Thanks for the BRAVE heads up. I locked in my coupon and pre-ordered. Daughter is going to see it tomorrow finally.

I thought HUGO was rather boring...3D was well done, but the movie just did not hold my interest.


I was bored watching Hugo as well. As for Brave, i was going to pre-order from Amazon, but it was tough for me to pass up the $19.99 shipped from Deep Discount.

I preordered Brave from Amazon and DD. I'll just cancel whichever one ends up being more expensive (plus the Amazon order is a nice safety net if DD decides to Fuck us over with cancellations).

I didn't get more than half way into Hugo before I had to pull out. So boring, IMO...

Looks like the Avengers o Amazon dropped to $29.96....should be $25 after the $5 coupon they had for a while...although, my order is not adjusted correctly since I had issues the first time.

The price drop happened on the 9th--mine was adjusted automatically the next day.

Looks like a bunch of $14.99 3D titles at Best Buy next week (perhaps already) using their $5 upgrade and save where you trade in a DVD and get $5 towards BD $9.99 and up. Otherwise $19.99.

Clash of the Titans, How To Train Your Dragon, The Final Destination, Green Lantern, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Kung Fu Panda 2, Legend of the Guardians, Megamind, Puss in Boots, Rio, Three Musketeers, Yogi Bear.

How much cheaper do you think this movie will get?????

I doubt it will see a 19.99 price initially, so I bought. I have no idea if you want to cancel (even though shipping is free, and no tax) what happens with deepdiscountdvd...

Even if you found it for 19.99... if its B&M, your paying tax, and if its amazon - you need to hit 25 for free shipping.. so $23 shipped + no tax for me does it.

FYI on the 3D movies from BB. They are already that price in store and have been for a few weeks. Earlier in the week I picked up a few that I was missing like Puss In Boots for $14.99 with the coupon. All the Shrek 3D blu's are also $19.99 right now if you wanted the collection.

I recently picked up Guardians on a blind buy. What I read is true: it's basically Star Wars with owls. Still fun to watch though, and definitely some excellent use of 3D.

I'm a sucker for corny Disney-like adventure flicks; is Journey any good? Both in terms of 3D and the film itself.

Thanks....Amazon did not adjust mine down by the $5 coupon, since I didn't want to pay with a Gift Card at the time and they added the coupon post purchase. I'm discussing the issue with Amazon and they are giving me the runaround. I hope Best Buy or someone comes through....there has to be some sort of tie-in.

tried to get how to train your dragon at bb for $15 after trade-in, and got shot down because it wasn't the right version. it was with free movie ticket for madagascar that got shot down. maybe i was unlucky, so if you see both versions at your bb, try your luck with free movie ticket first for pricematch by pointing at the ad. they look identical.

kung fu panda 2 with exclusive bb sticker one is $15 after trade-in.

Journey is a goofy fun family movie. It is pure cotton candy, but I enjoyed it.

Guardians is a great movie, and it's absolutely beautiful. I've read great reviews on the 3D as well.

Agree underworld had some awesome pop out and depth. I really hated the movie. I just watched it for the 3d.

I hope not--I really like it. Though two things need to happen or it WILL die. First, they need to get rid of the 3D surcharge in theaters--people are already upset about the ridiculous cost of seeing a movie in the theater, and tacking on yet another $3/ticket for 3D doesn't help.
And secondly, we need more OTA/Cable 3D content. The Olympics is a good start, but we need more. Otherwise, people won't see the value in buying a 3D TV if there is so little content.
Also, if they can find a cheap way to do glasses-less 3D TVs, that would make a huge stride, but I'm not holding my breath for that one any time soon.

I think it will continue predominately in computer animated movies, which overall have seemed to be the ones that have made the best use of it.

Plus, did he think people were NOT going to see Dark Knight Rises just because it wasn't in 3D? Avengers was released in 3D, and was a huge success. Does that totally refute his argument, since he seems to be basing it on the success of one movie that didn't have a 3D release?

IMO, 3D should add to the experience of a movie, not make up for a crappy plot and acting with a few pop out effects. People definitely won't continue to pay the premium to see a 3D version of a movie, if the 3D is executed poorly, or if it adds nothing to the experience of watching the movie. Avatar was a better experience because of 3D. That's how it should be.

3D has never been truly mainstream, and I don't see it becoming so in the foreseeable future. But today's 3D potential quality is far and away the best it's ever been for movies and TV. I'd hate to see it go away again.

3D in theatres dying is fine by me. With glasses, I have to hold the damn things half the time, so I'd rather see it in 2D.
