    That I can't help with. The MOD program doesn't include slipcovers even if you wanted to order it from the US.

    I'd be real interested in what you think of Gulliver in 3D. I've heard nothing but bad.

    Jack tGK 3D is awesome. I think that was the first 3D I saw with camera shots underwater looking at stuff above that's out of the water. I was like, this is why I love 3D and why doesn't everybody want more of this. 3D just takes us there.

    Earthquake is terrific. saw it as a boy and they had to calm me down and say those only happen in California far away. of course we've had small ones here in the SE part of the US.

    Made On Demand. They started as burner copies but, apparently, they do pressed copies now.

    They normally do these for shows that they think cannot recoup the costs of a wide retail release. They only make as many as they get orders for.

    MOD = Manufactured on Demand (usually just small batches at a time).

    It's encouraging that Universal seems to be trying to keep 3D available. I may cancel my German pre-order of Abominable. Looks like this might be a couple dollars less and will have the English cover.

    I guess if started you mean DVD - then I agree.

    Most all the major studio MOD Bluray (Warner Archive, Sony and Universal) are normally produced/replicated/pressed Blurays just in small batches and usually what appears to be MOD packaging.
    The burned blurays turned out to be far less reliable even in the short run, wouldn't play on many normal players, and with minimal cost savings so very few exist outside of some tiny distributors and super niche titles (FilmDetective titles among a few others). Lionsgate MOD appear to be BDR, at least S2 of Charmed are BDR, the Sony Choice line that lasted about a year and was discontinued after numerous problems. Universal and then Sony later restarted their MOD line with pressed BD produced and distribtuted via Allied Vaughn just like Warner Archive have for nearly 8 years

    Now ya tell me! ;)

    I usually check reviews before I order, but it was so cheap I figured I'd give it a look. If I had to order it solo, I wouldn't have gotten it due to shipping costs, but since I was buying anyway...


    Oh, I think "Earthquake" is a genuinely awful movie, but tremendous nostalgia draws me to it! :D

    Shazam was a terrifically fun film I thought. And the 3D was great too.

    I thought it could have been more effective as a shorter film with a lower stakes villain but I still had fun.

    This is a film like the new Aladdin that seems to elicit the absolute most polar opposite opinions. It seems people really like it and truly hate it with a very small group in the center.

    I thought "Shazam" was weird in terms of tone. Sometimes it'd be light 'n' peppy, but then it had surprisingly terrifying scenes with the villain.

    And I agree with the notion that it was odd Billy as played by Levy seemed so much less mature/younger than Billy as played by Angel. Levy's Billy was 15 going on 7!

    The 3D on "Spider-Man Far From Home" is excellent.
    And I'm happy the case has a slip. Win/Win.

    I just watched Point Break, its a little long in duration, not the best film ever... but it was pretty exciting in places !! and the 3D was also very good, some of the shots from the snowy mountain peaks looking down over made my toes curl!.

    maybe it won't be so bad. Clash of The Titans 3D bad. I really liked the movie. But the Ted Danson version will always be my favorite.

    I won't argue. I won't. I know it's bad. I do. but man oh man oh man I can't look away! I love it so!! I still remember the kid on the bike scene around the power lines. I was already a huge huge fan of emergency and it's really just a big old huge emergency episode.

    In case it hasn't already been listed Dollar General has some 3D titles. $4 each
    Pacific Rim
    Godzilla
    Tarzan

    A few others. I was on my way to a work thing and was late to the work thing looking through that.
