Default 3D worlds top 100 3d movies

3d worlds issue 10 is almost apon us (in england anyway) and it will feature the top 100 3d movies. what do you think should be included?
i hope ice age is in there but there is 1 movie that i deffinatly dont want to feature, Star wars: attack of the clones. I think youll know why.
To be honest i cant even think of 100 3d movies!

As long as 'The Incredibles' is in there, I'll be happy :attn:
It's my fav Disney/Pixar movie. Along with the classic 'Toy Story'.

I also really liked Finding Nemo, and i too dislike a couple of the their movies, but either way i bet Disney/Pixar will be dominating the Top 100 list. :attn:

Oh, just thought of another movie that should be Hi on the list Monster House :hug:

Yeah pixar will dominate for sure
i never saw monster house as it just looked like a dodgy kids film to me. I also love monsters inc. ( there seems to be a theme here)
i cant really think of many other 3d films
im not a fan of dreamworks, shrek was ok but with a third movie i think there just milking it

i thought monster house was pretty good, though I thought the ending was kind of lame - it seemed to be saying that if you are angry about being fat and mistreated, you deserve to be blown up with dynamite!

for me, it's difficult to choose. i think a lot of films that have great 3d were actually pretty crap - (i'm looking at you lord of the rings - i want my 3 hours back!)

For me, top of the list would have to be ratatouille and monsters inc. I also thought that pan's labyrinth (another lame ending) and children of men were pretty good too.

So is this list going to include all movies that have CG in them?

Or movies that were made totally in CG?

I have to disagree, on some of whats been said above. There are plenty of movies that are CG based or that consisted of allot of CG, and still were really good.

Hell Boy.

Lord of the Rings. (i liked it)

Pans Labyrinth. (i thought this movie was great, especially the scene with the creature with it's eyes in it's hands... creepy!)

Transformers.

Pirates of the Caribbean.

Beowolf.

KingKong.

Just to list a few of my Favs.... Plus a whole bunch more!

I guess it just depends on your taste.... to each his own

BEOWULF!!
I just saw that, that has to get in.

And don't forget Jurassic Park. If that is under the top ten it will be blasphemy.

Yeah there are lots of good movies with good cgi, but the point im trying to make is that good cgi doesnt nesserceraly make the movie

Well, thats obvious.

Good story, Plot, acting, Solid characters, and character building, along with Good Direction, thats what makes a good movie. Anything after that is just Gravy!

But allot of people do base there judgment on the CG and not the story. "If it doesn't look good, it ain't good" that unfortunately seems to be todays philosophy.

So, now you have to ask if this article is going to judge the Movie for what they are (story, Plot, Etc) or what it looks like? Just because it has a great story doesn't mean it going to get First place, especially if the CG is sub par!

Just my thoughts.

Late Summer 2008, is what i heard. I'm not sure of the exact date, but production has already begun.

I'm really looking forward to this one as well, and Spielberg will be producing it.

Should be good :attn:
