    Just finished the series. I enjoyed this one as much as the last 3. Excellent 3D with things flying at you and coming from you. Great depth in many scenes with wonderful color. The audio was on par with the last 3 in the series. :thumbsup::thumbsup: :3dglasses:

    Also have coming; BIGFOOT JR. and GNOME ALONE.

    "Shrek 4" is the only one with good 3D. The 1st 3 add some depth but that's about it - IMO, the 3D adds next to nothing to the films,

    "Forever After" is way more fun in 3D, though!

    Good to know John and Colin! - I have had this set for quite some time now, but never got around to watching the 4th film.

    Only the 4th movie was released in theaters in 3D, the other 3 were done for Blu-Ray after the fact.

    The first 3 movies were not conversions as such, they were re rendered.

    That was the case for the Toy Story films but not quite the story here. For Shrek 1 at least, they wanted to go back to the original files but they were no longer readable, so they had to convert the finished film to 3D rather than re-rendering.

    Interesting, I've read several accounts online that said they were re rendered, either or though I find they are worth watching over the flat 2D version.

    Glad you agree with this one. nWave really does a great job with their 3D movies -- I guess they've honed some of their skilss from some impressive Nature 3D Large Format films and they're responsible for a number of the 3D/background from the Motion/Ride Simulators

    I think 2 or 3 of their movies are orr have been in the Top 30 OP at one time or another

    Just wish the companies made the items easier to get ahold of

    What's with the swarm of Bigfoot/Yeti movies lately?

    "Smallfoot" last year, "Missing Link" this spring, "Abominable" this fall, "Son of Bigfoot" - I'm perplexed at this trend!

    Totally agree, I’ve asked them on several occasions about easier availability. I would like to buy English versions with slips for my collection. I’m not sure Lionsgate was the best choice after leaving studio canal

    Pre ordered the amazon.it version of Spider-Man Far from home. Looks like it might have a slipcase .

    Think I'll go with the AUS release. a few weeks earlier given Amazon shipping time from Italy to the US, English Covers, and within a few dollars of the cost
    I think I'd probably go with the German 4K/3D otherwise and if the Mysterio alternative cover Steelbook ever stays in stock long enough to order I may yet

    Good call, I just switched from Germany to Australia. I don’t think there was anything in the movie that was cause a translation issue like in Into The Spider-Verse but can’t hurt to play it safe.

    So that’s not the final artwork then ?, I went the extra mile for the AUS spiderverse but hated the film so never watched all of it and sold it on for a loss.

    It is getting annoying having to do this crap more and more often. Infact I think I may cancel and just not bother.

    I don't think that's the final cover, but AUS is often pretty late on those.

    Sanity is a bit easier to order from than JBHiFi and shipping was much faster for me last time. I;m not sure which is more customs friendly for UK though. Sanity removes the 10% GST at checkout instead of having to request it refunded from JB. Sanity shipping was about 1/2 the time and only $1.50AUD more for a single item -- even better if you're making a bigger purchase Sanity shipping is $10AUD for up to 3 or 4 items rather than JB $8.50ea for the first 3-4 different titles (weird the 3 different is substantial higher shipping than 3 of the same title). If you're making a bigger order Sanity often has Promo Code for 10% off $$$ (50/75/150)

    The last I checked 10% of $75AUD code LIFEWORKS10 was active

    AUS rarely has slipcovers though for those that insist upon them

    I just tried to order from Amazon Australia, and got a big red banner saying it will not deliver to Canada or the USA. I’ll stick with my German order.
