Awful movie, cheesy music, cheesy acting, bad directing and writing just a big mess. where to start, the dramatic music gave me a head ache like nothing else it just went on and on. Thought it was a musical for a little but no one song so I guess not. But they did dance for 5 min before the can use their powers. So anyone with 50/50 vision and a gun wins, you have 5 min shoot in their general direction bound to get a hit. Now the acting with self narration, for example a guy climbing a ladder, someone shouts out he’s climbing a ladder, like the old time batman show. I was clapping at the [...]
The arguments over whether 3D TV will finally catch on are far from over, but the signs are good in the US at least where Panasonic has apparently sold out its entire allocation of 3D television bundles.
Despite a price tag of $2899 (£1,897), Panasonic has had no trouble shifting its stock and the bundle of a 3D ready television, a set of 3D glasses and a 3D Blu-ray player has proven to be a big hit.
Hitoshi Otsuki, Senior Managing Director for Panasonic’s overseas operations, said, “It’s a great opportunity to turn around our TV business.”

The PC’s been quietly at it for years, but it wasn’t until Sony’s recent reveal that it’ll be building stereoscopic 3D support into the PlayStation 3 with an upcoming firmware update that the world really started squealing “ooh! Ooh! We want that!”
It’s a delightful idea – but given how divisive 3D cinema has proven to be, is all this techno-kerfuffle really worth it? Here’s the case for the defence, and for the prosecution….
Five reasons you’ll love 3D gaming…
1. 3D is easy and free to implement
For the Playstation 3, it’s [...]
James Cameron has revealed that Avatar won’t be getting a 3D Blu-ray release until November, confirming that the film will not be among the first movies released on the 3D home format.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Cameron announced that Avatar will get a special edition DVD and Blu-ray 3D release in the winter, but a standard non-3D version will hit shops – in the US at least – 22 April.
It’s a touch annoying that Fox has decided to do the dreadful double-dip on the film. This used to happen to DVDs every few years – special edition, extended edition, definitive [...]
It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement surrounding 3D TV.
DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg proclaimed that: “2010 will be the year in which 3D is brought to the home.” Stephen Gater, LG’s Head of Marketing for Home Entertainment said: “we’re witnessing the start of dramatic change in how we view TV.”
While a bullish Samsung laid out its plans at CES. “Just as we created the LED market last year, we will lead the industry in the 3D market this year,” boasted its US president Tim Baxter.
Although 3D telly prototypes have [...]
That other tablet that was announced just a week ago sure doesn’t seem to be setting Fusion Garage’s Joojoo off course. Not only did it see an increase in orders after the iPad announcement, but Fusion Garage CEO Chandra Rathakrishna just told us that production of the 12-inch tablet has kicked off and that the product is on target to start shipping this month. And it doesn’t sound like legal fees from fighting the TechCrunch lawsuit over the product are depleting Fusion Garage’s bank account: Chandra told us it’s teamed up with OEM CSL Group of Malaysia, which will [...]
In what ways will computer and videogames change in the next 10 years? It is a question that tech-obsessed gamers often ask each other (often after a few pints on a Friday night), when we consider just how far we have come since the early days of the Spectrum and the C64 in the 1980s.
The last ten years have been gaming’s golden decade. The next-gen consoles fulfilled their early promises. And then some. And we were treated to some truly classic gaming moments, as we recently documented in TechRadar’s top 12 games of the noughties.
But the games industry is nothing if not forward-looking. [...]
The CEO of EA Sports, Peter Moore, has revealed his thoughts about 3D gaming and feels that sports titles will play a big part in bringing the technology to the mainstream.
Speaking exclusively to CVG, Moore said about the importance of 3D and sports: “It’s no coincidence that of the 3D [TV] broadcasts I’ve seen in the last two years, I can count the NBA All-Star event in Las Vegas, while ESPN has announced 3D programming – perhaps even a full channel.
“There have also been a number of announcements around the World Cup, with some games broadcast in 3D.”
James Cameron’s Avatar has knocked off James Cameron’s Titanic as the biggest film of all time at the box-office, reaping in a staggering $1.842 billion worth of ticket receipts so far.
The film, which has been pitched by many as the linchpin to the whole 3D revolution, has had some glowing reviews from critics and audiences alike and does go some way in proving that 3D isn’t a gimmick but actually something which has sparked a resurgence in going to the cinema.

Star Wars 3D has been given a new lease of life thanks to James Cameron’s Avatar. According to Star Wars creator George Lucas, the project had been stalling but after seeing Avatar become such a success at the cinema, it has given him, ahem, a new hope to make the project a success.
“I’m happy it’s so successful, and worked very well in 3D,” Lucas explained to Access Hollywood about Avatar.
“I haven’t been a big fan of 3D, but that movie definitely improves in [the field of] 3D.”
Star Wars struggle
When prompted about his own 3D plans, he noted: [...]
