5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic In 3D, 12 Nov 2011
This review is from: Cave Of Forgotten Dreams (Blu-ray 2D + 3D Blu-ray) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I saw this on a Samsung active 3D system and it is amazing. The cave paintings make much more sense in 3D when you see the way they use the relief of the cave walls. Since we'll probably never (and should never) go in this cave, this is the closest we'll get to the oldest known art and it's not just a few lines on the wall - these drawings are startlingly realistic depictions of animals that no longer exist, sometimes scratched over by cave bears and in some cases covered up by thousands of years of calcite growth.

One of the earlier reviews comments on the 2D quality and it is often very grainy as is the (two images) 3D watched without glasses. For reasons beyond my recall of science, maths and filters, the grain is largely gone when you watch it through 3D active shutter glasses - any 3D filter experts want to comment on this?

Amongst Werner Herzog films I've seen, this one seems rather upbeat and he's actually less in the centre of things than in some of the others. He almost seems to joking around with 3D when he has one chap repeatedly poke a spear at the camera.

If you have an interest in human history, the history of art, geology or you just want to watch something breathtaking, then see this and try to see it in 3D if you can.
