Has anyone else heard the rumors of a 3-D Roger Rabbit being in the making?

I'm trying to track down the official news item.


I hope not. I don't love 3D movies and dread going to see them when the kids ask.


Saw Wreck-It Ralph yesterday in 2D and it was good. But I noticed during the previews that there are at least 3 kinds of 3D. Is it just branding or are there differences in results or the glasses you have to wear? I understand that IMax 3D is different at least in the way that IMax is different from a normal screen, but is there any difference there either?


Actually 4 formats. And yes, there are different types of glasses. We have a 3D blu ray, and a 3D 'ready' TV, so my wife got a 3D movie. Then asked 'why doesn't it work?'
So I explained to her we are missing both a converter and the glasses.
Hazards of a new format, where standards have not been firmed up.
Which just made me realize that my wife and her sister bought a bunch of 3D blurays for her father and his 3D tv, I'll have to check on that


I thought blueray stopped? Didn't HD win the war?

not a clue. If Bluray stopped, they're still selling them.

No, BluRay won the hi-def "war." HDDVD never really caught on.

No, it was the better technology in too many ways, so naturally it lost. Just as we had a while back with VCR standards.

When the big media companies get involved, they tend to want whatever will be worst for the consumer, so that stuff wears out/fails quickly or is poor quality, so that consumers have to buy more to get the same level of satisfaction.

That is well documented.

Hey, all. I don't know if I posted this before or not. If you're interested in writing, I have a special call that opens in February for science fiction / fantasy military fiction. What Honor Requires is the name of the call. The details can be found here: http://uraniaspecfic.blogspot.com/2012/08/what-honor-requires-special-call.html

Drat. I wish I hadn't read that. Brandie, you are a menace. I've been struggling for nearly 50 years not to write any fiction, and succeeding (never published fiction execpt in school mags, stopped because I wanted to learn maths more than I wanted to write), and now you've got me tempted again. I couldn't resist following the link. You are a thrugh menace! Now I'll try to forget about it.

But it's calling your name. Can't you hear it? Whispering, whispering deep inside your soul.

Besides, you already know math. Why can't you indulge your creative side now?

Make your story about the general in charge of a brigade of mathematicians who's risen through the ranks.

Wow. If that story could plausibly sound "military" enough, I would definitely be interested.

Now you've got my brain going, Stefan, and I can't submit for this because I'm the one in charge of it. GAH!

EDIT: I should mention that anyone (so far as I know) can submit, no matter where you live. 50% royalties are paid. Contracts can be viewed here: http://musapublishing.blogspot.com/p/contractroyalties.html and monies are paid in U.S. dollars (so far as I know).
