Default Questions about 3D use

If i say have a 3d blu ray player and put in a 3d movie, would hypothetically i would be able to use any tv to display the images and use either polarized or active glasses to join the images? what is the role of a tv, hdtv, and 3dtv in regards to displaying 3d content?

might sound like a dumb question but im sure u guys can quickly answer for me.

Generally you will want to use a 3D Television or projector to display the image, these will have 120-240Hz ratings, and be marketed as 3D-ready. A 3D movie is in it's most basic form, the same movie over-lapped to provide a perception of depth, or in other words two instances of the same movie on the same screen at once, one for each eye. A 3D-ready TV has improved processing power for this to happen.
There are no dumb questions, only avoided mistakes.
I have found the active glasses to provide a much better viewing experience, but they gave me headaches after awhile.
