I own all three of those and quite honestly I enjoyed Monsters Vs. Aliens the most. It has the best CG of the three, in terms of story it's something both adults and children can enjoy for different reasons and in terms of 3D effects there is good depth and more pop-out "gimmicks" than the others. It exhibits a bit more ghosting than the other two but it still is my favorite 3D presentation so far.

Lots of folks have also raved about Ice Age 3D and Grand Canyon. I don't own either of those and refuse to pay the ridiculous eBay prices so I can't comment.

I'd have to say the new Samsung IMAX demo disc. The Galapagos movie is even better than Grand Canyon is.

I like grand canyon the best, the 3d in that one really pulled me into the documentary. Also, the opening credits with the water bubbles were really cool!

Yeah but they don't look anywhere close to as good as Blu-ray material.

GC has the best few scenes--but gets old fast. My favorite 3D is AIX Records Goldberg Variations Acoustica, my adult sons agree(but then again, they are musicians).

quick review of the 6 3D movies I have:

Ice Age 3 - good fun and great 3D
Coraline - this is a love it or hate it movie, but I love it. good 3D
Cloudy - fun, good 3D
Monsters vs Aliens - fun, great 3D
Monster House - kind of disturbing overall, but has its moments. great 3D
Clash of the Titans - not particularly fun though it has its moments, awful 3D

not sure if I'll ever watch Clash or Monster House again (once each), but the rest I've seen several times and still consider good investments.

The technical term is "crosstalk", which is a double image, or ghost, of objects on the screen. It's very distracting and currently is the major way 3D quality is measured. However, it's not necessarily the movie that has the issue, it's the TV. Plasma TVs are the best displays when it comes to watching 3D. The technology is so much faster than LCD/LED that it's naturally resistant to crosstalk. It becomes very noticeable once you see the difference. If 3D is a priority, STAY AWAY from LED TVs. They are much more expensive and are far worse than Plasma for 3D! DLP Mitsubishi TVs are also very good for 3D......very little crosstalk. PQ not quite as good as the best Plasma displays but you'll get the biggest screen for your dollar.

Should there have been a seperate disk in the Samsung Starter Kit in addition to Monsters vs Aliens? Friend of mine purchased a Samsung 8000 around 4 weeks ago and only got the MvA disk.

Are the Coraline and Ice Age you mention new full 3D discs, or the ones that came out a while ago with their own glasses?
