~The Winners & Losers--3D Movies: Which one is your Favorite?~2012

Updated on October 31, 2014

3D Movies 2012

This list includes forty features and two documentaries. Some were released in the last several years with “Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D” being the first 3D release. Re-releases of older movies, like “Titanic,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Finding Nemo” are here and could very well be at the top of our personal favorite list. Let’s exclude those as well as the number one undisputed pick of all time, “Avatar.” From here it is a level playing field as nearly all of these are very popular films. If a movie that is your favorite is not here, go ahead and vote for it in the comments at the bottom. The Shrek movies are not here and other animated films like “Cars,” “Toys 3D” and “Smurfs.” You may look over the reviews at another of my HUBS. A new list will begin with the new year and the 2012 reviews will remain for reference. While we are at it, if you have a “Rotten Tomato” pick I’d want to see it.

      I bet they do not offer the 3D movies there at all in stores. In fact few places offer 3D here. I guess it is a new thing and it has not caught on that much. However, it has been a blessing watching all these movies that I normally would not have viewed. The result is the new novel that will be coming out soon. I'm hooked on writing children's stories now. RJ

      So far Ive only seen Avatar and all the Matrix movies in 3D but only in a movie house. I've seen Nardia but not in 3D and I'm not even sure where to purchase 3D movies where I live.

      Thanks for the comment. More recently EPIC is a great animated film that would belong on the list. I'm going to check out your recent HUBS and see what you have been up to.

      How to Train your Dragon was released before I began collecting 3D movies and I figured it was something to be dismissed. I was very wrong!!!!! I eventually picked it up after viewing it on the Family Channel. My feeling now is that How to Train Your Dragon should be in every3D collection because it is so very wonderful with its message on prejudice. I'd place it next to Tangled which is my pick for best animated film of all time. Animated films and 3D go together as nearly all the animated films are so well produced and the 3D is always outstanding. Dispicable Me is wonderful with the endearing story and characters, mainly the trio of orphans that captured my heart. More recently Wreck-it Ralph is just a notch above Dispicable Me with a similar storyline and an outsanding ending. I love the little gal in that one too. Write anytime.

      I liked seeing John Carter on your list. I actually enjoyed that movie that so many panned. My favorites, when it comes to 3D continues to be the animated features: movies like How to Train a Dragon, Brave, Despicable Me.

      They have been working on 3D without glasses for a while and that may be it. Thank you for the comment

      Thank you for this. I hear something "new" is around the corner. Universal amusement parks are already using it.

      Nardia was one fo the first 3D videos I purchased. I never get tired of it and love it too. Brave I instantly fell in love with. I realize that the plot sounds a bit simple ( Mom gets changed into a bear) but it works for me. Thank you for taking time to make a pick and leave a comment.
