Avatar (2009)

3D Rating: 10/10

It seems cliche to place Avatar atop a list of the best 3D I've seen, but it fits. James Cameron ushered in a new era of 3D, allowing it to finally take off. I saw the film multiple times at the cinema in 3D, including IMAX 3D, and loved it. I went back to watch the 3D Blu-ray when it finally came out, and it was enrapturing.

Avatar is the 3D pallbearer for a reason. It looks stunning.

I'll say it again: Wow.

This is the best live-action 3D I've seen since Avatar, and that's saying something. It's a beautiful film to behold, and the 3D makes the visuals all the more stunning.

Prometheus (2012)

3D Rating: 10/10

Even this film's harshest critics admit it's a spectacular visual feast. The 3D is some of the best you will ever see, period. The cinematography is amazing; every single frame of this movie could be a painting on a wall. And 3D adds so much depth to the frame, making the whole experience all the better.

There isn't much that can compare to the experience of watching Prometheus in 3D.

It may feel like a cop-out to include an animated movie, but this one stands out from the pack. It's not DreamWorks or Pixar, but a movie made by another pack of animators, and it looks stunning. This is my go-to 3D demo disc at present; every shot looks extraordinary in 3D. The depth is astonishing, and you can count every feather on every owl. I was in awe from start to end.

Hugo (2011)

3D Rating: 10/10

Roger Ebert said he wouldn't support 3D until a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese dabbled in it. And now here we are, and Scorsese has filmed a movie in 3D. And oh boy, the 3D is something to behold. It was planned and filmed in three dimensions, yielding stunning depth and space between objects. It feels like looking through a window.

Another animated movie, because this one is better than most. Whereas most animated movies have good but rote 3D, the 3D here is exceptional. It feels like snow is falling in your living room, and it looks like a world really is stretched out behind your television screen. This is a great movie, and experiencing it in 3D is wonderful.

This gem is a treat in 3D. You quickly forget the glasses are on your head, and instead find yourself immersed in this world. It amplifies the emotion and the intensity, and it makes the toys look more believable.

Titanic (1997)

3D Rating: 9/10

This is the only converted 3D movie I'll include on this list. There are some other good conversions, but this is the best, because it continually looks like a native 3D feature, though the odd few shots look a bit on the flat side. Still, it's a stunning conversion, and it adds quite a bit to the experience. In fact this is one of the films that persuaded me to purchase a 3D television for my bedroom.

The 3D gimmick gets a really bad wrap these days. Around the time of Avatar, people were warming up to it, but within 12 months studios had turned audiences against the extra dimensional effect. Now box office figures show that people are avoiding movies altogether if they can't see them a 2D showing, as 3D adds extra money and gives people headaches.

Me? I like the gimmick...when it fits. The problem is that too many movies misuse the effect. Here are movies that got it right. If you're still on the fence about 3D, watch any of these movies. You will have your mind blown.
