I imported Mr. Peabody and Sherman in 3D for my cousin's kid who is a big fan (his birthday was at the beginning of this month) and that has some of the best 3D I've seen thus far on a home theater setup (projector, hd131xe) It's bright, vivid, colorful and the depth is absolutely astounding on it -- felt like I could walk into the movie, the roads look like they stretch forever.

Highly recommend checking it out once it hits BD in the states/uk next month.

I appreciate this thread, even many years after it was begun, as I just finally upgraded my projector to a 3D capable model, and want to get a bunch of material to have fun with it.

Has there been any recent movies in 3D that are really impressive ? I haven't watch a 3D Blu Ray in a long time. The only place near me that rent's them charges like 6 bucks, and is spotty on the selection. I know there is some online rental places, but haven't tried them out yet..

I wish Redbox had more 3D versions. Sometimes they will have a 3D version by accident, heh..

Maleficent and Hugo are the best ones I have seen.

Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy? Best most recent 3d title I have seen.

Just got Gravity on 3D in the mail from Amazon today. The new version coming out next month has Atmos, but no 3D which is disappointing. Really wanted to try out both.

Its not an accident, it would be whenever there is no other choice such as when one disc has both 2D and 3D.

Last night I scored what I consider to be a MASSIVE home theater find. I'm adding 3D and some other capabilities to my theater. Found out that the Art of Flight was also released in 3D in limited markets. Can't find it here in the US. But I got on eBay and, following a hunch based on some research, ordered the German 3D Blu-Ray from Europe. Sure enough, it showed up last night in the mail, Region 2. The case, menus, and movie are all in German.

HOWEVER...

It can't be only Region 2 in reality, because it plays on my PS3 and PS4. (and those aren't region-free, unless I missed something) AND, a secondary audio track includes English DTS-MA 7.1.

So, I just put up with the menus in German, (and ignore the outer case) and I get this movie now in 3D and lossless 7.1 audio! Only Dolby Atmos (or upcoming DTS format) would make it any better. Haven't given it the full run-through yet, but just checking out a few scenes, I'm ASTOUNDED. Incredible depth on outdoor mountain shots. You can see the individual snowboarder or helicopter drop off a cliff and track in 3D against the rocks.

This 2D Blu Ray movie was a must-buy, top demo material, for any serious home theater enthusiast before. But now, 3D has taken it to a whole new level. This is solidly my #1 demo disc, head and shoulders above anything else. Enthusiasts, ignore this one at your own loss.

So this will definitely play in region A players? I LOVE, LOVE the 2d disc which I have watched many times and would LOVE to get the 3d, but have never imported it due to the fact that I thought it was region locked. If this will play in my region A player I am all over it!

I know Netflix had (has?) the 3d version available for streaming which I checked out part of, but would love to have this in full blu ray quality.

I can't make any guarantee for others. But I can definitely say that the German language "Region 2" 3D Blu Ray of Art of Flight I received plays on my Region 1/A Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. I see that the Italian 3D version is now available from third parties on Amazon.com. If I were still looking for this product, I'd consider taking a chance on it.

Some recommendations from a 3D fanatic (you should bear in mind that recent post-converted releases can rival almost any native 3D presentation):

• Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
• Pacific Rim
• Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
• Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2
• Man of Steel
• Hobbit Trilogy
• Life of Pi

All of these are great 3D experiences with great stories to boot.

I watched Exodus: Gods and Kings last night and I have to say that it has some of the best 3D (before and after the screen) effects I have seen to date. I was hesitant as the movie has received some pretty bad reviews but was surprised how the entire effort sucked me in and held me thoroughly entertained.

You want pop-outs? The upcoming 3D RARITIES might just end up being the king of the hill. Below is an advance look (which I found on another site and reposting here.)

The breadth of material is remarkable - ranging from shorts as early as 1922 and going up to the animated Boo Moon, featuring Casper the Friendly Ghost. Some of these films have been shown at the 3-D Expos in California and Suffern, NY, but a lot of it is making its debut here. Having personally run some of these on dual-35mm projectors (and also having seen many of them on 35mm and earlier test video transfers) I can say with absolute confidence that they have never looked better. Bob's technical director Greg Kintz has performed, literally, miracles with some of the faded and mis-aligned footage. With so much on-board I can only recount a few highlights, one being a terrific "Pennsylvania Railroad" promotional piece, another being the best-ever version of the stop-motion "Motor Rhythm." Test footage from the Lumiere Brothers is here along with American pioneers, four Norman McLaren animated shorts licensed from the National Film Board of Canada (presented in stereophonic sound), "Sam Space," Marciano vs. Walcott title fight, trailers, "Doom Town," burlesque, Slick Slaven, Beany & Cecil, etc. etc. An embarrassment of riches.

Nearly 2 1/2 hours long, this program is an essential addition to the collection of anyone interested in vintage 3-D films. Plus there's bonus material including audio commentary by Jack Theakston and Thad K. on several shorts, ViewMaster reels, comics, and even footage directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

NOTE: Fans of 3-D "Pop-Out" should play portions of this disc every single time they fire up their systems: tons of off-screen effects are present. And almost all of it better than anything you'll see in a modern 3-D film.

Guardians of the Galaxy
Hobbit 1, 2, 3

Agreed! Still probably the best live action movie 3d I have seen.

The Lichtmond series has fantastic 3d. Tons of pop out and excellent depth as well. Some of the most aggressive 3d out there and the audio is well recorded/mixed on top of it(although it is a LOT of fun to put your own music to these).

You are certainly entitled to your opinion Larry but for the wife & I it was pretty poor and she loves musicals. LONG way from "Best 3D Bluray Movie So Far". They did an outstanding job overhauling it but it was plain boring & we do appreciate older classic movies. JMHO
Nothing personal, glad you enjoyed it!

I didn't mean best MOVIE. I meant best quality 3-D. I do, however, love the movie, also.
