15. The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
Director: Steven Spielberg
Stars: Daniel Craig, Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis
Despite a marketplace crowded with quick 3D retrofits of otherwise undeserving films (think The Three Musketeers and Shark Night 3D), 2011 was a great year for 3D movies, with Hugo, Pina, and Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the famed comic books from Belgian artist Hergé as its highlights. Channeling the same kind of family-friendly adventure that The Polar Express offered seven years earlier, Spielberg's CGI spectacle benefited from advances in technology and the director's penchant for adventure films, with excitement hitting from every angle.
