Would You Watch the Movie Wrath of the Titans in 3D?

March 29th, 2012 · 10 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos

If you’ve seen the Clash of the Titans in 3D last year you might’ve left the movie theater very disappointed, both from the movie being nothing special and the fact that the 3D was actually quite bad, so bad in fact that when talking about bad conversion to 3D of a movie most people directly associate it with that particular title. And indeed the conversion from the 2D footage that was originally shot for that movie to 3D wasn’t done good and the fact that the movie was full of special effects did not help much the conversion to 3D. And now it is time for the sequel of the movie called Wrath of the Titans (3D) and yet again it was not shot in 3D, but was instead shot in 2D and them converted to 3D in post, so are you ready for another disappointment? Haven’t seem the movie myself yet, and I’m not really sure that I’d go to see it after the disappointment from the first one and the first reviews about the Wrath of the Titans aren’t doing it any good without even mentioning the 3D of the movie. So would you go and watch it and in 3D or not, knowing that it is converted to 3D and with all the bad reviews from the previous movie?

    I think I might watch it, but probably not in 3D knowing it’s just a 2D conversion. Every once in a while, I like going to see a movie just for the effects.

    The Wrath of the Titans might turn out to be good for that at least… ;)

    I will definately be seeing this one on a 3D screen. I have recently enjoyed some 3D conversions, i.e. Captain America, John Carter, Narnia, and I feel that when done well a conversion can be as enjoyable as a poorly filmed native 3D show. The previews of the Avengers look great in 3D and it looks like the conversion artists are getting better all the time. I’ll give Wrath a chance just to see how improved it is from the first film….should be easy!

    No, I just have no interest in seeing conversions any more. Been burnt or underwhelmed too many times.

    I’m trying to see ALL the 3D movies so I will probably go to see it!
    I have a monthly subscription with one of the major movie theater operator in France, for about 20 euros I can go as many time I want to the cinema. And going to see a 3D movie, given I bring my own RealD glasses cost me nothing more than for a 2D movie.

    I’ll give a listen to what people have to say first, but even then, I’m wondering if I’ll get any honest answers just because its a sequel to one of the worst 3D conversions ever. In fact Crash of the Titans is the brand name in bad 3D conversions.

    Thankfully, Wrath looks like the better movie, 3D or not, so I might just go see it in 3D no matter what I hear. It’s hard to trust the hive mentality of the Internet nowadays.

    ok i just got back from watching this in Imax 3D and all i have to say is that the 3D in it was really really Good! it was like watching movies at my house… really big improvement if its a converted movie… also the trailer for the avengers was Awesome!

    i don’t like watching 3d movies if there not on Imax

    I’ll probably wait for reviews, but having recently seen Hugo and Journey to the center of the earth 3d (yes the move from 2008) and shooting is definitely not the same as converting. Yes, there is plain bad directing in s-3d and good directing in s-3d, just like there is good and bad conversion, but I don’t see conversion being able to get anywhere near actual s-3d footage, especially as directors keep getting better at filming in native s-3d.

    The 3D was great. The story was good, the art direction (hell scenes particulary – Barlowe’s work??) was awesome.
