Movie Review: The Lorax in 3D
Today was our final day of Easter break and I found out the small town near us was showing THE LORAX in 3D. I have been avoiding the whole 3D movie craze. I have seen different 3D things in the past and have gotten queasy or a headache from watching them. I also haven't wanted to pay all the extra money to watch the movie in 3D. So, today was a treat. We had passes that we got in an auction and it was only $4 per ticket, so I figured, why not?
I was so pleasantly surprised. Technology has come a LOOONG way. I thought the 3D enhancements were excellent. I didn't get a headache or feel queasy at all. I did get a little tired of wearing the glasses, kind of like I do when I have been wearing my sunglasses for awhile. But, it really was quite fun.
The movie, of course, has a great lesson about standing up for what you believe in, as well as taking care of our natural resources. It reminded me a bit of Disney's WALL-E and what can happen if we take our world for granted. It really was a sweet story and the time flew by. The movie was also filled with fun, catchy songs that made it more a musical rather than just a movie.
If you haven't treated your family to a 3D movie yet or seen THE LORAX, I highly recommend it.
