  1. Gravity
    was probably the best use of 3D in my opinion. Another great use of 3D was Life
    of Pi from last year. It did a lot of interesting things, like going outside
    the aspect ratio for the flying fish scene. It also took advantage of the depth
    of field 3D provides to give a more magical atmosphere.

    • Yeah I couldn’t believe I forgot to mention Life of Pi. That was an incredible experience a movie I loved but somehow it slipped my mind.
