With almost half of its running time dedicated to exciting action and flawless special effects, it is sometimes easy to forget that this grand scale smash hit is a love story at heart. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet star as two young travelers who, despite the chasm of social status between them, fall deeply in love during the fateful maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic. The innocence of the love story between the two stars anchors the grand spectacle of the rest of the film, delivering audiences a remarkable film with one of the weepiest endings in memory.
This is the film that really kick started the current 3D boom and remains the best example of how to effectively use the medium. The film was James Cameron's first in twelve years and was conceived from the start as a complete 3D experience. Cameron and his team pushed the limits of modern technology and were rewarded with the biggest hit of all time. Whatever you may think about the film itself Cameron, like Peter Jackson, is a fan of 3D and knows what he's doing. Every aspect of the film is enhanced by the added dimensionality and the 3D is a genuine part of the narrative, making it an essential collection.

If there's one person you just knew would do 3D properly it's Martin Scorsese. He's probably seen every 3D film ever made, so when he decided to shoot the film version of the children's book 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' you knew it would be special. And it was, with wonderfully composed 3D cinematography that was designed to enhance the sets and move the narrative forward. It seems fitting that a film about the early days of cinema should use modern technology to such great effect. A dazzling and, at times, genuinely moving 3D experience.
Life of Pi
Ang Lee's film of the award-winning novel is easily one of the most beautiful 3D films you will ever see and the Taiwanese master became the first person to pick up an Oscar for directing a 3D movie. He is clearly having fun with the entire medium, using the extra dimension in a host of imaginative ways that truly enhance the viewing experience. Every aspect of the production has been conceived with 3D in mind but it's the flying fish sequence that really stands out, as Lee deliberately changes the aspect ratio to increase the 3D effect even further.
When the Tesseract, a cube of pure energy with the power to destroy the Earth, is stolen by the nefarious God of Mischief, Loki, S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury embarks on a daring recruitment effort spanning the globe to assemble a team of the world's most powerful superheroes to get it back.

Despicable Me was a surprise when it came out and the Blu-ray sales were no doubt increased as 3D TV owners rushed out to buy it in the early days of the latest 3D boom. They were probably influenced by the fact that the film was being used for every 3D demo in every store and at every AV show. The crashing spaceship that stops just in time with its nose cone sticking out of the screen is always a favourite. The film, and its sequel are great fun and everyone loves seeing how far does Gru’s nose sticks out from his face?
The Great Gatsby
Baz Luhrmann's take on the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald was always going to be a full frontal audio video assault but given Baz was also dabbling in the third dimension, it promised to take 3D to another level. And so it did. Luhrmann fills each frame with so much detail and depth that it's hard to take it all in with one sitting. Whilst it might not be the definitive version of the story of Jay Gatsby, it's certainly a feast for the eyes and ears as you experience a version of the Roaring Twenties that's been filtered through Luhrmann's unique vision.
This surprisingly charming modern fairy tale has some of the most beautiful artwork seen in a Disney feature since the heyday of the studio. Disney's innovative multiplaned cameras gave quasi-stereoscopic effects to classic pictures such as Bambi back in the day, and that work informs the "real" 3D here. The floating lantern sequence near the film's climax is particularly breathtaking.
