I totally agree with you and hate to be a downer but the 3D parade has passed in regards to 3D films being mainstream and home 3D viewing is certainly dead and buried as far as electronic...

Read through all the posts and still not clear if BGF from the UK is actually region free or not. Anyone actually try it on a region A player.

I didn't see this at the theater as I was going to wait and purchase the 3D bluray disc. Wow, really surprised no one in the world gets this movie in 3D for home viewing. I know it flopped but you...

I'm Happy With The 3D Performance On My XBR75 X940D

Other than for the fantastic picture and 4K capability, the main reason I bought the XBR X940D was for the 3D capability. Since TV manufactures seem to have decided to abandon those of us who enjoy...

We just have to hope 3D doesn't die in the minds of the studios so that we have new stuff coming out. (i.e. Disney Home Video) 3D won't die but 3D film production can be stopped due to the whim of...

I passed this one up at the theater because it wasn't in 3D and the fact the rotten acting shown by the young woman in the preview really turned me off. Once again a lousy preview has done a lot to...

I think the fit between VR and 3D is so tight that the two can't really be seperated so it will continue to evolve. Also, unlike the majority of disinterested lazy film directors of 3D films both...

When using the GearVR I feel the feeling of depth on both axises, in front and behind the screen, are comparable to that seen on the active 3D TVs I have owned. I would rate the pop out to be the...

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...

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...
