I love this film, more importantly so does my son! This is the 3D version & comes with 4 pairs of 3D glasses.

heat added, we all loved watching this at christmas

great deal... heat added

Heat added as I have it, the 3D disc has some impressive effects but generally just hurts your eyes - it's very difficult to watch and I bet you'll watch it once only. Well worth it for the 'standard' blu ray though.

Is this old-fashioned red/blue glasses 3D? Or some kind of hybrid between the new cinema 3D and the old-fashioned system?

Sadly the standard red/blue.

Yeah, but we found it worked well and enjoyed it a lot. There's life in the old Red and Blue system yet!

Paid £11.98 from Amazon at Christmas, so £8.95 is excellent!

Voted Hot.

...does 3d work properly with ldc/plasma. I thought 3d only worked properly on the old crt tv's??

I'd be interested in knowing the answer to this too before I buy. The kids love it so would be great if the 3D works just as well with LCD TV's.

Well I can't comment on CRT, we watched it on an LCD and as stated earlier, it was pretty poor. In some scenes they do appear to have worked very hard - snowflakes look like they are blowing from the telly into your room, and some scenes really look like the train is going to crash through your screen - but the impression I was left with was that this is perhaps expensive or difficult to do so was kept to a few showpiece bits. In the main, there is difficult to ignore red/green ghosting and some 3D parts that simply don't work. After watching that for over an hour you really feel knackered and strained.

I still say it's a hot deal, and for the good 3D scenes mentioned you really should experience it, but honestly I think you would watch the standard non-3D blu-ray version every time after that.

bought it at xmas sorry to say the 3d is crap, we watched it on a 42" panny and it just didnt work
