    I had a feeling it was Native. Not sure about 120 FPS though, I’m happy with 24fps. I expect so,e of you will get your copies before I watch this, it will be next Friday before I get to it.

    We just watched Abominable / Everest. Not the best dreamworks movie and the first part took some getting into story wise, however it picked up nicely into a sweet little story, a few places I had a lump in my throat. The 3D was good but I would of liked it stronger and more pop out would of been great.

    Gemini Man is one of the few 3D titles I'm passing on, since it won't be at the right frame rate. Saw it at the theater since I knew I couldn't see it properly at home.

    Watched The Addams Family a couple nights ago. Too bad that this is not available in 3D anywhere, as it seemed like it would be a great 3D experience. There were a couple times when it almost looked 3D even on the flat presentation.

    Seems like we might be at the last gasp of 3D, as several recent films that were 3D in theaters have not seemed to appear in 3D blu-ray anywhere in the world. I thought we might see a few Asian exclusives for a while, but perhaps this is not to be.

    Oh, well. I still have a bunch of 3D's that I have not even watched yet, so that'll keep me busy for a while. And there are still other titles available I can pick up, especially the documentary/nature titles. Still a few recent Disney titles that I need to get from UK, too.

    Anyone found a good price on Minuscule 3D? It’s about ants and no seller on Amazon UK ships to the US.

    Amazon France and German have theirs for 10EUR. French shipping is of course far more expensive. German item is around $12 shipped.

    I'm not 100% sure on the region coding though.

    The AUS item is definitely region free, but is difficult to find in stock. JBHiFi has been OOS for a long time and Sanity lists it OOS/ships in 10-20 days. I ordered mine from Sanity (backordered then as well) last year along with SM-Far From Home as a preorder and a couple other items. Miniscule did finally ship after 2 months though I'm not sure if it took that long to come back into stock or they just held things for my preorder. If you aren't in a hurry and want the English cover, then Sanity is dirt cheap - 6.99AUD-10%GST + 10AUD shipping so around $10US. If you are interested in some other AUD titles, usually you can get up to 4 singles for $10AUD

    HTTYD3 3d is also $10AUD and quite a few of the 3D title are under 2 for 40 or 3 for 30 sales

    A movie called Battle for Terra has slipped through my net all this time, I’m sure I’ve heard of the title but perhaps I dismissed it for that reason. Anyway I just watched a trailer and didn’t realise it was animated, also it looks like it should have excellent 3D so ordered a used copy from amazon uk but it’s a German seller for £10.31 delivered.
    Any thoughts on what I can expect ?.

    Shed a couple tears on this one John but I found it to have a bit of boring start.

    Amazon US has Minuscule for $28, yikes. I’m not familiar with Sanity, do you have a link?

    Probably the second most popular AUS site for importing. I find their shipping to be cheaper (about a week after dispatch, but no tracking which seems to be an AUS thing) and faster than JBHiFi though JB usually has/had better sales for a long time. Unlike JB which requires you to contact them after shipment/charge to refund GST, Sanity removes the 10% GST at time of order. Sanity shipping is based on weight and lowest level is $9.95 which I think is around 400-500 gms (sometime 4 items, sometimes 3 is depending of the number of discs and packaging of the items), then jumps to $25 up to ?2kg (10-12 basic singles)

    Sanity often has some extra $10 or 10% discount codes, but usually on orders of $50/75/100/150 -- the last $50/75 I'm aware of ended last month and the only code I know of now is a 10% off 150+. The last I checked the exchange rate was around 0.70AUD/USD

    That's pretty much what I thought. Kind of a slow start, but once they leave the city, it's wonderful.

    Okay. My interest is piqued. Where do I shell out my money to get this?

    EDIT: Found it. I should just go back and read. :)

    If I figured this out right it only cost me $11 to have Miniscule sent to me, shipped from Australia.

    Like many discs (esp AUS) it's labelled B, but it's Region Free. I think Paul Hillenbrand may have the AUS disc. I thought he was the first that reported it region free. The Bonus material is 1080/50 so you'll need a compatible player -- most US player other than a pre-PS4 Sony

    The feature is pretty much language free,
    The extras are only in French, but the AUS disc is subtitled in English - non optional subtitles. There are 3 or 4 trailers and numerous 2-4 minute long bonus "Making Of" segments and a couple short Director Introductions. A bit over 30 minutes total extras

    It's honestly pretty fun gorgeous little film even in 2D

    Single Audio track DTS-HD Master 5.1-- technically French, but only makes a difference for the extras
    No optional Subtitles


    That's about right though I will emphasize it might be awhile. I was honestly expecting mine to be cancelled last fall. Ordered in late August, but it came into stock right about the time Far From Home released Oct 23 either by luck or design so all 4 items I ordered shipped together. I was actually on the verge of cancelling the order to make sure my other discs shipped on time -- glad I waited

    7- 0.70GST + 9.95 shipping -- 16.24AUD (approx 0.67 exchange) 10.88 if you have a CC with no FOREX fee,
