It depends on which Bolt disc you get. The Sony exclusive is only one disc (3D only, I believe) while the UK version (which is region free, but 3D only) comes with a 2D Blu-ray that is locked to Region B.

I've only seen a bit of Bolt in 3D and it has a good amount of depth and is mostly lacking in any ghosting... it's pretty much a typical early Disney 3D transfer, so it's pretty darn solid, but not exactly the GREATEST that's currently available. I don't know how to get into more specific detail than that.

This is it has very limited 3d in the movie; so much so in fact that they show a green glasses image on screen to give you a warning that a 3d part is coming up and then red glasses show up afterwords to tell you to remove 3d glasses because most of the film isn't in 3d. I'm glad I didn't actually pay for This is it 3d enhanced version or I would be disappointed and unless your able to get it free or dirt cheap I wouldn't bother picking it up solely for it's limited 3d.

Wow. That sucks, the kid likes Bolt and I was hoping to pick it up. Thanks for the info. Are there any other movies we should be watching out for? I'd like to find a list of 2D to 3D conversions to watch out for too. I can deal with the hand drawn ones like Disney.

The exclusives are just for pushing the brand, yes, it sucks. Unlike video games, the consoles have their own developers, but 3D TVs are not movie makers, duh.


It still seems counterintuitive. If I am Joe Average Consumer and go to Best Buy to get a 3D TV, I may take a look at the blu-ray shelf to see what 3D stuff is out there. Thanks to pack ins, there appears to be much less content than is truly available. JA Consumer may just say screw it, I will just buy a cheaper, regular HDTV since there is not a lot of content and wait for more 3D content.

Manufactuers and studios are shooting themselves in the foot.

Also, Sanctum comes out soon, amazon has it listed at 29.99 with a msrp of 49.99 (yeah.. right..) I saw the movie in theaters, and while it was good, I wouldnt pay more than 24.99 to add it to my 3d collection.

I'm sorry, I totally misread the question...

I already answered the Bolt part (a little more than was necessary, I guess) but as for "This Is It", yeah, there are only 3 parts of the movie in 3D (video segments for "Earth Song", "Smooth Criminal" and "Thriller") and they're all converted 3D... and not incredibly well-done, either.

It's definitely not a worthwhile title to own on 3D Blu unless you're a HUGE MJ fan.

Scar 3D is NOT in Blu-ray 3D format (it's old school Anaglyph... Red/Blue probably) as is made obvious by the fact that the cover of the Blu says it has glasses included.

As for having a list of movies that are NOT in full 3D... that'd be much too long of a list to be practical. I, for one, just check out the item on Amazon.com and it's always quite obvious as to whether or not the disc is Anaglyph or Blu-ray 3D. Another tip, remember that if the disc was released before the middle of last year it is in no way a Blu-ray 3D title.

There's also a Wikipedia article ( http://en.wikipedia....ray_3D_releases ) that has a list of what should be all the currently released Blu-ray 3D discs. I'm sure some are missing, but as long as no one vandalizes the page, it should be fairly accurate.

If a tv has 3D comb filter can it do 3D


Not necessarily... a 3D comb filter is just a video processor in the TV that attempts to clean up SD video sources (read: composite, S-video) so they don't look so terrible on an HD display. It's a process that's been around (and advertised on TVs) for over 10 years and has nothing to do with 3D... it's just a cool-sounding term used for marketing HDTVs.

If you want a 3DTV look for one that says it's a 3DTV... it's pretty much as simple as that. (I don't think you need to worry about looking for one of the older TVs that can be converted to use the current 3D format... it might get a little complicated)

Not really, you can get most 3D new releases for $25 their first week. Hell, Drive Angry 3D, which is MUCH better than Saw 3D, is only going to be $20 release week at Best Buy.

Lion King 4-disc 3D/BD/DVD/DC dropped in price from $36.99 to $29.99, so anyone with the $8 coupon locked in will be getting it for $21.99, or less if it drops again.

If people don't see the change in their orders within a few days, email Amazon and let them know they need to change the price on their order.

The 8-disc pack for LK + LK 1.5 + LK 2 hasn't dropped in price and still is $74.99 before coupon.

Picked up a pair of Sony 3D glasses from the Sony Style store in Tampa for $49.99. They probably had about 20 pairs in stock. They also had the color frames (blue & pink) for $69.99. They're clearing them out to make room for the newer rechargeable glasses.

(is this the 2010 version? The included 3D glasses confused me) from UK, will the 3D work on the US machines? I know games work, I tested with the UK version of the Prince of Persia HD collection.

Why not just buy the US 3D?

This is both "real" 3D and "fake" 3D.

Yeah, this seems to be the same as the Blu-ray 3D that comes up on Amazon.co.uk and it apparently also has 2d enabled for the "real" 3D presentation of the film.



As for the region coding, I'm pretty sure that it's locked to Region B and therefore not going to play on a regular North American Blu-ray player or PS3... and testing a PS3 game doesn't matter because all PS3 games are region-free anyway.

If you're interested in Bolt (which I'm guessing you aren't) the UK version of that is Region Free. But for Piranha I'd just go ahead and spend the extra money on the American Region A version... it's definitely going to work on your PS3.

Thanks guys, the UK version of Piranha is cheaper :lol: I probably get it when it's cheaper on Amazon. Interesting that UK's Bolt is region free, oyi, confusing... I believe Bolt is one of the Sony 3D TV exclusives.
