I too try to never pay more the $20 for a 3D movie so the key is patience and also be willing to never buy a specific title. I have been waiting for Despicable Me 3D to be $20 and I'm still waiting. Best Buy did have a false sale for it recently for $20 plus it was during upgrade and save but alas they only had one copy of the movie in the entire Southeast if not the whole country and they couldn't order it. There are some 3D blus that never seem to go below $30 anywhere no matter how long they have been available. The cheapest I have ever paid for a new (as opposed to used) 3D full-length movie without coupon or trade-in was $12 for Drive Angry from Amazon.

That $20 is my goal too. There have been exceptions, 2-3 I think. I paid a net of $21 or $22 for Monsters (got in on the coupon).

You can also check eBay. If you don't care about the 2D version or extras you can get just the 3D disc for less than $20, sometimes less than $10. I did this for a few titles that had very little extras and I don't care about the 2D disc.

Hadn't thought of that especially when I already have the 2D version from before I had 3D. Last night I ordered Despicable Me 3D used for $16.60. It is supposed to be the Region Free version so I'll see in a few days.

With perhaps 2-3 exceptions, I've picked up all of my 3D Blu-rays at Best Buy for $20 each or less. For the better part of the past year, they routinely have 25-30 titles on sale every week. They may not be listed in their flyer, but you can always find them on their website. Here's this week's updated sale list (2/24/2013):


http://www.bestbuy.c...pe=listing&gf=y


Even if the store price is different, I've never had a bit of trouble getting a price match with the website. During BB's semi-frequent "upgrade and save" events, this becomes an even better deal if you have an old DVD to trade in, you can get an extra $5 off the sale price.


If you have patience, you can catch nearly every desirable title on sale for $19.99 or less at one point or another.


The list is updated every Sunday. You won't see a dramatic change from week to week (perhaps 2-5 new discs), but every month or so, there has been a big change. The last major change before the current one, was a sale on lots of Disney/Pixar 3D titles for $19.99.


This is in no way meant to be a plug for Best Buy. Truth be told, I'm not a fan. But, if you're looking for an economical way to build your 3D Blu-ray library, I think their weekly sale list is worth a look-see. You can always price match with the store of your choice.

Sure, I have also expanded my 3D collection with $20 or less titles from BB especially during their very big sale before Xmas 2012 but "BB has 20 3D movies for <$20 every week" != "BB will have every 3D release <$20 at some point". It has been the same titles every week for quite a while now and I own all the ones I want. If I really want a 3D title after the release week and willing to pay extra for it, Amazon almost always has a lower normal price than BB charging MSRP but BB has the cheaper price select mainstream titles. Of course I just went into BB yesterday and they had 3 Despicable Me 3D in stock for $19.99 and the one I ordered won't be here until Monday or Tuesday.

Not, unfortunately, Dial M for Murder which continues to be priced quite high everywhere.

Costco has a few of the 3D IMAX titles for $17.99 right now, though that's not as low as they've had them in the past.  I'm pretty sure they were $14.99 at one point last year.

I recommend Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate from the UK, it's cheap on Amazon and it has some of the best live action 3D i have seen, lots of depth and pop out, it has a dubbed 2 channel soundtrack or the original language surround track, unfortunately trying to read subtitles while watching a 3D film is difficult so some might prefer the option of the 2 channel dub which is not so bad as some dub jobs, i always prefer original soundtrack.

Looks like it is less than $21 on Amazon.

 

I will keep it in mind.

 

Right now I have some catching up to do.  Watched LIFE OF PI and though I thought the movie was a little slow, the visuals were quite good.  It will make the Top 22 list.  Need to watch THE HOBBIT in 3D, but with all the migration work ahead, that will take some time.  So, the list is on hold for the moment until I have the opportunity to watch some films.

 

I will probably pick up Flying Swords of Dragon Gate

FYI, there is a region A 3D version of A Turtle's Tale/Sammy's Adventure available from Amazon.ca. The distributor is eOne.

Started buying 3D movies in november last year and I've already collected 62 of them. Yes I'm a fan. :)

 

Some are very good like Hugo and How to Train Your Dragon, some are pretty bad like Clash of the Titans and some were just barely 3D - I, Robot.

 

Looking at Ron's Top 22 there are seven 3D titles on there I haven't seen yet. Unless I'm wrong there are only about 110-120 3D feature films released on Blu-ray so far? Not counting documentaries.

 

I'd love to see more classic 1950's 3D films released such as The Maze and It Came from Outer Space. And some modern ones like Flesh for Frankenstein and SpaceHunter.

This is the only one I find and it's not 3D:
