    Seeing this being discussed in the CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON thread and not wanting to contribute to a derailment of same thread, I figured I'd open this one up.
    As much as I love 3D, I can only cop to owning a few 3D Blu Rays:
    Adventures of Tintin
    Beauty and the Beast
    Captain America: The First Avenger
    Dolphin Tail
    Hugo
    Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole
    Sector 7
    Sharks 3D
    Sports Illustrated 2011 Swimsuit 3D Eperience (Irina Shyak in 3D is a beautiful thing)
    Thor
    Yogi Bear
    I have dutifully pre-ordered DIAL M FOR MURDER and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, asked for THE AVENGERS for my birthday, and will pick up UP and GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS when they come out, as well as any other 50s 3D movies like DRAGONFLY SQUADRON (hiint, hint, Mr. Furmanek).

    My cash is ready and screaming "SPEND ME! SPEND ME!". Never a good thing. :)
    At any rate, best of luck.

    Tron Legacy
    Hugo
    The Lion King
    Dial M for Murder - pre-ordered
    Creature from the Black Lagoon - pre-ordered
    Titanic

    I'll eventually get some of the Pixar. Maybe Titanic. Maybe something else I'm forgetting at the moment. But much of what's out there just isn't of interest to me, period.

    Note to studios: I will pre-order, on the day of announcement (like I did today), ANY AND ALL VINTAGE 3D MOVIES. You release 'em, I'll buy 'em. That's what I want, and that's my commitment.

    I have too many 3D titles to list--not as many as Ron must have, but close as my purchase patterns run parallel with his positive reviews.
    I do have Avatar, a Chinese import that I bought from eBay. It is a favorite along with Hugo and Peter Gabriel New Blood Live in London.

    It might be easier for me to list the 3D movies released so far that I DON'T have.

    I will say that my favorites in terms of 3D effectiveness are Avatar, Megamind, How to Train Your Dragon, Coraline, Tangled, Hugo, G-Force, Bolt, Beauty and the Beast, and Captain America: The First Avenger. Only the latter two were conversions.

    Pretty much ALL of them. Even some sub par German 3D conversions, but those shouldn't count. Anyway, it's well over 100 by now. Well, I had to buy that many to justify the purchase of the Panasonic PT-AE7000U and 5 pairs of glasses.... Didn't I? :rolleyes:
    I'm all in for the 1950's classics as soon as they (hopefully) start arriving. "Dial M for Murder" just got pre-ordered.

    Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs
    TinTin
    Kung Fu Panda 2
    Rio 3D
    Hugo
    G-Force 3D
    Drive Angry
    Most I received for free (came with the my Sony 3D TV) or $5 each as one of the bonuses of working retail. Others I just bought the Blu-ray 3D disc on eBay for $15. The last eight on the list were $14.99 at Best Buy with the $5 free upgrade. Otherwise I wouldn't have them. They look OK on my 55 inch Sony 3D TV in my family room as I'm sitting about 13 feet from it - should be 6 or 7 feet for the best 3D effect . But once I get a 3D projector with a 120 inch image and sitting about 14 feet in my home theatre room the 3D image should look a lot better.
    I will be getting Dial M for Murder and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Other titles too when I find them for $15 or less.

    I am just getting started. I have several titles on my wish list--along with many others I vow to place under the tree in December, which will exponentially lift my 3D BD total!!!!! :):D :P

    I added YOGI BEAR to my collection recently. Watching it, I was surprised at a)how great the 3D looked and b)just how funny the movie really was. Oh, it's a stupid movie, to be sure. But funny stupid. I loved it. Best Buy has that Owl movie for $20 this week and I'm thinking of getting that.

    I agree about the 3D. It's very effective. The movie, like Disney's G-Force which also boasted superb 3D usage, was a chore to sit through, but the 3D made it worth it for me.

    I expected major suckage from YOGI BEAR since a)I thought I heard it was a conversion and b)everyone said it sucked. So I was surprised (and delighted) to see that it was, in fact, true 3D and that the movie did exactly what it set out to do. Is it as great a comedy as say, AIRPLANE!? Hell, no. But it's actually one of the better live action versions of a cartoon done since it replicates the cartoon pretty well. Certainly, it's better than THE FLINTSTONES two movies. Ackroyd and Timberlake do good in terms of the voices, Anna Farris is easy on the eyes--especially in 3D--and the jokes, though obvious actually manage to work. The bit with the nachos is not only a great 3D effect, it's actually a fairly funny sight gag. Perhaps best of all, the movie doesn't overstay it's welcome running at a brief 80 minutes. I can see myself popping this into the blu ray player from time to time. Would I watch it in 2D? No, but then again, I try to make it a rule to not watch 3D movies in 2D unless I have no other choice.

    Still waiting for my 3D kit to arrive in the mail for my TV, but I picked up some titles so I'm ready when it comes:
    Tintin
    Hugo
    Green Hornet (it was cheap, $10)
    Cave of Forgotten Dreams
    and I had the Avatar Panasonic disc.
    Definitely getting Dial M and Titanic, and otherwise I'd just add Tron Legacy and Captain America to what I have. Not really a fan of animated films in general, and not crazy about conversions, though I might pick up Piranha if I see it cheap since it was fun in the free preview screening I saw way back when.

    Reviewing that list of titles, I'm reminded that almost all 3-D feature films are of a similar theme in the same genre.
    I have the Imax documentaries.
    I also have Hugo, Polar Express, and The Adventures of Tin Tin but I'm not going further into CGI animation because frankly I've had enough of it.
    Hugo I bought despite my disapproval of and dislike for Ben Kingsley.
    I'm all grown up now, and I can take only so many cartoons pitched at the same intellectual level.
    I need to see human faces emoting instead of cute cartoon critters given human voices. Enough is enough.
    I'll be getting Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS 3-D which is a film I like very much, and I'm eager to receive the two classics DIAL M FOR MURDER 3-D and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON 3-D.
    But I would like to see straight-forward live action 3-D films -- drama, comedy, action, adventure, horror, sci-fi -- that is not dependent on digital capture or digitally generated landscapes, sets and effects. I want to see genuine stereoscopic cinematography of real-life people and places. When that kind of film starts coming out I'll buy more 3-D blu-rays.
