TOP 500 REVIEWERon 25 May 2015
This is an excellent demonstration DVD if you have just bought a new 3D television set. It is standard blu ray format so you just load it up, set your TV to 3D mode and away you go. It is a high quality 3D demonstration DVD containing real DVD film sequences; not a 3D conversion from standard high definition film. As a result the quality is amazing.
It contains a series of short sequences each of which covers a different subject matter. For example there is a great cosmic sequence where you are taken on a journey through space using shots taken from the Hubble telescope. Back on earth there is an excellent surfing sequence and another one under water where the camera moves through fields of coral and shoals of fish etc. The various sequences are all designed to demonstrate the feeling of depth you can get with modern 3D sets. Sometimes you feel like you are looking through a window and other times it seems as if you are falling and/or about to bump into something.
The clarity and apparent depth of the effects is amazing and it is guaranteed to hold your interest right to the end. It is also good value for money; overall it lasts for nearly three hours and it is guaranteed to hold your interest throughout. Adults and children alike will find it really interesting. It goes without saying that you have to have a 3D set or the picture will just look distorted.
The only down side is that once you have watched it you probably won't want to watch it again any time soon. It is not like a really good film that has staying power and you can easily watch it time and time again. This is not really a criticism - it is a standard limitation of any kind of demonstration video etc. I find I go back to it every once in a while to watch one of my favourite sequences and /or to show it to a friend who is maybe thinking of buying a 3D set. I paid about £10 for it on Amazon and I consider it a real bargain at that price.

This is the first 3d title I have bought and this collection has blown me away. The content is varied and not all of it works well but when it does your jaw will hit the floor. Easter Island in 3d looks outstanding as does the American Landscapes. It makes me wish I'd bought a bigger tv.

Well!
This had something like 14 different chapters. A couple 3-D animated shorts; last launch of "Discovery" and Cosmic Journey; 2, different short-
subjects of multiple underwater divers exploring ship wrecks; a time-lapse trip accross America; Easter Island travelogue; Hot air balloons over
The Alps; no-glove/free style mountain climbing in America; "Stereo Bank Highlights of Best 3D[bits and pieces of in-your-face stuff]"; Card &
coin tricks; Fireworks; Around The Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco; "Storm Chaser Surfers"; and 8-minute Who-Done-It?; and some static stuff(photographs) from Paris and the American Civil War.

I have seven, such, discs. This is---by far---the best. Oh! It's a Universal City Studios' production.

Some really well filmed 3D sequences of varying lengths, with a mixed variety of subject matter. Some absolutely brilliant 3D and beautiful scenery above and below water enhanced by my Cinemizer glasses. The Hubble documentary alone made this purchase worthwhile. The 3D effect is stunning and made me feel I was there, watching.

WOW! Highly recommended if you have a 3D TV & Player. This is pure fun & kids will love it too! The content is good too from animation, to short educational films, there is something for everyone no matter the age group. To get the best from this DVD its recommended for a 42" TV or bigger plus view the DVD at night as I think the 3D features are best when its dark. Good value for money too!

A great introduction to 3D shows a wonderful view of the strength of it. Fantastic images of life on earth and space,Hubble like you have never seen it before,a film that you will watch over and over again. I deal for impressing your family and friends.

This is a compilation disc that contains many 3D shortfilms. All of them in stereoscopic 3D (not converted from HD). For me, the highlights are.
- Nuts and Robbers, a shortfilm based on the characters from The Nutjob (recently in the movies)
- Ecodingo, a ride through a sci-fi world with lots of motion and 3D effects
- Cosmic Journey, based on Hubble Space Telescope images from NASA
- Ocean, very pretty underwater stuff
- View in America, a poetic timelapse film with many natural sights
- Stormsurfers, Action 3D with some Australian surfer legends
- Legends of Prohibition, some special effect sequences that look really cool.

Almost 3 hours of content, some of it is a bit 'slow' but to try out your 3DTV, that is a good disc to have.

This is basically a collection of random 3D films, some of which have in-your-face 3D effects. The 3D on some of them isn't too impressive, with slight double imaging and objects in the foreground appearing blurred or in the wrong plane.
I thought the best ones were the first three, two CGI films and one about the universe.

I found a lot of the films boring, as there is no dialogue or narration, and not even any opening titles! And you'd have to pay me to watch the guy doings card tricks again!

Some of the best 3D is in the extras menu, which is a series of 3D still photographs, some contemporary, others taken in black & white in early 20th century (I think) Paris, and in Gettysburg at the time of the American Civil War. These photographs are amazing.

So, overall, worth watching, but not quite the best of.

An interesting video showcasing the possibilities of 3D presentations in a series of short episodes. It is probably mainly of interest to those of us who are interested in the technique itself rather than casual viewing.

If you are fan of 3D this is a must have - collection of short movies wich shows you differet senarios in 3D
Space- oceans- cultures and countries far away (like Easter iland) all in power full 3D
