3D Movies With the Most/ Best "Pop Out" Effects

I have a confession. I want all my 3D movies to have Pop Out scenes. This is where things come rushing at you or the more subtle effect where they float in front of you. I understand that directors (not named Ben Stassen) nowadays think this is mostly a gimmick and therefore don't include them in their releases anymore which is a real shame.

I'm a videophile when it comes to 2D movies. As soon as I put those glasses which let's be honest is the real gimmick here- everything goes out the window. I want to be razzled and dazzled but unfortunately the majority of 3D movies don't do it for me. 3D nowadays is all about depth but to me that doesn't create true immersion without pop outs and I know I'm not the only one who feels so out there.

I understand everyone has different tastes and rightly so. Therefore I'm creating this thread for all you aficionados like me looking for what those so called experts smugly deride as "gimmicky pop out scenes" that WE want as part of the 3D movie experience.

So go ahead and list all your favorite 3D movies that you think qualify. It has to have at least one or two good pop out scenes in it. If there's enough interest I'll add a sticky with a list that I'll try to keep updated moving forward

Here are my favorite pop out 3D BDs:

- Sammy's Adventures 1 (the one that started it all for me. Reference 3D BD for exquisitely done and perfectly executed pop outs )
- Sammy's Adventures 2
- Thunder And The House Of Magic (recently released)
- Madagascar 3
- Drive Angry
- My Bloody Valentine
- Imax Under The Sea
- Final Destination 4

Subscribed. Just got a 3D TV, so I'm also interested. I've heard Titanic, Avatar and Star Trek: Into Darkness are reference 3D films.

Nice. I'll have to add that to my collection. It's really hard to find a non animated 3D movie nowadays with great pop out scenes just for the adults

Hi Don. Thanks for sharing this. It's very rare to stumble upon a real action non animated movie with any pop out scenes in it. Are they any good?

Edit: Found a review on blu-ray.com and this is what they had to say:

"A few objects appear to spring out of the screen during battle, but viewers aren't frequently left dodging weapons or feeling poked and prodded by materials which appear to extend well beyond the screen."

So I'm guessing it's a more subtle pop out effect where things float in front of you. I'll have to see this one first before I decide to add it to my collection

Journey To The Center of The Earth has a lot of effects which is a good thing because it makes up for the rest of the movie.

From the brief look I had at Transformers: Age of Extinction in 3D, it had some great pop out effects and overall stunning video quality.

I haven't seen Gravity in a while and also only watched it once but if I remember correctly, that had some respectable pop in certain scenes.

Polar express -- the cow catcher at the front of the train stops just short of your chair.
The short animated feature included with M v. A has lots of negative parallax.
A Christmas Carol (Jim Carey) has some good scenes with pop out.
As already mentioned Thunder and the House of Magic probably is right up there with the most scenes with pop out.

So just one pop out scene during the opening scene and nothing else?

Not for the faint of heart but "Andy Warhol's Frankenstein" (aka "Flesh for Frankenstein") had some unique, to put it mildly, 3D effects. Not sure if the 3D version is generally available. For a long time prior to the Criterion release the uncut version, which is the only one worth watching, was quite rare to find.

Happy hunting.

Well, that's the best effect of the entire flick. ...Watch it @ your own risk.

Of course there are few more scenes, but Sammy's Adventure it ain't.

And you mainly mentioned the good ones already, but here are few more from good to bad to very bad 3D flicks (no order) :::

♦ Tangled
♦ Despicable Me
♦ Resident Evil: Afterlife
♦ Resident Evil: Retribution
♦ Step Up
♦ Piranha 3D
♦ Piranha 3DD
♦ Shrek -> Quadrilogy
♦ Monsters University
♦ Bolt
♦ G-Force
♦ Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

♦ Coraline

It's not and never has been, unfortunately. The "Space-Vision" format it used for 3D was also used on THE BUBBLE. One can hope that those behind restoring that 3D movie may conceivably try for FRANKENSTEIN as a follow-up.
