Watched this last night. The only issue I noticed, which is a significant one, is that the brightness does indeed seem to drop off somewhere in the 40-50 minute area and stays this way for the rest of the film. There is some info in the main blu ray forum Transf 3 thread for anyone interested.

Besides that issue (which is no good), the 3d looked great IMO. It was a bit inconsistent due to the different techniques used, but overall I thought it worked well. The colors seemed fine as did sharpness and detail.

The brightness issue is a bummer though and it is a big enough problem to my eyes that I would choose the 2d version if I were to watch this again. Sure looks like a mistake happened putting this onto disc somewhere in the chain

And the irony that they delayed this 3D version release specifically to perfect it for home viewing! Very, very disappointing.

As for Josh's post, the JVC projectors default to 30 sharpness (not maximum). JVC do this because increased sharpness helps improve the sense of depth. However +15 is sufficient to do this rather than +30.

I'm having color saturation issues as well. None of my other 3D blu rays have the problem. I'm going to tinker with the settings tonight and see if it looks better, but right now it's unwatchable for me.
