I saw Fury Road in 3D the first time I saw it, and the 3D didn't add anything, and actually made it appear worse during the climactic crash scene ... subsequent 2D viewings appeared just fine to me.

There are two films I've enjoyed in 3D, Dredd and Avatar - and Dredd is still very watchable in 2D as well. Conversely all other films I've seen in 3D appeared to be inferior experiences compared to the 2D version, so I generally stick with that.

I have a 3D TV at home, but have never used that function on it because I just can't be bothered.

I don't care about 3D also. I don't have any depth perception anyway because of one almost blind eye.
So I even hate it when certain movies only play in 3D in the cinema's. I refuse to wear those irritating glasses just to see a flat screen instead of double.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

You cite I, Robot as a non cropped example but they actually opened up the aspect ratio for the 3D blu ray especially. The previous 2D version and the way it was shot was with the widescreen black bars at the top and bottom.

The same was done for Avatar and Titanic 3D blu rays.

It just depends what ratio the director wanted to shoot in. I agree fullscreen 3D looks better but a lot of directors still opt for the letterboxed widescreen look.


Cropped was a poor choice of words, its all about aspect ratios.
I`ve got 14 BR 3D disc`s and only I Robot has the correct aspect ratio, the rest are letterboxed, which is fine for a 2D release but not this format. Not gunna change
real soon as they have started to include small scenes of action to bleed out of the letterboxing briefly to "enhance" the 3D experience and totally missing the point.

The correct aspect ratio is up to the director. Whatever ratio they choose is correct as they are the artist in this instance. It is not up to us viewers to decide what is correct and what is not. Of course we can be vocal about what we prefer but like 'cropped' I think 'correct' would also be the wrong word to use here as you are talking about a personal preference thst actually goes against what the director intended.

Well if that is indeed the case, the format is doomed to fail.

You cannot take a thirty foot experience down to a 60 inch (if one is lucky enough) presentation area and THEN downsize that again another three inches off the top and bottom.

There is no justification for it.

Well fantastic 3D experiences can and are still delivered in a letterboxed format and not every director shoots in widescreen. Look at Pacific Rim for example, Guillermo Del Toro prefers the 'full screen' look. I think the disadvantage with not shooting in proper widescreen is that movies can start to look a bit 'TVish' for want of a better term. Widescreen is much more Cinematic. However on a big TV it's not an issue and the 3D can shine just as well.
