Jim Dorey's Best 3D Movies Of 2011!!

Here's my annual look at the best of the best 3D movies of 2011! Of course it is solely my opinion and I am seeking your thoughts in the comments.

I wanted to distinguish a few things, like the best native 3D, converted 3D, animated 3D and then combine them all into one top ten list that ALSO considers how well the story was delivered. We may be a 3D site, but a bad movie made with great 3D is still a bad movie. So hopefully these lists help a bit!

Oh and I put them in reverse order to add some dramatic flare... ;-)

Here's my list of the 6 best native 3D movies of 2011 (not considering story):
6. DRIVE ANGRY
5. THE DARKEST HOUR
4. THE THREE MUSKETEERS
3. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES
2. TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON
1. HUGO

My list of the 6 best 3D animation movies of 2011 (not considering story):
6. HAPPY FEET 2
5. CARS 2
4. RIO
3. KUNG FU PANDA 2
2. PUSS IN BOOTS
1. THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN (it's hard to place a category on this!)

My list of the 6 best 3D conversion movies of 2011 (not considering story):
6. THE LION KING
5. GREEN LANTERN
4. IMMORTALS
3. THE GREEN HORNET
2. THOR
1. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PT.2

So here's my ALL-IN TOP TEN LIST (CONSIDERING THE STORY):
10. IMMORTALS ($196m)
9. THE LION KING 3D [Less impact on this list as a re-release] ($492m)
8. THE THREE MUSKETEERS ($132m)
7. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES ($1,043m)
6. THE DARKEST HOUR ($8m - just opened)
5. THOR ($449m)
4. TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON ($1,124m)
3. THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN ($271m)
2. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PT.2 ($1,328m)
1. HUGO ($52m worldwide)

And special distinction for CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS as the best 3D documentary. It was simply gorgeous!

...And let me leave you with one final thought, HUGO is not only the best 3D movie of 2011, it is the best movie of 2011 period. What say YOU?
