No. Maybe there's something else about BB's edition that's unique, but it's not the 3D.

Via Anchor Bay, Miramax has given 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' a single standard Blu-ray release for both the 3D and 2D versions. It's impossible to purchase one version without getting the other. This three-disc combo pack include the bare-bones 3D Blu-ray (BD-50), a 2D Blu-ray (BD-50) with special features, a DVD copy and a code for an Ultraviolet copy. The Blu-ray discs are Region A locked come stacked atop one another on the right inside panel of this eco-Lite Elite keepcase. The DVD copy is housed on the left inside panel. If you purchase this set early on, you'll get a nice glossy embossed and reflective cardboard slip cover along with it. Aside from unskippable Anchor Bay and Weinstein vanity reels, nothing plays before the animated and music-filled main menu.

Sure enough, I checked Amazon and even though the don't list the 3D version, a customer image confirms it's included with the 2D Blu-ray.

Cool 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' ... On Blu-ray, and in 3D, of course.

Story wise? ...What story, it's in 3D man! ...And excellently done. ...Get those 3D sunglasses out, and enjoy the 3D show, even in passive mode.

I checked Germany (amazon.fazzerland) and googled around, and looked on blu-ray.com, and AFAICT BB is the only one with the classic full gamut of disks and the hokey UVDC crap.

This one:



New! Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Steelbook (Blu-ray+DVD+ UV Digital Copy) (Only @ Best Buy) (Blu-ray 3D) (Only @ Best Buy)

It's at a fairly decent price too!


[MODS: Please allow this link. I kept the price out of it, and it's only to show what may be an exclusive set of discs, as per the discussion].

Yes, it's true that color does not exist in the physical universe: it exists only in the brain. But this doesn't mean that one person can see blue internally as yellow and that another could see it as red. The reactions and recognition of colors is neurological in nature. Once it occurs there isn't yet another evaluation that takes place. Blue looks to me as blue in precisely the same way it does to you, by definition.

If I was wanting to investigate eye strain or passive vs active, I would never think to look at the "Is 3D dead" topic. I think the topics get muddy with useless posts that only value is to increase ones post count. What someone had for dinner last night or the " I agree" posts, just waste space. Again, my apologies for a post that didn't contribute anything of value to the thread.

That being said, I don't think 3D is near dead, but it's not doing great. I do think there are quite a few movies being done in 3D with this latest attempt to revive the format. What can we or this thread do to help things along. I suppose we could see movies in the theater and buy them when they come out on BluRay. I'm not helping much in that respect. I prefer my home environment for movies and rarely see 3D movies in the theater. I find that I rent more than I buy and that probably doesn't help the cause either.
For what it's worth, I think it will be around for quite some time. I can't throw around any production numbers or anything that substantiates my opinions, so my post is of little value. It does however add 1 more to my quest for huge post count
It don't matter @ all; your question was still 100% appropriate and dead on "3D" topic (telescopic).

* Did you have a "3D" question?

Dunno, from 3D igloo country, me.

Just get it; it'll show you that 3D is still very alive and well.

Yes, and so do Target and Wal-Mart (Wal-Mart's is basically DAME 3D packaged with the first film, Best Buy's is a Steelbook, and don't yet know what Target's offering until I pick it up for $18.99!)

Do you guys usually use 2D to 3D converters? Which is the best in your opinion?
I know that they are not very good but some of them are good enough for people who really like 3D.

Speaking for my mid-range $1400 Sony 60R550A, my kids love it. I almost always avoid it, but I have been fascinated at how much it actually does correctly.

Yes, it's true that color does not exist in the physical universe: it exists only in the brain. But this doesn't mean that one person can see blue internally as yellow and that another could see it as red. The reactions and recognition of colors is neurological in nature. Once it occurs there isn't yet another evaluation that takes place. Blue looks to me as blue in precisely the same way it does to you, by definition.

Wow. Deja-vu. :-P

For some flicks the 2D -> 3D conversion works pretty good. ...Or from your 3D BD player or from your 3D HDTV or front projector.
Sure, it's not like the real "3D" thing, but still better than those blue & red cardboard glasses from the fifties.

* I rarely use it myself, but I do occasionally, when I think that a certain 2D Blu-ray film would be interesting to check in 3D conversion.
Some big 3D fans use it much more frequently, like Don Landis I believe. ...I like Don; I learned some good stuff from him, and he is also an inspiration.
...In 3D.

And Tom (tomtastic) might be into it as well.
