Due to the time of year I went with Polar Express. The depth seemed increased but it didn't blow me away. But I'll take your advice and save Titanic for last if it's the best.

Whatever you do, avoid Pirates 4. Resident Evil Retribution is one of the best BDs out there btw.

Go with Captain America next followed by Avengers. Both have nice foreground placement and nice layer separation.

Out of all those 3D movies Captain America is the only one I own and seen, the 3D in Captain America is really good. It has a great amount of depth and some really cool pop out scenes.

One should always get a good FIRST impression when it comes to 3D. From your list, start with Titanic, followed by Nemo. Then you can work your way down your list.

Default What is considered the best 3D movie or documentary?

hi,

So i've just gone and bought a new 3D Panasonic GT50, along with a new Panasonic BD-Player and the 2012 glasses.

And truth be told, i can't ever see myself going crazy on 3D...

BUT !!!!! I would like that one 3D movie or documentary to go wow too ! Especially given i've just spilled $100 on the glasses, and $90 on the player !! Still kicking myself, given i have a PS3, which will do the 3D for me, for my ONE movie that i'll get !! doh !

What is considered the best 3D effect movie or documentary out there?

TY

Since there is no "one" movie that is the "best" I will say that after reading the majority of the posts in the 3d section that Sammys Adventures is mentioned the most. If you are in the US you will have to import it from YesAsia at a premium.. I think I paid $30 or so. Not sure about the documentary.. I have a few but havent watched any of them yet.

ok if not one best, what is a list of impressive 3d movies. Not so much as in the movie being good, but the 3d done really well.

$35.26 shipped to NJ... I might just have to order. I never actually watched the whole thing of Sammy 1.. just watched a bit to see how great it actually was. Man I waste a ton of $ on blurays....

You can rent Sammy's Adventures on VUDU for like $5 or so, and then purchase it flat out to own forever for $17.99 if you have a PS3 or some other method to watch it that way. I just bought it that way, and it works just perfectly. The 3D effects are so amazing and I, also, highly recommend watching it.

oh well, i just went ahead and bought Avatar, even though I've already got it. Its a good film and watching it in 3D is worth the extra admission price.

I have seen Hugo mentioned many times, and Step Up 3D has some great effects too, but looks more 'natural' or real (as if you were actually there), which animation or fiction can't achieve.

Although "(clicks stopwatch) Boy, THAT cult doesn't miss a danged trick, does it? " =/= "Best".

While my instincts are to go with the recommendations for Hugo, I'd suggest narrowing down the questions first. How about asking for the best movie OR the best documentary, and that way, if you'd just asked for the best documentary, we could say "IMAX: Born to Be Wild", or such-like.
Fanboy "What's the best stuff like ever?" threads are very, very hard to answer.

All i was really looking for is any material that really shows the capabilities of the 3d, rather than making sure the movie was good.. A little like what scene brings out the best of your home theater.. (which for me indecently is Master and Commander, the boat creaking, before cannons get unleashed)

I would have through some kind of aquarium BD would be good. Went for Avatar in the end cos its a good mix of CGI and the movie was directed and shot with 3d in mind, so there's going to be some decent 3d effects to impress. You see, the missus doesn't know it yet, but i've just shelled out $200 on two pairs on Panny shades and a new BD Player.. I've got to woe her with all this amazing tech otherwise I'm brown bread ! (dead!)

If you're looking for a quick showoff for cheap, "Rescue 3D" is under 14 bucks and has a couple really good pop moments. In particular there is one with a fire fighter on the top of a truck mounted ladder; the truck is sunk well into the TV however the ladder extends out of the screen with the man attached. It's a glorious 3d shot, probably one of the best pop outs I've seen in a long time.

I can't lie though, a lot of the shots in that movie are either really good, or really bad (way to strong, to much distance between the viewpoints). It's a mixed bag but definitely some good 3d and I'm not disappointed in the purchase.

I'll snap a cross eye photo and post it later if I have time.

Kingdom of plants 3D offers over 7 hrs of most amazing 3d in documentary. Be warned, you can have nightmares about some of the nasty plats

In documentaries this is closest to Sammy quality in terms of 3D depth and popouts

I think after you see Avatar and are amazed you might be quite a bit more optimistic about purchasing more 3D blu's. I suggest you check out Hugo. It was created from scratch with 3D in mind on how they were going to tell the story. Its definitely on par with Avatar as what I would say is the best, maybe Hugo is even a little better.

Edit: If you've invested over $200 on just glasses and a player you definitely should be getting more than just one movie. I've heard of people buying 3D TV's just for one movie because they absolutely had to have it in 3D, but I've never heard of someone just dropping the money on the player and glasses with almost no intent to use them.

sorry I stand corrected, its around 2.5 hours spread over 3 episodes. I had to watch it over several days given the length and it felt like 7 hrs

But very much worth it.

Titanic is astounding, but it's still Titanic. If you like the movie, you can't lose. Even if you don't like the movie, the 3d is stunning.
Cave of Forgotten Dreams by Herzog is often touted as one the best 3d docs.
Spielberg's Tintin and Scorsese's Hugo are great.
Finding Nemo is maybe the best all-around 3d movie I've seen.
