Yikes, 35 beans for Pi. Is it worth that (I confess I haven't seen it)?

I generally like Ang Lee's work without CGI better than with.

It's worth it, and will probably be $5 to $10 cheaper by release day.

Question is, what's this exclusive going to be?

Can't be a steelbook with all the Viva foolishness that happened of recent, so I guess it'll be lenticular cover or exclusive disc?

Exclusive means it's the only retailer to carry it.

We all know what the word exclusive means. However, Best Buy isn't the only retailer that will carry the Life of Pi 3D Blu-ray. That means Best Buy's exclusive will likely take one of the forms aforementioned by Shrike.

Normally, it's been a steelbook/metalbook/ironpack, though they've done past exclusives like the lenticular cover (Frankenweenie), different slipcover (Captain America, Thor), or exclusive additional disc/item.

Guess we'll have to wait until the ad leaks or someone elsewhere posts what it is before release.

I noticed yesterday that Netflix now has 3d content. I haven't tried it yet and there wasn't any "big" movies but it's a nice addition.

It was there for me about 2 months ago and then disappeared. When I played one of them, it wasn't 3D. Maybe it's different now...

If you are looking for a cheap kids movie in 3D Spy Kids 4 is still $10 at Target. It has been that price for a while.

Just an FYI that I ordered this same deal in November and the disc that came was labeled "Not for sale or rental" where the UPC barcode would normally be. I contacted Tiger Direct about it and they said it was out of stock (obviously not the case since they are still selling it) and gave me a full refund. From what I can tell it is the regular 3D Blu Ray, but since it was a gift having it labeled as a promotional copy was a problem.

I saw Dredd at BlockBuster was marked '2D and 3D on one disc!" which is how the retail release is... but the BBV cover was slightly different- like it was the Rental Exclusive packaging.

The lady at the store didn't think it was really in 3D- that they would have removed the 3D disc... when I countered that there wasn't a separate disc, then she thought it was still somehow disabled.

I guess we should have just cracked open a case and checked if it was double sided.

Or I could have dropped $3 to satisfy my curiousity.

Anyone know?

I have it, but honestly haven't put it in yet. However, it isn't double sided unless they have a special version. The disc has art on it, so it can't be double sided. Most 2D/3D-on-one-disc movies just have you select 2D or 3D once you hit "Play."

Rented Dredd from my local Family Video. Like Conan, both 3D and 2D are in the same disk. I'm patiently waiting for Fam Vid to start selling it at $10.

What do steelbooks have to do with Viva? two totally different companies.

Viva was Best Buy's previous supplier of metal cases, so I guess they've changed over to Steelbooks since Viva's no longer allowed to sell cases.

Viva was Disney's supplier. BB has had Steelbooks before.

My understanding is that this is the 3D edition of JP1 and the 2D versions of JP2 & JP3 as well. $45 for a three movie set including on 3D version is not terribly high though I would like to find it a little lower.

Gamer in 3D?!?! Odd choice, but if that is the MSRP, I will pick up at Best Buy the next time they have a $5 Upgrade and Save deal.

From the traileri saw in theaters a few weeks ago, I'd say the 3D conversion is not worth it. I really wanted to like it too.

I was not impressed by the 3D Jurassic Park trailer I saw a few weeks ago in the theater either. I understand it's not going to be as great as it would be if it had been filmed in 3D, but for a blockbuster title, i expected a little more effort and depth put into it. Doen't give me much hope for the sleeper hits like Gamer and Crank. I'm really hoping the 3D Crank blu turns out well, looking forward to that.

AFAIK there isn't a conversion planned. I've only heard about the possibility of 'Crank 3D'... in the same way there were 'Jaws 3D', 'Amityville 3D' and 'Friday the 13th 3D'.
