Your anamorphic lens will work the same for 3D movies as it will for 2D movies. However, if you rely on your OPPO Blu-ray player to do the vertical stretch for you, that might pose an issue. IIRC, the OPPO players cannot perform the stretch on 3D. Personally, I use an external Lumagen processor for that. If that's out of your budget, you may have to resort to doing CIH with the Zoom Method rather than the lens when watching 3D movies.
Do 3d movies come in 2.35? I know avatar didn't, so is normal that they don't?
3D movies come in both 1.85:1 and 2.35:1, the same as 2D movies. In fact, most 3D movies are 2.35:1.
James Cameron has espoused a philosophy that 1.85:1 is better for 3D than 2.35:1, and a few other filmmakers have followed his lead on that. However, many more continue to use 2.35:1, even in 3D.
Any suggestions on PJs I should look at? I've read the modern jvcs are not the greatest anymore so Im sad about that. My budget would be around 5k at most, less would be nice.
JVCs are awesome for 2D, but suck at 3D.
The RS1 is several years old and has been supplanted by several superior models. However, if you're still happy with it, you might consider buying a cheap DLP projector just for 3D and having two projectors in your theater. This is what I wound up doing.
