Not sure about which one is best. Probably Avatar or Legend of the Guardians

The worst is easy. The Last Airbender. It features the worst looking transfer of any 3D movie (it can barely be called a 3D movie) and its possibly the worst 100 million dollar plus movie ever made. Ive seriously seen better acting from 3rd grade school plays and the plot is incomprehensible.

WHY DOES M NIGHT SHAMAYN GET TO KEEP ON MAKING MOVIES?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Absolutely no question which is the worst and the biggest disappointment…….. drum roll…. It's really an anti-climax because it’s already been stated: Piranha. So bad I can’t find the words. Is this the same guy that did Avatar?
The best. Hmmmm... I really liked Tangled. Avatar is good but after the theatre experience the BD comes up short.

United Kingdom Best and Worst

As far as my best is concerned it's a toss-up between two: 'Legend of the Guardians' and 'IMAX: Hubble'. The 'Legends' movie has some of the most jaw-dropping sequences ever displayed on a cinema(and TV) screen and I never hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. But 'Hubble' ranks up there alongside it and is another jaw-dropping 3D excursion. The depiction of far-flung star systems is absolutely awesome.

Now, as to the worst, I would have said--again--that it was a toss-up between two(and these have already been mentioned): 'Clash of the Titans' and 'The Last Airbender'. In fact, 'Airbender' was so bad I had to get rid of it after I had watched it(I didn't see it in the cinema and, boy, am I glad I didn't!)! But after purchasing a new version of 'Clash'(my first version was the German release) I can't even say that that is the worst. It would seem that Warner did some re-jigging of the images and, to my way of thinking, there is much more depth in this later(UK) edition. True nothing sticks out of the screen but that has never bothered me--it's the illusion of depth that is more important. So the worst has got to be 'The Last Airbender', without doubt.

That, for what it's worth, is my humble opinion.

John.

Don't have it. Haven't seen it. Guess I won't be acquiring Airbender.

In order from best to worst:

1. Tron: Legacy
2. Drive Angry
3. Legend of the Guardians
4. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
5. The Polar Express
6. Resident Evil: Afterlife
7. Piranha
8. Clash of the Titans
9. Jean-Michel Costeau's Film Trilogy
10. Sanctum

Although, I wouldn't say any I own are "bad" (Sanctum is an awful movie, but we're judging 3D, which is good, but in a terrible location). Some are just better than others. And I haven't watched Hoodwinked yet, but I guess it ranks up in the top because it's CGI and they always look good!

Agree mostly (can't judge the ones I haven't got).
I like TLA. Haven't got it in 3D, and want it, even though I saw it at the movies and yes, it was very flat. Does anyone know if it's region free? (The review only says B, C untested).

Best would have to be either Tangled or A Christmas Carol. Although I haven't popped in Tron Legacy yet, and I've heard great things about that.

The worst for me is Thor. I much prefer the 2D version on that one.

All joking aside- just watch your 2D blu with 2d->3D conversion. It would be almost exactly the same experience and you wouldn't have to pay any more money.
Now running in 3D with the LG Cinema 3D (nominally showing 3D in 1080i per eye) 47LW6500 (up-or-down-or-side-graded from a 50" Sammy 3D Plasma) and a Benq W1080ST and a 130" screen.

Well the big effects shots will certainly benefit from being on a true Blu-Ray 3D over a real-time conversion even on a low grade conversion title like The Last Airbender

Does it really matter though. Even if The Last Airbender was the best looking Blu-Ray 3D of all time it would make the movie any less of a travesty. Even really great 3D is pointless when wasted on a terrible movie and its hard to imagine a large budget production being more screwed up then M Night Shamalyns disasterous The Last Airbender

I don't really agree. I showed the BD3D at my work less than a month ago, and over and over throughout the movie I found myself thinking- this would be a really cool shot in 3D, before remembering that it supposedly WAS in 3D. The 2D conversion does reasonably well with some stuff, and I'm pretty sure it would have been about the same experience.
But as I remind myself every time I read the reviewers on this board- the 3D experience is almost 100% subjective.
Except, for TLA. Which no one thought was good.

I might say my best right now is Open Season. Not in terms of 'movie', but rather 3D quality. I dont know if its actually good or if my shock level was just incredibly high because I wasnt expecting the quality it delivers. Whatever they did, it just worked for me.

Worst, in terms of the same quality is, likeothers mentioned, Last Airbender.

3D and Story in the same? My favorite right now might be... maybe Tron... or the recent (to me) How to Train Your Dragon. Granted, I havent watched my copy of Thor yet.

I abbreviate because it's just faster that way. And for that reason, there will always be posters who will abbreviate and it just makes sense to be in the know. Which abbreviation may I help you with? Don't be shy, we're here to help.
