3D Fan Favourites - What would YOU like to see in 3D?

Updated: Oct 23, 2023

I asked a question on Facebook a little while back wondering what would be the fan favourites for 2D to 3D conversion so thought I'd share the most common requests here along with a few extra thoughts and of course some pics.


Obviously with an open question like this there's always going to be THE BIG ONES - some of which have already been converted to 3D and even had public performance but only in a very limited way. So lets take a look at the contenders.


Star Wars: Episode 4 (1977)

Star Wars Episode IV in 3D

First off this presumably also means the original cut, without all the added stuff George Lucas did in the following years. It seems inconceivable that the studio already produced 3D conversions and simply did not release them - it would be great to see a studio conversion of this actually get a release.


I don't know if they did it but there's also some opportunities to get some pop out frame breakers like the above. Come on Disney let us have them!


The Matrix

The first and lets be honest best Matrix film would certainly be a treat for the eyes in 3D - I can barely imagine how cool the bullet time shots would look as they already almost feel 3D and that's only in 2D!


Speed Racer

Now I'm ashamed to admit I've not seen this one, and was quite surprised when it came up so often in the conversation. I must track this down and give it a spin.


The Shining

Now we are in my home territory - what could be creepier than Danny riding his tricycle down those long hotel corridors? Well how about Danny riding his tricycle down those long hotel corridors in 3D!


2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey in 3D

Another Stanley Kubrick masterpiece and I think by far the one that most deserves to be 3D in this list. The framing and composition would be perfect and there's ample opportunity for all sorts of 3D depth to take us back in time and space.


This isn't a comprehensive list by any means and amongst others that came up regularly were Lord of The Rings, Back to The Future, Alien & somewhat bizarrely Lifeforce.


So if you had all the money in the world what film would you have converted?
