The info in POTC: On Stranger Tides indicates that "To watch this movie in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television that comes with active-shutter glasses . . . " I'm a little thick between the ears sometimes = ), but I don't understand why passive glasses aren't mentioned also. Any help out there?

Great question. I just bought a new LG that uses passive glasses and was wondering the same thing. Seems all the 3d movies on Amazon say the same thing. Will these movies work with the passive glasses?

It works fine with passive glasses. Maybe since the Blu ray franchise is Sony and they don't have passive.....?
