    Disney hits another one out of the ballpark with MONSTERS UNIVERSITY! Perfect in all respects and one that I really enjoyed. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: :3dglasses:

    Hello,

    Off topic but also on...

    I have a 3d set up with an xbox one as my 3d player and a Benq w1070 projector and glasses that I picked up from Ebay (Sansonic or something).

    Love the set up, love the effect, BUT I find that it puts me to sleep. I get about an hour or so I am off in La La Land. Doesn't matter if it is late at night or middle of the day, wide awake, sleepy. 60 minutes (sometimes less) in and I am yawning and nodding off. Non 3d movies I don't have this problem.

    Does anyone else experience this problem and if so has anyone found an effective way to deal with it (besides caffeine or calisthenics during a bathroom intermission).

    I am not sure if it is a problem with the active nature of the glasses which sort of hypnotizes me or a projector issue (it is a DLP and I do occasionally notice the rainbow effect). Would different glasses fix it? Different projector?

    Thanks for any and all insight.

    Kip

    I have the same problem. Maybe I shouldn't eat before I watch, because it happens every time.

    I'm wondering if this has something to do with the ultra-fast flickering in the active glasses. Most people don't notice the flickering, but perhaps its playing tricks with your brain?

    If you go to a movie theater and see a film that uses passive 3D projection (like RealD or IMAX), do you experience the same feeling of fatigue?

    I felt fatigue every time I went to the theater with all the annoyances...hence, I don't go anymore.

    I didn't have that problem when my primary 3D set-up was active. The 3D is so good on my passive OLED set-up that I'm always wide awake looking in amazement at everything.

    I think the problem is old age! I noticed it first with silent drama. I can’t seem to stay awake after 15 minutes. Now it is any long piece of exposition in any film. Thank goodness for rewind!

    Often I doze off, but can go back to the last part I remember. This does not happen visually with TV shows or with movies seen in the cinema, or live theatre, thank goodness!

    It happens at home whether flat or 3D. Add to this sitting in a recliner, and various prescriptions, and voila!

    For a long time, when I'd watch movies in my HT, I'd need a "power nap" around 6PM. I'd never really "sleep", but I'd close my eyes and enter a nap-like state for about 20 minutes and then I'd be fine.

    That stopped happening a while back - maybe 5 years ago? Not sure when it changed and not sure WHY it changed, but I'm not as "nap needy" as I was! :)

    I don't find I fall asleep during Theatrical viewing of 3d content (other than going to the late opening night showing after a long day at work but I attribute that to fatigue and find a coke zero mitigates the problem but keeps me awake until 3 am. Wife loves that!!).

    So no, it doesn't seem to happen with passive 3d.

    I am slowly considering a projector upgrade ( as 4k projectors approach my $1000 sweet spot). Guess I will have to see if there is a passive 3d 4 k projector out there and get glasses for that. Perhaps that will help.

    Glad to see it isn't just me!

    Same here but not only for 3D, a large lunch or tea accompanied with wine plus seated in a recliner is a recipe for Zzzzzzz :), I also sit by an open fire in winter so another creature comfort!.
    I don’t always nod off especially if the movie is gripping.

    GNOME & JULIET. Has front 3D, but lacking in rear 3D. A few pop outs, but that's it. Mostly for children, but an okay addition to your collection.

    Oh, yeah, the DTS 7.1 audio left a lot to be desired...just plain crappy.

    I think he’s talking about sleeping, not the film

    Yes, you're right, and I am (increasingly) misreading posts. Apologies.

    Saw Aquaman in IMAX 3d last night. What an amazing experience. I won't speak to the quality of the film (i liked it but can see why some might not) but the 3d and the CGI were incredibly immersive. I sincerely hope they bring that out in 3D Blu Ray. I know the colours probably won't pop as much as the IMAX experience but if it is even close for the home theater WB, you can have my money - Aquaman, 3d Atmos.
