3D can be fun, depending on how well the movie is mastered in the technique.
Most of the time, it is like watching a fish tank, with all the action back inside rather
than out in front -- with the occasional gimmick of protruding arrows or snowflakes, etc.
You would need a player and you would need the software. Most titles are just as cheap
in 3D packaging, so a player would be the main expense. I don't think 3D adds much to
the cost of a BluRay player anymore. Did you get the glasses? They are $50/pair, too.
Maybe you should wait till you land that next gig!

The settings are terrible out of the box, so my settings don't have to be perfect to be an improvement.
Maybe you can modify them and improve them. Fleshtones have been tough to get right.
