Jaws 3D might not be coming soon to Bluray 3D but there are some pretty good 3D shark thrills in Bait 3D. I had never heard of this film and bought it blind from Amazon just to fill my 3D addiction. It turns out to be an Australian feature that was shown at the Venice film festival. I don't think it won any awards and probably won't in the future. It was however it was filmed in native 3D and has nice image quality throughout. You can pick it up for cheap and it makes a fun popcorn movie night.

I've heard some pretty good things about this one as well (in a check your brain at the door kind of way) and am seriously thinking about picking it up the next time I place an order from Amazon. At under $20 I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get some mileage out of it.

Got it last week and I have to agree. Not a bad flick for the subject matter and FANTASTIC 3D! Worth the $20.

I never even heard of this film until I read that Sensio will offer it as part of their 3D catalog when they launch their VOD service this fall. Looks pretty decent as far as the 3D goes. I just bought Piranha 3DD this weekend for under $20 and am looking forward to that even after reading all the horrible reviews.

I agree...this one was surprisingly entertaining. They do try to provide some character development so there's a bit of investment as to who becomes lunch. And another unexpectedly fun flick (and Roger Corman's best film since ROCK & ROLL HIGH SCHOOL) is ATTACK OF THE 50' CHEERLEADER. It's available in 3D via EPIX OnDemand.

I just got back from Blockbuster and they have this in stock as a 3D. Hope it isn't a false advertising. Manager said I'm the first to rent it so they don't know if this is for real or not. This year they only got 2 other BR disks in with 3D.

Both the 2D and 3D versions are on a single disc, so you won't have any problem.

True unless they made a special rental version.

But I just finished watching it and it was an unadulterated 3D version. Very rare for Blockbuster. Good 3D movie too! The only thing that was unrealistic was the guy breathing through the long hose. That is physically impossible in real life. He would have been re-breathing his own exhaled air and passed out shortly.

Well, the whole damn ocean crashed in, so there could be more than two. Even Captain Nemo's squid could be floating around somewhere!

After watching this a second time last night, I have come to an undeniable conclusion. This is simply the best "Shark in a Supermarket" movie I've EVER seen.

Definitely "B" movie in terms of acting and plot (enjoyable), but absolutely fantastic 3d! Ranks up there with the best for me with great depth throughout and clearly 3d in mind as it was shot.

I just watched this last night with the girlfriend, she hates these kinds of films, however we really enjoyed watching it, I suspect the great 3D has something to do with it.cool.gif

Despite all the bad reviews I'm seeing online, I can only recommend everyone who has a 3D tv or projector to pick this one up. Some great depth and even has some pop-out moments that a'rent strong but really add to the fun.

"Attention floor clerk. Eat up on aisle 10."

Bait was sheer B-movie fun that took me back to attending drive-ins during the '70s. Even without the very solid 3D (and some extremely good CGI sharks IMO) this would still be a whole lot of mindless fun.
