Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

U2 3D Concert

I was about to tell people in front of me while watching the movie to sit down since they were standing in the theater when I realized it was the concert goers from the film and the 3D tricked me.

But, that's terrible 3D.

Of course, the unanimous decision should be : AVATAR.

How to Train your Dragon, no question.
Probably the only 3d film I've seen that I thought meaningfully benefitted from the stereopsis.

Jackass 3D - 4/10
Saw 3D - 7/10

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Either A Christmas Carol or Saw 3D, I don't really like watching movies in 3D.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Honestly I would have to say My Bloody Valentine 3D. Although Jackass 3D was entertaining as hell haha

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

"The Bubble": best 3D (Spacevision) but possibly the worst movie in history.

A toss-up between Avatar (best 3D in general) and How to Train Your Dragon (whose flight scenes are better than any one particular sequence in Avatar).

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

DEEP SEA 3D (IMAX)

The beauty of the huge IMAX screen is that so much of our vision is filled, we don't see it as a "window," but rather we are immersed in that environment. In IMAX, the movie extends from infinty "behind" the screen to in front of our noses. It feels like all one space.

In DEEP SEA 3D There was this wonderful shot of a great white shark just swimming in front of us. It was beautifully shot and felt so tangible. Underwater subjects lend themselves very well to 3D.

As for a 3D narrative movie, I thought My Bloody Valentine was well done. Not just the off screen effects, but watching it, I really felt like I was in that Pennsylvania coal town. The sense of presence was great.

AVATAR disappointed me when the depth of field was narrowed. People complained about trying to look at a flower in the foreground, but since it was out of focus, it sent mixed signals to the brain. I realize Cameron used the classic technique to focus on the subject he wanted us to watch, but his story should do that instead. 3D works best IMO when the depth of field is greatest--it best imitates our vision, even if it doesn't perfectly replicate it.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Avatar had really good 3D, but it didn't make good use of it.
Jackass had the only live action high framerate 3D I've seen, and it was awesome.
Toy Story was perfect 3D animation.

Tron Legacy had the most entertaining and exciting 3D I've seen.

It was 'Resident Evil: Afterlife', now it's easily 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.


Tron:Legacy's 3D disappointed me a lot. I was expecting huge things from it when it was said the technology used for it was a step up from Avatar. The end product looked too blurry in most places.

Personally, (barring Avatar) I enjoyed Captain America's 3D a lot, I felt they used it really well and wasn't converted as a gimmick.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

FD5 was the best 3D film I've ever seen on screen; I know IMAX has a lot to do with that and that it was filmed in 3D not converted. I'm going to go in order from the BEST to WORST of what I've seen.

1. Final Destination 5 (IMAX 3D)
2. Resident Evil: Afterlife (IMAX 3D)
3. Avatar (REAL D 3D)
4. Beowulf (REAL D 3D)
5. My Bloody Valentine (REAL D 3D)
6. The Final Destinaton (REAL D 3D)
7. Conan the Barbarian (REAL D 3D)

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

When the new print of "Dial M for Murder" was shown at the ICA in London, the person introducing it said that the distributors had no interest in showing it anywhere else and that the print had to be sent back to the US ASAP. How times have changed.
Hitchcock's use of 3D is so restrained that it makes a boring, stagebound movie even more so.
It's probably a character flaw but I feel cheated if things don't get hurled from the screen now and again.

Step Up 3D the daance sequences were amazing 3D

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Agreed - "Hugo" made the best use of 3D in a recent film. And I've seen the following in 3D: Despicable Me, The Avengers, Captain America, The Hobbit, Tintin.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

U23D was very unique experience as it had some very creative use to 3D never seen elsewhere. I especially love the filmmakers using 3D to collage several shots into one scene, and then fading in/out other shots to mix up the collage. There were only a few moments of those but they provided a very, very unique visual sensation that's quite difficult to describe in words.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

The current Blu-Ray 3D version of "Creature from the Black Lagoon" is very good although the restorers have supposedly altered the 3D window to make things more up front rather than retain the original greater impression of depth.
Even so, it's still impressive.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

The Great Gatsby. The 3D gave you the feeling that you were watching a play instead of a film. I was pleasantly surprised, usually I can't stand 3D.

"All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it."

