Has anyone seen Jumper or Predator in 3d? If so how did it look?

Yeah, I missed that. I also read the review of jumber 3d on Blu-ray.com and the 3d doesn't seem to be very good so I think I'll pass.

Ordered Epic and Predator for $25.50.

 

Not a bad deal at all.

No tax for me (Missouri); not sure about others. I think $25 is the threshold for free shipping. Picked up Abe Lincoln's Vampires and Predator for $25.xx, free shipping.

Looks like we have nothing in the way of 3D deals for Black Friday at at this point.  Perhaps Amazon will come up big at some point, but it's been a bummer to see the ads come in without any deals to this point.

Safe to assume the Disney 3D catalog experiment ended with Little Mermaid? Can't think of a lot else (anything earlier than that would look pretty strange in 3D, though Fantasia might be a fun experiment, and Fantasia 2000 would actually probably be improved with the option of 3D -- at least some segments) that I'd want to see converted, but what they did try it on worked surprisingly well.

I would think Aladdin would have looked good--the scenes with the carpet going through the underground caverns.

I wish they would at least release the 1 converted Star Wars film, and spend the money to convert the others--even if it's just for direct-to-3D BD releases.

I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did--with a name like "FLASH" I expected it to be expired by the end of the first day.

Yeah, true. There are others from the 90s (Tarzan, Mulan, Hercules, even Hunchback) that would do well with 3D, but as B-list (or C-list) catalog titles, they're not worth the effort, I expect. Who knows, they may do it for Aladdin as a pillar title, but I doubt it.

 

Pixar's another consideration. WALL•E and The Incredibles are obviously optimal 3D candidates, but thus far they've passed on converting those. I'd weirdly enjoy seeing Ratatouille in 3D as well. Bug's Life? Meh.

 

Whether or not we see the existing Star Wars trilogies in 3D Blu probably depends largely on how Ep. VII does in theaters. If it reinvigorates the franchise and is a big moneymaker (hard to see how it wouldn't be -- Phantom Menace made a crapload even though it was itself a load of crap), then they'll be looking for any way they can to cash in, including premium 3D editions of the existing films.

There's a lot of work in converting any source into the 3D but film is harder than CGI because it's so difficult to isolate segments with a detailed level of depth. Apparently ALL pixar movies are on the dock to get the conversion as even Cars was recently re-released and Ratatouille is coming after that.

 

I'd believe that Mermaid was the last of the 2D as it was sent out with no fanfare and received mediocre reviews on it's conversion. I'm gettin' it though.

 

As a completist I'd also like to see the Star Wars movies all released in 3D though that's kind sad in it's own way considering how horrible they are (ok, ep 3 wasn't' terrible).

It just bugs me that the episode 1 was already converted but still not released on 3D BD. I hate that there are films that were shown theatrically in 3D that still aren't available--the effort to release them is minimal. Same goes for The Ant Bully and Beowulf--and a few others that are only available on region-locked 3D BD in other countries.

Wow, first no DLNA support & now no 3D?! The PS4 is sounding worse every day. I don't even use my PS3 for gaming so had no plans to "upgrade" anyway.

http://www.stereosco...emperor-3d.html

That'll be an odd one to see done in 3D, though there are certainly lots of scenes that benefit from a wider field of view in a 3D space.  I wonder if it'll be a Criterion release or some other release, as I know that would be a double-dip for me from the Criterion I already have.

 

Yeah, true. There are others from the 90s (Tarzan, Mulan, Hercules, even Hunchback) that would do well with 3D, but as B-list (or C-list) catalog titles, they're not worth the effort, I expect. Who knows, they may do it for Aladdin as a pillar title, but I doubt it.

I think if they finish up the Pixar catalog for 3D titles and call it done, that wouldn't surprise me.  Wall*E and Incredibles would benefit quite a bit from 3D, only if they don't make it look worse in 2D which some titles have gone through.    They just released Cars 1 on 3D, so there's more to go from Pixar.

 

I think Mulan and Hunchback have the possibility to work well in 3D, though Tarzan and Hercules less so. 

 

I thought they had completed Ep 2 for 3D conversion though scrapped it coming out because Ep 1 did so poorly when it was re-released in 3D.  I know I passed on it and from what I read in reviews, it was only worth seeing in 3D if you hadn't seen it before.

 

There's a lot of work in converting any source into the 3D but film is harder than CGI because it's so difficult to isolate segments with a detailed level of depth. Apparently ALL pixar movies are on the dock to get the conversion as even Cars was recently re-released and Ratatouille is coming after that.

As a completist I'd also like to see the Star Wars movies all released in 3D though that's kind sad in it's own way considering how horrible they are (ok, ep 3 wasn't' terrible).

There's plenty of work that gets done in 3D conversion, yes, though I think there's been a lot of work to make it quicker and better since they started back in the days of the Tim Burton Alice In Wonderland movie.  Though, there's been a number of bad post-converted 3D movies to balance out each good one.

 

If the Pixar movies are all slated to get post-converted 3D then I might be double-dipping on some of them, as long as they're not a bad post-conversion.

 

Mermaid was supposed to come out in the theaters though when Monsters Inc did so poorly, they scrapped it. I don't think we'll get any more release-to-theater scenarios for 3D converted movies, though I'll certainly pick them up when released on disc if it's not a terrible job.

 

It just bugs me that the episode 1 was already converted but still not released on 3D BD. I hate that there are films that were shown theatrically in 3D that still aren't available--the effort to release them is minimal. Same goes for The Ant Bully and Beowulf--and a few others that are only available on region-locked 3D BD in other countries.

They may be holding it back for Ep VII release on Star Wars Ep 1 3D.

 

Beowulf wasn't a big seller at the box office nor on disc, so I don't see any big financial reason to bring it to the US.  Same for Ant Bully.

That is pretty damn odd.  They are saying that there is no support for it at launch, so we may get it later.  Very strange.

the IGN article only states no support based on the online user guide.  It has been confirmed there will be a patch (1.5) on launch day allowing for 3D support, there is just no mention of this in the article.

The 1.50 PATCH did NOT fix the 3D Bluray.  I'm a bit bummed out since I disconnected my PS3 and now have no 3D player for my TV.  ugh.  They better get their poop together.

It will be added in a later patch, it was never confirmed for launch day.
