As of right now, I have 57 (including on-order and pre-orders) Blu-ray 3D movies, based on both Anaglyph 3D and True 3D (Import and North-American) films, probably 15+ more 3D blu-ray movies than 2D blu-rays.

There are several films I've purposely skipped and am currently not interested in, like Fright Night (even though it was shot in true 3D), Thor, Green Lantern, Clash of the Titans, and Immortals.

Here is a list of what I have so far:

1: Alice in Wonderland

14: Final Destination 3D
15: Final Destination 5 3d

16: Friday the 13th Part 3 3D (Anaglyph)

17: Gnomeo and Juliet

18: Green Hornet

19: Gulliver's Travels

20: Harold and Kumar Christmas

21: Hidden, Chinese

22: Hole 3D, Dutch

41: Sector 7, Chinese

42: Shark Night 3D, German (on Pre-order)

Most 3D movies cost between $28-$35, with an average of $30. That's close to $1,700 worth of movies!

The last 3D movies I've watched are: Hugo, Sector 7, and The Hole. Hugo is probably the most critically acclaimed 3D movie of all time. It won several awards. As for its 3D usage, it really was incorporated well into the film, immersing everyone in the experience, with its clockwork gears and such, at least in the first half of the movie. The first half is fun and adventurous. The second half seems rather long, slowed down, and boring. Hugo is a film that is actually a salute to French silent films. Many people share my view on this, but this is a split view, and lots of other people believe that Hugo would be the movie to push someone to actually go out and buy a 3DTV.

Sector 7 is a Korean film, which tells the story of an almost unstoppable monster that attacks an oil rig. For an Asian video, the quality IMO is top notch. I've seen several Chinese and Japanese films, and they don't even compare. It seems like Asians just really haven't mastered lighting and filming techniques. With all of the praise for video quality, it does have a couple dirt bike scenes that really do look fake. There is a lot of CGI usage in the film. I really thought it was a good movie, not great but good.

As for The Hole, from Joe Dante, from Gremlins, Piranha, and Howling fame, it has been released in Asia and Europe but not in North-America. Joe Dante's reasoning apparently has something to do with it not being able to compete with higher-budget 3D blockbusters in Hollywood, as it was a low-budget ($12,000,000, the same budget Gran Torino had, which had no 3D and little to no special effects) film.

The trailer for the hole makes it seem like it's a PG-13/teen version of The Gate, from 1986. It's kind of similar but also a bit different. It's about these children that find a hole in the basement of their new house. Everyone that looks into the hole lets the 'darkness' know their worst fears. Kind of reminiscent of the Ghostbusters, where he thought of the stay puff marshmallow man. The smallest boy has a fear of clowns, the neighbor girl had a fear of not being able to save her childhood friend earlier in life from a fall, in which her friend and apparently a cop fell to their death at a theme park. The oldest kid had a fear of his father that was in Prison, but his recollection of his father was as a huge monster.

It didn't really have many 'pop-out' effects but had good depth. I thought the effects were actually good, despite being considered a low-budget movie.


What doesn't make sense to me is how movies are selected for North-American releases. Sector 7 tried hard and I believe eventually got a theatrical release in the US, but they still didn't get a blu-ray release. The Child's Eye, The Hole, Shark Night 3D, or Battle for Terra have not been released in the USA. Shock Labyrinth has gotten a release date finally.

Battle for Terra should have gotten an immediate 3D release when it was released in Europe. It's a good, fun animated feature. People have compared it to a lower-budget version of Avatar, but it should have gotten a US release.

Avatar is another example, with slightly different circumstances. It was released as an exclusive title, only available with a 3DTV or 3D kit, but those exclusive contracts ran out last month, and there's no sign of it being released any time soon in the retail marketplace.


3D movies I'm most looking forward to:

Resident Evil V
Underworld Awakening

125 HD-DVDS, 184 BLU-RAYS, 230 3-D BLU-RAYS, 281 DVDs, 599 VHS, 28 VCDs, 5 PSP Movies, 176 Laserdiscs, 10 Field-Sequential 3D DVDs

Actually, I just counted and was wrong. I have 66 2D blu-ray movies. A few are trilogies (girl with the dragon tattoo, underworld) and collections (searches/wild bunch/how the west was won, close encounters of the third kind.)

Maybe in three or four more months, there will be more 3D than 2D!
