Just a heads up if anyone cares the new Avatar 3d release is exactly the same as the Panasonic exclusive one. So there's no need to "upgrade" if you already own it.


I care, I care a helluva lot. I've waited 2 years just to watch t because it's such a showpiece in 3D and now I'll obviously have been hit with the triple-dip (assuming I bought the Super BluRay edition which I didn't).

I know it's standard for these absurd rerelease schedules to have new versions of big "franchises" coming ever 8-12 months but this is getting ridiculous.

The 3D Triple pack of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Monster House, and Open season dropped back down to 19.25 in pounds which works out to about 32.50 shipped to the US. This may have been posted before but it had spiked up to 35 pounds so I have been waiting for another drop to this price range and thought I'd share it.

Thanks, I picked 1 up. That's not bad for 11 dollars for each movie. I just hope they are Region Free.

Slightly off topic, but I finally rented my first 3D movie from VUDU with the credit I had. I got Piranha 3DD and I noticed it had some ghosting...really bad in some spots. I only rented the HD version, not the HDX. Is there a noticeable difference between the two?

Bolt & Nightmare Before Christmas are both $19.99 at Best Buy, Coraline is $17.97 too but from what I've read in other forums for those that care the slip is a hit and miss.

I picked up Coraline and Nightmare Before Christmas, I would have picked up Bolt but I was unsure if I had it on 3D or not which I don't. =/

That says 3-disc while the regular release is only 2 discs - a 3D+2D movie-only disc plus DVD (which seems like the original DVD release). I wish they had included the original 2D blu-ray disc instead of the DVD as that was loaded with bonus features. I hope these bare-bones 3D releases like Avatar and I, Robot don't become the trend.

I thought the 3D was well done. No pop-out or wow moments, but depth added to all the scenes. Didn't get that cardboard cutout look that you tend to see on poorly post converted stuff.
One thing to note is that the 3D is 1.78:1 vs OAR of 2.35:1 so sides of original are cropped & extra data added to too & bottom. Though, I thought the opened up picture helped for the 3D by letting you get more immersed.

I've been getting conflicting reports regarding the quality of the 3d for 'l, Robot'... so I think I might hold off.

I stopped in to Best Buy to get a flyer for an 'Abraham Lincoln' pricematch @ Target and noticed the sale price for 'Coraline', but I'll have to go back in to get my $15 back on 'Nightmare'... no biggie!

Are you saying you weren't sure because of the art on the box? If so, this is what it should look like:

Watched both Coraline and Fright Night that I picked up from Best Buy. Coraline was pretty good, definitely one of the better 3D movies I've watched. If you're a fan of Coraline, you should definitely pick up the 3D version. With Fright Night, I noticed the same exact thing others have mentioned which is that there are some sections that are way too dark. Most of the 3D was pretty low-key and not worth writing home about BUT the (slight spoiler)

were some of the best 3D effects I've seen in any movie. A really, really cool effect to see in 3D.

I think I'm gonna have to go back and pick up Nightmare Before Christmas (despite trying to watch my spending and already having the 2D blu ray)...

The Coraline 3D I bought today didn't have a slip, but it was the last copy at my store. I'll keep an eye out in case I have to do a "return/rebuy" for a dumb slipcover.

At least the Nightmare Before Christmas 3D bluray I bought today had a slipcover.

we are 3D fans and love pop up that's why invested in 3D tv and buy relative expensive 3D disc format but this year was almost without Pop out except KungFu Panda2 (whose story sucked) Still best well done 3D movie (with POP) is Resident Evil AfterLife & it was released in 2010
i started to lose hope on 3D future - Even Hobbit `ll be like Hugo ...just depth and 7% POP

IMAX can replace depth very easily over time .

Personally, I'm a big fan of 90% depth/10% "pop" 3D. It feels more immersive when there are the extra layers as opposed to things flying at your face all the time (but there is a time and place for that too - Final Destination, etc.).

Why wouldn't it be? You've never stopped doing something just because you didn't like it or, as in this case, didn't feel it was worth your time?

I'm not exactly sure why you're calling my post out in the first place but when I notice flaws in the depth of a converted movie 5 minutes into said movie I don't tend to hold out much hope for the following 71 minutes and considering it's one of my favorite movies, not to mention one I've seen way too many times to count, I decided to stop watching it.

I put spoiler tags in the post so as to be helpful and not ruin it for anyone who otherwise may not have noticed it.

Other than that I can't possibly think of what else you'd have an issue with my post about. So if that didn't cover it for you, I don't know what to tell you. You may as well click ignore because I'm liable to say something else in the future that you'll find questionable. :lol:

I would've been put off if I had noticed that while watching NBC, but it WAS the first full 3d conversion (afaik) so it's not surprising that it has such issues... it's still much better than 'Clash' and 'Airbender'!

Kind of an off-the-wall question, but I bought Hoodwinked Too a long ways back when it was dirt cheap on Amazon and I finally went to watch it yesterday. I can't get it to play on my PS3.

I tried both the 3D disc and the regular Blu disc. It goes to a black screen before even starting, and checking the details/info it shows it back stuck on Title 49 with a 0:00 counter. I can't skip around or pull up any menus.

Has anyone else had any problems with this movie not working?

I have a feeling your PS3 is just trying to spare you from watching a terrible movie... or, much worse, it's trying to commit suicide from having such a terrible movie inside of it.

But to actually attempt to be helpful: it might be one of those discs that checks for online info, but doesn't actually have any ('Zack and Miri Make a Porno' is the only title I own that has this specific problem)... so you should try disabling online features. I haven't seen anyone else mention this as an issue, but that doesn't mean it can't be the case!

I know it's supposed to be bad, but I figured "why not?"

As far as a fix, I'm not sure how I can, since I can't even get the disc to load. On the PS3 "dash," the movie is recognized by title, but when I select it, it goes black, the TV switches modes, and stays black. I let it sit for about 5 minutes with nothing.

I even thought my PS3 may have been acting up, so I put in Tangled 3D and it started up perfectly fine.

I can try taking the PS3 offline and see if that does anything. Thanks!

EDIT: I disabled the network connection on the PS3 and the movie started up right away. Thanks!
