When we're in Myrtle Beach I always promise to go see one movie. I despise sitting in movie theaters, but the ones here are so comfortable and nice that I don't mind. Unfortunately there wasn't anything playing that we really cared about. Ok, anything playing that I really cared about. Drew will see just about anything. But there was one movie in particular that he requested and I gave in. I didn't do it gracefully either, but we did go and see the movie he asked for.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3-D
It was our first 3-D movie. The glasses weren't very comfortable since they had to fit over my regular glasses, but after a while it didn't bother me. Mostly because the movie was hilarious! I loved it! If I had known that Martin Freeman (Dr. Jon Watson in Sherlock) and David Tennant (previously Dr. Who) had lent their voices to the movie I might not have been so pissy about having to go see a kid's movie.
Yes, there's a couple jokes that only grown-ups or geeks will get, but there wasn't a lot of them. It was just funny! It was the type of movie I imagined Monty Python would make for kids. It was goofy. I encourage everyone to go see it, 3-D or not. Then you'll understand what Ham Night means! I need to have Ham Night.
The 3-D was neat! It was a lot better than I expected. The last time I saw a 3-D movie you had to wear the blue and red glasses. This was a LOT better than that!
Also worth noting --- the preview for Rise of the Guardians looks incredible!!!!!!!!!! Check out the trailer at http://www.riseoftheguardians.com/. The trailer playing on a huge 3-D screen blew me away! I cannot wait for that!
The preview for Brave looked good too. http://disney.go.com/brave/index.html
Meanwhile...IT'S HAM NIGHT!
