Most of the previous ones couldn’t be had for much less than $80 anyway.

True. Some how it was more reasonable though.

Well, THAT escalated rather quickly--6 minutes from "I'm not buying it" to "I bought it." Is that a record?

And it certainly sheds new light on your signature, OldBoy!

Well, in those 6 minutes, I realized or remembered how good the first looks in 3D. But, mostly it was the semi-completist in me. I have every other, even the not so great Dr. Strange 2 and Thor 4. I knew I wanted it, but I can justify the $75, since I’ve obviously done before, but never paid $100. It’s a disease, I know it all to well. That’s what happened in those six minutes.

What do you think is the best Marvel movie on Blu-ray 3D?

I think for me it’s a toss up between Black Panther and Doctor Strange.

Thought it was as excellent as the other 3D Blu-ray versions in the franchise. Hard to say much about each new 3D Blu as they're usually up to expectations: lots of depth, no pop-outs, etc. Just wish Random Space would get some kind of contract to release the Marvel movies.

There's two.

There's "The Day of the Doctor," which is the 50th Anniversary special, and was shot in 3D.

Then there's "Doctor Who: Dark Water / Death in Heaven," which is a two-parter season finale that was converted to 3D for a limited theatrical screening and home video release.

Hamilton Book has the latter for $4.95:

They also have a number of other relatively cheap 3D Blu-rays:

I thought WAKANDA was the worst of the MCU movies. I'd not pay more than $15 for it but only to keep my MCU collection complete.

If you backed Robot Monster on Kickstarter, you have to go in and update your mailing address.
Look for Response needed email from 2/5/23.
Apparently, Kickstarter is going to delete all of the backer reports, which includes the addresses.

BayView Entertainment, LLC, has been one of America's leading independent distributors of feature films, fitness, wellness, and special-interest video releases for over 19 years. With hit films such as “THE ENORMITY OF LIFE” (starring Breckin Meyer), “BURNING BODHI” (starring Kaley Cuoco), and the 2023 sensation “SKINAMARINK” leading the way, BayView’s development in independent cinema has made it one of the fastest growing names in the field. Incorporating catalogs from Mutiny Pictures, VIPCO, Monterey Media, Bennett Marine Video, and many others, BayView is positioned to expand even further in years to come.

Will be interesting to see how the 3D is in this, given how badly-made it looks in general. 3D Film Archive does have a habit of making movies look better than they were meant to.

That cover alone makes me want it. The 3D is secondary. 😂 Is this up for preorder anywhere?

The Kickstarter was posted in this thread some time ago, but it ended. My post earlier was Furmanek’s most recent update from the Kickstarter page.

They actually got over six times their initial ask of $10,000, so clearly there’s still a lot of love out there for it. I like the new cover art (presumably it will be used for the lenticular slipcover add-on), but I really hope the original promotional materials will be on the disc as a gallery of some kind.

I guess the only way to buy it now is to just wait until Bayview starts selling it.

I think the Archive makes even ‘bad’ movies like these look they way their makers intended them to look, which was more often undermined over the years by faulty printing and projection processes of the era (key reasons why 3D was so short-lived compared to today) and furthermore by subsequent re-releases via worn-out prints and inferior video formats like anaglyphic VHS. It’s a shame so many of the filmmakers of that brief 50’s 3D wave can’t to see their features properly presented today.

Note that the Kickstater backers are due to get their copies "in time for the 70th anniversary of the June 24, 1953 world premiere in Los Angeles."

So I'm guessing the retail release will be June or later.

This could end up being the release of the year.

Random Space is teasing 3 Dreamworks movies that got snubbed though: Bad Guys, Rise of Gru and Sing 2.

Nice. I was wondering if those might end up there.

Just noticed some comments on their Facebook post begging for the JAWS (75) 3D disc as well. Considering their relationship with Universal, that would be pretty cool.
