The visual effects in "Minority Report" were so state-of-the-art it almost seems like the film was shot in 3D! Loosely based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, this Tom Cruise vehicle focuses on a police division called PreCrime, in which criminals are arrested before they break the law! Co-starring Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Max von Sydow, the film was surprisingly prescient in its depiction of some of the technologies that are now part of our everyday lives.

Why 3D? The Washington, D.C., of 2054 desperately needs a 3D overlay. Current digital capabilities would enhance the way Tom Cruise uses hand movements to scroll through computer imagery projected in the air and the way the holographic ads he walks by on the street respond to his personal interests. We're also dying to see 3D versions of the cool pollution-free vehicles as well as the creepy spider robots.
