My Samsung Plasma Does a Better Job of 3D Conversion Than ILM Did
Sorry I've been so absent around these parts as of late! This new site redo has been kicking my ass. I promise we'll return you to your regularly scheduled Wookiee soon.
Speaking of Wookiees, I thought you guys might dig a little blog I wrote yesterday about my experiences with Star Wars: Episode I in 3D this weekend. The title kinda gives my thoughts on the 3D conversion away: it sucked. Oddly enough, my Samsung plasma did a better job.
Clicky for more thoughts on the matter.

Very interesting results Dennis. I don't currently have a 3D display but if I did, I wouldn't expect it to convert a 2D film better than big Hollywood. I wonder if the 2D to 3D effect would be deeper if you had a 90"+ front projection.
I didn't exactly love Episode I and wasn't going out to see it in 3D, but your findings are surprising.

Well, I moved up to about 5.5 feet away from my 58" for the 3D test, so it was pretty field-of-view filling. I honestly think the flatness of Episode I's image just doesn't leave much for any 3D conversion process to work with.
