I know I was told not to promote bootleg material and I'm not,but anaglyph 3D is in many of the official Blu - ray and DVD' s. Titles like night of the living dead 3D, in Denmark and dual polaroid and anaglyph version is sold on blu- ray, Scars, alternate forms of My bloody valentine , Friday the 13th part 3 ,both Blu- Ray and DVD. This for those 3D fans who don't have a 3D home video set up
The worst anaglyph process involves Red left - green right being viewed with blue- right ,red left glasses cause the green distorts the color and tints of the film ,too greenish. The movie Scars for example ,since the print is unsharp and the color muddy ,add this anaglyph and it's terrible. When you have right image blue tint and red image left with the same glasses the tints and tones of color cinema photography is less distorted. Color code distorts the tints ,tones way,way less. When kino lorber and flicker alley began to put out restored Blu - ray 3D classics they should have include an anaglyph versions for those who did not have Polaroid 3D set up's. This would have increase the 3D home video audience in seeing a 3D classic the way it was meant to be seen ,even though it's not perfect like polaroid. Next year the first dual 3d biu- ray film of the silver age ,Dynasty is being put out next year on home video .This means a larger audience will see it in 3D Although polaroid is the best, the better anaglyph is a good alternate.

Black and white anaglyphs look reasonable in the cinema but everywhere else, in colour or not, they're awful.

3D in the 50s was polarized not anaglyphic so it wasn't meant to be seen as such. See the 3D Film Archive and myths about 3D.

Polar Express, Journey To The Center of The Earth, Coraline, House of Wax, Creature, Alice in Wonderland, all look quite impressive in anaglyph.

I'm curious to see the anaglyph versions of Silent Madness and Dynasty. I probably won't sit through an entire film that way, but I'd like to see what Greg Kintz and company can do with the format. My previous exposure has been the Rhino Comin' at Ya! and the anaglyph blu-ray of Friday the 13th Part 3. Pretty poor in both instances.

Fingers crossed and knocking on wood that my 3-D TV hangs in there for a long time.
