I think most people were put off because they couldn't just buy Avatar 3d on the free market at a decent price. I don't blame them. What a hassle to buy something you don't want just for the freeby and then have to try to sell off that item.

The Panasonic exclusive deal was one of the best around. I ended up getting it for free with the 3D glasses, but getting it with a player was even a better deal. I didn't need a new player, but the one that was a model year newer was nicer. So for $107 I got a newer Panasonic player, and Avatar 3D was selling in the $100 range on eBay at the time. That made the Panasonic player the cheapest on the market and far better than ones that would have cost me several times as much. I just sold off the copy of the disc that I didn't need.

Getting it for free with the purchase of a player that was competitively priced was a good deal. Getting the player and selling the disc was a good deal. I can't see why all the negativity about needing to buy Panasonic just because they threw in something extra for free. If you really didn't want Panasonic, you could have gotten a player and sold it off, and still would have gotten the disc at a good price. I imagine that many of the people selling the disc were also selling players with missing bar codes.

^ Haha. It seems like a solid Blu-ray 3D release, however like I said in an earlier post, I think some other 3D Blu-rays look a little better.

Everyone in entitled to their own opinion.

I have a 3d projector with a 120 inch screen and I have to say Avatar 3D is hands down the most impressive 3D movie on Bluray. For a review of the movie, check out Bluray.com which also awarded it 5 stars. Prometheus, Titanic, Hugo and Resident Evil are also good as many have mentioned but nowhere near the quality of Avatar

Thanks paper tiger. This forum is full of people that don't understand that people have different thoughts and opinions. This is really evident by all the no voting that goes on. I just call them cowards.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I have also heard that 3D is better on plasma HDTV's.

My TV is great for 3D, watching Titanic, RE: Afterlife, and others I was blown away. So my 3DTV is quite nice, the better of the Sony's out there, however it was Avatar inparticular which just didn't look as good as other 3D Blu-rays I have. But it is a decent 3D movie presentation, though I should take another look at it as it's been a while since I first watched it in 3D, and everyone else keeps raving about it.

It could have something to do with the fact that my TV is plasma as well. I've read 3D is better on plasma, but I haven't watched something on a 3D LCD yet.

M. Stifler,
Yeah, I guess I can see what you mean about Oskar's comment.

I did not see Avatar 3D in theaters, just on my home setup. I have a Sony 55" LED LCD 3D HDTV, active shutter. Passive is half the resolution, so with Active we'll get an over-all better quality picture. I also have a newer stand alone Sony 3D Blu-ray player.

I'll have to toss Avatar in again, however I put in a few 3D movies to show off my 3D setup to my friends and Avatar simply didn't have the pop that Resident Evil Afterlife had.

It is a great movie thought and I like to watch it in 3D, but honestly I like the Extended Cut of the movie so much more that I rarely watch the theatrical cut, 3D or not.

From Oskar:

"Yay! We can all finally see FernGully in 3D without buying Panasonic!"
"Sorry, but the 3D in avatar is pretty weak."

I was trying to point out the trollish activities of Oskar. I know he's not completely troll, but he does tend to do some trollish things from time to time. (those statements being an example)

There's a reason almost every credited reviewer has Avatar on the top of their 3D list, because it is at the top. Are you watching the 3D on an active or passive 3DTV? I'm on active with all Panasonic gear (PS3 blu-ray) so that could be a difference.

Also, did you see the movie in theater 3d? If so, did you have the same opinion.

Reading though this discussion I can't really see anyone or any statement seeming "trollish".

I have the original Avatar Blu-ray 3D which I received from a Panasonic Blu-ray player purchase and honestly I felt it was a little jolty and inconsistant. I watched it with a few friends and they all said the same thing. Again, so far Titanic looks the best that I have ever seen in home Blu-ray 3D. I also think Hugo, Prometheus and The Adventures of Tin Tin also look quite good. Avatar in 3D does look great, however I do not put it up there as something which I demo 3D to for my friends. For that I would use Titanic, Hugo or Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Again, this is just my opinion. I am not trying to shy away anyone thinking of purchasing Avatar in 3D.

Prometheus looked excellant, but during the dark scenes there was some ghosting. Definitely not as strong as the 3D in lit scenes.

No conniption here. Just seems like the infamous Avatar "internet trolls" have posted what they needed to. That's why I thought I would add my input. Didn't want people who have not seen this movie to be turned off by trolls. (I'm not saying everyone is a troll, people have their own opinions of the movie)

I have it on Blu, but not in 3D. I agree it looks great in blu!

Yes! I have it and I think it looks great. The Nightmare Before Christmas (Three-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy) is a great movie to watch this time of year and Disney did a great job of bringing it to Blu-ray!

I have not seen The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D. Is it really good?

There's a lot of trolling going on in this discussion.....

For the consumers reading this thread actually interested in buying Avatar 3D, the picture quality of the 3D is stunning. It has yet to be topped. If you have seen the movie and liked it, buy it. If you didn't like it, no one is forcing you to buy.

Hahahah....I'm pretty partial to that film myself....

Haha, yeah, I actually just watched it last night. My wife likes to watch it at halloween time, and if I'm going to watch it, I want it in HD. Looked pretty decent.
