Nobody shares my excitement? BAH! Well I went, I saw, I was pleased.
Though plenty of theaters locally here played it Orion and I still drove about a hour to go see it in Corvallis, because we were meeting up with my buddies Marcus and Robbie and they live all the way in Salem, so it was like the halfway point. On the way we picked up my friend Amy, so it was a big old party of us nerds in the theater. Marcus and I so kept singing along.
They had these awesomely ridiculous bad ass sunglasses that you use for the 3D effect so we all looked pimping in them. Well except me apparently, I was told I fail at being badass, mainly my hair. I have mad scientist hair. Pictures below!
How was the 3D itself? Actually allot more impressive than I expected it to be. There's still some glitches in it, might mostly be due to the fact they edited a 10 year old stop motion movie to try to fit the technology. So scenes where characters moved too fast was a bit of a headrush, and images doubled over once in a while, but for the most part it's pretty damn sweet. It really added depth, things really felt closer or farther away and stuff jumped out at you and all that jazz. So it was really neat for me personally to get to see my favourite movie in a new light, especially since I saw that movie like 50 times and thus know it all by heart so not many surprises left. Movies made specifically for this format should prove to be most awesome, the Disney logo itself at the beginning made us all go "ooooo!"
Don't try watching it without the glasses though, is crazy looking. It's a big improvement from those damn silly red blue glasses. Only in theater for three weeks though, so you gotta see it while you can, good news is there are no previews. Bad thing is you do pay like 2 extra dollars for the glasses. Plus seeing movies in general is expensive, but for me it was totally all worth it.
Now I really gotta make sure I don't make a fancomic, cause trust me, for as long as I have been a fan of it I have had an epic one brewing in my head.
