Absolutely love Weird Science. Watched it again about a year ago and it still made me crack up.  Other than that, not a big fan.  No knock on the guy at all. I'm just completely ambivalent towards his movies.

Completely agree with your Oscar comments


To be fair to Scorsese, though,  The academy always kisses his ass when he makes a "mob" or "gangster" themed film. Let him try and make something else and it's like he farted in a windowless room.  They aren't very subjective when he makes crime movies. They just kiss hiss ass.

It worked with Leon: The Professional. I thought that film was so real that I figured the movie was a documentary.  ;D

Uhh....they're kinda the same movie.

Regardless... I stopped watching Hanna after her and the other girl hooked up with the boys and started riding around.  Lost my interest at that point. My wife finished it and she was very disappointed by it.  Oh well.  :P

Not worth the wait in my opinion.  Another franchise reboot and origin retelling with some pretty bland actors and a god awful Emma Frost.

I did other things while watching this movie it lost my interest so fast.

Gee, I daknow. The idea of having the 3D effect while using some of the Plasmids sounds pretty cool.  Especially telekinesis.  Bioshock was a great game, regardless.  Excellent  taste, sir.

It's not for either. My TV can convert 2D-3D so I tried it with Need For Speed.  The game itself has NO 3D settings on either console. The TV did the 3D conversion.

So we got a new 55" Samsung LED 3D 1080p 240hz TV on Labor Day. Obviously, we took advantage of a holiday sale.  I am a huge videophile and was totally stoked to get this TV.

So we get it home and I set it up, hook up the cable box, my Sony Network Media player, The Blu-ray player and of course, my Playstation 3. I figured, since I already owned Killzone 3, which was designed for 3D play, I would test it out first chance I got. Here are my impressions .

The TV actually converts 2D to 3D as well as playing back 3D coded content. I booted up Need For Speed:Hot Pursuit on the PS3 and turned on the 2D-3D feature on the TV. It immediately gained an amazing level of depth and looked awesome.  Played it for a couple of races and then took a break. So far, so good.

After making dinner and eating the aforementioned dinner, I popped in Killzone 3 and sat down, prepared to put in some serious game time. As soon as the game booted up, a prompt came up on the TV informing me that the game supported 3D and asked if I wanted to activate it. I did so and popped on my 3D glasses.

Initially, I was blown away by the level of depth created by the 3D and basically couldn't stop staring at the environments. I did notice that the graphics degraded a little bit, along with the frame rate. There was a little bit of screen tearing but overall, everything looked really nice and 3 dimensional.  The game still played great, and the change in depth perception did not affect my ability to pull off headshots. :D

Unfortunately, and this also seems to happen with Blu-ray movies and video in general, when there is a heavy amount of action on screen, the image appears to flatten a bit. I noticed this also happening while I watched Doomsday on Blu-ray.  I did a bit of research and this seems to be the norm. It also happened when I played the Motorstorm Apocalypse 3D demo and the God Of War Origins 3D demo. The heavier the action on screen, the flatter the 3D image.

On to the physical reactions to the 3D.

I got nauseous after about 10 minutes of play. My vision was fine. No headaches. No blurriness. But my stomach got queasy. Not enough to make it unbearable to play, but enough so that there was some discomfort and nausea. This has happened every single time I used the 3D feature while either playing a game or watching a movie. Again, not enough to put me off, but it is noticeable.

To close, I don't find 3D gaming all that compelling but I certainly don't mind it.  Movies, having pre-rendered video, look absolutely beautiful.  Just be prepared for the physical side effects. I have heard that nausea, blurriness of vision and headaches are common side effects of 3D viewing. I can vouch for the nausea. Fortunately, the others haven't affected me. Yet.
