inetvideo.com also has 3D BR movies for sale. I bought several HDDVD titles from them with no problems. No large discounts on cost yet.

For anyone planning to jump the Netflix train for the Blockbuster 3D train, prepare for slower service. I am on the trial run with Blockbuster and concurrent Netflix subscriber. Both services are for one BR at a time. I was able to watch two Netflix titles to one Blockbuster title. Latest movies of each put in the mail last Saturday. As of noon CST today, Netflix has acknowledged return and then in separate email that next in que is on the way. No response from Blockbuster yet. For anyone that has not switched yet, you may want to consider if limited 3d titles vs slower service is worth the switch. I think I will still make the switch just to save on the monthly cost while keeping the Netflix streaming service.

Turnaround time for Blockbuster depends on how close you are to one of their major mail centers; I usually get a movie every other day or so. The delays come when it's a new release that everyone wants to watch, then it can take up to 3 days.

...or when there is unexpected demand for 3D

I will guess that distance is the problem for me as the status of the first 3 movies were "available".

I watched Green Lantern and Haunting in Salem. Next up is Cave of Forgotten Dreams and, then, Tahiti. Is your trouble w/ availability or finding them? Look at some of the original posts to get a list of the known 3D titles.

It was at least watchable, especially if you are a paranormal fan. Hindsight says not to rent it if you just want to max out your queue with 3D movies like moi.

On a 1-10 scale (1=Worst).I give the movie a 2,the 3d a 5.But it was a filler for 3D usage as there isn't too much available in my area.

Has anybody come across any new 3D titles besides what has been listed so far? I did a check the other day and did not find any additional titles.

BTW, got my YLOD PS3 fixed yesterday and watched Dinosaurs last night. If any one has been patiently waiting, my apologies. Good educational movie w/ nice scenery of Gobi Desert and NM desert.

Ok Guys after following this thread for some time I have decided to join the forum. I have compiled the definitive list of CONFIRMED titles that have been rented through the mail from Blockbuster, as listed in the thread.


Confirmed Stereo 3D Blu-Ray:

Dinosaurs Alive! [Blu-ray 3D]
Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia (IMAX) [Blu-ray 3D]
The Ultimate Wave: Tahiti (IMAX) [Blu-ray 3D]
Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3d Live
IMAX: Mummies - Secrets of the Pharaohs
Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk [3D] [Blu-ray] (2008
Green Lantern [Blu-ray/DVD] [3D Blu-ray] [Includes Digital Copy]
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 [Blu-ray] [3D]
Cave of Forgotten Dreams [2 Discs] [3D/2D] [Blu-ray]
Dolphin Tale [2 Discs] [Includes Digital Copy] [UltraViolet] [3D] [Blu-ray/DVD]

Anaglyph :
The Polar Express: 3-D [Blu-ray] (2004)


Possibles not yet confirmed on here:
Kung Fu Panda 2 [Blu-ray] [3D] (2011)
Sea Rex: Journey to a Prehistoric World 3D [Blu-ray] (2010)
Deep Sea [Blu-ray] (2006)
Glee: The 3D Concert Movie [4 Discs] [Includes Digital Copy] [3D/2D] [Blu-ray/DVD]
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs 3D [2 Discs]
Yogi Bear 3D [3 Discs] [Includes Digital Copy] [2D/3D] [Blu-ray/DVD]
Final Destination 5 [French] [3D] [Blu-ray/DVD]
IMAX: Ultimate G's - Zac's Flying Dream 3D [Blu-ray]
Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds Concert - The 3-D Movie [Blu-ray]
Puss in Boots [Blu-ray/DVD] [Includes Digital Copy] [3D]


Hopefully we can keep this list updated as more titles become available. Also if any of my possible have been confirmed you could update the list.

and lastly some notes on Resident Evil: Afterlife, I own a copy of this movie and both the 2D and 3D versions are on the same disk. my guess is that the rental copies are bulk purchases from the studio with just the 2D version on them, just a guess.

Hopefully this will be a help to more people searching for 3d blu ray rentals and we can keep the list updated, personally im hoping for Hugo in 3d on the 28th

I can confirm Dolphin Tale is available in 3D...the first copy I received was normal Blu-ray but I sent it back and reported it and they sent out the proper Blu-ray 3D version

LOVE the fact that BB has some 3D blurays available.

HATE the fact that although they are practically UNavailable.

They must have 3 copies of each one.

I am going to cancel my subscription. I have had it now for four months and never once have received a big release 3D title even though they are all at the top of my queue. I have been sent every single Imax movie and just last week received Zach's Flying Dream. This was at the very bottom of my list about 11 picks down.

I really gave this a chance but have been left severely disappointed. My money will be better spent with the other 3D rental service on these threads.

Interesting... if all you want is 2-3 rentals per month at the most, that seems like a good way to go. New release rentals for $8 a pop seems too spendy for me... I'd rather just buy the dang thing, personally.

Did you go to "versions"and click on 3D before you sent it to your queue?

I have quite a few 3D entertainment programs uploaded on my channel. These are not just videos of me opening up a new 3D camcorder but actual entertainment, presentations.

I just uploaded another half hour 3D video: The Jeweled Dragon Acrobats


If you have a 3D TV connected to your computer, these YouTube hosted 3D programs can be viewed in SBS with excellent quality. If not even anaglyph can work but often color issues will ruin the story.


Other streaming 3D sites I look at are VuDu and Sony PS3 store's 3D channel. You need a PS3 to get these.

I did. I even checked this thread to verify which movies are available and confirmed by others. It was just that every single time I was sent choices from the bottom of my list and the top ten or so were ignored.

I really went with BB only to rent 3D, but I'll be fine missing out on Smurfs and Yogi for my daughter. Just sucks that in four months I was unable to get one "popular" release of the 15 or so discs they sent me.

The other service is 6 or 8 per movie, but I still feel it's a better deal. Within the first day of signing up, Final Destination 5 is already on its way.

I have been very happy with BB. It's only $9 a month, I receive titles very fast. Yesterday I dropped off a blu-ray at the post office around 4pm. This morning at 9:30am I received an email from BB that Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk has shipped. This will be my second 3D title, The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D was the first. So, maybe I do have to wait a while for the 3D titles, but I'm enjoying others will waiting.

Yeah, you will certainly get the Imax docs fast as if they are normal blu ray movies. I fired through all those within my first two months. It's just getting the actual commercial, blockbuster (Yogi, Smurfs, etc....) releases where I had no luck at all. Didn't get a one in four months.
