Curious what the most popular 3D Blu-Rays are right now? Click here for our continuously updated list of the best selling 3D movies on Blu-Ray.

1. Tangled

Tangled is fantastic, both myself and my kids really enjoyed watching this movie (several times). The story and the 3D are top notch. The colors are crisp and vibrant with practically zero ghosting in the entire picture. A few scenes, such as the floating lantern scene, are truly mesmerizing. This is definitely the most played 3D disc in my house.

2. IMAX - Under The Sea

This is the movie you want to show your friends and family to show off your new 3DTV. The potato cod scene at the 21min mark is the best pop-out 3D effect I've ever experienced in a 3D movie. It's absolutely amazing. The large fish slowly swims more than 1/2 way out of the TV and appears to be swimming right in front of your face. They use this disc to demo LG 3DTVs at Best Buy.

3. Despicable Me

A great story that is as much fun for the adults as it is for the kids. Some great 3D scenes in this one.

4. Cars 2

Some of the jokes in this movie seemed to be aimed more at the adults than the kids, but the picture quality and 3D is some of the best I've seen.

5. Drive Angry

It's still tough to find a good 3D flick that's not targeted at children. This movie won't be for everyone, but if you're willing to turn off your brain and enjoy this movie for what it is, then you won't be disappointed. The depth is very good and there are a few really good pop-out effects that make this a worthy purchase.
