Phantom Menace

By far my least favorite Star Wars movie, but the addition of 3D almost made me forget JarJar. 3D and Star Wars seem made for each other. I look forward to the good ones being remade into 3D as well.

Plenty of depth for a shallow story

Down to the nitty gritty. Is the 3-D worth paying $8-$11 bucks to go see? No, not really. The 3-D was done well, in that the picture quality didn't suffer at all. But instead of popping off the screen, it sank into it, giving it a new field of depth which was nice at times, but at other times made me continuously aware of the dimensions of the screen. Nothing ever really came out at you. The best scene, for me, was the ending space battle that looked beautiful in 3-D. But otherwise- I felt like I spent $8 to see a movie I already own on Blu-ray and DVD.

It was pretty cool. Being able to take my children to see Star Wars on the big screen made it very much worth this $11.00 per ticket. They want to see the rest now. Which is good for Lucas and OK with me.

I suspect it was a good movie. I opened my package of 3D glasses in the dark and put them on. I didn't like the way the glasses FIT or made the movie dark. After the movie I found out I had a child's pair of glasses. Stupid me! But the theatre should know better. My companion we found out after the show had adult glasses. BOOOOO! on the theatre, they ruined a good movie. Make sure you have adult 3D glasses.

The Truth About Episode I "3D"

It had been a long time since I'd seen this movie (on VHS no less). I thought the big screen experience in 3D might make a difference. As for the "3D", it's a mess. There's only so much you can do when the material wasn't shot for 3D, but the converting here looks like it was done during an all-nighter. Blurring everywhere and minimal added dimension. Definitely not worth the trade off of darker, grainier colors through the glasses. The movie itself is a testament to bad movie making. The acting and script are worse than you remember. There is more Jar Jar Binks than you remember. At least the sound is good. Simply put, George Lucas has once again opened his valve of swill, and once again, legion fanboys are willing to lap it up and call it genius. I read one review on here praising the 3D conversion as "OMG". Meanwhile Lucas is laughing all the way to the bank with the extra $5 you and that rose colored reviewer paid to see this atrocious stink pile in alleged 3D.
