The best 3D Blu-ray movies

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

Monsters Vs. Aliens

Monsters Vs. Aliens 3D

Monsters Vs. Aliens was actually the first 3D Blu-ray we watched, showing off a Samsung Series 7 3D LED TV. It's a good 3D Blu-ray for testing whether your 3D TV is ghosting — the battle on the bridge is as good as any other scene we've tested 3D TVs with. Look for any blurriness or double-images on the bridge's suspension cables — if it's there, your TV is displaying ghosting.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 3D

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is one of our preferred 3D Blu-rays to test TVs with, because it has a good mix of high quality 3D animation, slow-moving scenes and fast action. Plus it rains food, which is always fun.

Jean-Michel Cousteau's Film Trilogy

Dolphins And Whales 3D

This is a set of three 3D Blu-ray movies, all of which have excellent stereoscopic live-action 3D, filmed entirely underwater. We imagine this would have been quite a gargantuan task, but the end results are excellent — there's a particular scene in Dolphins and Whales 3D that will have you thinking a humpback whale is sitting in your living room. It's also great to see documentaries being given the 3D treatment for a bit of diversity.

Despicable Me

Despicable Me 3D

Despicable Me is one of the best 3D Blu-rays we've seen. It's got excellent lighting that really sets it apart from other, older CGI movies — it's extremely realistic (despite the cartoony style) and as such the 3D looks very true-to-life and impressive. This sits very near the top of our best 3D Blu-ray movie pile.

Under The Sea

Under The Sea 3D

Under the Sea is an IMAX film shot around the world, including some scenes from the oceans around Australia. It's one of the best live-action uses of 3D we've seen so far, and it's got some excellent three-dimensional scenes. It shows a huge range of ocean wildlife and it's well shot and produced — we can even overlook its Jim Carrey narration.

Have we missed anything? If you can think of a Blu-ray movie that does 3D better than any of these, let us know in the comments and we'll check it out.

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.
