Dredd was awesome and great translation of the source material. The 3D was done well from what I've heard, as I didn't see it in 3D.

It's a great thrill ride of the movie and not for the weak of stomach as the violence is pretty off the charts. Karl Urban nails it as Dredd.

Probably extremely YMMV, but I picked up the Panasonic Avatar Set (with 2 pairs of 3D glasses) for $20 at Sears.

Does anyone know if Resident Evil Retribution 3D is cheaper than $27.99 anywhere, anytime soon??


If you have a Columbia House account, it can be had for $20.56 shipped ($27.57 - $10/25 coupon 20130105BRT1B + $2.99 shipping)

Hmmm...I got the extended edition, but I'm tempted to get it in 3D.

Anyone found the Toy Story movies for around the $20 each mark? I'm hopefully that they might go on sale during the Upgrade and Save promo at Best Buy, but on the lookout until then.

Went to 3 Best Buys today and not a single copy of Avatar 3D at any of them. And I'm not going to risk ordering it online and not get the slipcover. Still got a few more stores to check.

This might be YMMV, but tonight I picked up the five disc set for Pixar's Up with 3D Blu-ray for $24.99 at the Huber Heights, Ohio Target store. It's marked as a $10 off sale price. Haven't seen it anywhere else for cheaper, myself. Must be in-store only, because I wasn't even able to find a listing for the 3D copy on their website.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to try and run by Target sometime this week to see if that's a universal price drop for a sale or just your local Target.

HDMI 1.4 only shows 3D 1080p video at 24fps.


True!

So it doesn't matter what your TV's refresh rate is.


False!

Obviously, an active TV needs to have a high refresh rate or active 3D doesn't work. A passive TV still needs to be at least 120hz, or else it has do peform pulldown conversion on the 24fps, and who wants that? In either case, your TV's refresh matters. With 24fps at 120hz (2d or passive 3D), each frame is shown 5 times. Or, as was the original question, it might be "smooth motion"ed or some other form of CFI where new 'black magic' frames are inserted betwixt the originals to artificially increase the frame rate.

Rather unfortunate it's going up. I have been to at least 5 best buy stores in the past week in two different stares and cant find a single copy of Dredd. All of the employees say the stores got 5 copies each. Plenty of Frankenweenie to go around though.

Really?! I was waiting until Sunday but it looks like I'll be getting this today then. Worst comes to worse I can just do a return/rebuy tomorrow.

I found it in my local Target, but it took a bit of digging. There was an endcap with a lot of Disney and animated Blu Rays including 2D Up, but not 3D. I looked for itin the animated/kids section with no luck. I then dug around a different square endcap and found two copies on the back side (facing the other DVD/BD racks). It was still on sale so I grabbed a copy!

Is it just me or does Dredd 3D look grainy? Or is it supposed to be like that? Either way I'm enjoying the film.

As I recall, that was the style they went with. I would have easily picked it up for $15, but I'll pass now that the price is going back up.
