Remember when 3D movies used to involve blue and red cellophane cardboard glasses and special effects which mostly consisted of a toy Godzilla destroying a miniature city? Well if you do, you can also remember how we thought it was fantastic, bad special effects leaping out of the TV screen and making you think it was going to poke your eye out; we were easily pleased. Things have gotten a little bit more sophisticated since then. Now we have 3D TVs and 3D Blu Ray players that come with futuristic glasses that are much smarter than we are. Turn on your 3D glasses and your TV will know exactly when flash a bit of light that basically tells each eye to see the picture slightly differently to create illusion of depth.
Now I know that this is hardly a comprehensive technical explanation but let’s face it, for the viewer, it’s not really about how it works but how awesome it looks. To be able to see a Blu Ray in 3D puts you right in the action and lets you see things in the depth of a scene that you may not notice in a 2D movie. Details become clearer and everything just seems more real. The 3D experience can cover everything from nature documentaries, action movies, sci fi and animated movies. Whatever kind of Blu Ray you like you will probably now find a 3D Blu Ray to satisfy.
Live action 3D Blu Rays such as The Hobbit and Great Gatsby are spectacular in 3D, giving you a vivid sense of reality to the story. But personally I think that animated 3D Blu Rays are where you really get to enjoy the 3D technology and you really can’t go past Avatar as the ultimate 3D experience. James Cameron may have created the world of Pandora, but 3D Blu Ray allows us to really become a part of the fantasy. So grab a 3D Blu Ray online and sit back and let your clever 3D TV really take you into the story.
