.. REALLY??? .. that is what you would base your judgement of 3D presentation?

My LG passive set is sharp as a razor with 3D Blu-rays. There's an IMAX opening count-down sequence in Deep Sea 3D and Under The Sea 3D that is crystal-clear where the numbers fly right into your face! AWESOME! (Those two Blu-ray 3Ds are must-haves, BTW.)

Get a better demo, or use your prescription specs with passive clip-ons! LOL

Pulled the trigger this evening and have the Epson 5020UBe projector ordered for the home theater .. actually emailed my wife during the day and asked if I had the opportunity at a bit of a deal, if she enjoyed 3D enough for us to get a new projector .. she responded ".. would enjoy it very much!"

We stopped going to the theaters about nine years ago .. but have gone a couple times in the last two years to see a few select films in 3D to see what we thought (we do not enjoy the theater experience as something always happens, usually to do with inconsiderate patrons, to spoil the experience.) Seeing those films and doing some demos over the last year or so, I really believe 3D needs to be on a larger projection screen (at least for me) and I think the projectors have come down in price and matured now.

Looking forward to getting the projector delivered, hopefully by the end of next week (or early the following at the lastest) and getting it set up to enjoy through Christmas/New Year and beyond ... for those of you with 3D, what are your favorite blu-rays for the 3D experience?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 6, 2012 7:12:12 PM PST
Congrats, Dose!

I recommend you get (not in order of importance):
-Titanic 3D
-Avatar 3D
-IMAX Under The Sea 3D
-IMAX Deep Sea 3D
-Prometheus 3D
-Legend Of The Guardians: Owls Of Ga'Hoole 3D
-Christmas Carol 3D
-Polar Express 3D
-TRON: Legacy 3D
-Madagascar 3 3D

How's these 10 for starters? Cheers!

Elder Dave says:

These would be some of my top picks. I have a bunch more I really enjoyed, but these definitely made me smile with deep satisfaction.

IMAX Hubble 3-D
IMAX Space Station 3-D
IMAX Under the Sea
Triple feature: IMAX Galapagos 3-D, IMAX Into the Deep 3-D, Mummies 3-D
IMAX Ocean Wonderland 3-D
IMAX Deep Sea 3-D
Captain America
I, Robot
3-D Safari in Africa
The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3-D
John Carter 3-D
Tintin 3-D
Carmen in 3-D
Puss in Boots

Enjoy your projector! That's a great way to go, but I guess I'll be with my 55" LG for awhile--at least until glassless 3-D becomes a reality some time in the unforseeable future.

Thanks for the suggestions/recommendations .. I already have a few of those I picked up in the past (Prometheus, Titanic, Tron: Legacy, Hugo, Polar Express, Legend of the Guardians) .. but I haven't picked up any of the IMAX 3D's (have several normal 2D IMAX releases) and I am sure I would enjoy them, so I will look at picking those up in the near future. I also have never picked up any version of Avatar yet as I was waiting for the 3D (though pretty sure another "dip" of a 3D version will come out at some point .. so will probably wait for either a great price on this one or the next release.)

Avengers, Transformers 3, and now Brave, and Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, look real good, too!

If that's your thing: Drive Angry (fun with the buddies and a few cold ones), Resident Evil: Afterlife (awesome out-of-screen native 3D), and Underworld: Awakening (same case as RE:A), are cool 3D picks!

Again, Happy 3D Holidays! ;)

Saw 3D Up and 3 Musketeers yesterday and I would add them both to must see lists as have gone before. Two that I HATED and would recommend to no one were Priest and Cloudy/Meatballs the latter had good 3 d but what a bore!

Elder Dave says:
Three musketeers was fun with good 3-d for sure. I liked Avengers, too, as well as Spider-man. Journey 2 The Mysterious Island looks really good, and if you're in the mood for some Peter Gabriel, I enjoyed Peter Gabriel New Blood Live in London. And for Hitchcock fans (I am one) Dial M For Murder is a kick, even though the film shows some wear, it's still good to see it in its native 3-D.

Posted on Dec 7, 2012 8:04:13 PM PST
I enjoyed the two 3D classic moviees "Dial M for Murder" and "Creature from the Black Lagoon" both of which I purchased from

I tried immediately to get "Creature from the Black Lagoon" in 3-D from Amazon, but could find it only on Amazon UK. Is that where you bought it?

Elder Dave,

Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D stand alone BD is only at Amazon UK.

Elder Dave says:
Thanks a lot, Otter0911. I hope it really does turn out to be "region free" as they advertise. I'll order it from there, then. Thanks again.

Otter0911 says:
Elder Dave,

No prob and yes its region free I own it.

Elder Dave says:
Thanks again, Otter0911. Ordered it and can hardly wait to see this film that I saw in a theater during its original release. Hope they do all the old 3-D's like Kiss Me Kate, House of Wax, It Came From Outer Space, Bwana Devil, etc., etc. Lot of joyful memories here.

Thanks again.

I just saw The Hobbit in 48FPS 3d and was blown away - can't wait to see it again. Has anyone heard whether or not the extended edition bluray will be released in a 3D format, or will that just be 2D? If 3D, do you think there will be a 48FPS version? Will we need special equipment to handle 48FPS at home? Just a few curiosities I have at the moment :)

@The Man

It seems Warners first announced and then retracted a release date for the extended edition of The Hobbit. A number of sources reported that, this one included:

So...though it will probably be released in 3-D (it would be illogical to release it only in 2-D), we don't know when, though the speculation is it will arrive about the time of the second installment. Others may have found newer data on this.

Also, got my copy of Creature From The Black Lagoon in 3-D from Amazon UK, and it is a real kick to see this again. Took me back almost 60 years! Hoping more old original 3-D chestnuts get released!

most movies converted to 3d don't look so great,they are ok, titanic 3d looks fantastic though , but movies shot in 3d usually look great on a 3d tv.

Posted on Dec 19, 2012 8:01:21 PM PST
I enjoyed IRobot 3d, i havnt got to Titanic 3d, i enjoy them even more when they're priced under 20 bucks!

Has it ever been suggested that non-glasses 3D is even possible? I've never read anything that suggests it might be.

Glassesless 3D is being worked on. The issues include resolution and valid viewing angles. Didn't one of the handheld gaming devices have glassesless 3D?

I believe the theory was that every 1080p pixel is actually 9 directed angled pixels, so the tv actually needs 9 times the resolution of a standard 1080p tv.

This of course creates specific viewing angles and distances that the 3d effect will work, zones, if you will.
