Santa Claus does not exist. Or does he? For one doubting boy (voice of Daryl Sabara & Tom Hanks), an astonishing event occurs. Late on Christmas Eve night, he lies in bed hoping to hear the sound of reindeer bells from Santa's sleigh. When to his surprise, a steam engine's roar and whistle can be heard outside his window. The conductor (also voiced of Tom Hanks) invites him on board to take an extraordinary journey to the North Pole with many other pajama-clad children. There, he receives an extraordinary gift only those who still believe in Santa can experience.

I guess so Adam as that's standard with 3D DVDs / BluRays - but it doesn't say on any website that I checked

I'd be interested if it had two pairs.:thumbsup:

I bought the vanilla version after watching the 3D version. I only managed about ten minutes and my eyes were killing me wearing those glasses. Good price though.
#6
Does anyone know if this is the old style red & green 3D, or the cinema style "Real-D" type?
#7
Thanks for the heads up on this title we all love this film and watch it every christmas, have been waiting for it to come out on bluray in 3 d !
#8
Sure its the old type as i dont think our t'v's can cope with the newer version, 3d still works though or at least it should
#9
Love this film!!!
#10
It is the 'home standard' coloured lenses rather than the 'cinema standard' option, which means its not as good as it could be.

But I have been told that the 3d effect itself isn't the best, and is a big disappointment to those who saw it in 3d at the cinema. Other home films in 3d have proven that the coloured lenses can be pretty good, it just seems that the production on this particular film is poor.

I'm still tempted to buy it though, its a fantastic Christmas film and my daughter loves it.

Guessing I'm the only one who didn't like this fill that much then? Still a good price for a new release seasonal flick!

This will be red and green (or bluey green) as the polarised method isn't possible at home yet....or so I'm lead to believe.

Bit of a warning though, I agee with the comment above. 3D at home hirts your eyes and actually it's a bit rubbish. Real 3D (polarised) has ironed out a lot of the problems to make cinema 3D an excellent experience. We have have 'shark boy and lava girl' 3D. The kids just couldn't live with the 3D version and always watch it in 2D now.

BTW - If you like the film, I'd recommend a trip with the kids at xmas to the Imax next to waterloo station. Real 3D, Huge Screen, Huge Sound....loved it. They seem to do a run at xmas but with Scrooge 3D ouit this year perhaps they won't. Book early!

Btw, I assume that the colour settings on your TV affect how well the 3D effect is conveyed (when using the coloured lenses). Is this correct?

Good Deal

You have misunderstood what the fella was asking. I suspect he meant Colorcode anaglyph which is Amber blue as opposed to the old red / green system.

Much better system and does not spoil the picture to the extent that r/g does.

Yep I recon you are right. Cinemas go to a lot of effort to make sure the setup is just right....something difficult to achieve at home. One of the other big issues is brightness of image. If you are projecting the image (which is I believe the only way to go with 3D!) then you'll need a pretty good projector to achieve a decent level. Puttng on the glasses with my current project results in a very dull picture. The LCD TV screen is bright enough but too small. Ho hum.

as I say..bluey green! Real 3D in cinema is polarised light.

Love this film at the IMAX, watch it every year with the other half.

Might give this a try just to see if it works on my Rear Projector TV. However next year I think the 1st batch of real 3D TVs will hit the shelves.

Sorry didn't read properly. it is a shame it isn't colorcode this is a much better system and doesn't require quite as accurate colour reproduction on the telly, which often makes 3d unwatchable.
#20
So does this come with the normal 2d version as well on the disk or is it tough luck if you cannot get on with the 3d picture and glasses etc?
