lgprojector.jpg

3D continues to make news and original products. LG has two new projectors, the BX327 at a price of around $837.00 and the BX327 for ~$1090.00. Both include shutter-type glasses and include a 2,300:1 contrast ratio, stereo speakers and USB jack. Perhaps at that next business conference, it can be pepped up with the supposedly first IMAX-3-D erotic film "3-D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy" made in Hong Kong.

Titanic to Crash Again in 3D

titanic.jpg

Just as the glut of 3D movies continues to reign the screen (Piranha 3D, Step Up 3D) for the gimmick as well as the extra fee tacked on to ticket prices, James Cameron announced that one of the top chick flicks ever made, Titanic, will be re-released in that format. Geez Leo, thinking of you as king of the world that close makes us throw up in our mouths a little. It should be released next year to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the launch of the ship.

Captain EO Returns to Disneyland Tokyo

mjacksoncapteo.jpg

Many years ago, one of our first exposures to 3D came in the form of "Captain EO," a musical short with Michael Jackson which was shown at Disneyland. We were so in awe that we re-screened it about 6 times by, instead of leaving with everyone else, hanging back and pretending we were with the next group. We finally found the perfect position to view the short and reluctantly left the building. Now Disneyland Toyko has reopened the attraction temporarily after 14 years as a tribute to the fallen star. There's some symmetry in that.

P.S. Row 11, center seat.
