Source: 5 Must-See Family Movies in 3D
3D movies are more popular than ever, especially for action-packed films, which make you feel much closer to the chases and conflict. Before the end of the year, be on the look out for these five films, all in 3D, that will send you and your kids on a dizzy adventure.
- Better Than Free Willy: Bring on the waterworks, because Dolphin Tale (in theaters Sept. 23) makes Free Willy seem tame. Dolphin Tale is based on the true story of a rescued dolphin who is missing her tail, and a prosthetics doctor and young boy who try to remobilize her. The 3D effect might make you feel like you are swimming underwater with a dolphin.
- It's the Boots: Pixar's Puss in Boots (in theaters Nov. 4) is an offshoot of Shrek, and tells the true legend of Puss in Boots, Kitty Softpaws, and Humpty Dumpty. If it's anything like Shrek, the 3D effects will make the horse chases, flying, and other frantic attempts of escape even more adrenaline inducing.
- Thrilling Tintin: Directed by Steven Spielberg, The Adventures of Tintin: The Sacred of the Unicorn (in theaters Dec. 23) is an animated film about Tintin and his friends, who embark on a dangerous treasure hunt to a sunken ship. All modes of transportation: airplanes, cars, trains, and ships will make for a motion-simulated 3D experience.
- Cool vs. Hot: For your older children, you can go see Twilight: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 (in theaters Nov. 18). The adored couple Edward and Bella finally tie the knot and procreate. Their unborn child starts a full-blown war between the wolves and vampires. If this film mimics previous Twilight titles, the swooping cinematography of landscapes and intense vampire/wolf battles will be quite thrilling in 3D.
- The Muppets Are Back: The Muppets (in theaters Nov. 23) stars Jason Segel and Amy Adams, whose characters help reunite all the Muppets to raise the $10 million needed to save the legendary theater where the Muppets performed for many years. Disney MGM Studios has a 3D Muppet Vision show, which is full of in-your-face 3D gags, and this new 3D Muppet movie could be similar.
