I just picked this up from Best Buy this morning and Will watch this a little bit later and I'll have a mini-review up soon! Anyone else who watches it post your thoughts here!

This thread will be about the quality of the 3-D, not the actual movie, cuz we all know its not that great of a flick. I have heard that the 3-D is well done and has some great moments... We'll see!


My review: (Samsung PN58C7000) This movie is actually a lot of fun! I really don't like slasher movies but some of the "gimmick" pop shots are done very well. I caught myself moving a bunch of times. The movie is pretty dark most of the time but still does a good job of showing very good depth! I would pick this movie up just to show your friends. There are a few parts that make this movie worth owning. The overall movie is pretty average but as far as 3-D goes its amazing!

Are they willing to negotiate on price, or are they standing pat on their absurd $35 for a $17 BD?

Ummm, Best Buy negotiate price? I don't think so. I picked it up today as well, I'm hoping for the price to drop over the next 30 days to get a little money back.

Yea, $34.99 is the price. Close to $40 with tax.. If there was only more content out there I'd laugh at this..

The best buy I went to only had 2 copies left at 10:30am...

Looking forward to hearing reviews, although even if they are glowing I won't buy a bad movie for $40; 3D or not!

But I am happy others have more 3D content to enjoy Maybe when it goes on sale for sub-$20...

Play nice. It's just an online forum :)

The movie was definitely shot for 3D. A lot of the movie takes place in the mines and at night, so there are some dark scenes. Overall a lot of fun, though, with one scene containing a lot of nudity, and some scenes having the gimmicky pop out effect that some people here hate. I actually liked some of the pop out stuff with the pick ax, and perhaps the best one was the shot of a motor that seemed to extend out of the frame during a "normal" scene. With not much else available to us on 3D Blu-ray, this was a welcome addition. Sure it's overpriced, but even Best Buy knows that all of the people that bought new 3D TVs are starving for 3D content.

I finished watching the movie on my 82" using my PS3. The movie started with the title screen and knew it was connected to a 3D TV so no input was required. This was my first 3D BR that was not animated. Viewing real people acting was refreshing. The 3D was OK but the movie was too dark as most of it is was shot inside a mine. The movie was very bloody so be warned. The extras were reasonable but in 2D but brighter. Since at this time I have to collect all the 3D BR movies available I forked over the $35 plus tax. The movie was made with 3D cameras so the quality was fine.

I didn't find this to be a good transfer at all. Lots of double imaging throughout. I'm not a happy camper considering how much I paid for this. I waited all day to get home and watch this crappy 3D transfer. I even tried on a different pair of glasses with no difference. All my other titles look way way better. My system consists of a Samsung PN63C8000 3D Plasma and a Samaung BD-C6900 and all my current 3D titles look fantastic. I really feel ripped off right now.

The quality of 3D is outstanding. No ghosting on my DLP at all. Has some good depth along with some good pop effects. I like horror films, so I like the movie, although I like the original movie better as a movie. You should add this to your 3D collection.

I didn't see any ghosting using a Panasonic 350 Blu-ray player and watching on a Panasonic 65VT25.

Interesting, because I expected to see something very cool. Every nook and cranny is dialed in on my set. Honestly it's the first time I've had this issue. Blu Ray firmware is up to date as well as the tv so not sure why you guys aren't seeing what I'm seeing. The first scene when Harry Warden puts on his mask, Ghosting, the scene when the two cops are in the hospital hallway and down the hallway where the other cop is standing, ghosting, when the hand is dripping blood well that was the worst out of all the scenes. Going to f with the tv settings. See what happens in a bit. I will let you know.

I went back and watched those parts and my settings are almost the same as yours and I did see maybe a little ghosting, but maybe once or twice in the whole movie I caught myself noticing... Not bad at all..

I sent my son out to pick this up and he said it had 4 pair of glasses in it. Is that true or was this made for 3d tv.

Sorry for taking up so much room in here I know it's not the tech room but the ghost or maybe it's more a double image at times regardless it's real evident to me. What settings are you using that differ from mine since they are almost the same? I'm def open to suggestion? Some parts do look ok to me but again no other movie I have has this problem (Coraline, Ice Age, CWACOM, MvA, GC:RAR,etc..) even clash of the titans trumps this in 3D and general PQ at least on my tv. So maybe a little more adjustment is needed since every one days how good it looks. I may even reset my calibration and start from scratch

Copied this review of this movie from another site: Ghosting I guess is a real issue with this movie...



"Watched the whole thing all the way through today. I'd never seen the film before, and my expectations were set incredibly low. The film is really awful.
The transfer also had some issues...I have now watched 7 titles on 3D Blu-ray and this one suffers from MAJOR ghosting issues. Perhaps it is the nature of all the dark photography, but it seemed like I was seeing way more ghosting than I'm used to. The daylight scenes were fantastic though. It's still a good first step, but I think the quality of the camera used is what limited the presentation here. There will be better titles out on the market soon enough, but if you liked the film in 2D, or you are just hungry for 3D content, this fills in the gap nicely.

I am seeing all this talk about ghosting on this movie, but I wonder if teh DLP televisions are superior for 3D viewing. I am using the Panasonic BDT300 with a Samsung HL61A750 LED DLP television, with no ghosting on any of my Blu-ray 3D movies including this one. When I switched to my new receiver, Onkyo TX-SR608, I started having ghosting. I then turned off the video processing and the ghosting went away again. So I do not know if maybe stereo receivers may be causing ghosting with video processing or if the DLP tv's are just better for 3D.

Well I saw My Bloody Valentine in 3D in the theatre when it first came out, I wasn't impressed by the 3D. Well picked up the new Blu-ray yesterday, wow I was blown away it was sharp no ghosting and the 3d gave depth trough out even showed a friend who was amazed. I have a ps3 going to a samsung HL50A650 DLP tv with XpanD x102 glasses. I have read that the older DLP handle the 3d better and after reading comments here I guess it's true. If you have this set up or similar you won't be disappointed.

I was nervous they would run out after reading your post. BB near me had lots of copies and it was after 4pm when I got there. I figure some stores got more then others.

Heavy ghosting for me too on my Sammy PN58c8000. Maybe the worst so far. Pretty nice 3-D effect throughout though. Forgettable film with decent 3-D.

I may have posted this in the wrong place so I'm reposting it with more info here.

Anyone have the new MBV Blu Ray 3D that was a Best Buy exclusive that came out this week?

I just got it and watched the first 15 minutes or so and had lots of shuttering issues with my Samsung glasses that I've never seen before.
I'm new to the 3D TV world as I've only had my Samsung TV over a week but I've not seen this happen with the glasses with the demo disc that came with the 3D Starter kit.
Also, does the room brightness make a difference for these Active Shutter glasses? As I think about it, everything else I've watched has been at night or evening and I did this test during the afternoon in somewhat bright sun light.

Was curious if anyone else has had any issues with this disc...

Looked excellent on my 73" dlp - 3d effect was very cool... cant wait for more real life films to be released.

I want to die in my sleep like grandpa... not kicking and screaming like the people in his car.

How does 3d look in red and blue glasses compared to the much more expensive active shutter glasses?
