BOLT in 3D

Despite wind that could have easily picked us up had we not been driving a Suburban, I took the kids to see BOLT — in 3D. The movie was good, but seeing Weston and Julia in their “one-size-fits-all” glasses was priceless. At one of the more climactic moments, the wind knocked out the power. They got the lights on quick enough but were having trouble with the dual projectors or something, so it took a bit before the movie started again. Meanwhile, Julia and Weston caught on to the fact that they were the only ones in the room without a $6 tub of popcorn ($5.75 if you want a small) and $50 drink (OK, I didn’t even look at how much the drinks were). They started to whine a bit, but when the movie started again, it was as though their brains turned off with the lights and they forgot all about it. As a bit of a concession, we stopped at McDonalds afterwards and had some cheap, greasy, delicious fries. That, and a sundae to wash it down, and we were ready to head home for dinner.
