3D or not 3D, that is the question.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Predator (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray)  (Blu-ray)
James Cameron's "Titanic 3D" conversion shows that when done properly, films that were not originally shot in 3D, can look fantastic. Unfortunately, "Predator 3D" isn't one of them.
I've always liked this film and was really looking forward to seeing it again when I heard that it was being given the 3D treatment. The jungle environment in particular had me eagerly awaiting it's release.
Now I've seen it, it's fair to say that I am extremely disappointed with the results. At times, the jungle does seem to have some nice depth to it, but there are portions of the film that seem to have had no conversion whatsoever. At times watching it, I thought there was a problem with my glasses and had to take them off to check what I was seeing.
The day before watching "Predator 3D" I had watched the "Jurassic Park 3D" blu-ray and like Predator, large portions of the film are set in the jungle, but, unlike Predator, the 3D was consistent and it was an immersive experience.
Predator 3D is a lazy conversion and you can't help thinking that it's release was a half hearted effort, of minimal cost by Fox to rake in money from a film they know would be extremely popular with 3D enthusiasts.
I've now got approximately 150 3D titles and Predator 3D has to be the poorest in my collection.
Picture and sound quality are okay, but again, nothing special.

Considering it's a conversion, Jurassic Park is very good. Apparently, it was produced by the same company that did the Titanic conversion, so Spielberg obviously thought they were the best to go too.
As for my personal top five 3D films, I would have to say that in order of preference they are:
1. Avatar. The absolute best 3D film to date. Perfect.
2. Dredd. Surprisingly, this is a fantastic 3D film. Considering it was a relatively low budget film, the 3D easily beats most of big budget releases.
3. Titanic. If you can forgive the soppy love story, in 3D it is breathtaking and looks like a completely different film.
4. Life Of Pi. A beautiful film that really benefits from being in 3D.
5. Hugo. Another amazingly beautiful film in 3D.
I would also recommend any of the IMAX 3D blu-ray releases, especially:
1.Ultimate Wave Tahiti.
3.Legends Of Flight.
All are simply breathtaking.

Try A turtles tale for 3D quality.

I would agree with A Turtles Tale.
Also, since my original post, I would also highly recommend the SKYTV David Attenborough 3d releases.
