Looks like I will be ordering the UK 3D version.

 

Pre-ordered it late last week along with 101 DALMATIANS, which came on Weds. From the UK. Screen Archives and TCM, please take a page out of Amazon.co.uk's book.

Perhaps Lori MacPherson has moved on, but I would encourage BVHE to continue to honor their previous commitment; from Disney's 2011 press release, and I quote:

“As our contemporary library of 3D content continues to grow, and the original artists and filmmakers meticulously 'dimensionalize' their work for release on the Blu-ray 3D format, we will be offering movie-lovers the most incredible in-home entertainment experience they will ever have,” noted Lori MacPherson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. “In addition to offering new releases day-and-date in 3D and further cementing our leadership in the marketplace, we're thrilled that consumers will have the exclusive Blu-ray 3D experience of two of the most celebrated Disney animated features, THE LION KING and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, in their homes.”

I also ordered the 3D UK version.  I'm waiting to see if there's some new information between now and then before cancelling the US version.

All Disney would have to do is remind you  that they are releasing the 3D version before the day-and-date of the 2D version by streaming it on February 25.  They are just very tight lipped about expanding the information about this smaller demographic test on the U.S. infrastructure because of consumer hostility and fears as a concern for greater public arousal.

No that wouldn't cut it for me. The press release is very obviously regarding "Blu-ray 3D", not streaming services. Unless and until the Mouse abandons the BD format entirely it just doesn't fly with me.

So what's the story on the 3D version now? Is the retailer-exclusive 3D release cancelled? The UK release is the only one? Are they holding back the 3D version to try and get people to buy it twice?

No U.S. pre-order for a 3D release at this time.  Frozen 3D U.S. Streaming to begin February 25.  When asked and to my knowledge, Disney is giving no other information to date.

Well I'm still waiting for Rango 3D and haven't bought the 2D version to prevent double dipping (or its like $5).  Hopefully Disney won't do the same thing with Frozen 3D

I'm definitely willing to wait 'em out. I have plenty of other releases to keep me interested in the meantime.


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

If I remember right, Rango was a 2D only theatrical release. :huh:   Don't remember a discussion about a 3D conversion or even better yet would have been a recapture of original elements like Pixar does to recreate their CGI films natively. :3dglasses:

 

Rio is a similar named title that was released in 3D.

Okay, my bad.  I swear Rango was in 3D in the theaters and I find I am not the only one with this delusion.  Weird how so many people can think it was 3D in the theater and it wasn't.  Maybe there was talk of a 3D blu-ray release some time back and that was just a rumor and I converted the rumor to 3D theatrical release but no 3D blu-ray.

Rango would be great in 3D.

Through what streaming service? I don't think iTunes supports 3D yet.

Most likely, VUDU or PSN. Both services support 3D streaming.

Malcolm,

 

I had to laugh when I read what you just posted.

 

Just for the hell of it, I put in Monsters vs. Aliens.

 

Holy !@#$%!

 

There is absolutely no cross-talk to be seen.  

 

Then I put in the other troublemakers, Dial M. For Murder and Hugo.

 

Couldn't see the crosstalk.  Just a hint of ghosting at the end of Hugo.  

Much worse on the Panasonic and LG plasmas.

 

There is something about this Samsung F8500...

 

It really does a better job with 3D than any display I have ever owned.

 

I recently read (might have been posted on HTF) that Panasonic and

Samsung have different ways of encoding their 3D.  It's apparent to

me that Samsung is a miracle-worker when it comes to titles that seem

to have cross-talk related issues on most displays.

 

Sorry to disrupt the thread with this -- will get back on track with Frozen --

but I needed to comment that Malcolm apparently knows what he's talkin' 'bout.

 

Ron, is your Samsung a plasma (I don't want to give up those deep blacks)? What model and size do you use? I might consider a purchase just to see DIAL "M" looking decent for once.

I'm not Ron but that's a Samsung F8500 and it's 64 inch in size, it's being rumoured that Samsung will release a cheaper stripped down version of the F8500 later this year.  It's good to see plasma hasn't been abandoned by the manufacturers just yet.

If you're holding them to that, better first make sure they CAN release them day-date.  What if--let's take a scenario, what if there's a disk problem?--they can't release the 3D?  Do they hold back their studio-tentpole mass-market 2D release that would've constituted one of their year's biggest sellers for the Easter family-video market?

Oh, and guess where I'm going with this one.

 

As pointed out in another thread, there's been rumors that in-house Disney Club retailers have already been told there were manufacturing problems with the 3D disk, and fans have similarly suspected that missing their big day-date rollout would mean a better rolled-out double-dip hype for the 3D version later this year.  If you're still on "They're being mean, greedy, and/or inscrutably plotting!" from last January, get with the program.

 

Through what streaming service? I don't think iTunes supports 3D yet. 

 

Vudu does and already has it for preorder. Possibly PSN Store too (although they don't preorder, so we won't know till then).

Strange, there sure doesn't seem to be a problem with the soft 3D master...

They've been mis-manufacturing more than their fair share of titles (one is too many). Remember that big wave of catalog titles from 2012 and how many had to be postponed due to mastering errors? And those switched shots from The Little Mermaid? I suppose it's better than letting it get out the wrong way.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

Quality control on blu ray seems worse than ever, does no one actually look at these things, to name a few titles that have never been corrected, Hurry Sundown and The Big Country, both stretched and atrocious and Disney are also making mistakes too often.

I don't buy that there are problems with manufacturing the 3D discs.  I would if it had been announced then postponed, not to mention there aren't any problems with the UK release (assuming it ships on time).
