Have you not heard of Gravity? That got huge publicity and great reviews by both critics and audiences. I saw it and it was amazing in 3D. Over on the blu-ray forum there are lots of people counting down the days to buy this on 3D blu-ray. Hugo was a great film and looked great in 3D. The Avengers was huge in theatres and blu-ray sales. Pacific Rim didn't do well in theatres for reasons beyond my understanding but in the Pacific Rim thread over on blu-ray.com there are lots of people who say it looks fantastic in 3D on blu-ray. I just bought the Wizard of Oz conversion last month and it looks stunning in 3D. In fact when I went to see Titanic, Pacific Rim, Gravity, and the new Oz film last year, the theatre had a pretty good audience. And I go in the afternoon on the weekend. Plus tickets are expensive, and many people stay home now and wait for the blu-ray. I do that often now. For the price of 2 tickets I can wait 4 months and buy it on 3D blu-ray and watch it as many times as I want on my 3D tv.
The problem is 3D haters think nobody likes 3D just because they don't. They talk like only "5 people" like it, like the above commenter joked. More and more 3D classics are hitting 3D blu-ray. House of Wax came out last year and looks amazing since it was filmed so well in 3D (like most older 50's 3D films were). Amityville 3D came out last year by Shout Factory on 3D blu-ray. Creature from the Black Lagoon and Dial M for Murder. They're working on Kiss Me Kate next. For those that enjoy it, there's lots to be excited about for home 3D. If you don't like it, fine, but there are more fans of this technology than you think. It's not just a gimmick when it's used well. Even as a gimmick it can be fun.
People are upset in here because Vizio is dropping 3D entirely form their entire 2014 lineup. It would be one thing if some models had it and some didn't to lower cost. But they're not even offering any new models with 3D as an option. I have a good selection of 3D blu-rays at this point, as many people do, and I certainly would not buy a new tv if I needed one that didn't support 3D. People buy into this 3D tech and buy 3D blu-rays and now some manufacturers don't even want to bother to support the format already.
