That's a really sad simile, isn't it? Or is it an example of anthropomorphism? I don't think so. I just really like the word "anthropomorphism".
What was I saying? Oh yeah. 3-D. I went to see My Bloody Valentine 3-D over the weekend, and it rocked the house! Oh, it wasn't a good movie. Far from it, in fact. It probably wouldn't be a stretch to call it terrible. But the 3-D fun made up for it all. It made it awesome!
Here's a bit of Earl trivia for ya: I had never seen a 3-D movie in the theater before this weekend. Nope, never. Me...a child of the 70's and 80's (well, I wasn't exactly a child in the 80's) had never seen a 3-D film in the theater before. I saw a few on video without the glasses, and I watched a kids movie a year or so ago on DVD that gave me a headache. But never in the theater.
Apparently 3-D effects have gotten much, much better over the past 25 years or so. Now it isn't just a handful of special effects that pop out every once in a while. The entire film was in 3-D. Every shot in every scene. Made for some very cool effects.
But you know the best part of seeing this particular film in the theater? I saw it in Jamaica, Queens in the middle of the day and me and my buddy were the only two white dudes in the entire building. One minute into the film we knew we were in the right place at the right time. Chatter and talking back to the film were accepted, even encouraged. When I'm seeing a piece of crap film like that I like to treat the viewing like my own personal episode of MST-3000. Slyde knows what I'm talking about. Ask him about the time we saw Cliffhanger in the theater sometime. That was a classic adventure.
My advice: If you want to check your brain for a little while and go along for the roller coaster, then go see this film.
(This is the part of the post when Slyde decides that he is gonna trash me in the comments section for going to see it without him. Sorry, dude.)
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the anthropomorphic lemmings are doing it.
