With the new release of the jurassic park movies in 3D is it just a gimmick 2D to 3D conversion that most new 3D format TVs can do? after all the movie wasnt shot with 3D technology at the time so whats new too offer?

I tend to find that 2D to 3D conversions don't work as well as films shot naturally in 3D. The latter (Avatar, The Hobbit, Sanctum etc.) have a natural feeling of depth, with some projection effects, whereas the former (Conan, Clash/Wrath of the Titans, Piranha 3D) have only depth, but with the layers looking a bit like flat cardboard cut-outs.

The 3-D versions are just a gimmick; after all, a huge portion of the potential audience can't even watch them because of eyesight issues. I wish they'd just drop this silly nonsense and give older classics a good remastering to blu ray instead.

Hearing the news that 3d takings at the cinema are down and in the US espn sport have stopped 3d as they say not enough people are buying into the concept,tv sales arn't as high as they hoped i don't think the majority of us wiil be watching 3d.

I don't know about i Robot but JP is not the sort of awful 2D-3D conversion that TV's do (which is completely pointless IMO.It's never good). Having imported JP 3D on blu ray, not only is the conversion of JP the best conversion I've also puts most "filmed in 3D" films to shame.

The quality and depth of the 3D is superb in every scene. If any director wants to know how to do 3D right ...look no further than the JP conversion.

to be fair i said earlier that they were cashing in, i got the i robot 3d for my birthday & i have to say it is impressive..

depends the jp was remastered in 3d and it is looks great. I robot was just slung out and it looks not so good. so it depends on how they do it. top gun looks great, titanic great, day of the dead, bad.

Do you think it is worth investing in a 3D TV set? I have heard that 3D TVs will soon be obsolete and replaced by 4K TV sets. Is that true?

It's possible, but 3d is ok though. It's really about personal choice. I have had a 3dTV for a while. Since it's also pretty good with 2D it's been a decent investment, though I don't watch 3D much.

Don't get a 3D TV...get a 3D projector. You can get an Optoma HD131xe on Amazon for less than a TV. I get 130" screen size with mine - how much would you pay for a 3D TV with half the screen size? - and the 3D is as good as the cinema. I have that JP conversion - it is a beauty. Also, they did a great job on "Titanic" (although I am not a big fan of the film itself). One of the best films I saw on 3D recently was "House of Wax" 1953); I'd almost say that the use of the 3D effect back then was even better than today's (more depth, more immersive). "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" looks great in 3D too.
