I like that I wrote 3-D three times in this blog title. That's really 3-D overkill right there.
Anyway, we went to see Bolt 3D last weekend because Journey to the Centre Of the Earth awoke a long dormant love for anything 3-D. This love affair began a long time ago when I went to Disney World as a child and saw a 3-D film starring Michael Jackson.... Michael Jackson. Amazing. I have no idea what the film was about (my best guess would be space), but I know that at one point I shrieked loud enough to hurt the eardrums of those close to me and ducked when an asteroid flew out of the screen. That is about as exciting as it could possibly get for a smaller version of me.
While Journey to the Centre of the Earth's big yo-yo scene (you can imagine how that worked!) wasn't quite as exciting as asteroids, space and Michael Jackson, it was still pretty good. Bolt on the other hand... I enjoyed the film, but the 3-D really added very little. Apart from a headache at the end courtesy of the brilliant Buddy Holly specs you get. There was no big dog nose coming out of the screen and sniffing you... no hamster in a ball rolling right towards you... no explosions shooting bits of shrapnel at you... All in all, a little flat, which is ironic I guess.
