As I drive to the theater I’m wondering why I’m going to see a sequel to a movie that sucked? I rationalize it’s for the mere eye candy pleasure of it. I also wonder why I’m going to see it in 3D since the last movie I tried to watch in 3D (Ghost Rider 2) I walked out, not because the movie sucked, I never got that far, but because the 3D sucked. I also remember complaining (with the rest of the world) about how Clash of the Titans (2010) did their 3D in post, which made it suck even worse, and that was hard to do. So with all this sucking, and none of it the good kind, why I’m I going? I don’t know.
Early afternoon, the theater is deserted of employees and patrons. I flag down a girl with eye contact and a hand gester, she is opening boxes off in the distance, she looks at me suprised, and then runs off into another room. Strange. Then a man appears in front of me seemingly out of thin air.
I ask ”Can I get one for Titans 3D please?” He responds “Now?”.
Holy crap was this movie awful. Not for the lack of it being Hollywood, everyone knew how to do there jobs on the set to create a product marketed as a movie, but this was just a job, a paycheck to everyone involved, what crap. How can so much shiny action cause so much yawning?
But you know what? The 3D was superb! Excellent! The glasses were different. Not all glasses are created equal apparently. This was the Warwick Grand Cinema in Australia, my go to 3D theater now. And I must write down the details of thier 3D so I can check other theaters to make sure it is the same. I will post the 3D specifications soon!
