Imax: Rescue. Just a brilliant doc. Great subject matter and the 3D is amazing.

The Amazing Spider man. Pretty good throughout the whole film, but during the action set-pieces, it's just brilliant. Much better than the 3D was in the cinema.
Iv'e pre-ordered Dredd3D,read some reviews saying the 3D is great.....we will see

It's the only film that's 3D has impressed me at the cinema. I usually find the 'Real3D' at the flicks really flat, but all the slow mo drug sequences in Dredd looked great, so i'm expecting them to look amazing at home on the PJ.
I still think Coraline is the best 3D film available. I enjoy the film on its own merits, but the use of 3D makes it more engaging.
Depth is used very consciously to sculpt different emotional landscapes. The "real world" is purposefully drab and flat, while the "other world" looks enticingly vivid and deep. It's a markedly different experience from the 2D version.

Having now watched Finding Nemo in 3D i can recommend it, far better than others i have seen so far.
All the other 3D films i have are up on the same Blu-ray disk as 2D & 3D versions, so not dedicated & this may have some bearing on picture quality. Until now i thought Hugo was probably the best.

Would also recommend Hugo, Ocean Wonderland is an interesting documentary but has some fantastic 3D in it, I had fish swimming more than halfway across the room! Other times you feel like you are looking through a glass bottomed boat (real sense of depth) and best of all its only £7.25 on Amazon! Tangled although a cartoon is also very good.
Some of this years latest, out of date technology.
Madagasca 3 saw at cinema brilliant and very funny was our first 3d experience and enjoyed it

I saw Life of Pi in 3D at the cinema over the weekend and thought the 3D was very effective, especially in certain key scenes.
Previous films where I thought the 3D worked well were Avatar, Tron Legacy, Hugo and Prometheus.

'My Bloody Valentine'. One of the best flicks i've seen, for 3D. Real depth to everything, and great 'pop out' moments. Some of these low budget horror flicks are really showing the big budget, studio movies how it's done, when it comes to 3D, which when you think about it, is just ridiculous.
You have this film, which probably had a budget of $15,000,000, at most, and it's 3D is brilliant. Then you have massive films like 'Thor', 'Green Lantern' and 'Avengers', with $100,000,000 + budgets, and the 3D is flat, almost non-existant rubbish. I know they've been post-converted, but that's no excuse because i've seen very good P-C flicks too, again with miniscule budgets in comparison.
