We have 9-year-olds in the family, so Resident Evil is out of the running. I checked out the UK Amazon site and their prices on 3D movies, in general, are better (especially if you don't get dinge for any duties/taxes -- not sure how that works but if it's under $30 what are the chances of incurring these fees?) As well, they have some movies that only have the 3D disc, and skip the 2D blu ray and the DVD -- that's got to drive the prices up. They also had some links for some sponsored sellers and I saw many selling Avatar-3D at various prices (some were links to eBay auctions though).

Most 3D movies at amazon uk are not zone A compatible. Becareful what you buy.

In the GTA you can find many vendors sell legitimate Avatar 3D for $30 (albeit Asian edition making navigating through the disc a bit tricky)

3D movies are a pain to buy but FS and BB often have 3D sales where you can buy quite a number of 3D movies for $20 Tbut never Disney).

I found a search (on amazon . co . uk) for "Blu-ray 3D Region Free" works quite well.

Wow. All superb films. If I didn't own all of them already, I'd jump on that set!

Read on another forum that Costco has 3D blu rays of Captain America, Thor and Green Lantern on for $25. I'll check out my local store later -- if true, I'll pick up Captain America. Haven't seen it, heard it was decent, still don't have a 3D movie (other than the coral reef one) to go with my 3D TV.

Well, I got Captain America 3D blu-ray, for $25. There were a few titles at $25 and a few more at $28.

Also just saw the Future Shop flyer and they are advertising $10 off on 3D blu-rays (selected, I'd bet) with a trade in of a DVD. They say *any* DVD. So there are some titles that can be had for $20 after the trade in.

They also have non-3D blu rays that have a $5 trade in discount.

Costco currently has Bond-50 (the complete 22 movie collection) for $169.99.

I do realize that Never Say Never is not included...but if you haven't already picked up most of the single bluray disks...then this is a must.

Just an FYI...they have also left a spot for Skyrim...

On that topic, does anyone have any idea why the blu-ray for that movie is so super rare? I don't understand why they would go to the trouble to produce the movie on blu-ray and then discontinue (if it is in fact discontinued) it so quickly. The prices I've seen for it on auction sites are a bit ridiculous.
