Many people still seem to think 3d content is extremely limited, hence I I thought it would be interesting to see how many 3d blu-rays those who do have a 3d set up own. I understand there are other ways of getting 3d content (streaming, gaming etc) but I think limiting it would provide for a less convoluted idea of how much content people who are 3d ready actually have and use. It may also be an idea to state when you started buying 3d blu-rays as that will put the number you have into perspective.

If you do not have a 3d setup, can't see 3d or simply hate it please do not respond here as the intention of this thread is not to debate the merits of 3d, rather to simply see how much of one kind of content those who do utilize the tech have.


I currently have forty-three 3d blu-rays and have several I would like to add. The first 3d blu-ray I bought was in October 2010.

62 3D BluRays (once I pick up Man of Steel, hopefully this weekend). I had another 10 or so that I sold as the subject matter just didn't hold my interest.

116 commercial Blu-ray 3D discs and a handful I've shot and edited myself.

I am very selective in my dvd/bluray/3d movie purchases. Just because a movie is in
3d does not mean I run out and buy it.

There was a nice sale on today and I picked up many new blu-rays (and even two dvds eek.gifsmile.gif ), including three 3d blu-rays. I also remembered I am lending four out to a friend. So I now have forty-seven.

I feel I am the same excluding 3d imax documentaries, if I see one at a descent price I always buy it (I honestly have wanted to be able to see this at home for so long and have only once or twice been let down). The same goes for documentaries shoot on 70mm, though their are not all that many of these (excluding imax). I don't think many people buy 3d blu-rays just because they are 3d (outside maybe of when one is first 3d ready at home but even then I think most know several films available in 3d they would like).

That list is in no way complete, I just watched a 3d blu-ray that is not on that list for example (Painted Skin The Resurrection).

Well it does say "Note: All known release dates are for various regions, listing the earliest available". I don't think there is a list that lists every single 3d blu-ray available.

Havent seen either house of wax, or Dial M yet, but love old classic movies, are they worth the 30 dollar pick up price?

That's not very sporting now, is it?

I have about 40. Which I thought was plenty, but I see I am in the minor leagues of this thread.

First ones were Tangled, Tron 2, and Cloudy Meatballs.

Last ones were Iron Man 3 and Epic.

I recently added Jurassic Park/3d, and enjoy it too.
Yes, not sporting but selective.....went into local Blockbusters seeking some bargains, and after scanning the shelves realized how many poor excuses for movies there are......perhaps I am too critical.

I thought my ~25 was too many and was planning on trading a bunch out.

My new policy re: movie ownership is only to have the massively rewatchable movies. The problem has entirely been that its cheaper to buy, watch, and resell than to rent. I'll figure something eventually...

Tangled is a very good movie and fun 3D. I love the story, the music and the voices - and I'm not six years old. biggrin.gif

I love 3D with a purple passion. I have three 3D displays - projector, plasma and a passive LCD that I use to edit 3D from my three 3D camcorders. biggrin.gif

How to train your dragon & The Hobbit.

Should be growing though. I got my wife The Little Mermaid in 3D for Christmas. I asked for Jurassic Park, Avengers, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. We're not big into rewatching movies, so I don't buy many. I'm struggling with kid movies. My wife and I love Despicable ME, Shrek etc, but not enough to buy them, but rental is tough. We tend to just go and see them in the theater. When we have kids, it will make more sense, since kids love watching movies over and over.

Same with the Imax documentaries. I enjoy them, but I wont repeat watch them. That's why I'm excited to get through the Netlix ones.

I can't wait for the used market to pick up. $15 used would be the sweet spot for me to purchase some of these movies.
