After seeing a few films in 3D last year (Alice in Wonderland, Despicable Me, Toy Story 3) I have decided to not bother with 3D in the theaters for the foreseeable future. I'm generally the type of viewer to embrace new technologies such as High Definition, Imax, Digital projection, etc, but I just don't feel like 3D is actually adding something to the experience.

3D is just not the same kind of incremental upgrade to the viewing experience that Color TV was or HDTV was. It doesn't make the film seem more lifelike and realistic, because of the way film makes frequent use of changing perspectives and scene changes.

I kind of agree.

3D is a nice treat once in a while, but starts to become a distraction when used when not needed.

Further, I refuse to pay extra for any 3D movie that was merely a conversion. If you want me to pay more, shoot the movie in 3D. No cheating just to peck more cash out of my wallet.

i don't have a 3d tv, but maybe that means they'll have to make a new master that actually looks like it was shot in 65mm/vistavision...

someone's going to have fun converting that Paris cafe explosion scene....

I'll believe it when I read it from a credible source.

Got a question. I'm using Makemkv and see there are 2 tracks each 14 chapters and over 30 GB in size. Most of the references are for 00100.mpls, however there is also 00101.mpls which is slightly larger.

Anyone know what the difference is between these 2 titles on the Blu Ray Disc? Looks like 00100.mpls is 2:28:07 in length, while 00101.mpls is 3:10:22 in length.

00100.mpls - Duration: 2:28:07, 14 Chapters, 32.5 GB, Lossless DTS HD and Lossy DTS 5.1
00101.mpls - Duration: 3:10:22, 14 Chapters, 37.0 GB, Lossless DTS HD and Lossy DTS 5.1

I think one of them is the special features from Disk 1. You want the one that is 148 minutes.

I recall having some issues when ripping my copy, but that might have had something to do with the codecs I had installed at the time. It plays fine now, so I might just be imagining things.

I recall that mine was title02 or something weird like that. Anyway, as the previous poster said, one of them has some special features things. It jumps into this "this is how this scene was done" in the middle of the movie if you access the feature. Do the 2:28:07 one.

Living Room: Samsung PN60F8500 PDP / Anthem MRX 720 / Klipsch RC-62 II / Klipsch RF-82 II (x2) / SVS PC13-Ultra / Sony MDR-7506 Professional / Sony PS3 / DirecTV HR44-500 / DarbeeVision DVP-5000 Darblet / Panamax M5400-PM / miniDSP UMIK‑1 USB
Bedroom: Samsung PN59D7000 PDP / Energy Power Bar Elite Soundbar & SW / Astro A50 / Sony PS4 / DirecTV C41W-500 / DarbeeVision DVP-5000 Darblet / Hauppauge HD PVR 2
Classroom: SMART Board X800 / Yamaha RX-V667 / Insignia NS-B2111 (x2) / SVS SB-2000
