The Best: #9, 'Ghosts of the Abyss'

James Cameron developed the 3D technique he perfected with Avatar with this 2003 documentary that took 3D cameras two miles below the sea to find the ship he immortalized in 1997's Oscar-winning Titanic. Cameron had used footage of the real ship in his 1997 film, but the technology didn't exist at the time for cameras to go deep into the ship. The result is historic and eye-popping. How could it not be, since Cameron filmed the expedition in digital 3D for IMAX screens. The glasses are a small price to pay for the reach-out-and-touch experience. The ghost of the great ship that went down in 1912 will haunt your dreams.
