From my recollection, the only Best Buy Disney 3D exclusives so far have been Rogue One and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.
Doctor Strange definitely wasn't an exclusive to Best Buy, and you're a little off on Rogue One. Best Buy wasn't the sole retailer. There also was a Target exclusive.

You're correct, it was exclusive to those two retailers:

Really limited runs for both though. I wonder if they've increased the number for GotG2.

Thanks everybody. I'll avoid the Cumbershit and look more towards DMC or Amazon UK. It looks like it's not available through Target anymore.

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

Picked up Wonder Woman with trading cards yesterday at BB. The 3D was very unimpressive. In fact, I don't recall any noteworthy 3D moments at all. And I'm curious as to why the 3D disc had to settle for a 5.1 DTS-HD MA soundtrack while the 2D disc was treated to a Dolby Atmos track. I know it's possible to put an Atmos track on a 3D disc because Transformers: Age of Extinction has both. 😕

Really no reason we can't get one release with 4K/3D and an extra Blu-ray. I also don't see the sense in using multiple sound mixes. Seems like a waste of time/money for them to do so, unless the goal is to get people to purchase multiple copies.

Sadly I have been doing so with certain releases.

I wish studios would release movies in one set with a UHD, 3D & 2D disc. I can't play UHD discs, but I'm sure someday I'll be forced to upgrade. For now, when there's no 3D option to buy, I buy the UHD set as a way of future proofing. So far I've done that with Jason Bourne and Alien: Covenant.

I had the same problem with the 3D presentation in the theater. It was barely noticeable.

That seems to be a Warner Bros thing. They did the same thing with LEGO Batman 3D earlier this year.

Sucks to hear about the 3D in WW though, my copy arrived in the mail today. I might end up returning it and just pick up the regular version for $10 during Black Friday. The only reason I picked it up is because I have Man of Steel and Batman V Superman in 3D, but neither of those were that great either.

Lego Batman was an underwhelming 3D presentation too. I do remember thinking Man of Steel was pretty good.

BTW - I can one up you by stating that I also have SS in 3D. Why I'm keeping it I have no idea.

I passed on both SS and Lego Batman. I have a feeling I will never rewatch Lego Batman, and SS price is just too high for how crappy it is. Now, when they drop under $10 I might reconsider.

Yeah, that was one bullet I wasn't taking. I have no desire to see that movie ever again in any format.

I really regret buying both. They are just dust gatherers at this point.

It wasn't in the theater and from what I have been reading the disc follows suit.

Wonder Woman 3D review

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Wonder...181067/#Review

In short

Quote:
Overall, the 3D is best experienced and appreciated during the battle and warfare scenes. The post-converted 3D presentation on this BD-50 is above average.

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

Had no problem with 3D on this one either theatrically or on this new Blu. Perhaps I'm more forgiving than some folks here because the novelty of home 3D has never worn off for me, but I don't really think so. I don't expect big pop-outs with most conversions, but the depth effects in this were uniformly excellent, even in the darker scenes, and the characters were nicely rounded (for lack of a better technical term). Really glad to add this to the collection. (a feeling corroborated by many of the 'key' review sites, despite earlier comments in this thread ).

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

I got the 2D of Man of Steel for review here and enjoyed the movie on its own merits that way, but bought the 3D right away afterwards. I didn't expect much from it being a conversion, but I was reasonably wow'd by it. I'd still rather movies be shot in REAL 2-camera 3D rather than be converted, but admittedly many conversions do look good.
