I'd add:
Step up 3d (dancing)
How to train your dragon
Tron Legacy
(maybe the hobbit, but I have not watched it yet)

Documentary: TT3D Closer to the Edge. (something about 200mph motorcycle racing through small city streets was just awesome)

Just watched; Art of Flight.....it's excellent 3D and lighting. While not technically a "movie", it's more of a "snow boarders meet mountains", type of film.
here's a preview in 3D; [URL][/URL]

IMAX's Rivers at Risk is a good demo of 3D done right. Of course, they've been shooting with dual camera rigs for quite some time.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Flying Swords of Dragon Gate. Dubbing isn't great and the martial artists fly like Superman but the 3D is the best I've seen in a live action film.

3D is good but the 2.4:1 aspect ratio definitely affects depth and pop on standard 1.78:1 3D TV's. Also thought the movie itself was mediocre at best.



For me, the best 3D can be found in the Imax documentaries: Under the Sea, Hubble 3D, Legends of Flight and Grand Canyon all have demo worthy material.

In terms of live action movies, Journey to the Center of the Earth and Journey 2: Mysterious Island have aggressive 3D with lots of pop, though the films, while fun, won't win any awards for writing or acting.

Men in Black 3, Jurassic Park and Captain America are the best post-converted 3D movies I've seen.

MegaMind and Meet the Robinsons are the best CGI 3D movies I've seen both in terms of effects and story.

That's my 2 cents.

maybe good for post conversions... but JP sucked in 3d... i didn't even finish watching the entire movie. the movie is like a 10/10. the 3d is like a 3/10 IMO

How/where did you see the movie? Yes, I will agree that the 3D is not the best, but that's more a problem with how the movie was originally made and the resulting grain, lens flare issues, etc. The 3D when the tram car is falling through the tree is quite good. The scenic views of the dinos are so-so due to the so-so cgi capability of that time period. But I still like it better in 3D than not.

Primitive CGI notwithstanding, the first shot of Grant and Ellie looking up at the bracheosaur exhibited great height and mass - a great example of 3D extending an image in my opinion. A late shot of the raptor jumping up towards the screen and popping out elicited some squeals and jumps both at the movie theater and at home. Despite the fact that the film is over 20 years old it still managed to elicit a lot of great 3D moments (far moreso than say Phantom Menace).

Looking at the packaging it doesn't say anything about which version it is but looking at Amazon the HK version has a different picture on the front. The one I have has this picture:

http://www.amazon.com/Flying-Special-Edition-Exclusive-Content/dp/B009T6EM4G/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1372512851&sr=8-7&keywords=flying+swords+of+dragon+gate

It's listed as unavailable.

Found it at Walmart for $18.40

http://www.walmart.com/ip/21618907?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227000000000&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=21486607510&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=19880599990&veh=sem

I did have a hard time trying to play the English subtitles but eventually got it to work and as I said the 3D was stunning, the first half of the movie with depth and the last part with things flying out at you.

I force my girlfriend into many a 3d movie. I know she's not the biggest fan of it. However she did say whoaaa that's so cool a few times while watching "the great and powerful oz". I myself was surprised that i liked it. I was only in it for the eye candy. Great depth some pop out and great picture quality I recommend it

My favourite 3D animated movie right now is Madagascar 3. Lots of out of the screen effects (negative parallax), great visuals and it is pretty funny to boot. A really nice 3D packag

I thought Jurassic Park 3D (at home) was incredible. It makes me think that some people saw a really poor presentation, since there are a lot that poo-poo it.

I think the disappointment stems from the fact that what people were expecting to see was dinosaurs in 3D and in reality most of the dinosaur shots were just not that good. The character shots were very good but I was quite disappointed when I saw the very first Dinosaur.

The thing is- the Dinos *were* in shown in 3-D correctly. If there would have been more depth or roundness to the Dinos, the result would essentially be hyper-stereo and also would have caused an effect in stereoscopic 3D known as minaturization, which takes away from the realism. This is what Guillermo del Toro fought against when WB wanted to convert PACIFIC RIM, and WB agreed. www.slashfilm.com/guillermo-del-toro-talks-pacific-rim-3d-conversion-what-can-i-tell-you-i-changed-my-mind/

JURASSIC PARK is a knockout conversion.

I thought JP was pretty good in the theater. I haven't seen it at home yet. I will get it someday.
I had not considered that "minaturization" effect of the rounded objects. I have seen this effect used in still photographs, and I can see where that would be a concern. However, one thing I dislike in stereoscopic 3D is when the things appear like flat cardboard objects merely placed near or far from the observer. I like how 3D looks on my system in Avatar. Things look real. To me. And the new "Wizard of Oz" makes things like fences and the landscape look like it is real and graduates into the distance properly.
I am just starting with 3D at home and have more to see to get acclimated in it. I do think there is something to the fact that the screen is smaller at home and one can see the entire presentation w/o moving one's head as much as at the "real" theater.

Was "King Kong" (2005) ever in 3D? A lot of the sequences seem like they'd look awesome in 3D.

I don't know if their is such a thing as must haves but my favorites are as follows:
Hugo
Avatar
Prometheus
Titanic
Avengers
Dredd (do not buy the eu/au release as the 3d has many issues not found in other releases)
Beauty and the Beast
Star Trek Into Darkness
Man of Steel
Coroline
Tron Legacy

Note this is for both the film and the 3d as I don't care how good the 3d is if the film isn't worth checking out.

If we are talking about quality 3d then the list is massive at this stage.

I need to check out Life of Pi and Pacific Rim which I should be able to do in the next week or so.
