In light of Jurassic Park being re-released in 3D over the weekend, it got me thinking, what other classic movies are worthy of a 3D release? Sure, you could do it to every movie ever, but that is just silly and a waste of time. Obviously some movies are better equipped for the 3D experience, Jurassic Park for example was a great choice; big ass dinosaurs jumping around corners flashing their toothy smiles makes for some intense grip your seat tightly moments. Therefore I have compiled a list of other classic films I think we should re-watch in 3D and provided some of their best clips. Let's start with those that just missed the cut, for some reason or another.
Independence Day (1996) - If only to see Will Smith punch an alien.
True Lies (1994) - If not for the constant barrage of consistent cable air time in the 2000's and the tiredness of the movie as a result, this flick was a decently big success originally and offered a lot of action. All you really would need in 3D though is the scene where Arnold fires the guy attached to a missile into a helicopter. That would make for one of the cheesiest lines ever, mixed with some of the greatest use of 3D in film.
Indiana Jones (1981) - Unfortunately this franchise was bastardized with the latest film, and the option to see it live at any Disney theme park doesn't help either.
And now to the top 5 ...
5) Jumanji (1995)
Robin Williams is such a character and watching clips of this flick reminded me how charming and fun he makes this story. A really solid family movie from top to bottom, not to mention with all the stampedes, earthquakes and monkeys, I am quite shocked this movie hasn't yet been offered in a 3D variety. Studios love the wide appeal of a PG film, and I think it is only a matter of time before this thought becomes a reality ...<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/pmLP0QQPqFw?rel=0" frameborder="0" width="600" height="450"></iframe>
