The 10 best 3D movies of 2020
by Eguaogie Eghosa Oct 14, 2021 Views (247)
If you enjoy 3D movies, you'll be happy to know that there are so many available these days. In fact, computer graphics and visual effects have become such an important part of the filmmaking process that it's simpler to list the films that don't use them than those that do. With the advancement of technology, even films with modest budgets may boast stunning images.

Of course, a lot of CGI isn't a guarantee of success (rather the contrary in many situations), but if you go to the movies for escapism regularly, 2020 has plenty of eye candy.

1. Onward
Onward tells the story of two elf brothers, Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, who set out on a quest to resurrect their dead father for a single day by using his spell, magical staff, and an enchanted stone. When the spell only does half the job, the two set out on a mission to see if their suburban fantasy world still has any magic.

2. The Invisible Man
The Invisible Man sets Elizabeth Moss against a sociopathic ex who taunts her from beyond the grave in yet another retelling of the classic H.G. Wells tale.

It won't be on the same CG scale as Paul Verhoeven's spectacular 2000 film, Hollow Man, with only one VFX vendor on the job – Australia-based Cutting Edge – but this unsettling psychological vengeance story is tailor-made for some subtle and flawless visual deception.

3. A Quiet Place Part 2
In 2018, John Krasinski made his directorial debut with the tense thriller, 'A Quiet Place', in which he co-starred with his wife Emily Blunt. A family is forced to live in silence due to an infestation of alien monsters who hunt by sound alone. After grossing $340 million on a $17 million budget, a sequel was a foregone conclusion. The film picks up after the events of the first, with Blunt shepherding her three children as they flee the family home.

4. The New Mutants
We follow a brat-pack of young TV and film stars as they strive to flee a frightening covert facility intended to make mutants 'better.' The film has a haunted house air to it, and it's a departure from the previous X-Men films' colorful bombast. You can't make a mutants film without CG, and with visuals from DNEG, Method Studios, and MPC, there should be plenty of fantastical powers on exhibit.

5. Artemis Fowl
Artemis Fowl II, played by newcomer Ferdia Shaw, is a 12-year-old criminal mastermind with superhuman intelligence. Fowl discovers the existence of fairies (long pushed underground by human avarice), catches one, and holds her for ransom to restore the family fortunes. The Lower Elements Police (LEP) are summoned, and they set out to sabotage Artemis' objectives.

6. Black Widow
Although Avengers: End Game marked the end of the Avengers story arc, the MCU continues with Natasha Romanoff's standalone adventure, which is neatly positioned between the events of the Civil War and Infinity War. The lead KGB assassin is on the run and returns home to wrap up some old loose ends with her Black Widow, Yelena Bolova, and the aging superhero Red Guardian, played by David Harbour.

7. Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman, set in 1984, gives the filmmaker's carte blanche to include time travel and colorful pop culture references, but we're here for the action: explosions, slo-mo bullet time, golden lassoing, and so on. You may thank DNEG and Method Studios, as well as Framestore, who are regulars on DC films.

8. Godzilla
Godzilla faces off against Mothra, Rodan, and his adversary, the three-headed King Ghidorah, in the new Godzilla film. With scenes of skyscraper-tall monsters wreaking devastation on cities, the film enlists the help of several companies, including MPC, DNEG, Method Studios, Rodeo FX, and Raynault VFX.

9. Morbius
Morbius tells the story of a scientist who, in an attempt to heal his own unusual blood illness, becomes infected with a vampiric strain. Biochemist Michael Morbius (Jared Leto), who was once unable to walk, suddenly develops a chiseled body and superhuman abilities.

10. Bloodshot
Bloodshot, based on the popular Valiant comic character, stars Vin Diesel as Ray Garrison, a soldier who comes back from the dead with nanotechnology that grants him super-strength and cures his wounds. Garrison, who is part Universal Soldier, part Robocop, and part Deadpool, begins to recall his history and vows vengeance on the individuals who slaughtered him and his wife.

Not every VFX sequence is flawless, but they're all fairly decent in general, and any contemporary making-of video will show you how much CG is used in movies or TV. As well as in seemingly ordinary minor crowd scenes are populated with virtual characters. Shots populated with tanks and helicopters frequently lack real-world hardware; skylines and cloudscapes are added in a post, and even minor crowd scenes are populated with virtual characters. The distinction between real and false has never been hazier.
