Well no, the 2009 is the anaglyph. Anaglyph 3D uses glasses with colored lenses, which are included. You don't need a 3D tv to watch it in 3D and it includes the 2D version if you prefer to watch it that way. I've seen the disc and there aren't any compression issues. I think you would be fine with it. There appears to be four different US blu ray releases, the anaglyph 3D, two with the blu ray 3D format, and the 2D. The latter is the most expensive and personally I don't see the point in paying more for less. YMMV.
