I blame passive. :)

I have had plenty of bad 3D experiences too. 6 years ago the Imax in my area paid their projectionists ~15/hr. They had a union and everything. Then a national player came...

I paid $50 for all three of those (though the Lego 3D was prev viewed and didn't come with anything else).

WAT? Avengers 3D is one of my go to disks.

It sounds like you went opening day and got a seat too close to the screen. I'll never do opening day/weekend/etc ever again.

Kidding? No, I'm not kidding that I have some reservations to buy a $40 disk with 100 year old shorts on it.

Did you read about what it includes? I don't think a single portion of this disk...

Would have been a rental for sure for me.

$40 from YesAsia or $55 from eBay is a big nono for a movie that got 13% on Rottentomatoes.

****. I hated that movie and sold it off as soon as I watched it. But I LOVE the short attached to BH6 (Feast) and wish I would have seen this one.

I thought this would be the best (read: cheapest) way to do this but apparently they won't send to US Addresses? I have bought stuff from ~5 diff Amazon sites before and have never seen that.

There is a $200 difference in the MSRP between the X2000 and the 5008. What does that Marantz have/do to justify that?

I've been leaning towards the X3000 for a while anyways. Now even moreso.
