CGSociety and 3D World present a rundown of the Top 100 3D Movies as selected by the CG community. These are based on votes by visitors to CGSociety and exclude films like Blade Runner - although undoubtedly influential - becuase they featured only traditional effects. To qualify for inclusion on our shortlist, a movie needed to meet three criteria: to have a running time of 60 minutes or longer; to have received a full cinematic release;and to include a significant element of 3D animation or VFX work, as opposed to matte painting or compositing.
They've also have a neat time line that show release dates.
Do you know what the first feature film to use computer graphics was, do you really??
Can you guess what the number chosen film was? I was a little surprise just from listening to the influences of some of the CG lover folks I know (maybe they're a little older than they think), but it makes complete sense and is deserving of a number one spot.

Superherohype.com reports the following:
"In an interview with the USA Today about the last issue of Pia Guerra and Brian K. Vaughan's "Y: The Last Man," the director of the comic's upcoming adaptation, D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, upcoming Eagle Eye), says it might become a trilogy of films:
Caruso says he has had "preliminary discussions" with Shia LaBeouf to play Yorick.
"For me, thematically, the most important thing and the reason I want to do this is … I don't want to say it's the end of the innocence, but it's actually a man-child who has to become a real man now," Caruso says. "I think it's a really simple, beautiful theme, but at the same time, the movie's really pop-culture entertainment."
While the original plan was to squeeze the entire series into one movie, Caruso says the film will cover the first 14 issues of the comics. He adds that this opens the door for a trilogy."
This is great news, Y: The Last Man is the best thing written in pop culture in the last few years, a single movie couldn't encompasses the whole thing...though I'd be happier with a maxi-series on Showtime or HBO, a trilogy makes me feel much better.
