I'm not normally a 3D cheerleader, but along with Gravity and Hugo, I think you are missing something by not see this in 3D. Not saying you can't appreciate it, but the 3D definitely enhances this.

Didn't see Hugo & not interested, but yes, Pi and Gravity looked terrific in 3D - on the big screen in theater. But I have no interest in adding 3D to the home theater as around 1% of my viewing time would be for 3D Blu-ray. Yes, 3D TV & projectors can convert 2D content to 3D, but I'm not really interested in seeing what Rachael Maddow or a football game look like in fake 3D.

I expected to hate the film because I think Ang Lee is overrated, because he treated the effects people who made the film possible rather poorly and because the film looked like a lot of new age spiritual waffle of the sort I can't stand.

But I loved it and it has become one of my most re-watched movies of recent years. It's simply one of the most spectacular looking films ever made and unlike some, I think the ending is clever and far more ambiguous than a simple plot twist. I also love animals and cats in particular and loved Richard Parker, a rare not anthropomorphic animal character. One of a small number of films that convinced me to upgrade to a 3D projector.

is there any reason to think this gets a 4k release soon after UHD blu rays hit the market? I dont want to buy the 3d blu ray for $17 if it comes out next year.

I'm not to up to speed on fox's preference for 4k.

any opinions?

Movie was shot at 2.8K and finished at 2K, 4KBD would probably make it look slightly better but not by much, not enough to be worth double dipping over imo.

In the flying fish sequence, there are intermittent frames with this blue streak. They happen in the same places in both the 2D and 3D versions. I have the Taiwan edition. Does the US edition have this issue? What is the cause of this?