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

The 3D quality on the most recent The Great Gatsby was absolutely incredible. I think it's the top one now.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Still, my absolute BEST 3D experience remains The Polar Express in IMAX 3D...one of the few times I shelled out money to see it twice in IMAX! Not to mention the movie is just so heart warming, it climbed the charts to #1 as my fav Christmas movie EVA!

I'd have to say my 2nd best experience currently goes to Pacific Rim also in IMAX 3D! Bought the 3D Blu Ray and has not dissappinted and is arguably the best 3D Blu Ray I currently own! Special features also reveal Mr. Del Toro was given more time to perfect the 3D in the film...and it certainly shows! Definite show off material people...can't urge you enough to buy it!

Special mentions to (don't laugh) Chicken Little and of course, Avatar which, at their respective times of release, were pretty nifty & mind blowing 3D Flicks when I went & saw them theatrically!

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Fort Ti – When the Indians shot flaming arrows at you, my grandmother moaned, shut her eyes & never looked at the rest of the movie! LOL. Having loved the "throwing in your face" gimmicks in the 1950's, I begged to be taken to every 3D flick and saw probably 50% of them. House of Wax was absolute killer, no pun intended. When Charles Bronson followed Phyllis Kirk in the museum, I first thought someone was standing right in front of me until he walked into the screen. Phantom of the Rue Morgue started with a woman screaming in the streets of Paris and funning right up to your face crying, "Murder, Murder in the Rue Morgue!" It Came from Outer Space, The Mad Magician and Inferno were very effective.

In the early '80's I loved the photography in Coming at You! as well as Halloween 3D. But that attempted 3D revival didn't last long as movie goers didn't want it.

Of the current crop of 3D movies I liked Avatar, Hugo and (just seen) Pompeii the best. For the extra admission fee, I feel it's insulting to advertise a movie in 3D which was not actually shot in the process but gimmicked afterwards to simulate depth. Whether or not the producers want to immerse viewers in the action (which 3D at its best does), it's a confidence game not to have used two cameras and an elaborate depth field to create the illusion. JMHO

I hope whoever owns the rights to most of those '50's 3D flicks will (if the prints/negatives still exist) remaster them and issue them on BluRay 3D. Can there live a breathing man who doesn't want to see The Revolt of Mamie Stover in 3D? Or hum and sing along with Kiss Me Kate? Or see Vincent Price manning his buzz saw and crematorium again? Just asking! :-)

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

It's a pity that so few of the 50s classics are readily available as movies like "House of Wax" and "It Came from Outer Space" make most modern offerings look rather feeble by comparison.
Even now on the big (and small) screen, "House of Wax" still thrills people.

Avatar sorry nothings better
most 3d movies have maybe 20 total minutes of actuall 3d footage avatar had like over an hour of 3d footage and it was shot pre production 3d alot of 3d movies now to converted post production

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Watch "The Bubble" and you might change your mind. Awful movie but the best 3D ever,

"Say it with flowers . . . give her a Triffid."

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

It's a toss-up between Hugo and Beowulf for me. The Bubble has great 3d with one of the best pop-outs ever, but the movie was bad.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

Every 3-D movie I've seen so far was entirely 3-D. Including AVATAR.

For fiction movies, HUGO is great, as is THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS T.S. SPIVET, both shot in 3-D. THE BUBBLE does indeed have the single most impressive pop-out effect.

AVATAR disappointed me with its shallow depth of field. That style is okay for 2D movies but is distracting in 3-D. The environment was all CG, so that was a matter of choice, not necessity. The classic 3-D film INFERNO had superb photography and outstanding depth of field, making us feel we were in the desert with Robert Ryan.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

The recently restored "Gog" and "Miss Sadie Thompson" are also worth a look.

"Say it with flowers . . . give her a Triffid."

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.


The recently restored "Gog" and "Miss Sadie Thompson" are also worth a look.


Yes, both look very nice. The 3-D in each is pleasant with no eyestrain, and the colors vibrant, especially in GOG. The smokey room in "Sadie" when she sings made for a very interesting 3-D effect.

Re: Best 3D in a movie that you saw.

"Gog" is particularly impressive because one eye-view was completely faded out. How they restored it is a mystery.
"Miss Sadie Thompson" has many claustrophobic interior scenes which 3D enhances very effectively.
