I knew you were going to like this movie. I find my self wondering what the storyboard sessions were like. They must have had a gas coming up with all the 3D opportunities.

Ron, Glad you enjoyed it! You were literally the first person I thought of when I saw this disc. Strangely, even as a pop-out agnostic viewer I really enjoyed it.

This was truly outstanding for 3D. I can't imagine watching it in 2D ever. I plan on watching it again when D-Box releases the motion codes for it. It will be demo material for sure.:)

Glad you liked it, Ron! I went into this film with zero expectations and I have to say I was blown away by the 3D experience. The creative team somehow managed to take the slimmest of story lines and turn it into a fast-paced, dazzling piece of 3D eye candy. Like you, I have not seen the earlier films, but there is no need. This flick is all about the 3D, and that's really all anyone needs to know. Thanks for the review and a strong recommendation that will hopefully steer other enthusiasts in the direction of this demo quality Blu-ray. Well done!
Gary

I picked this one up, put it on very late one night last week, watched it, and then immediately watched it a second time. It is the new pop-out champion by far! (And given SAMMY'S ADVENTURES, that is saying something.) My only disagreement with Ron is that in my book this 3D Blu-ray should be ranked as #1. AVATAR is of course amazing, but this one beats it.

I have been rather bullish about pulling AVATAR down from the top spot.   I still have to see SAMMY'S ADVENTURES.  It is due here any day now.   That may change the entire scope of the list.

IMHO SAMMY'S ADVENTURES still beats Avatar and Madagascar 3 Europe's Most Wanted for creative use of depth, and in your face 3D.

Let's face it, there's no point in going to the mat on these three. They are all terrific 3D Blu-rays. And I can understand Ron's keeping AVATAR in the #1 spot. After all, if not for AVATAR, I highly doubt we'd be enjoying home theater 3D at all. Reed, "a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." I bought a CAV Laserdisc of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK from you. Long time no hear!

I'm curious. Did anybody else think that Captain DuBois looked like Helena Bonham Carter? Or that the zoo curator who spoke close to the end of the movie looked like Dan Aykroyd? Of course, neither Carter nor Aykroyd did the voice work.

I thought Dubois looked like Susan Sarandon.

Yeah, I get that. In a cartoony, unflattering way.

Watched it last night. Very enjoyable film with the kind of 3D that you see at a Disney World attraction except better and longer.
