The New Double Dip

Postby Movie Mike » Thu Oct 28, 2010 10:32 am

Is the 3D release on Blu-ray the new double dip? How to Train Your Dragon and Toy Story 3 are both getting just a standard Blu-ray release with no 3D version in sight. My ration of double dipping from DVD to Blu-ray is pretty high and I certainly hate to think that I'm now going to have to be doing tons of Blu-ray to 3D Blu-ray double dipping in the future. Re-releasing stuff like Bolt and Coraline is fair game for a double dip but there is no excuse to do that with recent films like How to Train Your Dragon.

Considering I'll NEVER buy a TV that requires me to wear a big, hokey pair of $150 glasses, the answer is no.

I'm with Dan. Actually, I'm quite happy with this. As long as they keep releasing the 2D's as separate -- and hopefully cheaper -- packages then I can buy things without getting stuff I don't want. 3D has no interest for me at all. Now if we only could do something about those damn combo things.

You're wrong man, those glasses make you look totally cool and rad. :D All the hip kids will be wearing them.
