The F13 BD set is an amazing set. Honestly I really don't see the point of getting 4K for this series. Unless you really want 4K and had no interest in that mega set. But for me personally, that set was more than adequate and is now quite affordable.

I assumed a 4k set of this was coming. It still might, but I grabbed this when it was released anyway and now i canít remember why. I had the tin BD set, but this had an exclusive something, but I forget.

yeah, but Vudu doesn’t have the third in 3D. Plus, the myriad of incredible extras. $80 is nothing for this set. Quite a great price for an amazing collection

I have the DVD if I ever lose my mind and want to watch 3 in 3D. You can try to keep a dying gimmick alive but there's a reason it's dying.

I wish I had the anaglyph DVD. (I can't enjoy the BD 3D presentation with my paleolithic set.)

Anaglyph 3D looks like ass, and Part 3 is one of the most pointless movies to watch in 2D as thereís so many 3D gags in it.

I got it at $100 and don't regret it at all. I've had it for 3 years already.

Fingers crossed that the PSVR2 has (or will have?) Blu-ray 3D support, just like they patched in support on the PS3 and PS4. Not holding my breath or anything, but hopeful! I don't really care about "new" 3D movies, but I have a pretty sizeable stack of 3D BDs I've only ever watched flat or with anaglyph glasses.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when the Avatar sequel hits home video, even if 3D support on the PSVR2 is a purely digital download/streaming thing.

Re: Friday The 13th BR Box Set in the works.

Anyone here have the 4K release of the first movie? At the other forum, I can't seem to find a consensus on the picture quality. Some reviews say it looks fantastic while many say it is too dark.

Other reviews I have sought out kinda say both. That it looks great, but it is very dark. So, I was interested in any educated/owner opinions here. I doubt a complete 4K boxset will be on its way anytime soon.

Look at the caps: https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?go=1&...198135&i=0&l=0

It's darker, but does looks like it is richer. It looks like sometimes you can't see trees that you could see on the Blu during night scenes.
