Top 6 must-see 3D Blu-ray collections to play on VR headsets
You've seen Avatar. If you haven't, you aren't alive. What can I really say about it? Controversial and somewhat criticized for it's redundant, cliche and typical story telling but lauded for it's unbelievably good effects, world building and innovated use of 3D (all of which set a new standard in Hollywood). I think Avatar is a very entertaining film as a whole. The story may be predictable and somewhat derivative of other work but it's setting is so beautiful, detailed and progressive that it's hard not to at least be entertained by it. While the movie's final act doesn't play nearly as well as the rest of the film (especially on repeat viewings) I think there is enough here to give the movie a more than enthusiastic review. Avatar needs to be seen to be enjoyed... and seeing it on this disc may be your best best. Avatar is a creative success that doesn't necessarily aim too high in terms of narrative. I think this was a wise decision as it may have been overwhelming to dig into the world of Pandora if it were any different.
2. X-Men: Apocalypse
X-Men: Apocalypse is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p. This 8th entry in the X-Men franchise serves it's purpose and offers up a tight and decent story with solid performances. Hugh Jackman get's his Wolverine cameo and Oscar Issac's as the villain is well acted and a tad mellow-dramatic as the film plays out. Fox's disc features an very vibrant and smooth picture presentation along with an above average 7.1 DTS audio track. Dialog is clear and surrounds are active. Bonus features cover the normal spectrum of info which makes this a deserved spot on your shelf!
Deadpool is a comic book movie riddled with violence, blood, profanity and a bit of nudity. Despite that, this film was a huge success and is the 2nd highest grossing R rated movie of all time in America and THE highest grossing R rated movie of all time worldwide. It shattered everyone's expectations. Based of the trailers, I thought it would just be a fun little movie but it was way better that just that. It's funny, has great action, and everyone (including me) was so glad that they made this R. Picture quality is amazing. Highly recommended for comic book fans and film fans alike.
4. Star Trek Beyond
Star Trek Beyond is directed by Justin Lin, and writers Simon Pegg and Doug Jung who did their deep dive homework and their love for the show, its characters, and tropes shows up in nearly every scene. You could fill a basket with the Easter Eggs sprinkled around, too- everything from Picard's Stargazer to a 'giant green hand' are peppered in the story. The action is fierce, and a little overwhelming at times. Scenes shoot by so fast during the takedown of the Enterprise that a second viewing is needed to see who did what and where. That's where the Blu Ray will come in- you'll be able to catch those other little moments that fly past almost too quickly to catch. In a word, this movie is an excellent addition to the Star Trek universe, which definitely a must-see for any dedicated fan.
The animated film Zootopia from Disney really knocks it out of the park in almost every way imaginable. The story is great, the moral is perfect and delivered so very precisely to be appreciated by both adults and children, and the characters are flawed and enjoyable. The world is immensely fun to watch and pick up on things in the background as well as just see the intricate design of this film. They really did a great job with the world building for this film, as it feels like an entire believable world. This film is another in the long line of animated hits in the new Disney Renaissance, which I am told is called the Disney Revival.
6. Finding Dory
Disney's Blu-ray 3D release of Finding Dory is superficially derivative, which has released 13 years after Finding Nemo. It talks about how Dory has been on ocean advantures to find her parents together with her friends after she suffered the short memories all of her childhood. This film finds its place and success beyond the cruder story details and down within the characters themselves. The film is more a journey of the spirit than it is the body, and with excellent depth of character support complimenting the outer layers, the film plays very well and works as a quality sequel to a great original.

Tips: If you like, you can optimize the output video quality and size by click "Settings" to adjust bitrate, frame rate, encoder, resolution etc. You should understand the loss in VR resolution because of the split of screen across two eyes, for example, PlayStation VR features a 1920 x 1080, OLED display split vertically to deliver a resolution of 960 x 1080 to each eye.

Tips to healthly adjust to VR headset before jumping into 3D movies world
Take the time to get adjusted to the virtual reality experience before using VR headsets extensively. Begin by using VR headsets for only a few minutes at a time. Use that time to get adjusted to how the device reacts to your movements. As you become accustomed to the virtual reality experience, you can begin increasing the amount of time you use VR headsets. Take frequent breaks while using VR headsets. If you experience nausea, discomfort, eye strain, or disorientation, immediately discontinue using VR headsets. Each person reacts differently to virtual reality so you should base the frequency and length of breaks on what is right for you.
