    I think Panasonic still have an exclusive on it for another year, it's only the theatrical version too, so whether they'll bother with putting out the extended version once it's generally available is anyones guess.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if they put the theatrical out first and then put the extended version out later, to make people double dip:)

    It's a Best Buy exclusive in the US (Amazon.com is third party sellers only). It's available in Canada as a general release so Amazon.ca is probably the cheapest around.

    Is Region Free according to HD Movie Source IMAX:Hubble 3D (Blu-ray 3D)(Region Free:ABC)
    It's also a Warner release, so I'm (almost) certain it's region free.

    I think exclusive paramount deal runs out in Feb, so pretty soon after that I would have thought.

    Saw HP7.2 at cinema is 3D the other night, 3D was awful, no memorable effect at all, even saw ghosting on left of screen - maybe as we sat off centre. I saw HP5 in 3D at the imax (only last 30 mins) and that was much better.

    Trying to charge you more for poor converts is going to kill 3D before it gets going. Most people will see that and think 3D isn't worth the extra cost. From now on no more 3D converts for me (not sure there was a choice for us though, last showing I think was only 3D).

    The 3D quality on a good 3D tv is fantastic, much better than at the pictures.:)

    Yes of a good 3D film, avatar is brilliant home or cinema, but 3D converts look average in either location - I watched gulliver's at home, I could see some depth in there but not really worth the effort to convert. I wish they would just stop doing it.

    I don't understand the question. Do you mean "films that are filmed in anaglyph 3D"? If so, I don't think any have been shot like that (though there have been films released in anaglyph 3d on DVD & Blu-ray).

    Or do you mean films that are shot with an 'anamorphic lens' (ie. one that squashes the image so it can be un-squashed later for viewing)? If so, I think in some ways that would make it a bit harder to convert.

    Watched my first 3D film last night. She picked Tangled.

    Very very impressive. I think I'm going to enjoy 3D a lot.

    tangled is top draw 3D, but looking at your list you'd picked pretty good 3D films there - not seen G&J yet. I'd give DMe a watch and don't miss end credits they are really fun.

    Yes, I have been reading reviews before deciding what to buy.

    Got Tron on the way too.

    So which of the big new releases are going to be good in 3D?

    Looking forward to Transformers 3, Green Hornet and POTC 4.

    I've heard Thor is one to miss in 3D??

    Haven't seen Green Hornet, but I'd say both Transformers and PotC are both worth avoiding, 3D or not:D

    Drive Angry looks pretty good though.

    Tron was a let down as a movie, but the 3D is ace. :thumbsup:

    I wasn't impressed by tron in 3D, can't really remember why now (sold it), but I was expecting better, I think full screen bits were ok though.

    I'd say PoTC and T3 are ones to watch, thor sounds poor 3D, as was hornet, do you mean green lantern? Its annoying you can't yet rent 3D films on lovefilm, I'll prob buy T3 but PoTC4 doesnt sound great film. Anything disney release though seems to look great.

    I think RE4 though sounds good, and a rare live action 3D flick, I'll be getting when hits £10.

    Jealous in the U.S.....that rhymes ;)

    Of your 3D collection that is.

    Thor was pretty decent in 3D IMO.

    Saw Captain America 3D in big screen and didn't do anything for me. I understand was a con
    verted.

    Can't wait for Immortals 3D this November.

    Yes, Green Lantern. Too many green films :D

    Might have to pre order POTC and Transformers 3.

    tangled is a very good 3D film. the butterfly appearing in the middle of my living room and flying into the tv was very impressive.

    its not April 1st yet m8, dotm was absolutely terrible and critically got panned (even worse than POTC3, and ROTF and thats saying something), couldn't wait to get out the cinema, along with pretty much everyone else from the sounds of it, 3d wasnt that great either apart from the hand gliding bit, cant polish a turd!

    Watched Rio 3d last night, good 3d on that though, good depth a bit of popout effects but not too many, good sound track, story was pretty lame though, even for kids.

    I really liked Dark of the Moon ha. animated films in 3D are well and good but I loved the live action aspect of Dark of the Moon. I can understand POTC3 getting slated as it wasn't even filmed in 3D (which is a complete rip).

    My son (4) loved Rio (as did I), he is half brazilian though and we spend a lot of time in Rio and it was a really good effort, recreates a lot of the city landscape and little in-jokes about the culture, great sound track, but 3D was only ok.

    BTW I think you mean PoTC4 (although hard to tell as PoTC3 was pants too!).

    I will get DoTM, as son loves transformers, but will wait a bit, I let him watch the first one but second is a bit darker (and generally very confusing plot wise), as I suspect this is.

    PoTC4 yeah your totally right. Transformers 2 was pooh, the script was written in 2 weeks and Michael Bay was not happy with his effort. Dark of the Moon is a great film as Bay wanted to redeem himself, the plot is very straight forward compared to the second film.

    I've heard it described as reading Nuts magazine whilst someone let's fireworks off in your face :)

    I wouldn't say the plot was that hard to follow and if you don't mind overly long action sequences then it's fine. Not for me, found it completely boring. The action sequences went on far too long and I didn't care about any of the characters.

    Maybe I'm just too old :rotfl:

    Didn't think the 3D was particularly special either.

    Well I'm in the "loving it" camp, watched meatballs(very good film), Saw 6 or was it 7??, tron, alice in wonderland, megamind, piranha (wow, rubbish film but still a blast to watch), RE, plus many more.

    Now its got to the point that I can't keep buying all this films so is there anywhere in the UK that you can rent 3D blu-rays??

    Have to agree, more depth and sharper. And gaming in 3d is so much more fun.

    You could try Lovefilm. Tehy claim to rent 3D BD, but despite adding every one that I could find listed back in Feb, when I got my TV, most of them are listed as awaiting stock. I did get my first one this week though, Cats & Dogs.
