Frankly I found Jurassic disappointing. What really let it down was the shots of the Dinosaurs, particularly when you first see them. Very little 3D depth and the shots were soft and looked out of place.

Did you see it in the theater or home? I was dissapointed at the theater but the bluray was excellent.

The Three Musketeers should be added to your list as great 3D movies. It has excellent 3D and even popouts. The scenes in the castle in Paris are very detailed and colorful.

Very cool! I own The Three Musketeers on 3D Blu-ray, but have not watched it yet. Looking forward to seeing it, as well as Puss and Boots. Thanks for the info.wink.gif

- Prometheus is another one, and has some glorious visuals.
- IMAX Space Station. And a couple very good popout gags for those who demand it.

Very good:

- Dredd has some good 3D. It sucks you into the story.
- Life of Pi, again, the 3D enhances the movie.

Note that I enjoyed the above two especially for the feel of being there. But that made my wife highly uncomfortable. tongue.gif Being in a horrid dystopia in the former, and among dangerous creatures in the latter was not her idea of a fun movie. Anyway, isn't one of the main virtues of 3D the heightened feeling of "being there"?

Pretty good, but nothing special:

- Avengers, John Carter, Captain America, Tron Legacy, The Hobbit.

Bleh:

- Tintin.
- Transformers 3. A thoroughly stupid movie, and I wasn't impressed by the 3D.

Special Category:

- IMAX Under the Sea. Everyone seems to mention the Potato Cod popout. The 3D overall is good. It's just that Jim Carrey's narration is so annoying, especially that bit of preachiness at the end.

Awesome! Thank you for those recommendations!smile.gif

I did not see this one at the theater, but on 3D Blu-ray I thought it was AMAZING!!!!! In my honest opinion, I think it looks even better (PQ wise) than the 2D version. The 3D effects really impressed me, and my guests. I think they did an awesome job with the 3D aspects of it!

But as with any 3D movie, some people like it and others don't.

I saw JP at the theaters and home in 3D. It looks better at home by a wide margin.

Big time, they all look better at home. I don't know why I bothered seeing The Hobbit 3D at a theater. Mind you, it was regular RealD. I confess I've never seen an IMAX 3D presentation.

For modern stuff, the top tier native 3-D movies would include "My Bloody Valentine", 'Journey to the Center of the Earth", "Hugo", "The Great Gatsby", even "Step Up 3-D". All of these are much deeper than the other modern films, as are many of the IMAX documentaries.

The conversions are getting better too.

They really need to ratchet up the parallax though. These 2.5D movies aren't cutting it.

I mentioned in some thread that I took my 3D CFTBL to BB and to view on Sony's 65" UHD set. Wow! Much better than on my calibrated 65VT50. PQ is much brighter, sharper and clearer.

Apparently the use of two projectors for Imax 3D greatly enhances the experience. Twice as many lumens. Seeing the hobbit in HFR 3D was one of the best 3D experiences for me, ever.

I also loved Dredd 3D bluray, it's SO well done. Over the top but in a good way. And the tight scenes in the corridors, the 3D felt very real like you were there.

I have a vizio 65" 2012 model -with a Panasonic 3d player.

3d movies I own from best to worst- Trying my best to rate the 3d effects only.

Avatar- 3d effect A+
Avengers- surprising since it was post converted- A+
I-max space station 3d A-
wrath of the titans B
finding nemo C
dredd- 3d ok-hated movie C
jurasic park C
ice age continental drift C-

Will be watching more soon and will update

Directv has 1 free 3d channel- some of the old imax 3d stuff on there is cool with pop outs.

OK, so I've got to ask this question, because I wonder if it's an issue with my ripped copy:

Someone rated JP as having the best combo of Depth and Pop-Out. There was pop-out in JP 3D? Where? I did think the 3D version added some depth to the environments, but there was no popout for me at all to speak of. MAYBE at one point at the end of the movie there was a scene where a Raptor head popped out a bit, but that would really be it.

Did I miss something?

It's not obvious pop-out, but it's there. Mostly dinosaur heads and stuff that technically stick out of the screen, but it's not really an in-your-face kind of effect.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mister Anderson.

I only own two 3D blu-ray videos, Jurassic Park and Avatar. Even though Jurassic Park is a conversion, I feel that it is more enjoyable to watch than Avatar in 3D. So... if I were to rate all of the 3D blu-ray's I've watched, it'd go something like this:

Jurassic Park
Avatar

My next purchase will probably be Dredd and then the Toy Story trilogy. I use an LG 55LA6200 & Sony BDP s5100 by the way..

Call me EC.

Well, I finally got Avatar 3D; it was under 20 bucks at Amazon. I resisted so long because of all the reviews about its didactic, smack you on the head "message". You know; all the going native, noble savage stuff. I'd already seen A Man Called Horse and Dances with Wolves. tongue.gif The former was good, the latter not so much.

Anyway, visually Avatar is a treat. And for a several-years-old movie, the 3D is good. Subtle, but good. Though I can see why fans of popout aren't enthusiastic about it. Still, I think it's worth getting.

How To Train Your Dragon is currently my top 3D disc given not just how well and noticeable it is (in a natural way) but that it involves you into the action scenes, especially the flying scenes so much more.

In general I prefer the animated 3d movies not only because they have full control over all depth aspects, I've found that given the nature of animated movies seem to suffer less notable picture detail impacts than 'live action' movies from the reduced resolution and line issues (I sit right past the border of where I can see the horizontal lines)

I haven't seen a conversion with pop-out. I have JP but it's still in it's plastic wrap. I guess I'll have to open it and see but I doubt it.

Prometheus, Hugo, and Tron: Legacy stand out as my 3D favorites on my LG 65LM6200. Pacific Rim and Sector 7 weren't too bad either. Top Gun and Predator I'm almost ashamed I own.
