Hmmm, I had to lookup "RealD" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RealD_Cinema
(and:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_RealD_films )

So what should I be out watching ?  Avatar?

I don't really goto the cinema much anymore, since they became such a 
bunch of great puddings at my local cinema-wtf-aplex.   Maybe I'll drag 
my sorry arse out for some nightlife.

I must admit, the polarising tech does sound better than Red Vs Blue.

My daughter had some Barbie DVD that came with a bunch of cardboard 
glasses ... not much spare change from the 80's there. 

I wonder if you could home-brew your own polarised 3d HT with 2x video 
projectors ;)
