Titanic 3D is expensive but if you like the movie you really should rent it from the 3D Bluray rental place.
Last year Titanic 3D went down to $20 at Best Buy a couple of weeks before Christmas. Any time now, I think. Hope so, anyway.
That might be too late unless we can get it fast! :P

For gifts, I suppose so. I didn't have 3D last year; I just remember seeing this on sale after black Friday.

I found this: http://www.titanicmovie.com/bestbuy/ for a $5 coupon for BR 3D, but it expired.

Amazon is still doing its CyberMonday for the rest of this week. They have a BR 3D filter in http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_p_n_format_browse-bi_0?rh=n%3A2625373011%2Cp_n_special_merchandising_browse-bin%3A2740904011|2740904011%2Cp_n_format_browse-bin%3A6259461011&bbn=2625373011&sort=price&ie=UTF8&qid=1386106213 ... However, they look crappy for the cheap ones. frown.gif

I finally made an order from Amazon for Life of Pi 3D for $17.99 (You Save: $32.00 (64%)). I hope it was worth it even though a bit pricey. frown.gif

The Three Musketeers is amazing in 3D

Good movie , perfect for 3D with lots of bright, vibrant colors and great scenery and sets

Very impressed and the 3D adds to the movie (i had seen it before in 2D)

The intro to Despicable Me 2 before the movie starts. The director plays with all kids of pop out and its pretty funny too.

Has anyone seen Monstors University in 3D yet? It has high reviews from blu-ray.com. I saw the 2d version and it looked stunning! Thinking about getting the 3D version since Costco has it for $23.99 right now.

And the price won't drop. I'm pretty sure BB, Fry's, Amazon have never had it below $19.xx.

We got the movie a few weeks ago. Mainly because my wife is a Pixar and especially a Monsters Inc fan.

I liked the movie itself, but wasn't blown away by the 3D. Not bad by any means, but nothing that struck me as hugely awe-inspiring. I'm not the type of guy that demands pop-out 3D either. Picture Quality was pretty darn good in general, though.

I'd grab it though, especially if you like the movie anyway. smile.gif

Every second of the Documentary is in REAL 3D and filmed with

"Legends of Flight"


Wow, over 100! Can you list out the ones that are worth keeping?

Thanks. I think I will purchase it for the price. The whole family liked the 2D version and are fans of Monstors Inc as well, and from reviews that I have read the 3D version is better. Not so much for pop-out (they state there are a couple of good ones), but for the depth and better colors mostly. I'll report my thoughts on the movie after viewing. It does have a 7.1 soundtrack as well, which sounded quite good on the 2D version.

I think all Sony (except for PS3) and Oppo players are multi-regional. Alternately you could try to override the blu-ray's security to make it an all region. I own Sammy but have yet to play it...

Sounds good. I haven't watched the 2D version yet, so I don't have much of a reference point! eek.gif

I have a Sony Bdp S5100 and it is not a multi-regional player :mad:

I have the free Avatar bluray movie that came with a Panasonic bluray player I bought years ago. Is that Avatar movie the same 3D movie that every one talks so much about? Thanks.

Probably. There might be some animation with the same title. Is yours directed by James Cameron? If so, that's it. There's a 2D and a 3D version.

Yes, it is directed by James Cameron with 2D and 3D on the same disc. I got a passive 3D TV a few days ago and just saw that movie in 3D today. I never cared for the story and the acting -- only watched the 2D version once. It's more interesting in 3D, but if this is the best 3D technology has to offer, then there is still a long way to go. Things that jump at you and things in the background are blurry most of the times. The human eyes can see things clearly from a foot in front of us and 50 feet away. 3D needs to come close to this.

I agree. I prefer to have 3D represent things as I see them in real life as much as possible. For me Avatar does this. The roundedness of objects seems especially good.
Sometimes it's fun to have things jump out in some movies but from the way things actually look to me Avatar does an excellent job.
I like it when technical things don't draw attention to themselves. Like when watching a play at the theater I don't want to have my attention drawn to the lighting. I don't want to be distracted from the story.
Of course there are exceptions to this notion.

No, I am pretty sure there is nothing wrong with my setup. I just have super high standard. I think we can agree that movies ultimately try to be as life-like as possible. While well-made 3D movies achieve this goal better than 2D, my eyes tell me Avatar doesn't come close to what I see in real life. Say, in real life, you are strolling in you backyard and a pigeon flies around you. That pigeon is never out of focus whether it's a foot from you or fifteen fit away. That's because the human eyes is capable of this instant focusing which I don't get in that movie. The flowers, insects that fly toward me were all out of focus. So were the background stuff. Now imagine you are standing at one end of a room full of people, but only the ones in the middle of the room are clearly visible while the ones in front of you and ones at the furthest end of the room are blurry. This does not happen in real life unless you have vision problems. While can't Avatar give me a clear view of everything -- near, in the middle, further away -- like I can see in real life. Also the effects look more cartoonist than life-like.

You need a tune up . "out of focus" is a setup/equipment issue. It's razor sharp in my home as well as my customers.

Some near and far things will be out of focus as a director's choice but Avatar seems very sharp on my setup.

" The human eyes can see things clearly from a foot in front of us and 50 feet away. "

But not at the same time. If you are looking at a book a foot away, your field of view that is in focus is very limited. A camera is the same. In real life, you have the ability to track/change your focal point seemingly instantaneously. A director shooting film will have to choose what they are focusing on, the only possible way to get something 12 inches away at the same time as something 50 feet away is to shoot in ultra wide angle,which would look very unnatural.

I guess in theory a director could CGI everything into focus, that might look unnatural as well.

Good point. Even still photography tends to use near or distant objects as the subject and will blur its counterpoint to draw attention where it is desired.

And as to your last point Orson Welles used deep focus at times which was very unusual. CGI often is now done deliberately out of focus to mimic the limitations of photography in order to give a sense of reality to a scene.
