As my subject, I would like to know what's the best 3D blu-ray movies to buy out of the current 30 to 40 titles in terms of 3D effect, video/audio quality and the movie itself. Live action or animated.

Avatar is the obvious choice and clear winner I would think. I've only seen Avatar, Piranha and Gulliver's Travel on 3D blu-ray so far. Piranha's 3D was done in post-production but it's a decent job. Similiarly for Gulliver but its 3D effect is almost non-existent. I'm thinking of getting Coraline 3D, Resident Evil After Life 3D, Despicable Me 3D, Tron 3D, Grand Canyon IMAX and maybe Saw Final Chapter 3D. Thoughts?

I've also watched live 3D broadcast for the first time last weekend i.e. the Wimbledon finals. Didn't quite have the wow effect like Avatar. Maybe its the camera distance from the action?

Tron 3D is quite good - but the picture keeps changing format - there is a lot of 2D in it as well - though this doesn't affect the viewing of the film.

Tangled. Looks so good. Also a great story. I have only seen Avatar on Sky 3D which maybe would not look as good as the Blu-Ray would. I agree about the tennis it seemed that the camera angle was not as good as the standard camera angles were. The football look's good to me.

The best film I've seen for 3d effect is Monsters and Aliens. An animated film which I found very enjoyable.

My daughter really enjoyed Despicable Me in 3D

I have collected virtually everything available on Blu Ray 3D and my personal favourite is Legends of the Guardians, The Owls of Ga'Hoole.
There is a breathtaking section where the owls are flying in the rain and it is simply stunning with the water droplets and wind in the feathers. Superb. Virtually any of the animations work well - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Coraline are also worth a look.
For live action I would have to say that some of the dance sequences in Step Up 3D are spectacular.
Those to avoid? Piranha 3D (total trash) & Alice in Wonderland (overblown and too dark both in mood and visuals although I am a big Tim Burton fan).

I hve seen a fair few 3D Blu Rays, I would agree with the above post, Legend Of The Guardians was excellent. Another post stated Tron Legacy kept changing between 2D and 3D, well actually the first 30 or so minutes was meant to be in 2D, but as soon as the film goes into The Grid it is 3D from there on...until the final 10 minutes, which I thought worked so well, it was the whole point! Plus the 3D was excellent.
Despicable Me was excellent too, A Christmas Carol also well worth picking up.
Ones that were just OK, Monster House, Piranha (worth getting now because it is dirt cheap - you can pick it up for around a fiver), Clash Of The Titans, Saw 3D (Disappointing), The Green Hornet (not really worth paying extra for the 3D version IMO)
The last one I watched was Drive Angry, the 3D was pretty good, quite a few gimmicky scenes which HAVE to be seen in 3D, it added a kind of 'fun factor' to the film, but the movie wasnt exactly great - rent before you buy!

Just saw Ice Age 3 this morning. There's some good 3D effect in there.

A Turtle´s Tale!!! - Forget about Avatar or Resident Evil...The 3D is fantastic!

I owned about 6-7 3D blu ray films. Avatar is definitely up there. Descipable Me and Tangled is very good too.
I heard Drive Angry is very good 3D and I'm thinking of buying it....

Clash of the Titans - 3D FAIL

1st Place: Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Amazing 3D! Though with 3D films until they have the technology where you can see the 3D without glasses, they'll always be slightly darker as you're putting something over your eyes. Noticed this especially with this film as I saw it in 3D then a few days later in 2D.

2nd: Resident Evil: Afterlife. Was very impressive 3D!

3rd. Last but not least... How to train your Dragon. Loved the 3D. Really fun twist on animation.

I didn't get to see Avatar in 3D :-(

As previously mentioned, Avatar is very good in 3D (probably due to it being filmed with 3D cameras) but Ice Age 3 is also worthing looking at, as is My Bloody Valentine... some of the best 3D scenes i've seen especially in the daylight shots and of course the obvious pick axe out-the-screen shots are wonderful.

In reply to an earlier post on 10 Aug 2011 13:38:18 BDT
But this format changing is described on the disc - some parts were shot in IMAX some not. That's why.
2D part is the real world, which is announced right before the movie.

Just watched Tron Legacy 3D and Tangled 3D over the weekend. Tron has some amazing effect although sometimes you can't feel its third dimension as it's always black. Tangled is certainly one of the best drawn animation out there and the 3D is well worth the money too.

Tangled and Coraline are my favourites so far.
Ice Age 3 and Despicable Me are also very good too.

Saw some overwhelming reviews on the forthcoming Cars 2 3D (on its 3D and video quality, not the story). Looks like there's a winner for this year. Also looking forward to the Transformers 3 3D.

I'm loving 3D blu-ray and saw MegaMind 3D a couple of days ago. Amazingly detailed animation and a wonderful movie. Looking forward to Three Musketeers and Fright Night soon.

In response to T.W. Smith...
I have got Fright Night 3D, it is so dark much of the 3D effect is lost, not only that but as it's so dark a lot of what's going on can't even be made out. There are a couple of good effects but they are few and far between.
I thought Fright Night was a very good way to spend a couple of hours - but my advice would be to stick with the 2D Blu ray.

Haven't seen Resi, but my Dad actually told me the 3D is really good in it.
Despicable me is a great looking 3d film. I've also seen the Green hornet and the Green Lantern, they have small sections where the 3D seems worth it, but half the time there is not much difference from a normal picture.

my fav's are FRIGHT NIGHT 3D , CAPTAIN AMERICA 3D , DRIVE ANGRY 3D, SHARK NIGHT 3D , AVATAR 3D courtesy of Panasonic, all are excellent & the 3D is spot on.... The worst has got to be HYBRID 3D "terrible"
