USA Monster House in 3D - September 14th, 2010

Quote:
Confirming earlier reports, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced its second movie for release on 3D Blu-ray: Monster House, which is scheduled to hit store shelves on September 14. Like the 3D edition of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, this BD will include both a full-resolution 3D version and a 2D version of the movie.

Special features include:
Filmmakers' Commentary
Featurettes:
Imaginary Heroes
Beginner's Luck
The Best of Friends
Lots of Dots
Black Box Theater
Making it Real
Did You Hear That
Evolution of a Scene: Eliza vs. Nebbercracker

Open Season
[Show spoiler]


As for me, I'm not personally ready to jump on the 3D bandwagon just yet. The current 2D release is fine by me for now, although expect it to go OOP when this one hits.

BEST NON-PIXAR CGI FILM EVER! I do not have, or at the moment plan on getting a 3D TV. But if I ever do this will be a must have!

Is the 2D presentation on this 3D version the same as the previously released blu-ray?

The 2D video quality of this 3D disk blows away the previously released 2D version. It is worth getting even for the 2D version.

Is there a loss of special features with this 3D release as opposed to the original one? I think I remember that happening to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs only jetisened a DVD copy, interactive crap, and an audio commentary.

Monster House loses nothing.

The original 2D version encoded the movie at less then 20 gigs with space hogging MPEG-2 and PCM. The 3D version devotes the movie nearly 34 gigabytes with more space efficient AVC and DTS Master Audio. Since 3D only requires around 50% higher bitrates then 2D it makes sense that the 2D version would look better.

This is the version of Monster House to buy even if you don't like 3D

Default Different Audio Version

I wasn't going to buy Monster House because it didn't have Spanish audio and I noticed the 3D version has the Spanish audio. By the way, I'm trying to learn Spanish so I thought I would only buy movies with Spanish audio included.

Had a weird as hell experience with the film.
When I got the disk a few months ago and tried it out with Total Media Theater 3 (with the latest 3-D Blu-Ray patch, so it should have worked fine) the picture I was getting was very weird, a lack of textures, the grain filter effect, everything looked polygonal and kind of like a videogame, like a high polygon and top shelf animation version of some cash in kids games. I was really disappointed. I tried it again last night with TMT 5 (same video card) and all the textures and the grain filter are there and it looks fantastic and blows the old disk out of the water. I've never heard of movie playing software (or even a video card) flat out rendering a film differently like what happened to me before, that's more along the lines of how videocards work with different games.

Looking for more opinions on the old 2D video encode versus the new 2D one on the 3D release than what's already been said. Here I'm reading the new one's better, whereas in this AVS Forum thread folks are saying there's really no difference.

Wondering 'cos I just picked up the old release for less than 8 bucks and if there's no big difference, I'll stick with what I have, but if there's a strong difference, I'll take it back and pay the higher price for a better presentation.

It'd be awesome if I could see screencap comparisons. Blu-ray.com sadly doesn't repeat any of the same frames over the two releases, and also I've noticed that older Blu-ray.com caps look...kinda junky compared to most of their current ones, so you couldn't accurately compare even if they did take similar frame grabs.

Interestingly, the opening credits on the 2D version of the 3D release start off dim, then light up about a second later. This is the first time I've seen this on any copy of MH I've seen. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
