Being the curmudgeon that I am, taking the kids to see Bolt and then discovering that our theater was charging an extra $2.50 apiece for the “rental” of the 3-D glasses completely annoyed me. Also, I wasn’t expecting much from the 3-D experience, itself.
Nothing made me feel better about the extra money we had to plunk down, but the 3-D turned out to be surprisingly good. Much better than the stuff I remember from my childhood. (You know, the movies where the 3-D effects were created using red and blue lines, and also dinosaurs.) And my kids actually cheered when the preview for Monsters vs. Aliens came on and and announced that it, too, would be in 3-D.
Or maybe they were just cheering for the movie itself. Check this out:
And now I see that some of my favorite actors (hello, Rainn Wilson) are part of the project. Really, do I have to wait until March??
I’m putting this one on my calendar.
