Top Ten Movies We’d Like To See In 3D

fifth element 3d

1. The Matrix – It was hard to choose between the Matrix and the original Star Wars films because it was a battle between head and heart. The kid in me would love to have that blown-away feeling of Star Wars be re-created by the magic of 3D – but the cynical adult in me knows that George Lucas will probably be douching up the classic movies even more in order to 3D-ify them – and that makes me sad. So I give spot number one to the movie that blew my adult mind – The Matrix.

2. Star Wars: The Original Trilogy
– See above.

3. The Fifth Element – The colors and imagery in this film were stunning, and the film holds up to the test of time. Over a decade later and the movie still looks great. A 3D treatment would make this film barf rainbows all over an excited audience.

4. Aliens – This one would be a real exercise in 3D trickery, because its so darkly lit. That said, Giger’s aliens would be incredible in the 3D format, and you know Jim Cameron must be dying to go back to all his films and see what he can improve with the immersive tech.

5. Pixar Classics – I considered The Incredibles first, but then as I started to remember how amazing Finding Nemo was, and how beautiful it would look in 3D – I decided to make Pixar its own category. With an upgrade cost of 5M a film, Pixar should be able to handle their catalogue getting the upgrade – everyone on Earth would go see the films again in the theater.

6. The Shining – All those incredible steadicam shots would look insane in 3D. Also, it would be a crime to leave “Here’s Johnny” out of this list. That axe scene is screaming for 3D-ification.

7. The Lord Of The Rings – I love these films, so a chance to see them again, in a different format, would be awesome. I’d like to see the 3D glasses technology improve a little before committing to the entire trilogy in 3D – I’m not sure my poor eyes could handle 10 hours at this point.

8. Star Trek
– The new one from JJ. This spectacular sci-fi action-fest was one of my favorite movies last year, and it’s brightness and color would be perfectly showcased by the 3D treatment.

9. Contact – If for anything, I nominate Contact for the last 25 minutes of the film. Ellie’s journey through the wormhole and her meeting with the alien on the blacklit beach are fantastic, and would look even more gorgeous in three dimensions.

10. 2001 – A Space Odyssey – Many will say that this film is too slow to be given a 3D treatment, but I say that Kubrick made the ultimate sci-fi film, and that it would look stunning in 3D. I bet even Kubrick would like the idea. A bold statement, but one I believe to be true.

  1. The first Alien would be better than the sequel. And I’d rather see Star Trek the original in 3d than the latest one.
