Bought the DVD version yesterday for £8 (ASDA) and watched it today on an old CRT Sharp TV with 32" viewing. Plot was run of the mill but the graphics were stunning. Artists at their best.
If it's amazing on TV I wonder what it was like in true 3D.
Anyone seen it at the Cinema in 3D?

Rented it today from Blockbuster,will watch it tomorrow....with so many films now in Blue-Ray Im tempted to upgraded

I'm not sure if Blue-Ray would do more justice to it rather than the wide-screen of cinema in "true 3D". Certainly spectacular graphics on an ordinary CRT telly with DVD.
If more films of this nature are going to be developed in 3D, as well as 2D, then I think 3D will be the future of home entertainment.
Especially in Blue-Ray format.
I don't mind wearing 'Elton John' type specs.

Watched it HD and it's very pretty, you could tell which bits would been the "wowww" bits in 3d as the camera kept randomly panning slowly.

I don't like 3d movies.

Effects very good but seems to be Pocahontas in outer space

Yes.

There are stunning 3D effects that you obviously don't get on a TV. Visually it is truly a memorable film.

As I said in my opening post. Plot is the usual.
The graphics are not so usual and seem above and beyond what modern day computers are capable of.
Stunning graphics on even a CRT telly in 2D. I'll wach it again but this time without the 'what's that dad' question over and over again for the first hour.
Brilliant film just for the panorama effects.
Stunning.

Forum Editor, thanks for the reply I wanted.
Will be going to a local Cinema if they will show it in 3D.

By the by, still had to turn the volume up to hear conversations and had to turn the volume down when the action started.
Nothing changes sometimes; even without adverts.

That is a problem I had, watched it with daughter after wife had gone to bed so music too loud and talking too quiet

I paid £23 in Tesco for the Blu-Ray disc... then found it in Sainsbury's for £15.

The HD is stunning, though as rdave pointed out, the audio is a bit wayward.
