When are they going to make a 3-D civil war movie... i'm not big on 3d movies, only seen one, but i think it would be great to see a civil war 3d movie.Shell's flying over your head, horses racing by, dirt flying around... do you think it would be a sucessful movie?
In truth though 3D is the current "thing" now. Having a 3D movie might bring in more people to learn about the civil war. Actually i became a civil war buff because my dad took me to see Gettysburg when i was 5... i think ive seen it close to a hundred times since and i still love it.
You just made me feel old about going to see Gettysburg when you were five. I was 18, almost 19, when the movie hit theaters.
And while I do absolutely agree that movies can help to get folks interested in history, I disagree with 3D. The 3D fad comes and goes, and from the sounds of things it's starting it's down slide again already. True 3D will be holograms and you won't need to wear special glasses to see the "effects." But as yet holographic technology hasn't advanced far enough to be more than sci-fi.
Must-See 3DTV? Fields of Valor: The Civil War: Our Sneak Peek By Chris Chiarella
3net, the nation's first and only fully-programmed 24/7 3D network, will be debuting their new four-part mini-series Fields of Valor: The Civil War on Saturday, December 3 at 9pm Eastern and Pacific time. A dramatization based on actual individuals and events, Fields of Valor was produced in full stereoscopic 3D.
3net was kind enough to send us a preview disc of the first episode, and if it does indeed represent the "99%" of what the final product will look like, then I can say that the production values are solid and viewers will be in for a treat.
The storyline follows the 20th Massachusetts and 1st Virginia Infantry Regiments who clashed during the Civil War. We learn a bit about the men and the politics before we find ourselves in the middle of a series of bloody battles.
The results are unlike any Civil War recreation we've ever seen. At times, Fields of Valor looks like it was directed by Zack Snyder, the image occasionally freeze-framing but for a slow-motion spray of simulated blood issuing from a wounded soldier. The musical score also comes curiously, dangerously close to heavy metal at times. Much of the historical facts that we gain along the way come from the mouths of a few men on each side of the conflict played by unknown but determined actors.
thanks javal1 i will have to watch that... of course i dont have the money for a 3d tv but one of my buddies has one, have to go commandeer it.
Mark the way i see 3d tv it's like the silent films of old, they are just the stepping stone to something greater. i think we'll have another 20 years before we see a true hologram... well at least at a price i could afford.
Well there is no doubt that movie and TV are performed differently.TV represent our local activity which we never see and movie gives us knowledgeable information and represent natural environment which is away from us .In last I would like to say that TV and movie have their own places .
