I've yet to watch it in 3D but from a few reviews I've read this transfer is technically better than the previous bluray release. It was easy to shell out the fifteen bucks when it cames with the 3D, 2D, and DVD version of the flick. 3D is in fact the same gimmick it was fifty plus years ago and I've gotten to where I refuse to see them in the theater. However, for an extra fiver per bluray I think it's a pretty cool experience for home viewing. My two cents anyway.
