The Lion King looked amazing in 3D. It's a gorgeous film in both 2D and 3D.

However, since this thread is about "Best POP-OUT effects" I can only say that I noticed only one decent pop-out in The Lion King. It's a brief moment in the scene near the end of the movie when Simba returns to Pride Rock to confront Scar. Scar leaps at Simba -- For our point of view we see Scar's outstretched arms and claws thrusting out of the screen. If you blink you'll miss it.

The bird (Zazoo?) pops out at a few points in the film, most notably just before the King musical number.

Let me reply in 2 categories: First, for family movies I would rate TANGLED and THE LION KING as having some of the best 3D affects. Second, for limited audience movies I would give FINAL DESTINATION and RESIDENT EVIL AFTERLIFE my top picks and in that order BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and ALICE IN WONDERLAND family movies and PIRANHA and AVATAR limited audience movies would get honorable mentions. This is based on 18 titles in my collection.

So because depth is more important to YOU others are wrong for liking the gimmicks? Are we not allowed to like or dislike whatever we want for whatever reason we want? I also happen to enjoy seeing things floating around the room and found Fright Night made great use of 3D, especially when Vampires would meet their demise. On the other hand I just went to see Adventures of Tin Tin in 3D and wanted to ask for $3 of my admission refunded because I felt that the movie would have been virtually identical in 2D. That's just my opinion and I believe I am entitled to it.

my only problem with Alice in Wonderland is it was converted to 3D and thus it loses a lot of it's beautiful colors while watching with the 3D glasses otherwise I agree it looks good. My favorite for 3D is Fright Night, I think it looks fantastic.

Might sound a little bad.. But, I gotta say.. My Bloody Valentine had some great effects for what it was.. It was the red / blue 3D. But, when that axe was thrown, even my wife jerked outta the way.

I hear Avatar is great in blu 3D. I have it, just haven't watched it yet.

I did not particularly like ALICE IN WONDERLAND in 2D, but I did find it very entertaining in 3D. I have a Panasonic 65VT25 television and a SONY BDP-S570 blu-ray player and found the colors to be absolutely stunning. I'll have to check the other threads to see if certain television set/player combinations reproduce the 3D colors better than others. For those wondering why I chose the Sony instead of the Panasonic. I bought my television during the time that there was a waiting list for the 65VT25 and while the store was willing to negotiate on the price and include the AVATAR/2 GLASSES combo pack at no extra charge, the free Panasonic blu-ray player was left for the smaller screen in stock televisions. Thanks for the Fright Night tip, I'll have to add it to my wish list.

Default Best 3D BR

In my opinion, Under the Sea 3D is by far the best to date in terms of 3D graphics. Very little ghosting, and you really feel like you are swimming through a reef etc at points. One scene has a huge Potato Cod (Grouper) literally in your lap! We find ourselves reaching out and trying to grab his big lower jaw heh heh. Also The IMAX Grand Canyon Adventure - River at Risk disc is fantastic. You will come upon a scene of a first person perspective being in a river raft in the rapids and you really start dodging the splashes...a a rule you cant go wrong with most of the IMAX 3D releases. I should also mention, Tahitian Wave 3D is excellent if you like surfing and / or islands / ocean types of documentaries. This disc was VERY well done. I can't stress that disc enough. As far as movies, I would have to recommend Disneys A Christmas Carol, which IMO is the BEST 3D MOVIE (not documentary) out there still. Very well done, and on large sets, you really are in the movie at times. The opening scenes flying over London, and some scenes later on really put you "in" the film. A little dark in places, but overall simply fantastic. Despicable Me is ok, great movie, but I felt that the 3D could have been touched up and more added. Same with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Same thoughts there, as Despicable.

Some to avoid, again in my opinion:

Piranha 3D - last 1/4 of the movie is well done, first three are terrible!

Clash of the Titans 3D - seriously where is the 3D in this flick? - great movie, terrible 3D effects. (was so bad I tried to return it but they would only exchange for another of the same - boo!)

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 - save your money, flick isnt that great nor is the 3D, sadly.

If anyone has any suggestions for some other great 3D releases Id love to hear, the wife and I love to sit and watch on our Panasonic 65 inch and get lost for a few hours. What a blast.

G-Force 3D - Probably have the most incredible depth and pop-out effect I have seen so far on Blu-ray 3D. I really enjoyed this movie.

Just saw Under the Sea on 3net (directv) and that potato cod scene is AMAZING! Probably the most impressive pop out I have seen yet on my 110" screen! It only is up for about 10 seconds but he keeps pushing further and further out of the screen! It's awesome pop out! Glad I dvr'd it!

Drive Angry has axes, bullet casings, blood and wood popping up, Monsters vs. Aliens has immediate pop out moments, Final Destination 5 is awesome for pop outs!

Agreed, that flick has some asskicking, blood splattering, not to mention a good story line too. I enjoyed watching this one. I've seen it 3 times since I've own it from the release date.

I love a good pop-out effect; precisely because they're so infrequent. If there were one a minute, and things were constantly thrusting out of the screen in my face, I'd probably start to get a little distracted and annoyed. It's probably no accident that several of the movies with the most numerous pop-out effects are actually the worst in terms of story or character development; the pop-out is just about all they have that makes them worth watching or owning. I think that's probably why it's labeled by some as a "gimmick". While I wouldn't go so far as to call it a gimmick, I do think it's used to its best effect in moderation. Except perhaps for the horror genre, every scene of a movie isn't going to lend itself well to pop-out 3-D effects.

Disney 3-D movies are my favourite, though most aren't really heavy on pop-outs so far (they all tend to have a handful of really good ones, though); Pixar in particular uses it beautifully. I'm going to have to check out some of IMAX's offerings, though, after reading this thread.

A lot of great suggestions here everyone.

I really need to start keeping up with this thread.

I have a bit of a stupid question here...Has anyone watched a 3-D film at a commercial theater and then later on 3-D BD? If so, was the 3-D the same as in the theater? Was it the same experience?

I am curious because I have not seen many 3-D movies at the theater due to not having a commercial theater equipped to show then within an hours drive from me.

In fact, I have only seen Shrek 4 and Rio at the theater in 3-D.
Other then the (few) 3-D BDs I own, I have only watched Drive Angry and Final Destination 5 via 3-D streaming on VuDu.
Blu since September 22, 2009.

TBH it depends on your set-up. The larger the screen the better the experience normally. As you will be aware cinema screens fill your field of view therefore immersing you completely, whereas home viewing on smaller screens give more of a window effect as opposed to a whole immersive effect. I have a 42" screen and the home effect is very nice if I sit close enough. It's passive too so the 3D effect feels a lot like watching it in cinema, but of course the screen is nowhere near as big

Also what you have to also bear in mind is that some 3D TVs at the cheaper end of the market can have questionable 3D qualities.
