James Cameron developed special cameras exclusively to film the ground-breaking Avatar, which is still the highest grossing film of all time.
Toy Story 3
To appreciate the scale of Woody and the gang navigating their way around the day care centre, the 3D adds incredible perspective. The other bonus of wearing 3D glasses while watching this film, is that it helps mask the tears during the emotional ending.
Dial M For Murder
It’s not just modern blockbusters that utilise stunning 3D techniques. Also check out Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 film, which adds a new layer to this thriller by the master of suspense
The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D
3D conversions are tricky, since the original film was never intended to be shown in this format. But this classic Christmas movie works terrifically, thanks to its unique stop motion style.
How To Train Your Dragon
The only way to watch this film is in 3D. The soaring flight sequences are wonderfully animated regardless, but become a rollercoaster ride when you pop on your 3D glasses.
Ghosts of the Abyss
James Cameron features twice on this list, but this time he utilises 3D technology to give us a haunting look at the actual wreckage of the Titanic.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
Giant lizards, underwater cities, devastating volcanos...the 3D in this film is a spectacle to behold and marks the first pairing between San Andreas’ Brad Peyton and Dwayne Johnson.
If you’re going to experience an unprecedented magnitude 9 earthquake in film, the only way to watch it is in 3D. Brace yourself for giant tidal waves, mass destruction and Dwayne Johnson risking his life to save his family.
