I really like Hugo as a movie, but I don't recall the 3D as being mindblowing throughout. I remember the opening shot being glorious, but not as much about the rest of the film. But I own it and will definitely be watching it again (haven't seen it for at least a year), so I'm looking forward to seeing it again. The few that I've seen were pretty good in that regard as well. I watched a whole bunch of animated 3D features when I first got my 3D TV... I think I may have just reached my fill of that genre for a while. Definitely more pronounced than, say, the Disney/Pixar 3D films I've seen. I thought the Despicable Me movies (from Universal) also did a good job with 3D. Agreed. I wish there was more of that on display in X-Men Days Of Future Past. I wonder what it's like in 2D. Often, if I see a movie in 3D but my friends end up seeing it in 2D, they'll come to me and say "How was [scene X] with the 3D effects? I bet they looked really cool" just based on how the 2D seemed to be a restrained version of the 3D, where it's obvious where they'd use a lot of cool 3D work. In this movie, I almost wouldn't be shocked if there weren't a lot of those moments apparent in the 2D version. I wish Singer had been more adventerous on that front, but at least based on the interview I read, it sounds like he's grown tired of the 3D medium. Don't get me wrong -- if you're planning on seeing Days Of Future Past, I still recommend seeing it in 3D. Even when it's not doing a lot to show off, just the look of people and places seems more naturalistic than the 2D conversions usually do, and that's a nice change. I was just a little surprised at how relatively flat the movie looked for long portions of its running time. I also saw it on a smaller screen than I usually would have, since it didn't get an IMAX release, and wound up sitting a little further from the screen than I would have liked. I'm going to try to see it again in one of those so-called "premium large format" IMAX wannabe theaters, and maybe it'll pop more there.
