Watch a few episodes of repo games and you will feel really smart.

If anyone has a 3d tv, have you watched the DVD with the 3D conversion, if so what did you think? I thought it looked pretty good IMO

Just got back from watching Titanic. People were as moved by the experience in much the same way as they were in the 90's when I watched it. Its a powerful movie and because it really happened almost 100 years to the day ago, quite an emotional one.

As for the 3D conversion, well it's certainly the best I have seen. Nothing looked bad, let's put it that way. Shots in the subs and looking down into the hole in the wreck where the stairscase used to be are quite stunning. You get a real sense of how far down it is.

Also shots from the very tip of the bow down or from the stern down to the ocean look really good too. Plenty of sense of height. The flying scene for example looks good.

Other shots don't work so well and are a bit flat. This is particularly true where backround objects are out of focus.

Overall though its a good effort and the shots that really do work well make up for the more subtle ones or the ones that don't work.

It's a good movie well worth watching in 3D on the big screen.

...so you are saying it REALLY happened and it's not just a movie So Avatar must be real also.

If only there were simple and easy ways to find information/knowledge.

If this version has a 2D option, I will probably hold my nose and pay the price.

Your flippant remark aside, in my experience a deathly quiet cinema full of people is an exceedingly rare event! One I have only every seen twice, both times during this movie. That says something about how the events shown on screen effect people. My opinion anyway, worth what you paid for it!

I just hope it will be region free. 20th Century Fox are pretty unpredictable regarding region free / locked BRD releases. Living in AUS means that we will probably not get it released until Nov / Dec here so if the US version is RF I am definitely ordering it!

Thanks for the tip. When I saw that the 2D version was included in the deal I preordered it. Also got the $3.00 preorder credit. Thanks again!

I already have the DVD version. With my preorder I will now have 3D Bluray, Bluray and digital copy (for my Ipad). I have watched the DVD version several times and am resisting the 3D theater experience holding out till September for home 3D on my 92" Mitsubishi.

Just got back from seeing it tonight. Was a pretty good conversion, but there was a lot of ghosting in background images. Not sure if it was the movie itself or just my theater.

I originally didn't think I'd be interested in seeing this in 3D, but don't yet have the blu-ray edition of Titanic and I did like the movie, so I've gone ahead and pre-ordered the 3D package from Amazon, and am now beginning to look forward to seeing it.

Titanic is now over 2 billion worldwide. His smug plan to keep his movies at the top is working.
