Is there an easy way to search on the website for true 3D Blu Ray's? I've got Tahiti 3D in my queue, but can't really find anything else that I'm interested in. I was hoping that slowly but surely they would start adding some more titles like Tangled and stuff like that.

I have been using Blockbuster Total Access for years and did not know they had any Blu-ray 3D's until coming across this thread. How do you search for them exactly? I searched Blu-ray 3D and a list of titles come up such as Priest, Monster House, etc, but none of them are actually Blu-ray 3D's (just 2D). I did find one or two, but the labeling they use is confusing.

...I did, and made him aware that there IS a demand for 3D Blu-ray discs. The website doesn't always have accurate information regarding the format and availability...your best bet is to call your local store to find out if they stock them. I believe all Total Access members are allowed unlimited in-store exchanges, so there's no additional charge involved. The guy I spoke to was very knowledgeable (YMMV), and was committed to getting more titles in. I just returned "Green Lantern" this afternoon, and I'm looking forward to checking out other titles as soon as they get them in stock.

My store has received any 3D Blu-rays. I asked and the store manager said there is no plans for 3D movies and is not expecting any of them anytime soon (or at least not to his knowledge). Maybe Blockbuster is testing them at certain stores and if they do well then hopefully other stores will get them.

How many Blu-ray 3D's did your store have? Did they just have Pirates and Green Lantern. I sort of wonder if they will get anymore in stock because I think the only reason they have the 3D versions of those 2 movies is because Warner and Disney never sent Blockbuster any copies. The rental availability date for Pirates 4 is in November, but from what I heard Disney gave Blockbuster permission to purchase copies so they can rent. The store manager had to go purchase copies which makes me think that your store manager must have purchased a couple of the 3D combo packs. They had to do the same thing with Green Lantern.

From what I was told by the manager, his store is only allotted enough money to purchase 60 titles at a time, including 3D titles. They had "Tangled" and "Green Lantern", as well as a couple of other titles (I forget the names). He wasn't able to get "Pirates" this time around, but he intends to get it, "Thor" and "Captain America" the next time he orders. The manager mentioned something about the contractual agreements with the movie studios, and from what I gathered they weren't exactly being cooperative as far as the rental market is concerned.

I sort of heard the same thing about the studios. I think Warner is the one that is being tough nails right now and it all has to do with the 90 day window they want to implement.

Interesting - I'll mention this to my local BB (now there are 2 - instead of the 20 we had a couple of years back). May be they will consider doing this.

And it really was Bluray 3d??? If so, was this by mail or in store? I have it in my "Q" (by mail) but was pretty sceptical as to whether it was truly a 3D Bluray although that's what it shows as. Thanks!

Yes - this was true BD 3D and by mail.

Make sure you go to "View all versions" and add the correct version which specifically says 3D in the title to the queue.

BTW, I should note, the current verbiage says "Green Lantern [Blu-ray/DVD] [3D Blu-ray] [Includes Digital Copy]" - slightly different from what I put in the queue and shows as at home - "Green Lantern [Blu-ray] [3D]".

Interesting! I think you are the first person to mention to have actually received the 3D version of Green Lantern. I wonder if this will now be a trend. Lets hope it will be. Perhaps they will get Deathly Hallows part 2 in 3D as well. I am really hoping to see some true 3D movies though. By that I mean something that was actually filmed in 3D or rendered such as Cars 2.

Hope so. I returned the disc to local store (hoping to exchange for games - which apparently is not possible) - and mentioned I actually got a 3D movie. He was surprised as well. Hoping to get atleast the store buy some 3D movies.

Thanks for the reply, appreciate it! Yep, that's the version I have in my queue. Hopefully that's what I'll get!

Anyone who has Blu-ray 3D should send Blockbuster an e-mail. I e-mail them once every 2 months and request it. The more requests the better chance it is they will get more 3D movies.

You can exchange for games, but it has a to be a 99 cent game. They changed their policy on games. Used to be discounted price of $4.99, but games are $1.99 per day or 99 cents per day depending on how long the game has been out.

Yes - from what I could search on BB, I can't see what the current policy is. Also I think it depends on the policy of each store.

Some of the newer movies won't be available on BB online for months to come (Batman not until 1/31/12 !). So, if I can't exchange for games locally - I'll have to subscribe to gamefly.

Yeah, not to derail this thread from 3D, but Blockbuster never has new games available through the by mail program. You always have to end up waiting 3 months after release date. They should add the brand new games, even if there is a slight price increase. Let the customer decide. To be fair, Blockbuster may lose money if they offered the new games upon release date. They would have to purchase way more copies of the games and if they went ahead and did this there for sure would be a price increase.

Well, not deviating too much from 3D - since I was actually trying to rent 3D games - esp. Batman.

Part 2.

Sent a email to Blockbuster today to see whats up. Because in my queue it says "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 [Blu-ray] [3D]" The sleeve I got with the disc says "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 [Blu-ray]", could be a shipping mistake.

You're probably right. I've received my PT 2 disc and it definitely is 3D. (Even says so both on the sleeve and right on the disc!)
