So, anyone plan on getting GAMER in 3D?

EDIT: Updated with review http://bluray.highde...5/gamer_3d.html

I think I am going to get for $10 after coupon at Best Buy!

I am, why not for $15. I've spent that much on lunch today.

I already pre-ordered from best buy back during one of those buy 3 BDs/get $10 GC deals--was going to buy the other 2 things anyway, so $5.

Actually, it was when they sent the free $10 RZ that you had to use w/in 2 days at end of March--still, only $5.

Thought the movie was decent but not a must to add to my collection. If the transfer is done really well, I may consider it. Especially only being $15.

You may want to read the review I posted a few days ago. It has a different aspect ratio for some reason.

Just picked up The Green Hornet for $9.99 from Fry's. 3D and movie were decent but nothing showcase worthy.

Aren't Megamind and Monsters vs Aliens 3D only?

Unless Best Buy received a new version, Megamind is 3D/2D combo blu-ray and DVD.

EDIT: On the back of the case, it says:

This Blu-Ray 3D disc is also able to play in 2D mode.

Though is it 2D playable in a non-3D BD player? Some discs are 3D/2D only in a 3D player and won't play in a non-3D player.

EDIT: The review of the Samsung exclusive version on Blu-Ray.com makes it seem like it can be done on 2D or 3D:

Sorry if this is the wrong place for it but anyone have opinions of How To Train Your Dragon in 3D? I love the film, just wondering how the 3D transfer is.

I enjoyed it, and am still very happy even with a double dip on the title. It's one of the more enjoyable CGI family blurays that my wife, kid and I equally love. We had watched the streaming 3D version on HBO twice before hand, so I had an idea what to expect in terms of the depth and application of 3D (although the streaming compression was no match to the 3d blu's PQ).

This review is pretty accurate IMHO (especially the part about the 3d master eschewing the more gimmicky 3D cliches & affectations). I would add that the 3D really helps flesh-out the physical presence of characters (and their differences)- the 3D also really heightens & improves some of the more emotional sequences and their impact (the first flight comes to mind- as the speed, depth and motion becomes much more immersive and- obviously- a more exhilarating emotional experience).

I heartily recommend the 3D blu to any fan of this film.

I like the Vudu app on the PS3 for checking out the quality of 3D movies. Type "3D" into the search bar and it shows a number of them.

Sometimes typing out the name of the movie will bring up what doesn't show up under the 3D list. They have a handful of them, not all.

Not sure if this was posted on CAG yet or not. Disney has announced a "work-around" for people who want Oz the Great and Powerful in 3D and 2D. As expected, the "work-around" involves you giving Disney more money (+$5.99):

The "workaround" is absurd--I wouldn't mind if it was just 3D/DC if it was the same price or cheaper than the 2D/DVD/DC set (I would never watch the 2D or DVD copies--and most 3D players/TVs should let you watch the 3D version as 2D anyway). But it is already a premium price and they want you to pay more?! Does the 3D disc even contain all of the extras from the 2D version? From that thread it also sounded like they might also offer a similar upgrade to 3D. If that was the case, I might have preordered the 2D version on Amazon when they had the $5 coupon. Unless this drops to $20 or less for release day, I'll just wait for a cheap/used copy.

Damn... that's $2 cheaper than I just paid at Best Buy before the upgrade and save.

I just don't know if I could handle going in there to save $2.....

I'm sure as converting movies gets cheaper AND more people subscribe to 3D, yes, it'll happen. But until 3D picks up more steam, we're a ways off. Don't get me wrong, I think 3D is here to stay, but until autostereoscopic screens/tvs come out (no glasses), it won't have that "it" factor it's so desperately trying for.

Dang missed that. Would have been all over Rise of the Guardians for $15. If anybody got that and didn't like it, I'm willing to trade Amazing Spider-Man or Hotel Transylvania (both 3D) for it.

Anyone find GAMER 3D at Best Buy? I was looking to use U&S coupon, but I didn't find it at one of my BB. Debating if I want to keep looking.
