Anyone know of any deals on The Croods or Finding Nemo both in 3D?  Been looking at them and the price won't budge below $30.  I have a mental block that I won't pay more than $25 shipped for them.

 

Dunno how it looks on eBay now - but i sold my 3D disc for like $15 shipped, so depends if you care about a full package or not. Could get a decent deal if that's all you care about.

I almost always buy 3D versions nowadays even though I don't own a 3d tv just to do that since its a better deal (ie. Croods 3D was $21 after coupons at Target - 3D went for $15, DVD for $7, digital copies for $8)

The problem with that is I'm sure the vast majority of people posting in the 3D thread actually want the 3D copies. Not a bad idea though.

I think he saying you should look for people selling just the 3d disc since it would be much cheaper.

Oh, hmm, yeah, looks like I misunderstood what they meant.

Is this movie worth a blind buy in 3D if I haven't seen the movie yet? Definitely seems like my kind of movie.

I thought it was fun. Personally, I'll buy anything Guillermo Del Toro makes.

I'm not sure which store Amazon is matching. It has been listed for $45 for awhile.

$8 for a digital copy code? I really need to start selling those, literally never use them.

Went to Best Buy today and was about to buy Pacific Rim 3D for $30. Checked my phone before I went to the register and saw Amazon had the 3D CE for $34.99 so I ordered that instead.

Word of warning: The Pacific Rim CE packaging looks like total garbage. I'm so glad I didn't end up getting it.

That's a couple of customer images showing how awful the thing that holds the discs is.

If giant robots fighting giant monsters is your kind of movie, then you'll love it. It's very well made. I saw it in the theater in 3D and bought the regular 3D edition.

Ugh.  That does look like crap.  I'll pass on that.  Thanks for the information.

I think the movie only did well because of how globally appealing it was. That meant NA was probably not going to get any real attention in the promotion department. Movie is gorgeous though and will probably withstand repeat viewings through spectacle alone.

Having seen the movie, I completely agree with you there.  The movie is spectacular and a visual treat, but that case could use a lot of work.  I'd rather save the extra money and put it towards the action figures if I wanted a collectible from the movie.

Bought the CE for $34.99 on Amazon this morning.  Went back to look at the packaging photos and the price has shot up to $49.99.

Now it's back to the Walmart price match of $44.96.

It was my first blind buy in a long while as I missed it in theaters and wanted to see it in 3D (and neither Netflix or Redbox carry 3D Blus).

Watched it last night and enjoyed it, but didn't love it. If I'd seen it in theaters I'd have waited for a $15 or so deal before buying.

Oh ok, thanks for the input guys. I went ahead and used my $5 cert from Best Buy and had it priced matched from Amazon for $27.99. Ended up paying $25 after tax. Gonna give it a go tonight.

I missed pacific in theaters as well, I really wanted to watch it in on imax, but I just never got around to it. Now I just watched it and holy shit that was an impressive 3D movie, even if you dont end up liking the movie, the 3D picture and audio make it worth purchasing. As for the movie I loved it and will probably give it another go in a few days, I really liked it. One thing I should mention is I am watching this in my living room/home theater room on my 3d projector, the screen is a 110" so its really like your at the movies. But if I would have watched this on a small 50-60" it would not have had the same effect. I don't really think any 3D movie is worth watching unless its on big screen, that's just my opinion.

Best Buy has Jillian's Travels: Africa for $4.99 today.  (Store pickup options available - Ship to store in 5 to 7 days.) 

 

Blu-Ray.com gave it 3 1/2 stars in their review.  Might be a decent one to pick up, if you have kids.

Tried to buy it, but it shows as sold out after going through the whole checkout process.

It looks like a cheap Happy Meal toy from that angle. That may not be the best storage for a disc.

 

I enjoyed the film very very much, but I think I'm going to hold out for a cheaper price on the 3D bluray.

Weird.  I just ordered it (to test to see if it worked) and it had no issues.  Got my order confirmation email already as well.

Did you actually have to mention that, or did you just want to brag about your setup? To most people, 50-60" is actually fairly big. I literally was just watching Pacific Rim on my 55" TV right before I got on the computer, and the 3D looked great.

sorry if it seemed that way, my opinion should have mentioned that I really cannot see great far away with out my glasses, so a big screen is a must for me. I just meant for me personally a 50-60 is to small for me because I would have a hard time focusing and 3d would be a waste. Plus I wanted to point out how I watched the movie, because it definitely was a factor in why I enjoyed it so much, had I watched it on a smaller tv or on my computer it would have not had the same effect.

Good time to score a Disney 3D at B&N, if you're member. 30% off sale, the recently e-mailed 20% off coupon, and the 10% off member discount. I was able to get the Toy Story 3D trilogy for around $50.

Do you guys plan on selling the UV codes that come with the blu-rays?

I think I've only ever watched like one thing via the UV copy (because I was in another room away from my PS3), but I tend to just redeem them into my account rather than try to sell them.

I'd sell the UV codes if I knew where a marketplace was.  Is Ebay pretty much the only game in town, or is there a thread here?

 

Also, for those in the Denver area or have something similar- the Redbox like '5280 flix' has started to rent 3D BDs.  I suggested Pacific Rim on a Saturday, they had it in the machine (and rented to me) on Tuesday.  They're charging $3 a night, which I was overjoyed to pay.

 

If you have smaller rental companies around, it might be worth e-mailing them to see if they will take suggestions.

there's a thread here to sell them:

you can also sell on bluray.com but they tend to go for lower there.  I don't think you can sell them on ebay, some go through but others get pulled
