cinema13- I recall seeing it on Redbox page but did not try to rent it. I think I was actually out of the country when it came out. It's gone now so it must not have been very popular rental.

Or maybe a couple folks decided to keep them. (Yikes!)

Yes, if you live in Australia or someplace that is not the U.S. , Canada, or the U.K.

I don't think so since it was never in 3d in theaters

I wish Redbox would do more of these. Got I, Frankenstein and watched it in 3D last night. It was a good movie, but not one I would purchase to watch again. The 3D effects were fantastic though. There were several shots where you looked through a window or had the subject standing in front of a background where you could feel the added depth. I don't know if I would have even enjoyed it as much in 2D.

The sound and colors were also done extremely well.

No luck finding any of the other titles locally, so I guess it's time I check out the 3D rentals website!

Redbox had nothing to do with it. There wasn't a 2D only blu-ray disk. Lionsgate only released it as a 2D/3D on the same disk. They did the same thing with Dredd.

I wish Redbox would do 3D movies. But then again, we still have to tell them that we understand a DVD player won't play a BR disc

It was in 3D overseas.

Yes, I get that. I mean to say that I wish Redbox would include more of these types of discs in their offerings when they are created by the studios.

you'd be surprised at how many people I know that don't know they are two different formats.

Wow, you actually liked the movie ? I was going to rent it, just to check out the 3D, but then saw that it had a 4 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is one of the lowest ratings I've ever seen a movie get. I figured that the acting and story in the movie must just be absolutely awful, and not even worth the 3D effects... Maybe I should just rent it anyways...


Also, so if Redbox has Dredd on Blu Ray, that version has 3D support ? I might rent Dredd if I can find it at a Redbox. I started watching part of it on Netflix or Amazon or something, and it seemed kinda decent...

I began using the discounted disks at Red Box. I was advised here that I should begin using them so I did. While they email you a nice invoice with the discount and credits listed, they are charging my CC the full amount. I wonder if others have had this problem. It's not much money but it seems if they offer a discount and confirm it by email, then they should honor the coupons and discounted pricing. Guess I need to call them.

Last time my experience with their CSR's was not too good. Ended up having to ask for supervisor who equally was no help. Ended up getting charged double for disks I only watched for one day.

Rent one, get the second one for $.50 off is an example. They had the second one for $1.00 off a couple weeks ago. It shows up at checkout but they have the offer advertised on the home page.

I see. Anything like that I use always has a promo code associated with it. But I use the ones I get in my email. And they take it off before checkout.

Rotten Tomatoes is retarded.

I liked this movie too. It was nothing spectacular, just a solid movie. I was stunned to see the 3D words on the disc, I thought it was some kind of an error, them printing the 3D disc face on the regular, normally castrated rental version. But then my PJ started whirring and I realized it was indeed 3D.

Generally I don't even bother with post-3D-converted movies, but this one was actually ok. It still looked, well, converted, not fooling anyone, but it was pretty good, definitely worth checking out.
