    Perhaps if sales of the 3D version of Judgment Day prove successful, Cameron will tackle a 3D post conversion of The Abyss, which IMO, has NEVER had a proper home video release.
    Just in from Hi def Digest: James Cameron is preparing UHD 4K/BD~V releases of both True Lies and The Abyss. The delay has been caused by Cameron's current work on three Avatar Sequels.

    Of course both will probably be 2D only.

    Tonight, I will be watching the 3D version of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 part of a three disc STEELBOOK edition [UHD 4K/3D/2D BD~V] which is exclusive to Best Buy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/guardia...?skuId=5904801

    BTW, AmazonUS is CURRENTLY charging $119 for the $34.99 Best Buy steelbook package https://www.amazon.com/Guardians-of-...=B074ZMJ66V&m=

    Well I finally sat down to watch "Guardians of the Galaxy, Part 2" in 3D tonight. The film was pretty good, the 3D was excellent at times, but the surround audio was severely lacking. I had to check multiple times that I had selected the DTS-HD Master Audio track. The sound pretty much emanated from the fronts, and it was not until the very end of the film, when there is the "space fireworks" show that the rears actually revealed themselves. That was a big disappointment. It would have been nice to have those old tunes in a surround mix.

    I wonder if the regular BluRay has a different audio track? Might be worth ripping just to see what comes out.

    Anyway, good movie, good 3D, not-so-good surround.

    Also, it was a bitch to get. Only sold through Best Buy and of course it was all sold out by noon on release day everywhere. Freakin' exclusives, really piss me off.

    I likewise bought the Best Buy Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy, Part II [4K/3D/2D steelbook edition] and only watched the BD~V 2D on my projector. The sound was robust and I didn't notice any anomalies. Will of course watch the 3D at some point.

    All I can say is everyone needs a GROOT. He was my favorite character. I was 8 again.

    Yeah, those Best Buy exclusives sell quickly (the Kong: Skull Island 4K/3D/2D steelbook was also excellent and now OOP] but by now, Jon, we should be used to LIMITED EDITIONS.

    But then again, GROOT has a mind of his own and doesn't follow simple commands....so on second thought

    BTW, We.Are.Groot could be the next Steve Wilson album as in Hand.Cannot.Erase.

    I just bought and watched Everest in 3D and it is easily one of the best 3D titles I have bought so far. And the extras are almost as good as the movie entertainment wise (they aren't in 3D and surround). The surround on this disc is basically as good as it gets for a movie. You really feel like you are in a blizzard. Turn off the heat in your house before watching it and you will be positive you are on Everest. It is amazing because it is almost a documentary. They made no attempt to Hollywoodize the story by adding romances or plot points to the story. The story is great as it is and the scenery just keeps blowing you away so there is no need to add extra hokum.

    Speaking of spectacular, my favorite 3D movie/surround sound experience is the fabulous Lichmond 3.

    Lichmond.jpg

    I play this disc almost every day. Not only is the 3D spectacular and the sound quality off the charts (9.1) I love the music. The interesting thing is the video and the audio are not synced like Animusic but it is still stunning. One of the best songs is Catching Rainbows. It really feels like you are flying in 3D.

    The 3D is so spectacular on these puppies that you'd swear it was UHD 4K PLUS PLUS. The entire series is great. Well worth seeking out.

    I am one happy camper. I really love my LG OLED 55 inch 3D TV. I think it is the best TV on the market. However I think the 'magic' remote that comes with it is a magic POS. The best TV with the worst remote. I would accidentally push an unwanted button several times a day. It did not feel good in my hand and has a confusing button layout. Then I discovered replacement that solves all these problems and adds a few buttons. It costs $11 and works perfectly right out of the box with no setup required.

    I love my LG 55" OLED 3D TV, too and I've kinda gotten used to the remote even with its quirks. At least it's small enough to fit in with my other more gangly remotes.

    Glad you finally resolved the issues with the TV. It is pretty astounding.

    If only I had invested in the 77".....but at $20K.......kinda ridiculous! Especially if it did break down and they couldn't offer an equivalent 3D replacement.

