Turtles: Out of the Shadows 3d was really impressive

Both the 3D and Atmos mix were fantastic. Highly recommended. Just skip past the parts where humans are talking, lol, the rest of the movie was worth it. Surprisingly good action flick.

Just checked this out last night in 3D and Atmos. WOWZERS! This was a 3D conversion? It's no surprise to me, the CGI elements in a converted film looking great, but even the live action stuff had...

Hey, I'm not saying that I can easily afford it or anything, but it's a lot better than the $60,000 for the Sony equivalent. Hopefully this means we'll see ~$10,000 4K laser projectors in another...

I understand that it might not ever get down to a reasonable price or that maybe the 3d won't even be that good. But, I feel like Disney's testing the waters with this one (or maybe they just didn't...
