The best 3D Blu-ray movies

We've picked out the ten best 3D Blu-ray movies to test your 3D TV

If you're buying a 3D TV, you may as well have some good 3D movies to show on it. We've watched quite a few 3D movies since the format's debut last year, and these ten are our top picks. They all boast great Full HD image quality and good 3D effects — nothing too unrealistic and no ghosting, just some high quality stereoscopic tri-dimensional fun. We make no promises as to the quality of the movies' plot lines, though.

Megamind

Megamind 3D

The 3D release of the Megamind Blu-ray has to be one of the highest quality examples of 3D that we've seen. Like Despicable Me, the movie has some scenes that make great use of the 3D effect. And because it's an animation there are no teething problems with the 3D production — it's all spot-on and very clean.

Coraline

Coraline 3D

We first watched Coraline on the huge 65in Panasonic TH-P65VT20A, which is a first-generation 3D TV. It still looked excellent (Panasonic's plasmas were the best first-gen 3D TVs) and the quality of animation of Neil Gaiman's story is top-notch. This is an example of a 3D animation that's not so bright and vivid, so it's a good choice to test 3D without being distracted by all the colours.

Bolt

Bolt 3D

Bolt is a relatively recent 3D Blu-ray release, and like Megamind it's a colourful, clean, well-animated movie that has some surprisingly effective jump-out-of-the-screen 3D effects in it. There are also a few quick-moving action scenes, so it's a good way to showcase the smoothness of a 3D plasma or one of LG's Cinema 3D TVs.

Avatar

Avatar 3D

Whether you like the movie or not, Avatar is one of the 3D Blu-rays to get. It's got some great cinematography, and there are 3D scenes that effortlessly fuse live-action with extremely high-quality CGI. The movie's outdoor scenes may not have the same over-the-top, duck-your-head 3D as Megamind and Despicable Me, but they're stunning to look at.

Saw 3D

Saw 3D

Saw 3D is one of only a few live-action films to have been shot in digital 3D. It's not the best Saw film (that dubious honour goes to the original), but it has some elaborate (if gory) scenes that make good use of 3D. It's also dark and gritty, which is not something you usually see with 3D movies.

All look good, however, the best I have seen in 3D is Space Station, on Blue Ray.

Good to know, I just posted a 3D move night event on my facebook since my LG cinema 3D TV doesn't need special 3D glasses :D
I was wondering which movies I should play. Megamind or Saw looks pretty good lol.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
