It is more of a niche and not likely to disappear anytime soon. There are always 3D movies available to be seen at the theater and until those disappear, it is hard to think of it as a fad. Hence, those 3D movies will be available for those with 3D capable TV sets. And someone is buying those 3D BRs.

For me, anything that adds to the entertainment "features" of the home theater experience is a good thing. I understand that some folks can't see 3d and others don't care for it. However, there are many that do like 3d. If you don't want/like 3d, that's fine. But, why be so negative? If you don't want/like it, just buy the 2d version. Let those that enjoy the 3d aspect of any given movie have their option. smile.gif

I personally just can"t stand how dark the picture is when watching in 3D. You buy a big bright TV/Projector just to have the brightness cut in half. Don't care for 3D....................but 4K................here I come.biggrin.gif

Oh, no! The "brightness" (or lack thereof) issue strikes back! There are ways around this you guys...especially with big bright TV/PJs!! Keep 3Din'!!!! cool.gif

3d in a big box bright store does a great disservice to 3d. I have never seen a technology demonstrated in such a stupid fashion. I was in a BB a couple of years ago and they had the 3d tvs facing the will of tvs. you could see the reflection of the tvs behind you on the 3d tv.

You would never do that at home...

The concept of watching an enhanced movie experience with more three dimensional aspects is great....it's the reliance on a mid-twentieth century approach to the tech that makes this effort doomed to certain failure.

3D glasses failed in the 1950s, and this thread shows they inevitably are heading for the knick-knack shelf again.

Consider- here on this forum we have people whose passion is for home theatre and the highest tech. We are gadget lovers, film buffs who appreciate new technological marvels.

Yet, throughout the life of is thread,more than 50% don't care about or don't want this creaky, outdated 3D glass dependant return to a fad that failed multiple times over the past 60 years, Just imagine a poll of the regular public who mostly watch reality television.

The reason it's a doomed idea is because having to use the glasses is a clumsy and non-elegant solution at best. They cause actual physical pain to a fair % of users. It is, in my opinion, a poor solution for the problem at hand.

We on the cusp of 3D without glasses. It's close. When that day arrives, approval numbers will be near 100% among techies, instead of in the 40s.

Until that day, 3D is indeed a passing fad, and one I choose to pass on altogether.

You do realize this was a kids movie' right, and not a very good one at that? We aren't talking main stream movie,Hugo, Cars, Shrek, it was no worse in 2d, if Vanessa Hudgens was in the buff, in 3d, would not have helped this movie any, but I would of had a reason to watch it a second time.

I can only say my 4 and 7 year really enjoyed it.

I want it, I will be getting my first projector and my first 3D projector late Dec this year, I was set on getting a 3D TV but I had a quick thought and thinking I can get a larger screen size for less with a projector and pretty much went that route.

Before this I was kinda anti 3D.. but as it stands now I own 3 3D blu-ray movies with a 4th on the way.

i think you are missing my point on purpose..as i said , most 3D movies are just bad movies, they are only 3D so people watch them, i thought i had made that clear ?
that crappy movie was a prime example

my point is, get a better movie, Hugo, Avatar, Transformers, what ever your pleasure, give it a go, it you still don't like 3d , to each his own, but if your judging 3d based on a movie that's just bad, your not really giving 3d a chance.

3d is a terrible waste of R&D dollars... Imagine if 3d didn't exist we may have seen a real push for 4k by now. My 116 inch projector screen is aching for 4k.

If I won the lottery my first purchase would be the Sony 4k. $25000 is a little steep though.

I just upgraded my projector (a projector I really loved) solely because I wanted 3D! I love it. It is so immersive, a whole different experience, at least on a big screen (I don't like it on TVs). It's not something I will use all the time. But I thoroughly enjoy it. I'm discovering IMAX movies, in particular, all over again.

I agree, 3 D on small screens is not worth the fuss. But on a 130 inch screen immersive falls short describing the experience, especially with a good surround sound setup. The glasses are a bother, but the payback is worth it.

Don't care for 3D one bit. In fact, I wish that fad had died in the early 80's with the Jaws movies where you got a free pair of glasses with Jiffy Pop. In all fairness, I "tried" watching a 3D in the local BB, but just couldn't bring myself to having to put on glasses to watch TV. Best thing about 3D was that it drove down the price of my 60" LED.

Comparing this generation of 3D to the generation that gave us Jaws 3D is a terrible mistake. It's more like night and day. You should give it a chance it's a lot better than you would think. And if glasses are a bother I would try passive 3D lighter brighter glasses.

This is light of all the posts here expressing great satisfaction with 3D? Over a week ago I posted about how 3D photography and modern 3D display technology has enabled me to better capture family memories and better present them to family members, both those who were there and those who weren't able to be there. Their reactions have been powerful, much more than I've ever seen with 2D, and that matters a great deal to me with half of my family on one side of the planet and the other half on the other side. But I'm sorry I've derived this value from 3D technology in lieu of you possibly getting 4k earlier, how selfish huh?

Actively hating stuff that other people get value from, that's terrible.

Just thought I would post this here.

I'm on the HT Cruise this week and not only do we have 3D feature movies running each day on the ship, but what really told me 3D has become so common these days is that my next door neighbor stateroom, has a Sony TD- 20 3D camcorder. If 3D is so dead, what are the odds that two people side by side in staterooms have 3D camcorders?

Of course I'm here shooting 3D and have had several people ask me about my twin rig. So I explain it and several of those told me they now have 3D TVs at home and want to get a 3D camcorder.

The problem is quality content and enthusiasts wanting to replicate the theatrical experience at home. I am already hearing enthusiasts ask if there is going to be a native 48fps BD of the Hobbit. Remember even in the theaters the only option for watching the HFR version is in 3D. There was a loud call for a home 3D release of Avatar soon after it was in theaters. They didn't help the home market by keeping it an exclusive for so long. Other than Avatar there haven't been a lot of great 3D titles other than some of the CGI family movies.

If you don't like 3D fine, but there seems to be this attitude around it that if one doesn't like then option shouldn't be available to anyone.

I think you are mistaking a feeling that effort should be put elsewhere for hatred of 3D per se. So many films with poor writing and money going into 3D, projectors with insufficient light, poor intrascene contrast, poor panel alignment and poor stability of light source but hell they are 3D. Enjoy your 3D but don't be upset with those of use who would much much rather see the CE companies putting effort other places.
