    Jeremy, you're just bitter because you can't see the sailboat; Sorry dude, some people just weren't meant to see the sailboat. [​IMG]

    Jeremy,
    Did you actually freeze fame and stare at the screen? Does it actually work from video?

    It actually DOES work. If I recall correctly, I believe it was a circle, triangle, square and rectangle. Someone please correct me if I am wrong as it has been a while since I did this.

    Jeremy,
    The script likely said sailboat (probably for the schooner line, or maybe because it seems like something that would be portrayed in a magic eye picture), but since you (or at least I) wouldn't really expect someone to actually check, they probably didn't consider finding an actual magic eye of a sailboat a top priority. Out of the dozens of times I've seen the movie, I've just taken their word that it's a sailboat.

    I watched the trailer first and when it came up I paused it and it worked. I have a Toshiba 40H80 but had to move closer than my normal spot. I have very little trouble viewing those 3D pictures from years of taking and viewing 3D photos. I remember when Film Threat ran its cover article on Mallrats and they printed the Magic Eye poster for Mallrats which was nothing more than the title.
