movie time

The other day I was eating some apples and peanut butter while Jay was cleaning up in the other room. A commercial came on that said "this weekend is your last chance to see Coraline in 3-d." Even though he was in another room and my mouth was full, he knew that I shot him a panicked look. "Don't worry, we'll go see it." he shouted. So today we did.

See? 3-D glasses.

That's the snow from outside reflecting in mine.

The movie was good. (For the record, everything is better in 3-d. It was like looking through those old skool viewmasters.) I read the book and really had to try not to freak out with things were different. Like when they invented a supporting character! Or that the family was now from Michigan instead of England. But the handmade animation was cool. It was a nice mix between the Nightmare Before Christmas, the Others, and Beetlejuice. It was creepy enough to be entertaining, but a kid could still watch it. I recommend it.

So now, I've seen 2 movies in Michigan. Both of them were in 3-d. This is a good trend. However, last time I must not have gone into the bathroom. I'm pretty sure I would have remembered this:

There's a giant curved red bench that you can see in the corner there. But I really like that whole "infinity" effect what with the lights and mirrors and space and whatnot.

(As always, click on the photos to enlarge.)

I've never seen a movie in 3d. I've been in theme park 3d theatres but it's not the same. I'm lame aren't I?

The 1st one I ever saw was Journey to the Center of the Earth, a few months ago. :)
