    Hey

    Here's another bit of early artwork for you - Spy Kids 3D. Dimension Home Video will be releasing it the 24th February next year. No other details at the mo I'm afraid, but I hope it includes some ruddy glasses! Looks like another release might be available the month after as well on the 3rd March although I can't confirm that at the mo. Anyway, here's the artwork:

    I hope this one comes with a NON-3D version available as well, on the same set.

    The DVD will very likely include a flat only version as well as the original, mostly 3-D print. It will come with glasses for sure. Better quality plastic frame glasses (with higher quality lenses) will be available at rental stores or online.

    I loved Spy Kids 1 & 2, but this one was an absolute mess. 3D or not, this is not worth a purchase.

    How dare you. This was one of the best movies of the summer. Fun ride. Worthy of a purchase by anyone...or at least a rental.

    This film made me want to cry, it was so inferior to the other two. Maybe I'll give it another shot on DVD.

    Because of the poor 3-D system this was presented in in theatres (the red/blue anaglyph technique), this didn't look great even in theatres. Having a flat only version on there will avoid people complaining about the limited effectiveness of the anaglyph on their TV; they can simply choose to not watch it.

    Too bad they don't make a field sequential version available also (easily done) as it would be 1000% times better and feature full depth and natural color, but of course then we are getting into making it necessary for the consumer to have special LCD glasses which run $40 or so.

    It would be wrong to make the disc flat only, as the red/blue version is representative of the theatrical presntation, but if they want to put a modified version on there as well, it is Ok with me.

    The red/blue stuff looks much better if you boost your color a bit past normal, and PC monitors will really improve it as well.

    Too bad that SPY KIDS 3-D is how the younger generation will think 3-D is supposed to look. I just returned from seeing 35 of the 50 3-D movies from the 1950's at a California festival, all projected as intended with the clear polarized glasses. The effect was amazing, with full color or normal black and white, no ghosting, etc. The red/blue system with it's blurry, poor color and ghosts is no comparison.

    I did enjoy SPY KIDS 3-D on its own terms, though, and in the context it should be viewed in. I will buy the DVD, but if it was flat only, I would have passed.
