3-D Blu-ray discs

3-D for the home has failed.  The latest TVs and Blu-ray players do not include it.  Some movies are still shown in the theaters in 3D.

At this point, many films made in 3D are not being released on US Blu-ray discs in 3D.  However, you can find foreign 3D discs that are region 0 or all regions that will play on US players.  They’re available on eBay.

3D also failed in the 1950s.  However, many of those films have been released on 3D Blu-ray discs. Dial M for Murder (1954) was made in 3D but not shown that way until 1980.  It’s available on a 3D Blu-ray.

Here’s a history of 3D movies.

3-D Space is a non-profit devoted to stereoscopic imaging.

Recent films in 3D are usually animated movies or superhero films.  For 3D effects, I recommend Doctor Strange, Pacific Rim and Inside Out.
