I bit on Darkest Hour. Hopefully it will meet my very, very low expectations.

Another $5 disc, back ordered at Amazon:

Step Up Revolution

Surely it's worth $5?

Edit: Looks like they're matching BB

I just bought Hubble 3D to watch with the kids for 17 bucks off ebay from buy.com . Looks like it was around 15 last year but much higher these days. Other than my worry it's some bootleg it may be a good deal.

 

My question is are there any other really great 3D documentaries I could get? I hear Cave of Forgotten Dreams is great but it may be a little too nuanced for the 6 year old and 4 year old.

I've been picking up any 3D titles for cheap no matter how good or bad that I got Step Up Revolution 3D. Not every one's cup of tea, I know. I never saw this one but did enjoy the other Step Up movies good enough to pick this one up.

Along with The Darkest Hour for $4.99, you can't beat the price for the 3D experience.

Just bought The Bubble, Texas Chainsaw, and Tekken: Blood Vengeance. Happy with the 3D on all of them. Still though, it's hard to surpass the fun gimmicky effects on The Mad Magician. Just wish I could get a physical copy of that one as well--but it looks like PSN is still the only way to acquire it. Amazing transfer though, if you're willing to shell out $30 like I did.

I got the same two as well.  It's hard to turn down $5 3D Blus.  I wasn't going to get Step Up originally until I noticed they still had one copy left with slipcover/clear packaging, because it's hard to resist unique packaging as well.

I imported the latest Step Up (5?) 3D BD but haven't had a chance to watch yet. It's really disappointing how more and more 3D releases are getting skipped here in the U.S.

I'm hearing there's a possibility that studios may not be supporting 3D when 4K bluray comes out. It is disappointing. For the current generation of bluray, I'm just going to get anything in 3D as they go on sale.

Worth waiting a month for, then, if it'll come with movie cash.  Hopefully not drop any features from the current release like the UV or DC.

Yeah if it's the 3D version with movie cash I will just wait. Got a family of four who all go see these big summer movies so every bit of movie cash helps, especially with 3D upcharges

Thanks.  Set up the notification for when it comes back for sale.

Then it's another excuse not to get a 4K.

Hoping there's at least a 4k player that can upscale current 3D blurays to 4k. Anyway, I have no plans to be one of the early adopters of 4k. Too pricey early on as is the case for any new technology.

Upsacales are never as good as native. Hopefully, the rumors won't turn out to be true, though (although it seems the bad ones always seem to come true), as 4K and 3-D = mega awesome!

 

The price is coming down. Still some ways to go, but 2 years ago they were $3-4,000, now there are already sets under $1000.

I was excited seeing a number of 4k tv's out with 3D for $1500 or less for a 55in model. It's upsetting if tv manufacturers are providing the hardware to support 4k 3D (although the final specs won't be finalized till 4k blurays finally make its way to market) but the movie studios are saying they won't support it. True, upscaling will never look as impressive as what true 4k 3d is capable of, but if that's the only way to enjoy 3D at home, so be it. It will still look better than 3D on 1080p and if consumers can show more support for the current generation of 3D titles, maybe it can send a message to the studios.

Agreed although I'm a late adopter, being a projector guy. 3-d start up cost were hogi a few years ago. Now I'm all in as the tech is getting more dated. Cannot jump up to 4k projection till far in the future. But it will be worth the wait

I'm a late adopter myself. It's only lately that 3D blurays have been more reasonably priced that I began collecting them. I have no plans to get 4k until the technology is mature. Or if miraculously Star Wars appear on 4K bluray, I would jump on it really quick. :)

Wow thar sucks. The very reason I'm waiting as long as possible. Either way I'm not buying a tv, PJ only. The good stuff belongs in the man cave

Consoleman if you have a family video near by I've been getting my 3d's any where from $2.50 to $10. Good place to milk

Jurassic Park 3D $18 @ Amazon. Just a heads up.

Jurassic Park 3D is back for $17.99 on Amazon.  It doesn't specifically note including Fandango cash, but that doesn't mean it isn't the new packaging that does.  $18 is a good deal either way, so it will be a nice bonus if the movie cash is included.

Have the new movie cash blu's hit retail stores yet? If so it would be worth just having target, best buy, etc. price match Amazon

This now shows up as "Test ASIN" on Amazon, so I don't think this a valid link any longer, plus price went up to $29.99.   Click on the link and you'll see.

Nothing in the reviews about it coming with the movie cash, so if it's coming with it, it's not happened in the last week or two.

The Amazon link is likely for the previous movie cash release that came out before the 3D theatrical release

According to bluray.com, the new Fandango cash release is scheduled for release on May 12. Since that's a Tuesday, I'm betting the new Fandango cash blus are marked for and will hold to that street day release
