On TV - 3D - The Last Day of The Dinosaurs - November 21
Bell Express View is premiering this 3D movie on channel 1602 "Discovery World" 3D channel on Sunday November 21st at 9:30 pm.
There is not much information about the show other than what the titles indicates, no length of time or date of release.
The are actually simulcasting on channel 1933 which has been showing the same 3D content over and over for the last few months.
I think this is a trial run for the December Toronto vs Montreal NHL game in 3D so lets hope things go well.
I am sure Suave can comment on if Rogers will be airing this movie on there service.

Damn - I missed this on Sunday. It looks like it aired on Discovery World HD, the regular Discovery channel and the Rogers 3D preview channel (900).
I just looked all over the Discovery channel website and the show is being repeated a number of times this week (today) and next week on the SD Discovery channel (42). It's also repeated on Discovery World HD tonight a 8pm but it's not clear if this is the true 3D version. I've got my PVR set for the 8pm showing on Discovery World HD but I'll also check out channel 900 at the same time.
Did you watch this LesIsTechSavy? How did you like it?
Save your PVR memory. As much as the story goes, we all know what happened. The scenarios presented seem at times a bit too precise, for example telling you what the temperature in the BC coastal region would be as the blast wave arrives, there are many times that they seem to pick temperatures, tsunami wave height, wind speed as if they were there. There are times when you feel like they are psycho-analyzing the last minutes of these doomed characters. The blast effect and ensuing events would have been perfect for all out 3D, but that did not happen.
The story tellers seemed unable to steer clear of the path of identifying a few likable characters as we watch their world collapse around them. Its great if you want to generate sympathy for an extinct species but I am not sure why that would matter? I have to blame Don Bluths work for this weakness in dinosaur story telling.
Overall, its great that there are attempts to put all forms of entertainment in 3D, but efforts like this seem to take us one step forward and two steps backward.
Yes I did watch it to the end just to hear the warning of how we could end up like the now extinct dinosaurs. I think I had better stop now before I really tell you how disappointed I was on this 3D outing.
Thank you for this very informative review of the show LesIsTechSavy. I'm a big fan of Discovery channel documentaries, if they're well produced of course. That being said, it's unfortunate that this documentary did not live up to your expectations but it is great to see that the Discovery channel is taking the first steps to producing programs in 3D. I'm sure that better produced 3D stuff is on the way
