The Professor, helped by his flying robot M.A.X., tries to show us the history of 3-D film, and his newest innovation, Real-O-Vision (ride films). But his hardware keeps breaking down, particularly when he's trying to introduce a music video of Elvira. Written by

While the title is clearly intended to be "Encounter in the Third Dimension," the actual on-screen title includes a typo generated by M.A.X., the first of many malfunctions. MAX tries to fix it, but destroys the title in the process. See more »
So who cares if the plot's sketchy and repetitive, and the dialogue childish? It's the spectacle here that counts. And it really works; the superbly detailed CG chamber where the action takes place, the lighting and textures are lovely and highly detailed and the animation is excellent - especially during the phenomenal roller-coaster ride to the centre of the earth simulator sequence. On the downside, there is a lot of strobing on some fast moving scenes (lack of motion blur), and not all of the elements hold together (but these are minor complaints). Topped of with a suitably wacky number from Elvira, it's easy going fun with 3-D that benefits from the visually all-encompassing IMAX format.
