8 Best Mesmerizing 3D Movies on Netflix Right Now
There were no movies, films, or the large screens that we used to see back in the day. There were some real plays and dramas at the theatres back then. While some individuals still enjoy the heart behind these plays, they are no longer suitable for everyone. Looking at something more real and happening immediately in front of your eyes, on the other hand, might have its own allure. We can’t truly replace movies with stage plays now days since they have so much CGI and so much more. This is where 3D films come into play. Even with the most absurd scenarios and visual effects that these modern movies have, the 3D impact that they have gives us a small touch of realism, which is probably why we love 3D movies so much.
But it’s not just the 3D effect that elevates these films to new heights. It’s the way practically every scene in these films is shot to give the impression that the characters are emerging out their screens. Remember that scene in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ where Captain America runs straight towards you? It nearly feels like he’s coming straight at you, even without the 3D. 3D movies are still a lot of fun to watch, regardless of the true three-dimensional impact. You may have previously seen these in 3D, but you can relive every moment from the comfort of your own home. Here’s a list of Netflix titles that are currently available to stream in 3D.
The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl (2005)
‘The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl,’ despite earning mixed reviews upon its initial debut, has grown to be remembered fondly by the generation who grew up with it. The fantasy adventure superhero picture, directed by Robert Rodriguez, follows the story of Max, a reclusive youngster who discovers that Planet Drool, the land of his dreams, actually exists. One day, two heroes Max created, Sharkboy (Taylor Lautner) and Lavagirl (Taylor Dooley), arrive at his school riding on twin tornados and invite him to join them on a mission to Planet Drool, which requires his assistance.
Rodriguez used anaglyph 3-D technology for this film, which he had previously used for a previous project, ‘Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over’ (2003). The critics were divided on the animation and 3-D. While some appreciated it, others claimed it was undercooked.
The Croods (2013)
‘The Croods,’ directed by Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, is an animated picture about a family of cavepeople who must learn to adapt to their ever-changing environment. Grug Crood (Nicolas Cage) has always been extra vigilant to protect his family. However, when their world begins to crumble around them, the Croods have no choice but to flee. Grug has an identity dilemma when his daughter Eep (Emma Stone) exposes the family to the new man in her life, Guy (Ryan Reynolds), an imaginative and more evolved adolescent. He later understands that the only way to protect his family’s survival is to work together with Guy.
Cloud Atlas (2012)
The journey of six individuals, each from a different generation, is depicted in ‘Cloud Atlas.’ All of these people investigate how even the tiniest decisions on their emotional journeys can have a significant impact on the future. It also demonstrates how, in a continually changing world, the past, present, and future collide to make sense of one another, demonstrating that everything is interconnected. The cast of ‘Cloud Atlas’ includes Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and other well-known performers. This film is not just a voyage for the characters, but also for the audience, as it transports you to many locations. I’m sure seeing it in 3D would have been a completely different experience, but if you missed it, you can still see it on Netflix.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013)
The sequel to the ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ series is almost as charming and delightful as the first. Flint (Bill Hader) meets Chester V (Will Forte), the guy who has inspired him as an inventor since he was a boy, and he offers Flint a job at his company. Later, Chester informs Flint that the “Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator” (FLDSMDFR), the machine that caused the food storm in the first film, is still operational, and instructs him to travel alone to the island where the machine is currently located and deactivate it with a USB device. However, Flint, his fiancée Sam Sparks (Anna Faris), his father, and some of their friends decide to visit the island. When Chester discovers that Flint has disobeyed his orders, he decides to pursue him. ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2’ garnered favourable reviews from critics, who praised the film’s bright animation and light-hearted plot.

‘Hugo,’ the big-screen version of Brian Selznick’s 2007 historical fiction ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret,’ represents Martin Scorsese’s first foray into 3-D filmmaking. Hugo Cabret (a.k.a. Butterfield) lives alone in the Gare Montparnasse railway station and keeps all of the station’s clocks ticking. He spends his spare time attempting to fix a damaged mechanical man he and his father discovered while the latter was still alive. Hugo is offered a job in a toy store by its owner, Georges Méliès/Papa Georges, after an unsuccessful theft attempt (Ben Kingsley). Hugo befriends Georges’ goddaughter, Isabelle (Chlo Grace Moretz), and discovers that she has a heart-shaped key that he can use to switch on the automation.
Following its debut, the picture received numerous awards, including five Academy Awards. It captures the director’s childhood wonder and interest about movies. Georges Méliès was a real-life figure who made a name for himself as a filmmaker.
Jupiter Ascending (2015)
‘Jupiter Ascending,’ a lesser-known Wachowski film, is an epic space opera about Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a regular young woman from Earth who discovers she is galactic royalty. Only the genetically enhanced warrior Caine Wise (Channing Tatum) can protect her now that the armies of the most powerful empire in the known world are pursuing her. ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ like most of the Wachowskis’ prior films, features stunning special effects and is sometimes referred to as “The Matrix meets Star Wars.” Critics, on the other hand, have had a mixed reaction to the picture.
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018)
The Netflix/Warner Bros. adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s great stories, directed by Andy Serkis, did not receive the critical acclaim that the filmmakers had hoped for. ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’ is uneven and loses its way at times due to the plot’s overcomplexity, despite Serkis’ unconventional approach to the concept and an ensemble voice cast that includes Christian Bale as Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, and Serkis himself as Baloo. However, the film’s clean animation, paired with the great performances of the ensemble members, makes it a fun watch. The picture failed primarily as a result of unwanted comparisons to Disney’s 2016 adaptation of ‘The Jungle Book.’
Serkis makes certain alterations to the original storylines in his rendition. The role of John Lockwood (named after Rudyard Kipling’s father, John Lockwood Kipling) played by Matthew Rhys does not appear in the source material. Serkis and his writers reimagined the braggadocious village hunter Buldeo from the stories as a Jim Corbett want to be.
Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (2011)
The Spy Kids movies and the escapades of Carmen and Juni, the two most badass kids in the world, will be remembered by all 90s kids. ‘Spy Kids 3’ is the coolest of them all, and it is without a doubt one of the best “video game” inspired films. The new film features new characters because the children who played Carmen and Juni are no longer children, thus the title of the film is ‘Spy Kids,’ not “Spy Adults.” This new film follows two twins on a fresh mission to stop the evil Timekeeper from taking over the planet. You will undoubtedly be dissatisfied if you compare this film to the earlier instalments in the series. However, if you haven’t seen the older ones, this is definitely the best place to start.
