Had passes for a free screenin' of The Lorax yesterday mornin', and was one of the only adults in the line without a child.

Seemed to me that the movie was tryin' too hard no subtleness at all, a couple of the musical numbers were WTF?!?-ish (one of 'em downright nightmare induced!), and the 3D got a little blurry a couple of times, though that may have been because of where I was sittin' (lousy seats...wound up three rows back from the screen).

No trailers, shorts or freebies, either.

Tried to get into Wanderlust yesterday afternoon, but it sold out, three shows in a row!

Settled for the Comin' at Ya! 3D showin', with the Q&A afterward. The movie was over the top cheesy, but in a funway, and though they went back and upgraded the 3D, they didn't remove the strings holdin' up the rubber bats!

As for the Q&A, I was one of only three folks who stayed for it, everyone else walked out & past the producer durin' the credit sequences! Felt bad for the guy, since I didn't really have any questions about how to restore/upgrade a thirty year old 3D movie. Though I did learn that when doin'that sort of work, the screen is called the "soft wall."

Got a free poster out of it, though, so there's that.

Think I may see Wanderlust today, and will be gettin' together with some friends to see Act of Valor this afternoon, for sure.

- edit, to add -

Well, I got into the first show of the day for Wanderlust, and it reminded me of why I don't be pay theater prices for comedies these days. So glad I got in for free...

Met up with a couple of friends this afternoon, and saw Act of Valor. My buddy, the ex-Marine, enjoyed it, so there's that. I was able to get him in for free, too, but his wife had to pay for a ticket. I thought it was just a pure propoganda piece, since the bad guys were really bad and the good guys were really good. No gray at all...
