Best of 3D Cinema

Top 5 according to 3dguy:

1. House of Wax (1953)

The first full-colour 3D film from a major Hollywood studio, this glorious slice of horror stars the legendary Vincent Price as the disfigured sculptor behind a House of Wax museum who has a special process that ensures his are the most realistic waxworks imaginable.
The film not only pioneered many familiar 3D tricks (such as a paddleball coming out of the screen), but was directed by Andre de Toth – who was blind in one eye and couldn’t actually see 3D effects!

2. Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

Following the success of It Came from Outer Space the previous year, Universal Pictures submerged itself in the world of 3D once again in 1954 with this memorable creature-feature.
The presence of the gorgeous swimsuit-wearing Julia Adams rendered in 3D is one reason the film has endured so well, the other being that it’s also a bloody good movie that’ll keep you gripped from start to finish.

3. Dial M for Murder (1954)

Even Alfred Hitchcock tried his hand at 3D with this thriller about a retired tennis pro (Ray Milland) who wishes to have his wife (Grace Kelly) murdered.
Sadly for Hitch – and audiences, the film arrived just as the ’50s 3D craze was on the wane, meaning that most cinemas only ended up showing the flat 2D version of the movie instead. Thankfully, the 3D version has appeared on revival tours since the early ’80s allowing audiences a chance to catch the film as it was always meant to be seen.

4. Avatar (2009)

Fifteen years in the making, writer/director James Cameron always claimed that his 3D sci-fi epic would be a cinematic game-changer. And you know what? He was right.
While the cutting-edge CG effects were impressive enough, it was Cameron’s use of 3D as an immersive experience rather than a simple gimmick that really made Hollywood sit up and pay attention – well, that and the $2.7billion it raked in at the box office.

5. Toy Story 3 (2010)

Pixar’s latest and arguably greatest computer-animated feature, this new sequel in the Toy Story series finds Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toys dumped in a day-care centre when their grown-up owner Andy heads off to college.

Every bit as moving and exciting as the previous instalments, it also makes excellent use of 3D technology to draw you into the toys’ world and make you feel like you’re sharing their adventures in person.
