15. Resident Evil 4
Arguably the worst of the films I’ve listed, but I’m a fan of the series. Basically I saw it for the cool action bits.
They were cool. The rest of the movie was not. For last place I gave it this cool moving banner image.
14. Underworld 4
Kate Beckinsale + Leather + Guns + Action = one IMAX ticket please.
13. I Am Legend
I saw it for the TDK prologue. It was a decent film with an ATROCIOUS ENDING.
12. Christmas Carol 3D
I took 2 of my friends to see this as their first IMAX film. I really love the story and Jim Carrey and the movie was really good.
I mean, it’s no “Muppets Christmas Carol,” but it’s nice. 😀
11. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
Almost entirely worthless, but the magic scenes are so wonderful in IMAX. Part 2 is better (and thus ranked higher).
10. Mission Impossible IV
Saw it for the Prologue to TDKR after I had already seen the prologue via winning a contest. Still a damn good movie. Almost the best of the 4 (that goes to 2).
9. Star Trek
One of the best movie opening scenes ever. Such a brilliant movie. It’s even better in IMAX. The sound, that score! Can’t wait for “INTO DARKNESS!”
8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Basically non-stop magical action. This was brilliant in 3D. The magic really popped. Kudos to the conversion people on this one.
7. The Matrix Revolutions
MY FIRST IMAX MOVIE. This series was amazing.
I saw this one so much I could quote a lot of it and even used the monologue from the end in an acting class (why mr. Anderson? WHY?!).
This was for my birthday and for research (he got out. The kids are wearing different clothes, Michael Caine was never in the dreams, and the top wobbled. HE GOT OUT.).
5. The Dark Knight
This phenomenal little devil was higher on the list until…
…this guy knocked it down. Roger Deakins’ cinematography in IMAX. Adele singing in IMAX. SO MUCH WIN.
3. THE AVENGERS 3D
Saw this at midnight the day I graduated from college. Best comic-book movie ever made.
2. Tron: LEGACY
This movie was made for IMAX. So many bright lights as well as a pounding Daft Punk soundtrack. One of my favorites of the IMAX movies I’ve seen.
1. AVATAR 3D
Did you really think something else was going to win?
This movie revolutionized the way 3D was used and managed to mesmerize me twice in IMAX 3D and once in regular 3D.
Still the most mesmerizing movie experience I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to head back to Pandora eventually.
Say what you will about the story, but you know the movie was incredible.
So there’s my list! Hope you enjoyed reading this! Have you seen another film in IMAX that I haven’t? What was it, and was it better than these?
Let me know in the comments!
