Having seen only a few 3D films, my experience is mostly negative. They still seem to stay with the coming-at-you shtick of the 50s. More subtlety would add to the realism, but studios probably aren’t willing to pay big bucks for nuance. I thought the Star Trek Into Darkness conversion got many of the subtle shots right at least, especially with the slightly blurred foreground objects while focusing on the actor/action midscreen perspective shots, but even that was overused.
I don’t want an object coming toward me to appear to come off the screen so much as to cause that focus change perspective that your eyes naturally do in that situation.
That being said and thanks for your indulgence, for me any number of sci-fi or action films would be welcome. Initially for my list, in no particular order:
Black Sunday (1977) – IF they could redo the Kabakov Blimp Ride, helicopter towing and blimp explosion scenes to eliminate the obviously-shot-indoors blimp ride and the ridiculous reversed towing stuff. I like the blimp approaching the stadium look and they were close to getting it right, perspective and scale-wise.
Battle Of The Bulge, In Harm’s Way, Midway, Battle Of Britain, etc. – War movies could benefit from 3D, done right.
Alien
As others have mentioned; Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, Blade Runner.
Creature From The Black Lagoon – I know, but I wasn’t born yet.
CE3K
Jaws (1975) – There, I said it. Remember what you got wrong with that other one that shall not be named here, and make it work.

Creature From The Black Lagoon – I know, but I wasn’t born yet.


Not sure what you mean here - I gather from "I know" that you mean you you know it already exists in 3d, right? Are you just taking the thread title literally, as in "films you would like to see... 3D," as opposed to the sense of "films you think should be converted to 3D", and that you just haven't seen it in 3D yet? If that's the case, I could list several movies that got 3D releases but which I've seen only in 2d, or not at all.

At any rate, Creature From the Black Lagoon doesn't need a conversion; it already exists in (natively-shot) 3d, and is available on 3d Blu-ray.

You're correct, I wasn't very clear stating my case about Creature. I don't know how good its 3D was then or is now and as I have no way to watch 3D at home it may be a moot point anyway. I'm curious as to the quality of the original 3D version and if current conversion technology could improve it. Sorry if I'm rambling, I'm taking some cold medicines that make me loopy.

"The Rocky Horror Picture Show", "Grease" and "The Sound of Music" would be fun. (Do they do musicals in 3-D?)
--------------------------------------------------------------
"Red Garters" was too originally, I think.


Actually, while RED GARTERS was initially announced as a 3-D production, it was shot and exhibited flat. You were probably thinking of THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE. This Paramount film was the first 1950s musical in 3-D, beating MGM's KISS ME KATE to the screen by a month.

THE FRENCH LINE (1954) was another 3-D musical.
