Wow. Initially, I would have said that remark doesn't make me feel good about the purchase I just made.

On the other hand, I only paid $11 for it so if I am ultimately disappointed, I won't be ultimately broke.
It was kind of an abrupt reply, we enjoyed it but at the time I didn’t think I would ever watch it again so not a keeper for me. I’m sure you will enjoy it.

It's okay. Post 3D German conversion. A few scenes have great depth and I even jumped a few times. :3dglasses:

I still have to watch: LION KING; ALADDIN; GODZILLA KOTM and others.

Saw the screening today at NYC's Film Forum of 1953's The Sword of Granada AKA El Corazón y la Espada -- Mexico's first 3D feature film. Fun picture with plenty of pop-outs and Katy Jurado is a true Mexican Spitfire. This feature alone makes the forthcoming 3D Rarities 2 blu ray yet another no-brainer for 3D-equipped classic film fans.

Ive been re-watching the Infinty Saga and this weekend I was up to GotG2 and Spiderman Homecoming. Both in 3D. What a difference between the two.

Guardians had great depth and perspective and even some nice pop outs. It looked 3d.

Homecoming looked 2d. Other than 1 or 2 overhead perspective shots, I couldnt tell I was watching it in 3d. Quite disappointing.

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.
The "last gasp" of 3D home entertainment in the U.S. has already come and gone, but for the 3D Film Archives. However, it still seems to be flourishing in Europe, and most of the Disney stuff is region-free (and reasonably-priced)

Did "Sonic" get a 3D theatrical release anywhere?

I feel surprised it's 2D only in the US - I guess. I can't imagine it's 3D somewhere else but nowhere in the DC area!

I don't believe there was any 3D release. I'm guessing they spent so much extra time and money re-doing the CGI for Sonic, that either they didn't want to spend the extra money for a 3D conversion, or they didn't have time to convert it and still make the new release date.

Either that, or they never intended to make a 3D version. I don't know if it was ever a possibility.

Just watched Gemini Man tonight, What a pleasant surprise, we both really liked the movie itself, as for the 120fps I certainly didn’t miss it. Infact I’m a firm Full 3D HD 1080p/24 enthusiast and we had no issues with motion at all.
3D Active brightness was good throughout, Colours popped and fine detail was fantastic especially on close up shots. It was mostly depth and a few more pop outs would have been welcome but overall what a great package ! .
Also I really liked the 1.85:1 aspect ratio and the Dolby atmos was pretty good :thumbs-up-smiley:.