    One of the things that I really like about the remote is the fact that they eliminated that stupid pointer thingy. It is light weight but very solid. I love the fact it sits on the arm of my recliner without falling off every time I move and I never get dumb 'Set up Universal Control' dialogue message at least twice a day from accidently pushing that button. I have no desire to get the 77 inch one. If I wanted the screen to be larger I would simply move it closer to me. But at the current distance it provides an awesome viewing experience.

    I did have a bizarre thing happen. When I turned on the TV it also turns on the Blu Ray player. I would turn on the TV, select the input I want and about a minute later the Blu Ray player controls would be up on the screen and I would have to select the input a second time. Well I had a problem with motion on the screen, especially baseballs. When someone hit a fly to the outfield the ball would look funny. Not as a solid ball but like it was a ghost. I finally found the controls for TruMotion and turned it off and now the ball is solid the whole time and the BR player doesn't come on automatically. It doesn't make any sense but then again the problem did not make any sense.

    "OLED panels are mostly found in some high-end TVs, several Android smartphones, and most recently in the Apple iPhone X.

    In general, OLED panels are better than LCD (liquid crystal display) panels in almost every way. They offer incredibly rich color reproduction compared to LCD panels you'd find in older Android phones and the iPhone 8, as well as better contrast between bright and dark areas.

    OLED panels can also reproduce a perfect black color because the pixels displaying the color black will actually turn off entirely. When an LCD panel displays the color black, it tends to appear more gray because the entire LCD panel is constantly backlit, even when there's the color black being displayed. The liquid crystals in front of an LCD panel's backlight can't block out the backlight entirely, and thus the color black can rarely ever be properly reproduced.

    By allowing pixels to turn off entirely for the color black, OLED panels can improve the battery life of mobile devices, too, especially when viewing darker content."

    "And because OLED-type displays turn off entirely when displaying the color black, it allows for the "always-on" mode on smartphones, where a phone can display the time and other basic information on the lock screen without using up much battery."

    OLED sets offer great performance, no doubt. One of the things I worried about is burn-in, though. My previous set, a Samsung plasma that had an incredible picture with better motion than either OLED or LCD, developed burn-in from some banners of a particular channel I watched. If you never watch channels with banners or logos, you don't have to worry about it. I'm happy with my 75-inch LCD, even though it does have some drawbacks. 4K with HDR is stunning. If/when a projector with the same capabilities becomes available at a reasonable price, I'll be all over it.

    The Plasma TVs did suffer from burn in but the OLEDs don't [thankfully]. Was just reading in the current issue of Sound/Vision that the new SONY XBR-65AE1 OLED panel TVs also utilize the panels as speakers....hmm...but NO 3D.

    I've with you on the projector. IF ONLY it could have the stunning resolution and below black levels of the OLED it would be a slam dunk purchase but apparently that technology may be a few years off. I'd settle for a 100" OLED panel [but at what cost?] The LG 77" OLEDs with 3D listed at $20K!

    I bought one of the last plasma sets, and by that time, the industry and most technology writers and Joe Schmoes on the Internet assured anyone who would listen or read that burn-in was a thing of the past for plasma displays. It wasn't true. Not everyone who owned a plasma set developed burn-in, just as not every owner of an OLED set will. Depending on your viewing habits, it should be a consideration, though.

    Now, if OLEDs become more reasonable in the screen size/price ratio, I'll definitely consider one just for watching movies.

    [QUOTE=paligap;347792]I bought one of the last plasma sets, and by that time, the industry and most technology writers and Joe Schmoes on the Internet assured anyone who would listen or read that burn-in was a thing of the past for plasma displays. It wasn't true. Not everyone who owned a plasma set developed burn-in, just as not every owner of an OLED set will. Depending on your viewing habits, it should be a consideration, though.


    I just pause the screen on a commercial break if I'm needing to go to the loo. ..... All black screen or switch channels if I've watching a recorded program, to be safe not pause on anything that may cause ghosting issues.

    Why is it the us still has 3D cinemas but doesn't release 3D in the Blu-Ray sets. I have to buy my movies from the UK, the most recent Salazar's Revenge.

    Burn-in can be caused by pausing, I suppose, but it can also be caused by watching programming that has banners or logos on the screen.
