Is The Last Airbender 3D as bad as they say it is?  Best Buy just put it on sale for the first time in years (at $12.97).  A few other 3D movie also just went on sale too (Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters, Dolphin Tale, Hugo, Polar Express).

It's a shitty movie with horrible 3D:

In comparison:

Hansel and Gretel (shitty movie with passable 3D):

http://www.blu-ray.c...y/65147/#Review

 

Dolphin Tale (good movie with amazing 3D):

http://www.blu-ray.c...y/32486/#Review

 

Polar Express (great movie with semi-passable 3D):

http://www.blu-ray.c...y/15991/#Review

 

Hugo (amazing movie with passable 3D):

http://www.blu-ray.c...y/35630/#Review

 

I only own Hugo out of the ones above and I have to agree with the review on Blu-Ray.com, as it's reasonable 3D though bad, bad crosstalk. 2D on it is pretty stunning.

I thought the 3d in Hugo was pretty good. Crosstalk has to do with your tv anyway so maybe that hurt your 3d experience.

Yeah, I own Hugo and it was a great movie though I never did watch it in 3D.  I also own Hansel and Gretel but haven't watched it yet.  Will think about getting Polar Express and Dolphin Tale.  Thanks for the reviews!

Our of all of those, I've only seen Hansel & Gretel and The Polar Express, and while I would 100% agree with Hansel & Gretel being a steaming pile of garbage, I think The Polar Express is only ok at best. The story isn't anything amazing, and the animation for the human characters looks weird. Just my two cents.

It's one of maybe two or three movies I have ever walked out on (another being Dragonball Evolution for comparison).

 

It's beyond bad.  It's a middle finger shoved up the ass of everything that was the Legend of Aang.

 

I don't care if they are giving this shit away for free, you still shouldn't bother with it.  I don't care who you are, your time has to be more valuable than that shitstain.

I just bought a new TV, and in the interest of making use of all of it's functionality I checked out Pompeii 3D. The movie was bad, but I was really surprised by how cool the 3D effect was. So, as someone who is new to the 3D scene, I am wondering what are a couple movies with the best 3D effect? Thanks.

Did Big Hero 6 get a 3D release in the US?

San Andreas is showing $13.99 on Best Buy website but not in the store.
They priced matched it for me.

Yep, everyone can thank me.  I haven't bought a 3D movie since Avengers 2 and the one time I actually drive to the store, it drops.  I guess I could brave the crowds for a price match.

BTW, the 3D is pretty good for a post conversion.

I wish they would have these deals for Jurassic World and Terminator but so far, nothing.

Looks like San Andreas 3D was a one day sale.

Yeah, it was Deal of the Day.

 

Honestly, I thought San Andreas was almost as bad as 2012 and even at 9.99, I couldn't buy it.  I can't see myself watching that movie a second time.

Dial M for Murder is $12.99 on Amazon. Out of stock, but still able to order. Cheapest I've ever seen it. Filmed in the '50s, it probably can't compare to modern 3-D, but it's the only time Hitchcock filmed a movie in 3-D, so it's worth owning for historic value alone. The reviews say that, while the film can't compare to the master's classics like Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, and Strangers on a Train, it's still very good.

Target had it for that price with a $10 giftcard, best deal I've seen, you're  a few days to late for that though.

Damn, I waited too long at that one.  I thought Target usually had these promos right up until release date.  Guess I was wrong about that.

It sucks but I'm sure you can get it cheaper being a fox title and waiting for some sort of Foxconnect sale.
