The Best Conversion Yet... Lucas Blows the Doors off 3D!
Amazing! Absolutely, shockingly amazing!
By now, everyone knows Lucas tinkers with his masterpiece, but he's also a technical perfectionist. If anyone can do a 3D conversion right, it's Lucas. And OH EM GEE, did he EVER do it right! This 3D conversion was better than many "native" 3D movies.
When I say done right, I don't just mean great space battles and lots of additional background elements brought out. Yes, he did that, and did it well. But the make-it-or-break-it of 3D lies in the subtlety, particularly people in the foreground, most noticeable in the depth of their facial expression. If it looks like puffy cardboard cutouts, it's wrong... like most 3D conversions. In Star Wars, the facial and bodily depth was so natural, that I would have sworn it was native.
Many scenes were re-framed, and this was a bit disconcerting, and over- heavy 3D in places could be distracting. But overall it played well, and was a truly exciting and fun experience!
Our audience loved it!
