You are watching: Thor ragnarok 3d blu ray release date


Just watched Thor Ragnarok at our local Regal RPX in RealD 3D. Enjoyed it very much. Love the sound, love the big screen, and the movie is action-packed, funny and, fine .... silly. As for 3D, I would have been just as happy to watch it in 2D. Not sayin" it"s bad 3D, just that it"s not essential. While 3D adds some extra dimensionality and depth, it"s not all that special. Interestingly, the main mid-day and evening showtimes for Thor in the RPX cinema are both in 2D, while RPX 3D is shown mid-afternoon and late night. This suggests that maybe the theater has concluded that not enough customers will pay the premium extra cost for the 3D version.

So they should drop the upcharges, not run more 2D showings! I used to work for Regal, they"re an awful company.
There is quite a bit of 3D pop-out in this film if that"s your thing. My friends hated the 3d for that reason and wish our theater would offer more 2D showings. For some reason our local theater only plays the 3D versions of all movies during evenings, if you want a 2D version it"s only playing once a day in the afternoon.
I noticed that Disney announced preorders with exclusives for this movie on Blu-ray, but no 3D version is listed. It looks like they might be phasing out 3D Blu-ray releases. I read Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a Best Buy exclusive, maybe exclusives are the best we can hope for now.

I have a very large 3D blu-ray collection because I love "em. I do think that pop outs add to the fun. If the stereoscopic effect is there just for "depth and realism" you may just as well watch 2D, you will still get the "look-n-feel" of the story. If you like to immerse yourself into the story as I do, or try to, then 2D can be enough. If, again like me, you want something more by going 3D, then why not expect more and get more. Avatar in 3D is nothing like the 2D experience.In-your-face 3D effects make a movie fun. You also get a jolt to wake you up to the fact that you are watching 3D. After sitting for an hour or so, even with heavy glasses on (in my HT), particularly with the latest versions of 3D, you tend to forget that you are in fact watching a 3D movie. As such, it may as well be 2D. If however, it occasionally tries to belt you in the face or poke your eye out, it wakes you up, much like a jump scare in a horror movie and suddenly your head is back into appreciating the depth of the 3D.Maybe you prefer to just let the depth wash over you but if so, why did you go to the trouble and expense of setting up a 3D system, or paying extra for a 3D movie at the multiplex? I will admit that IMAX is different. Anything in 3 at IMAX is sensational.
