CORALINE DVD Will Offer Crappy 3D Experience

     May 26, 2009

head1.jpgIn my review of Coraline, I noted that this was the first 3D film that would be worth owning on DVD.  While films like “Beowulf” or “My Bloody Valentine 3D” become worthless without the 3D experience, “Coraline” is such a gorgeous film that viewing it in HD is all that’s really required and since the film was never overly reliant on 3D (although it was always made with Digital 3D in mind), it would certainly be worth a purchase on DVD.

But Universal wants to give you that experience anyway even with the crappy red-blue 3D that everyone hates.  I would really like a filmmaker to stand up and say “My 3D film will not be available for home 3D viewing because that’s not the way I intended it.  I wouldn’t allow my film to be seen in fullscreen and until we have Digital 3D home viewing technology, my film will only be available in 2D”.  I suppose some could make the argument that the red-blue 3D is better than nothing, but after watching films in red-blue 3D, I would say that nothing is definitely better.

Still, “Coraline” is a must-buy for Blu-Ray owners and the two-disc collector’s edition looks pretty great as well.  Check out the list of special features after the jump.
