  • Nahhh. 3D is okay when a movie is shot in 3D, but post-conversion is a lame process. BTTF's special effects and action sequences are cool largely because they keep them somewhat simple and minimal, so the majority of the film wouldn't gain much from 3D, and even the sequences that would be cool in 3D are basically cool enough already.

    Thank you again, Bob Gale.

    I seriously never warmed up for 3D. It's pretty OK for some of the lesser inspired action movies I guess, but I just don't like what it does to cinematography. If something in 3D is in the foreground, people LOOK AT IT. No traditional picture composition technique gets in the way. And more and more directors work with that as their only trick up their sleeve, because it beats everything else hands down. Besides, I hate the glasses as they really don't fit over my own glasses well. I seriously hope it's just a fashion.

    Now I really hope I haven't offended anyone.

  • Converting to 3d is like converting to color. It never will take off as people usually like movies the way they were made in the first place.

    Much more appreciated would be a high quality transfer to HD. As you can see on some screenshots in various forums, there were TV transmissions without excessive edge enhancement and noise reduction, which put the Blu-Ray to shame. There is no cheap filter which can enhance the movies. Only a higher quality transfer can do this.

    I second that!

  • BttF wouldn't convert to 3d well. As others have brought out, port-conversion 3d is generally quite bad and doesn't add much to movies. On top of that, BttF just doesn't seem like it would work with the 3d format. There aren't many parts of it where things are coming toward the screen or any scenes that involve large depth.

  • Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • WHERE IS THE PERFECT SHOT FOR THIS TO BE IN 3D!

    Why the HELL do we need to mess with films that should be LEFT ALONE!

  • Honestly? If it meant putting Back to the Future on the big screen again, I wouldn't really mind it. We've all got the original versions at home, they're not going anywhere, they're not changing. A 3D version wouldn't be my preferred version but it'd still be fun. Hell, I'd go see it just for the novelty of seeing Back to the Future in a movie theater again.
