Are all Disney films musicals? No, I'm only saying that about musicals. I absolutely hate them. Especially ones were the characters are singing practically every spoken word. I actually wanted to like Nightmare Before Christmas. I attempted to watch a couple previous ones but could never get through one. And I actually went to this one in the theater, stupid me. It drove me fricking batty and I walked.

Visually it's great though. And I understand some people do like musicals. So for those people, cool, enjoy. But me, you couldn't pay me to watch it again. well, that depends on how much was offered lol.

Unfortunately it has been at least a dozen I would say. I went through this same nonsense when I was an early adopter of high definition cable and blu-ray / HD-DVDs. I had a harder time with that. It was a lot of "I can't tell the difference. . . "

Default Rebuying a movie just for 3D?

Guys, I'd like to know... when a movie you already have in BD 2D (for example, Monsters Inc) gets re-released, but this time with a 3D disc, do you usually douple dip? Or you only buy in 3D movies you don't own already? Thanks!

I find myself double dipping when the 3D combo goes to the $15 range. I don't think it makes sense paying $10 for the 3D disc only. I prefer waiting and getting the packaging as well. But that's just me.

No point in doing so unless a title was originally shot in 3D and received a 3D BD release, but you initially bought the 2D release instead.

Monsters Inc 3D looks really good for the 3D. Stronger than most Disney films from what I saw the other day in theaters.

I rarely double dip purchase a movie, unless I really enjoyed the movie and only had it on DVD, as was the case with my only 3D double dip of I Robot 3D for 19.99, as I wouldn't pay more for it than that. The 3D was decent at best, but was happy to have the movie in hi def.

Only other double dips for 2D films were Lord of the Rings first on DVD for theater versions, then bought the blu ray extended version for 40 bucks, and to be honest, the extended versions are a pain as each film is separated into two discs, requiring a break in the continuity just to get up and change the disc, wait for it to load, nevermind the fact the first two films had limited extended footage that, IMO, wasn't worth the purchase for the extended version, excluding part III.
Hellboy II, also from DVD to Blu Ray at 7.99, great movie. Otherwise, I don't plan to upgrade any other DVDs except for:

The Star Wars series I through VI for the 3D versions on blu ray 3D (still have the DVD versions, and the VHS versions). Can't wait for Star Wars VII in 3D.

I double-dip a lot. Whether it's DVD-Blu, or 2D-3D. It gives me a chance to give the old copy to my folks, as a little something for all the big, big things they've done for me throughout my life.

For 2D-3D I've double dipped on; A Christmas Carol, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and... uh... Clash of the Titans.

I'll probably double dip for Beowulf and Star Wars as well. But with Star Wars, I will keep my other copies. I have UOT VHS, SE VHS, TPM VHS, UOT DVD, SE DVD, PT DVD, Saga Blu and hopefully Saga 3D in the next few years when VII comes out. Then I can start buying 4K versions!

I've double dipped half of my DVD collection to blu-ray and quite a few blu-rays to 3D.

Toy story 1,2 & 3, Bolt, Beauty & The Beast, Megamind, How To Train Your Dragon, Complete Shrek Collection, soon to be Monsters Inc. I think there's more but I can't remember off the top of my head.

Double dipped on these, some with regret or totally worth it:

Avatar (some regret)
Despicable Me (worth it)
How To Train Your Dragon (worth it)
Kung Fu Panda 1 (worth it)
i, Robot (some regret)
Tangled (worth it)
Thor (worth it)

Probably do the same for Finding Nemo, Up, Jurassic Park, and maybe Monster's Inc.

Movies that I saw in 3D in theaters I did. Avatar, Tron Legacy, Transformers DOTM. I just wanted to watch them that way again and in the case of Avatar and Tron it just seems that's the way to watch em. And I will be double dipping Jurassic Park if the conversion is good.

I, Robot was a conversion so no surprise there. It should have been the same for Thor since it was also a conversion.

Thanks guys!
I'm thinking about doing a double-dip on Brave... I won the 2D BD as a gift, but since I have a 3D TV, I think I should at least start collecting the new releases in 3D... questions, questions...

I refuse to buy 100% 2D to 3D conversions. A gimmick in every sense of the word.

You jogged my memory! Despicable Me and KFP1 were also ones I double dipped on. Both very worth it. I got the Avatar Starter Kit for free with my TV. Had I not, I would have definitely been buying the version in stores now. I'd never have paid $80+ on it. Not because Of the 3D (which is some of my favorite live action 3D) but because I'd never pay that for a single movie.

My opinion is that I spent out for the 3DTV so I want the movies to watch on it. If I already own the movie in 2D I must like it so why not upgrade? I've always had no problem recouping most of what I paid for the 3D combos by selling my 2D versions. Alternatively, plenty of people sell the 3D only disc from their combos. You could buy those.

For movies I don't own, if it's available in 3D, I'll always buy the 3D version.

Looking at Blu-Ray only, I haven't had to double-dip yet, though I have no problem with doing it for future 3D conversions. If a movie originally came out in 3D theatrically, for the most part I will refuse to buy it until it comes out as a proper 3D BD. My one exception has been for the Miley Cyrus concert movie, which I got in its anaglyphic BD release; as the Hannah Montana fad has passed, I doubt Disney will ever re-release it. (And no laughing at that one, I unashamedly like bubble-gum pop music.)

For other media, I've double-dipped on A Nightmare Before Christmas and Titanic, both of which I own on laserdisc.
Formats currently playable in media set-up: Blu Ray 3D, Blu Ray, DVD, Video CD, Laserdisc, Laseractive, CD Video, CED, VHD, 3D VHD, Betamax, CD, CD+G, audio cassette, vinyl, Atari 2600, Commodore 64/128. No VHS!
