Following claims last week by a Professor at the University of California that watching Martin Scorsese’s enchanting 3D film Hugo measurably improved his impaired vision, we thought this week why not celebrate the power of 3D with a recap of some of the best titles available in high definition on Blu-ray 3D.
Re-released on 3D for cinema goers last year, the Titanic is a classic romance that follows star- crossed lovers; debutant and socialite Rose (Kate Winslet) and penniless drifter and artist Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio), as they board the ill-fated RMS Titanic. The Blu-ray 3D edition features a whole host of special features including the documentaries Reflections on Titanic and Titanic: The Final Word, three audio commentaries with contributions from the director, cast and crew, 30 deleted scenes, 60 behind-the-scenes featurettes and a still gallery. Never one to take himself too seriously either, Cameron has also included a couple of parodies of the movie – one from the MTV Awards and another from Saturday Night Live.
Avatar tells the story of paraplegic marine Jake (Sam Worthington) and his journey on Pandora. Dispatched to take part in a unique mission to infiltrate the moon’s native population, Jake falls in love with the indigenous people and disobeys his orders to protect the world he feels is home. The film that truly kickstarted the 3D revolution still looks absolutely stunning, and the best way to experience it at home is on Blu-ray 3D.
This dream-team 3D superhero movie brings together Marvel Comics’ most famous superheroes: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury as they join forces to protect planet earth from the evil Loki and his army. As well as the high-def 3D experience, the Blu-ray includes 30 minutes of deleted footage, which focuses particularly on Captain America as he adjusts to life in the 21st century.
