    Can anyone recommend a good 3D Blu-ray I should buy to try out my new TV when it arrives?

    I'm looking at something sub £15 and have two kids so a family movie would be great, although I generally watch more movies than anyone else here.

    My list so far;

    A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures
    Ice Age 3
    Open Season
    Final Destination 5
    IMAX Deep Sea 3D

    Read that Turtle's Tale has great pop effects and Open Season is pretty good - but I've never seen either of these movies. I enjoy the Final Destination and Ice Age series.

    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks

    If you want something live action rather than animated, Final Destination 5 is a good one to go for, especially if you're already a fan of the series, it's one of the better ones IMO, some good 3D too.

    Hugo is a bit deep for kids & they wouldnt get the subject matter not really a kids film...Give Cap A a spin or Despicable Me the Lion King is a stunning 3d disc as is Tangled.. ...

    I was also looking at Despicable Me actually which is another film I like.

    I've tried getting these demo discs QuestShield but nowhere seems to sell them including eBay.

    Thanks for all the recommendations so far. I'm looking them all up on blu-ray review sites :)

    Definitely Despicable Me, good family film and the end credits is a 3D demo. And / or flying monsters 3D, my kids love that and tangled 3D.

    Watched Coraline last night. Great movie!! Don't be put off by the initial flatness of the 3d as this is quite deliberate. Can get this for under a tenner!!

    Most Disney animated 3d blu's are great especially Tangled & most of Dreamworks like how to train your dragon & megamind but they are all quite pricey!!
    You won't go wrong with Sammy & open season, they both have great 3d, especially Sammy!!
    David Attenboroughs kingdom of plants is stunning & is under £15 at the mo.
    For live action you can't miss Hugo as it has the best 3d bar Avatar.
