RE: Can anybody recommend a good 3D film?

Thanks for all the great responses. Did see the Hugo trailer and it looks great, but is it sad?
Trying to avoid CG but i have to agree that Tangled is a fanatstic film, may have to upgrade to 3D on that. Suprisingly found 'The Smurfs' do be a great family film, didn't expect it.

Anybody know of any great future 3D releases to look out for?

If you can cope with animation, I absolutely *love* How To Train Your Dragon...

I also loved Hugo.

Sacha Baron Cohen nearly spoiled it for me. Miscast.

Brave has been reviewed as a reference 3D expereince...yes it is animation but if you want to get the best from 3D then this will not disapoint,and dont forget Phromethius, again stated as one of the best 3D movies out there, this was filmed with 3D-Cameras so has not been converted, mixed reviews but worth a look, I was very impressed.

Hugo is great in 3D. I also like the 3D version of Prometheus.

RE: Can anybody recommend a good 3D film?

I've just gotten a 3d projector and I can defo offer you an awesome rec:

UNDER THE SEA. An IMAX doc. Me and the missus have watched it twice and i'm not kidding when I say it has the best bit of 3D in it that I have seen. The whole film is beautiful and multi-layered, but there's one part in particular, featuring a big Cod fish that amazed and freaked us out, at the same time. The fish slowly turns towards the camera and swims slightly forward and it actually seems to swim out of the screen. Having a 106" fish head seemingly inches away from your face is somethig to behold!

I'll come back with some more recs hopefully afterth weekend. I've got the 3D versions of Avatar, Prometheus, Amazing Spiderman, Underworld Awakening, Saw, Thor and a few docs (Got high hopes for 'ultimate wave', a sufing one)

Yep, Final Destination 5. The 3D is cracking all the way through, but the pop-out of the screen parts during the death scenes are really great. Shame the film is poo Wink

Prometheus, I thought, was a great film in the end, after nearly losing me after the first half hour. The 3D was subtle throughout the majority of the duration, but there were a few moments that were quite emmersive and impressive. Not the best I've seen for 3D, though.

Underworld: Awakening was actually very good for 3D and the film is just what you'd expect if you've seen any of the other films in the series. As dumb as they are, I don't mind them as spectacles.

Good choice on Underworld Awakening. I liked the 3d on this rather than the pop up book affect of a lot of these films. Thanks bretty I didn't want to be first to say it. 

I  found A monster in Paris very well done. 

 

Sorry, but Hugo is typical of what I dislike about 3d.

I've got high hopes for 'the amazing spiderman'. I'm hoping the bit where he's web-slinging, first-person, looks amazing.

Resident Evil; Retribution. The picture, 3D and the sound track are both great, even if the film is a little 'meh'.

 

Fire ants; The invincible army. Great picture, with some nice 3d and a really interesting doc, to boot.

Ultimate Wave Tahiti. A surfing doc with 9 time world champion Kelly Slater. Sometimes the film's 3D is a little flat, but in other parts it's spectacular.
