If you don't care about the artwork and just want the 3d disc, it will save you a few bucks. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was pretty good also.
Cbatc, I was strongly considering LG's 55" E6 model a few months ago since it's their only 3D flatscreen (even with those speakers, which apparently sound great). Next in line was the C6, but it only has 3 HDMI inputs instead of 4, which is puzzling. HOWEVER...I visited other forums and saw the complaints and petitions to LG about the undefeatable "automatic backlight limiter" (ABL) feature on all of their OLEDs and decided to go with the JS8500. I also own several FandangoNow VIDITY titles that I can access much
easier with this TV since USB 3.0 is built in and not external. I had many problems with the SEK-3500 not recognizing the WD Passport drives when plugged in—no problems yet with the JS
If I'm lucky, I may be able to get another awesome deal on a second 8500, but every Samsung I've owned has served me well for several years. Plus, I prefer active 3D to passive (had a passive 2014 Sony model and didn't care for the effect). Seeing passive 3D on an LG OLED is probably incredible and immersive, but the forums I visited also
mentioned burn-in on some models, so...
In other news, this insightful article explains why HDR10+ is very likely to happen for us, among other things — http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php...&id=1504871066
"One important detail that we learned is that HDR10+ can be supported over HDMI 2.0b. HDMI 2.1 is not a requirement, said Paul Williams. This opens the door to firmware updates for existing products."
Yay for updates and future-proofing! Boo for what sounds like...Game of Formats.
