too yellow or did we just get a random glitch copy?

    Wanna tip for watching this in “3D” at home? Instead of watching the official 3D version with those horrible glasses, pu t in the 2D version. Then, take a pair of sunglasses (lighter shaded black ones work best) and take out the left lense. Then, when you watch it with the sunglasses on, it creates a mock-3D effect. Works with virtually any moving TV image, actually.
