Well, DW and I have just come back from seeing Disney's A Christmas Carol in digital 3D.
3D in the movies certainly has changed since my younger days! Even though you still have to wear those glasses. Or perhaps it's just the way Disney presented it this time. There was none of that "everything popping out of the screen at you" every time you took a breath. While there's still a bit of that, I didn't think it was over done at all. There is a lot of "flying over London" type of thing but it still didn't detract too much from the story in my opinion. The effect was quite good in scenes where there were a lot of people. The Christmas feast at Fezziwigs for instance. There it gave me the impression of actually being in the crowd of people.
I've got to say that I quite enjoyed the movie. Even though I'm not the world's biggest Jim Carrey fan, I thought he did a reasonable job of it in this film.
Of course, he shows best in his portrayal of Scrooge. Humbug!
All in all, an enjoyable afternoon at the movies and a delightful start to the holiday season.
Also of note. The ubiquitous "coming attractions" had the trailer for Disney's upcoming "Alice in Wonderland" (coming in March next year). This too will be in 3D. And based on what I saw in the preview, this will be a must see for me. The 3D effect they've used gave the trailer the most amazing realism. And of course, you can't go wrong with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.
Tom (... wonder if any of my lights will work this year?)
