Is That Film You're Seeing Real or Fake 3D?

By Michael Hession on at

3D films increasingly the norm nowadays, whether you love it or hate it (hate it). But however you feel about it, did you know that there are varying levels of 3D quality? For the discerning types, there is a convenient website that separates the real-deal, shot-in-3D flicks from the inposters that fake it.

Some of the outright fakers found at Real or Fake 3D include:

G.I. Joe Retaliation
Iron Man 3
Man of Steel
Star Trek Into Darkness

And some non-fakers?

The Great Gatsby
Monsters University
Jack the Giant Slayer
Prometheus
Life of Pi

It's true, films that are shot on 3D cameras are usually—plot notwithstanding—much more pleasing to watch than films that were simply converted to 3D after-the-fact. You might be surprised, given how prevalent the technology is, just how many films are not actually "real" 3D after all. [Real or Fake 3D via The Dissolve]
