Is the 3D any good or does being in dark a lot of the time take away from the 3D?
I paid over the odds for this when it came out, watched once and absolutely hated the movie, utter rubbish. Sold it on. It was adequate 3D but it didn’t make the movie better in any way, dont think it was planned as the 3D movie, and it is very dark which is rarely good for 3D.

If you want this then you might want to order it quickly. It's a pre-order but had been out of stock at least twice. It's a German exclusive, the price is reasonable and people from all over are buying it.
Ok done, expensive week so far … thanks to this thread I had forgotten about.

I haven’t watched it yet 🤪😂, I’ve found over the years that foggy out misty scenes are not good for 3D but general dark scenes are ok. When I’ve watched I’ll post back.

Thanks for the reminder of monster Hunter and the link!. I was watching it over on Blu ray.com but was always out of stock and I think more expensive?. Just pre ordered. I have the 4k uhd but look forward to this !.

I had the Amazon uk 4K steelbook in my basket, but generally if I can’t get 4K/3D combo, I‘ll go 3DBD, especially as most genre films are finished in 2K anyway. Occasionally if it’s really good I may top up the 4K down the line if it’s less than a tenner.

Tell me about it. This is easily my most expensive week ever for 3D.

Part of me thinks that a combo will eventually appear so although I've pre-ordered I'm still on the fence.

I’ve just noticed the standard 3D bd is in stock aswell, I might cancel the steel and go with that instead to save a few pounds…

Yes I saw that but price difference is relatively small. But it is another consideration.

Very good price :)

In my ever increasing backlog of 3D films to watch.
Having been pet owners over many years we love it, the 3D is solid and bright and has some pop outs. Not to everyones taste though.

Yes, that and a few other scenes had more pop than I remember !

is anyone thats ordered or has the black widow 3D, going to re-encode it using the forced subs track from the 4K disc ? or is it just not worth it,

yeah I've got the kit, just not committed to the expense of 50GB BR's :censored: but i guess i can rip it to mkv MVC and see how it plays and if its a winner then buy the discs, suppose should have ago as got the 4k burner, and silly to not use it to its full potential :D

£40 for 10 verbatim discs, haven't bought writable discs in years so don't know what the decent ones are apart from verbatim discs

Mine just arrived via DHL, only criticism I have is it was in an ordinary envelope, not even cardboard.
