You are in for an exciting journey ! I started out looking at buying the biggest 3d tv out there, but fortunately ended up buying a PJ ! See below my journey

Do your research on the 3 budget PJ's and get one that fits your needs....you will come out winning over buying a TV anyday

My favorite 3D bluray so far has been Coraline. The depth was great and there were some really awesome popout scenes. It also helps that it was a unique and interesting story. Best way to describe the overall experience is a bad, or good depending on your perspective acid trip.

Well, I just got a new favorite 3D demo: Kung Fu Panda 2. Good movie and amazing 3D usage. Tons of popouts throughout. It is a really beautiful movie too.

I'll have to go back and watch it again. It was cool but IMHO didn't take the top spot for my fave animated 3D which is currently tied between Despicable Me and Monsters vs. Aliens.

I did finally get around to watching my Rio 3D Blu ray today and that one is pretty nice too. Brilliant colors and very nice 3D usage.

I picked up rio when walmart was selling it for 18 bucks. I haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet but I'm really looking forward to it.

Just watched Rio last night. Rio is good, fun color. It wasn't in my favorite for effects or story though. Dispicable Me roller coaster scene is awesome and it is a great movie, but I thought Panda2 had cool popouts throughout, and a lot of low camera angles showing lots of depth. My mom joked that her eyes hurt from getting arrows and such shot into them
I will have to borrow MVA and check that out.

I hated KP2 in theaters when i saw it in 2D...the image was dim, coloras faded and story was a let down

Then I bought the 3D version and watched it at home, and impression was 180 degrees opposite....on my 3010 PJ it was bright, vibrant colors, lots and lots of depth and popouts and all of a sudden I loved the story as well....goes to show good 3D can make a huge difference to story

I have read on several forums that Toy Story 3 is the best 3d other than Avatar.
I'm renting it soon to see for myself.
Anybody watched it yet that can verify this?

This must be some cruel practical joke ! None of Pixars's 3d movies take advantage of 3d....saw TS3 in 3d at the theater...what a royal waste of money

Well, Panda 2 was much better at home than the theater. Maybe TS3 will be too. I thought it was pretty boring in the theater. Looking forward to watching TS1 and 2 in 3D now though. Shrek 2 in 3D was great. Not a lot of 3D effects, but a great movie. Avatar isn't the best for 3D effects really, and not the greatest story either, but man, what an amazing film to watch.

I don't care much for the animated movies, but Pixar has done 2 non-animated movies that I feel are better than most. Pirates and Tron both utilize immersive depth without crap pokin at ya.

And since Disney owns the studio, they do some work on other movies too.

Actally, (in a manner of speaking), it's the other way around: Pixar is Disney... not quite the same thing...

j's point was that Pixar didn't make Pirates or Tron.

Yes Pixar will not stoop down to Disneys level as far as 2D goes....for 3D they missed the boat to Dreamworks

Some of the Pixar staff were story consultants on Tron. But you're correct that they didn't direct or (to my knowledge) have anything to do with the 3D on the production.

Found the ultimate live action 3D effect movie: Harold and Kumar Christmas. Wow that movie goes out of it's way to throw stuff in your face. Well, and to offend everyone. If you aren't easily offended it is a great demo. Actually you don't have to be too easy to offend.

saw Final destination 5 3D.....one of the best out there....on par with Avatar and considering its live action, they really pulled this off

and if you want to be shamelessly indulged in pop outs, Sammys adventure is on the top of the food chain

I was sorry to see this comment re. the Toy Story movies in 3D. Loved all three of them in 2D and was getting ready to buy the 3D set. So the 3D was not good or ???
Anybody's opinion is welcomed.

I have been spoiled by DreamWorks 3d which will indulge you in pure 3d awesomeness....Piaxar 3d is very subtle....but my comment is mainly countering the false info some one put out saying its avatar quality.....having said that, I myself am considering upgrading my toystroy collection to 3d just for the fun

Amazon has Under The Sea for under $20 currently! Awesome price for one of the best 3D demos out there.

You can check the Amazon prices for any of my top 5 3D blu rays here: http://3d-tv-gaming.blogspot.com/201...your-3dtv.html.

We just watched this last night for the first time. Very good 3d! It's a bit short though, I couldn't justify spending more $20 on it due to it's length. I hope the price of 3d movies starts to decline in the near future!

Finally watched Harold and Kumar 3D. Lots of pop out scenes so if that's what you like, you won't be disappointed by this movie. I thought it was pretty funny too. A very enjoyable movie all around.

Awesome post. I have been keeping my eye on this combo forever but having seen all three in theaters (in 3D) it was hard to for me to spend $65+ from amazon. For $42 buck shipped it was a no brainer.

First, I was thrilled to get a widescreen 3D movie. So many of them are standard 16:9. Some of the 3d effects were great, and it seems that 3D was the entire purpose of the movie!

I kept laughing to myself afterwords at the "I HATE PANCAKES" Waffle-Bot.

First let me start off by saying that I have the following 3D movies:

Cirque Du Solei-Journey Of Man(Imax)
Drive Angry
The Lion King
How To Train Your Dragon
Yogi Bear
Open Season
Avatar
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (1 & 2)
Journey To The Center Of The Earth
Mega Mind
Under The Sea (Imax)
Rio

And my prized movie that blows them all away for 3D is called:
A Turtle's Tale, Sammy's Adventure

The 3D in this animated movie is beyond words. It blows away every one of the movies listed above and puts Avatar to shame. I just can't tell you how incredible the 3D is. The whole movie basically takes place out of the screen and in your living room.

If there is one and only one movie that was ever made to Demo 3D, this is the one. It's 3D done right! It's also got a DTS Master Audio Sound Track.

Yes, some of my other movies listed above do have some good 3d moments but Sammy's Adventure is consistant from start to finish. It's just plain awesome. This is the movie that would make me go out and buy a 3D TV if I didn't already have one. Not many movies can make you feel that you're actually part of it...this one will! You must own this one at any price! It is worth it.

Of all the 3D movies I have seen, including Toy Story 3 in the Theater (not very impressive), A Turtle's Tale, Sammy's Adventure is hands down the best I've seen yet. This is my new reference material.
