This is pretty much the only way (import it). This is where I got my copy from.

$3 off first order.

NEWTWITTER3

Free shipping at $39, so I bought a crappy CD for $2 and applied to the code and it was about $37 shipped for me.

Thanks

I just watched Tangled 3D with the kids, WOW! That is some of the best use of 3D that I've seen on my set to date. The lantern scene towards the end should be the go-to scene in stores selling 3D equipment. Unreal depth and lots of pop-out.

I finally got around to watching Hugo over the weekend. I thought it was a very good use of 3D. Didn't really get into the storyline though.

I posted this in the other thread but I will post it here too. Sammy's Adventure was excellent and you can now rent it from VUDU.

Vudu is streaming, right? Or do you actually get discs from them?

You can also download the movie (at least on the PS3). That way you can get the highest quality w/o the risk of buffering.

Good to know. Not 100% relevant in a thread asking about the "Best 3D Bluray movie so far", but considering the interest in Sammy's and difficulties getting it in the US, I'll allow it. Since I'm the boss, and all.

I know the sacrasim is there in your post but I just wanted to clarify. I didn't order the disc because it is not very easy to access here in the US but if you have access to VUDU give it a try it's not half bad. Some of the other folks in the streaming section swear it is the "best" streaming signal available.

Yes, hopefully my humor came across... as humor. Just joshin', no insult intended, of course.

Saw "Tangled 3D" just yesterday and I must say that I was very pleased with 3D. And I liked the story as well, not bad.

Now that I've finally seen Sammy's Adventure I can definitely see what all the hype was about. This one of the BEST uses of 3D that I've seen. This movie should serve as a benchmark to others.

I finally saw only the preview of Sammy's Adventure on VUDU and just the 2 minute preview was nice. The opening scene with the turtle talking with the sand practically in the living room was nice, so I know for sure this will be a buy. I was being cheap and did not watch it on VUDU but want to wait for it to arrive here. Hopefully there is a special when it does come out so it's not the regular $35 price range.

I just watched about 30 minutes of Sammy on VUDU. I have to agree that the 3D is impressive. As someone has mentioned before, it's like the movie takes place in between the viewer and the display. Although it looked good, this is the first 3D movie that I had to stop watching. The eyestrain at 30 minutes was too distracting. Is anyone else having issues with viewing this movie?

Wow to Sammy's Adventures! The 3D is definitely immersive. When the snake comes through the screen is crazy! The movie itself was O-K. So far this one, Journey to the Center of the Earth and of course, Avatar are my favs. Going to check out The Adventures of Tin Tin tonight. These are all BD content btw, not streamed.

Sammy's Adventure is the definative 3D movie and worth seeking out. Even compared to the latest 3D offerings such as TinTin and Hugo, it blows them out of the water. Right now, there is NO movie out there that can compare to Sammy's Adventure for the best 3D. It is just amazing, true demo material. So, seek it out or get a region player. It will be worth it.

Sounds great but it's a cartoon for kids. I might like the 3d effects but probably wouldn't want to sit through the movie.

We have it on blu-ray and no eye strain and our set is passive 3D, works great and I've made previous posts how good the 3D is.

I agree but it was a no brainer for me as we have 2 kids and they both love the movie. I'm not crazy about the story line but the 3D is impressive as others say. You could only justify the spend if you do the rental, that way you can see the 3D and you're not stuck with the movie.


*Side note, I keep reading posts that say they can't find the disk. It's been mentioned several times within this thread, you can order it from http://dddhouse.com/v3/product_detai...roductID=12014. I did and it took around 8 days to reach our house.

Wouldn't say it is the best but Drive Angry delivered a fun filled in your face 3d experience, I also enjoyed the quality of the 3d in Hugo and the movie itself is nothing short of fantastic.

I've said it here before but I'll say it again, IMHO if you're going for pure great live-action 3D, STEP UP 3D. Not a cinematic masterpiece by any stretch but the 3D is absolutely fantastic!

Agreed, wish I had the disc instead of the vudu version

Man, the worst movie for eye strain to me lately was the Star wars 3d in the theater. My eyes were so tired I was having to fight to stay awake a couple of times. My friends all experienced the same thing.
Before that, it was Journey to the center of the earth with Brendan Frazier on 3d DVD = migraine for me and nausea for my friend. Couldn't finish it.
