This does seem to be a few dollars cheaper than Amazon.uk.co. I already have all the disks except for one so I couldn't do the BOGO deal at Amazon. This site lets you pick a non 3D Disney disc as well for the BOGO so its better for the folks who only need one 3D disk.

Pixels 3D currently at Best Buy for $16.99.

My personal opinion is that it's worth it, but I seem to be in the minority of those that thought the movie was a pretty fun ride.

Regardless of opinions on the film itself, the AV presentation is stunning (despite the Atmos track only being on the 2D disk, which is why I'll be remuxing my copy to remedy this).

The 3D is above average in this. The intelligence is below average. The humor is, well, for Adam Sandler, about average I'd say. So not a bad deal for $16.99 imho.

The Walk 3D

I picked up The Walk 3D at Target - 1/5/15

For $19.99

Each Target store only has 2 to 5 3D copies..... & the sale seems to be in store only

It comes with a very nice lenticular slip

Several other 3D Blu Rays at this same price ($12.99) at Best Buy this weekend. Picked up some I'd originally passed on, incl. The Great Gatsby and Dolphin Tale. There were a few others, all Warner Bros. titles I think.

Watched Dolphin Tale and was dissapointed with the 3D rendering, even though it was shot native. Problem wasn't depth but retinal rivalry; no adjustments were made to balance lighting and reflection disparities between the left and right eyes. I originally passed on The Great Gatsby due to misgivings about the director's stylistic choices for the music (hip-hop and rap styled music married to 1920's Jazz era decadence and culture just wasn't doing it for me). After previewing quite a few scenes I'm really glad I picked it up now. The cinematography and visual style is beautiful and some of the best 3D I've seen since Hugo. Just wish it had been framed at 1.78:1 or similar for 3D but I respect the director's intent nonetheless.

Anyhow, some good deals on older 3D Blus for those of you/us missing some of the older titles in your collection.

Not sure if this really qualifies as a "deal" but considering Amazon and Best Buy both raised their price on the Everest 3D Blu Ray to $29.99, Target's $22.99 (as of this writing) is at least some improvement over that.

Stalingrad is a Russian movie of over 2 hours, filmed in 3D direct. Rather long movie of over 2 hours. Had spent 3 days to watch bit by bit. It is not a real war movie, but the fighting and the ruins that filmed are good (in my opinion). The story emphasis on love among the Russian soldiers and a 18 years young girl resident who refused to leave the building when the German was attacking that building. It also added in another love affair between 1 German Soldier and a Russian lady at another building. The story has a lot of argument, but the war scenes are great (even I watched at 2D. Will watch it in 3D later). It is a sale at BestBuy for less than US$10. No brainer to pick it up to your 3D collection

Be careful if you're in the US. A lot of the titles on Zavvi are region B only.

I went there to take advantage of the Disney deal and very nearly purchased 2 region B titles. Fortunately I checked each title's product details page before I placed the order.

As many people here will tell you, the description pages are oftentimes not that accurate. Check through this forum and others to see if the 3D Blu-Rays are region free. I can't speak from experience but most Disney UK movies are claimed to be region free.

I have several Disney 3D movies from Amazon UK that are region free although the Amazon UK page(s) claim they are region B.

Your mileage may vary

I was actually shopping the Disney 2D titles, not the 3D ones. They're running a deal on those too. And as the old adage goes, better to be safe than sorry. It would be nice if there was a definitive guide to region codes we could check to be sure. There's one here, but I don't think it's been updated in awhile.

I recently found this website http://regionfreemovies.com/
It looks pretty much up to date.

Cbatc.........ZAVVI....also promote Disney of 2 movies at GBP 18.... i.e. 18 great British pounds for 2 movies. I ordered 5 movies yesterday..........all zone free and 3d movies.
Maleficent; Big hero 6, Monster Inc; Capt American CIVIL WAR; Alice with looking glasses.
Just about US$10 per each movie is a real bargain. Capt Amerian is GBP 12........approx. US$14.....STILL CHEAPER than buying in usa VIA AMAZON UK or AMAZON USA. AMAZON does not hv 3D version with 2D in one package most of the time too.

Go Hastings currently offer 35% off of 3 or more used BDs including 3d. There are a ton of Marvel movies available at really attractive pricing (many sub $10).

To get the discount use promo code: confucius

I wish you all luck. They go fast. I'll keep you updated with more deals as I find them.

Coolhand.........can you advise the website addresses where you bought used 3d BR movies from? Tks.

Coolhand.......no need to answer above question. I got them on Zavvi yesterday........at great promotion of JUST GBP18 for both movies.........i.e. BGP 9 per movie in 3d, zone free. They are still available.......any one want these 2 movies........go and order online at Zavvi now.......before they sold out. Very high rating of these 2 movies from viewer/owner.

From ZAVVI.COM.........each movie's zone (i.e. A ; B ; or Free) will show up, by clicking the ICON of Movie details. at the movie's DETAIL column. We know if the movie is necessary a universal BR Player or not.........USA buyers will rest for sure what bought is ZONE FREE or A zone and don't buy Zone B for their Zone A player.

Something I discovered recently is that if you are only ripping your movies to hard drives and don't plan on watching the movie from the physical disc then the region code doesn't matter. Most ripping software will strip out the region code resulting in a region free digital file.
