To tell you the truth I was kind of surprised. Pleasantly surprised! I guess the Lucasfilm division gets to make it's own decisions. Sure wish Disney and Disney Home Video would replace some...

Cinderella wasn't coverted to 3D even for it's showings in China. I believe that this was intentional to gauge if no 3D would adversely effect box office. I'm sure to the joy of some 3D hater at...

To bad for us the only numbers that make The Disney Corporation happy is the number of dollars that come through the door. Unfortunately the 3D watching public has not in the opinion of Disney...

Just rewatched the cartoon/short subject "Get A Horse" that is included on the "Frozen" disc and have to say that this mini-movie had the best use of 3D ever in a seven minute cartoon. You can tell...

I've always been amazed that Chris Nolan feels 3D is a gimmick but doesn't think changing aspect ratios throughout a film isn't. I don't mind it but it screams gimmick to me. I'm another one who...

I think Disney has already made up its mind and they are done with 3D. Notice that the new Cinderella was not converted even for the overseas market and the fact that it did great boxoffice worldwide...

I too thought the 3D was well done on this picture and worth seeing in depth. Like many Ridley Scott movies the script could have used more work but the visuals are really stunning.

I have been collecting 3D movies so I have a lot to draw from so I still will watch something in 3D at least once a week. It's getting harder as the blu-ray releases are drying up. I will...

Having played around with my new Samsung Gear VR unit I'm pretty sure the upcoming VR headsets are the evolution of 3D from the failed 3DTV rollout. You can even watch 3D films with the gear on a...

No one ever has been able to match the perfect 3D rendering of the DLP sets. If only they could be brighter they would be perfect. But cross talk wise they are where the bar is set.

I have to agree after seeing the 3D image on the passive LG 79UB9800 79-Inch 4K Ultra HD that it is a step up from the active 3D sets I have owned. With the 4K display and the image doubling of the...

I prefer the 16X9 aspect ratio for viewing 3D at home. I have always felt SAR as a gimmick and it still amazes me that Christopher Nolan has the nerve to call 3D a gimmick while giving a pass to his...

Disney 3D Blu-ray Petition

Someone has put up a Change.org petition for "Release 3D Blu-Ray versions of Disney movies that had a 3D theatrical release". I don't have much hope that Disney cares what 3D consumers think but it...

OMG! You are right! I didn't notice that but it just goes to prove the point that it seems a majority of tech writers has had it out for 3D from the beginning.

A "3D-like effect"

Yes Roger Ebert has gone to his 3Dless reward. It seems the 3D feature is only being retained on the high end TVs. However, all the model information isn't in on the 2015 models.

I'm not sure...

I'm really shocked to read that Disney is going to show the prequels in 3D given Disney's weird 3D policy. We can only hope that the Disney Star Wars division has the same kind of decision making...

I find it odd that certain directors, especially J.J. Abrams, finds that 3D is a gimmick but does not feel that variable aspect ratios are. I don't mind it but it looks to me to be the biggest...
