Heard nothing but good about Life of Pi in 3D.

Looking forward to Hugo 3D on Sky at Christmas.

Sky 3D is a terrible disappointment: films I've already seen, pay-per-view for anything new, boring documentaries on an endless loop.

How much does it set you back to get the 3D channel

The reviews for the 3d blu ray seem pretty good, you can read the reviews at play.com

Nothing if you subscribe to HD etc. You're not missing much if you don't get it.

If you're prepared to wait for about twelve months after a 3D film has been released in the cinema, you'll get it on Sky 3D.

If you can't wait that long, it'll be on PPV a few months earlier.

I don't go to the cinema, or have a blu-ray, so the 'free' 3D channel is well worth it. I don't bother with PPV, because I'm prepared to wait a couple of months longer.

I already had the full Sky package with HD, so it doesn't cost a penny extra.

You have to have the full sky world package (basically everything) to get the 3D channel for "free"

Don't remind me. I've been considering dumping Sky for a while now.

I bought a 3D telly from Sainsburys (£199) a few months back so I'm kind of hoping they have the odd free weekend here and there - they've done one once before.

I don't generally go for 3D films because the extra cost at the cinema really doesn't justify it for me.

Plenty of 3D stuff available by "other means".

Oh you mean flying to the states, purchasing these films legally and flying back again ? *cough*

I have indeed made such flights since I got my television ..

I watched the latest Spiderman film in 3D and was actually quite impressed - the city sequences worked really well. I also, unfortunately, watched "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" as well. Not only was it a crap film, the 3D was poor as well - too many cliched "object flying at the screen" shots for me,

There's free tickets on Sky Rewards for a preview of Life of Pi 3D for next Tuesday, 11th.

Unfortunately, I'm travelling that day so can't make it.

As the regular price at the cinema is nearly nine quid a ticket, I'll wait for it to come on Sky 3D in a year's time!!

You can get access to PPV content on Sky's 3D channel without having the full package but an HD subscription IS needed. So for those with a 3DTV and the Entertainment/extra pack with an HD sub can order PPV 3D content. A damn sight cheaper than a family day out to the cinema.

Purely in terms of 3D the best lately are:
Finding Nemo
The Creature from the Black Lagoon
Dark Country
Hugo
Avatar
I, Robot
The Avengers
Despicable Me
Tangled

My guilty 3D pleasure is "The Bubble" which is possibly the worst movie in history but on the big screen the Spacevision 3D is amazing. If it's available at all these days, it's probably only in a crappy anaglyph format.

I think that Disney's A Christmas Carol was a great example of 3D at it's best just a pity it is not showing in 3D again this year.

I agree. It was the first 3D film I saw!!! It was on Sky 3D last Christmas, just when we got our 3D TV.

One of the best. It's a shame the BBC aren't showing any of their films in 3D too. They're also showing How To Train Your Dragon and Alice in Wonderland, which have both been on Sky 3D in the last year.

Mind you, there's three film premieres on BBC Two over Christmas which aren't even being shown in HD!!

I really don't know how you can say that In my opinion there is a lot of good stuff on Sky 3D for example the Attenborough documentaries have been outstanding in 3D and just one of many that have shown 3D at its best.

Yeah I was quite surprised how well it worked so we went out and bought it and we've watched it quite a number of times since then and no doubt will watch it again. For me, 3D seems to be at it's best with animation/CGI

I have to say that I sometimes seriously doubt the BBC commitment to HD.

Yes I think that animation was really made for 3D as most times it just looks awesome. How anyone can say that Sky 3D is boring I don't know.
