What Other Films From 1993 Could We Convert to 3D?

What Other Films From 1993 Could We Convert to 3D?


One of the biggest films at the box office this coming weekend will likely be the re-release of 1993's "Jurassic Park," which is getting the 3D treatment for its twentieth anniversary.

Converting an action film pitting humans against dinosaurs to 3D is almost a no-brainer. But what about the other top grossing films from that year? Would it be worth doing THEM in 3D as well? Let's take a look.

We could only see doing it for the scene in which Robin Williams (in costume as "Mrs. Doubtfire") accidentally sets his prosthetic breasts on fire. But what a moment!

THE FUGITIVE

There are a lot of scenes here that would lend themselves well to 3D, in particular the scene where the bus crashes and the train gets derailed. Also, it's just a damn good movie. Tommy Lee Jones and Harrison Ford at their best and most kick-assingest. Yes, that's a word now. Kick-assingest.

SCHINDLER'S LIST

...erp. Let's not.

THE FIRM

Of the two John Grisham legal thrillers that cracked the top ten for the year, this probably isn't the one you'd want to waste time and money converting to 3D. That is, unless you think Wilford Brimley blackmailing Tom Cruise with salacious photos is just crying out for 3D.

INDECENT PROPOSAL

We're going to say no on this one. We're tempted to say we'd like to see Demi Moore in three dimensions, hubba hubba and all that. But that's kind of creepy, and with this movie's premise the way the plot unfolds, it's already got enough of a creep factor going for it.

CLIFFHANGER

Odd as it sounds, this one would probably make the most sense. These days, a film like this would probably get greenlit on the promise of 3D alone.

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

When it comes to 3D spectacles, two names that probably WON'T pop into your head are Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Also, modern audiences would be too distracted by the fact that the plot revolves around personal ads in the newspaper and radio, two things that almost don't even exist anymore.

PHILADELPHIA

As much as we'd like to say yes because we love this film, how would you sell it? "You haven't felt discrimination and heartache…until you've felt it in 3D!"

THE PELICAN BRIEF

Speaking of Denzel, this Grisham thriller would actually do better with a 3D conversion than, say "The Firm" would. There are enough explosions and chases to at least make it interesting, right?

HONORABLE MENTION:
